    I have lights on my dash for all functions, no speeds. the def button clicks as i am pressing it.

    the battery was replaced because, initially ( am) the car wouldnt start. Didnt even seem like it was turning over but I persisted and it finally started! I drove to the auto parts store, purchaced a battery and they put it in for me. It took about 15 mins total. I dont know if the battery was fully discharged?

    If I have it on fresh air cycle, the car will warm up slightly but will not get any warmer

    Do you still have any lights on dash (for heater/a/c, etc.) i.e for the features that are 'not working'?
    -does the fan run? speeds?

    Why did you replace the battery?
    Did they do a battery diagnostic (load) test? what did it reveal?
    or did they just sell you a replacement battery for $100?
    was the battery discharged fully?

    When you checked the fuses...did you check for an inline fuse in the
    battery wires? (look about 6 inches from the battery itself for another

    sorry for all of the questions, but the basic problem of not starting might or might not have anything to do with the battery....which now appears to have tripped/created a few other related? or unrelated? issues
    -I'll help you if I can

My 2002 gmc sonoma (extended cab sls) will not start i have changed plugs and wires fuel pump and fuel filter i have done oil change and air filter change. the truck will fire if i give it a spray off...

My engine light in my 2002 GMC Sonoma has been on for the past four weeks. Yesterday I had an oil change done on my truck with a local mechanic. He turned the engine light off, but it came on soon after leaving his shop.
This morning I went to start my truck and there was NO power whatsoever. After repeatedly turning the key, I soon saw a slight movement on the battery display, but no lights would come on. It just seemed like it wasn't getting any power. I changed the battery two years ago, so it should be fine.
Eventually, the truck received full power and started, more less out of no where. It wouldn't hold an idle and would just die if i took my foot off the gas.
Hopefully someone has a solution for me.

2002 Hyundai Sonata "battery" light

The Alternator may not be charging at the proper level. If the car is running while you're trying to open the sunroof or turn on the defroster, then the battery light has nothing to do with those and they are separate problems. Have an ASE Certified mechanic check the charging system.

While driving @ nigh, lights dimmed, and eventually engine died. It was previously having startup problems. New starter installed before above problem occurred.

Dim lights while driving means your car is running off the battery and the alternator is shot, which is why it's hard to start and the lights go dim, you drain the battery while driving and the alternator is not charging it back up.

Hyundai Sonata 2001, was left with a door ajar

i would suggest you recharge the battery overnight, this should stop the hazzard lights activating as they do when battery level is too low.

I have a 2002 ford focus. This morning it made a clicking sound and would not start. About 20 minutes later it started, I turned it back off and it started again. What could the problem be??? I am afraid...

Your battery is dying. It is also possible that its the alternator but if the battery is original it is almost certainly the battery and it will likely do it again until the battery is replaced. The clicking sound you heard is the starter solenoid trying to start the car (but failing). The reason it started later is because the internal temperature of the battery had risen a enough to allow the solenoid to "pull in" and start the car. Any autoparts store can test the battery/alternater for free and confirm which is the problem.

Won't start after battery died and recharged

Sounds like low voltage.
Get a boost from another car with a good set of cables.
Once started check voltage with booster car disconnected.
Is it around 14 volts?
If so,the truck is charging, so it may be time for a new battery.

If the voltage is at 12 or lower while running the truck is not charging.
May be time for a new alternator.

The battery should have charged enough in 1 hour to start the truck.
You may need a battery and alternator.

Vehicle stalls in the morning

autozone can tell you what is wrong but only if the light is on, they can check your alternator,battery and even your starter for no charge.
