    i have the same problem but havent changed the battery yet as i have been given 3 possible reasons for it, our breakdown assistance RAC told me the battery isnt holding a charge, an auto electrician told me there is an intermittent drain of some sort on the battery and amechanc blames the alternator, unlike you mi havent been assured of the problem and didnt want to buy a battery and find it wasnt to blame. my car has been acting strangly for a couple of weeks before the starting problem, things like my window wouldnt go back up until after a few minutes, my radio goes on and off and my speedo doesnt come on sometimes but all other instruments are fine its very odd sometimes when it fails to start the alarm set starts ringing even though the car has never made the sound before i dont know what to suggest i am at a loss. ann.

Sorry, but it sounds like the altenantor not the battery. most autoparts stores will test them for free, but you'll have to take them out yourself. goodluck

Why wouldn't it start/restart?

When you got the jump start, you were able to drive while the alternator tried to charge the dead battery. After you stopped at the other end, the battery died completely and may have shorted internally, which explains why your vehicle could not be jump started again. Obviously, that very dead battery will havet o be replaced.

Mazda wont start, brand new battery

sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

Battery drain

Unless you used the correct procedure on jump starting there is a possibility that you have corrupted the CPU program. Use a code reader to reset the CPU. Be careful and follow the correct to connect up a jump start battery as it causes a power surge which is deadly to the CPU.

Where is the fuel cutoff switch on a 92 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue

Hi Big bang, Is your vehicle a diesel? If it's petrol injection the fuel cut off is not a separate switch. When you turn off the engine you also turn off the power to the injectors and therefore cut the fuel feed. If the engine is dieseling after turning off, I believe you have a problem with a leaking injector. This will also become evident when starting as the engine will take longer to fire, as it will have lost fuel rail pressure. Regards John

I tried to jump a friends car,it didnt start so we got a new battery.on the way to get her battery my ac wasnt blowing right then battery light cam on.after fixing friends car got in my olds and it ...

clean and tighten all your battery connections and fully charge it,, when you get it charged , have it LOAD tested, you may have a dead cell in it, once you know you have a good , fully charged battery ,, test the battery posts with a meter,, you should get a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts, if not, your alternator isn't charging correctly,, ( note,, use extreme care when jumping another car, a single back feed into your car could fry the computer,,

Driving and shut off while driving could turn on with key but here clicking sounds wouldnt turn over would this be the pcm

Sound like the alternator went bad and is no longer charging. Are the headlights dim? Have you tried jump starting? Have you measured battery voltage while you try to crank it over? If it drops below 12 volts the battery is dead. If it starts with a jump you should see around 14 volts at the battery with the vehicle running. If you see less the alternator is no longer charging.

Just brought a 95 jeep cherokee was left for like 8 month so dead battery jumped it and started 1st time with alarm goin and alarm wouldnt stop so had to drive it to mine like that soon as i got to mine...

Try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. Usually that will re-set the security system. Also try the rear hatch lock as sometimes that is used instead of driver door.
