Not sure but it could be your alternator. Mine is out right now and we are in the process of replacing it ourselves as the shop said it would be $495.00 to fix. We are having trouble getting out right now as it is a tight area and finally decided we would have to take the radiator out too.

Why my car is dead after sitting for 3 days. when first hooked up jumper cables the interior lights came on then went off and wouldnt even turn over


If your battery is dead after 3 days it's probably getting stuffed or else you left something on. Anyway jump starting should work regardless. How good are your jumper leads? You need a pretty heavy set to start a car not those skinny things you get at super cheap auto stores. Hook them up and start car you're jumping off and run it at a high idle for about 5 min then try and start your car. That should put a base charge into your battery and it should go. If not buy a new battery.

My engine won"t turn over on my 97 cadillac


It could be the starter. It could be a bad battery cable connection. Have you tried jump starting the engine. If it starts, then most likely it's to do with the battery or charging system.

When trying to start my 94 DeVille it was completely dead. Absolutely no dashboard lights or other electrical response except for a very faint but high pitched noise that seemed to be coming from the...


Sounds as if the Alternator is not charging, alltough it could be a bad battery. Check the connections on the battery and make sure the cables are tight. Jump the car again, and if it starts check the alternator for output, it should be putting out close to 17 volts if the battery is dead. If the alternator charges then you probably have a battery problem, and need to replace the battery.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

Battery went dead, Jump started but now check engine light on


First, you need to determine why the battery went dead...put a volt meter across the battery terminals and verify that it is making above 13v and less than 14v while running. Also, the alternator is designed to maintain the state of charge in a battery, it will never fully charge it. To avoid overtaxing the alternator and shortening the live of the battery, always re-charge with a battery charger after needing a jump.
(doing this about every two/three months will extend life of battery...makes up for time spent listening to radio etc with engine off)

Cutlass supreme wont start


It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.
