Greetings!

When the battery terminals were replaced, be sure to check that all the wiring was correctly installed. (Pos+ to Pos+ and Neg- to Neg-, etc.)

Sounds like something got missed and the ignition system is not working... be sure to check the main fuses and replace any that are blown.

Cheers, Jay

Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.

Getting one click sound when trying to start truck


Dead Battery. Try jump starting, then run it by any good parts store and have charging system tested and battery "load tested". Most parts stores (Autozone, Advance, etc..) will do this FREE

My car is fine when i jump it. but if i shut it off and turn it on SOMETIMES it will be dead. i went to autozone when it started and had it checked and the check said everything was good but i continue to...


It sounds like you need to take your battery terminals off and clean your posts and terminals.Sometimes the simplest things can stop you in your tracks. The Autozone should have been able to tell you what the code meant. If your battery is going dead but your alternator and battery are good. Carefully check your fuses . not the regular ones , the block fuses . You could have an alternator fuse that is blown. Even though everything is working the juice just is not getting to the battery. The charge light on the dash may not tell you if the fuse is blown.

My 2004 mini cooper will not take a jump. The car was running fine. I ran into a store and 3 minutes later attempted to start it and NOTHING. So I attempted to jump it, Mini will not take a jump. Any idea...


If you are trying to jump from the factory "Jump start" terminals and nothing is working, You should suspect your cable to battery connections. Remove the battery cables from the battery and clean the battery posts and the cable terminals. (Auto parts stores sell a very inexpensive tool to do this) Reinstall and tighten the terminals.

2001 isuzu rodeo doesnt always start. new


Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.

No power....no click.....no anything....


yes this car has everything electrical even transmission shifter.if the battery were totally dead it will take long time to revive it, even if it comes back most never do but jumping the battery terminals should let you shift it into neutral unless the cables you have are bad,.load test the battery if its good than check for bad fuses and bad connections.

Will not start, jumped barely turn over once lights radio work when jumped.


Dead battery... Sometimes if the battery is very low then it must sit with the jumpers on for a few minutes to charge the battery. If everything worked fine after the engine started then the alternator is working ok. Check the battery terminals for corrosion and clean as necessary.

Radio will not work


It could be a fuseabel link in your cars wiring system that is causing the problem...you will have to get an ohmeter and test both the main power wire and the ground wire and make sure there is current...If that doesn't turn up a result then you can always install a positive wire from your ignition from the "ACC" terminal to a fused wire and bypass the whole system. You will also need a ground wire somewhere close to the unit itself. Do not link directly to your battery terminals or you will get a "HUM" in your sound system becasue of your alternator. Good Luck!
