My car wont start it have to be jumped off and when i get it jumped off it will start but will not start again after i turn it off. i replaced the battery and it still does the same thing. i saw some smoke...


No because then it wouldn't jump. Does the vehicle even turn over? Is the battery dead and you are supplying it electricty by jumping it? If so check for a draw on the battery, loose or corroded battery terminal ends, and the alternator output.

I was putting in a new car stereo and when I went to start my car it wouldn't start. I got a jump start from a friend and that did nothing as well. I did hear a little zap when I put in the stereo...


check it out with a multimeter ,but i think your jump leads may not be any good and you have just flattened the battery ,but check the big fuses in the power distribution box under the bonnet

I went to start my 92 lumina and it wouldn't start... the battery was dead, so I jumped it with a jump box and it was fine... I drove it to the store and back. 2 days later the battery was dead again...


first you half to determine if the alternater is working. you do his by jumping the car and while its running take of the neg cable off to the car if it dies then you know the alternater is not working properly,
if it stays running you know you have a electricalen short you half to trace down

Battery on a 2005 Mustang went dead. Had a Jump to get the car started. Drove & speedometer & odometer worked fine. However, I had Triple AAA install a new battery & now they don't work. ...


Did AAA clean the battery cable connections when they installed your battery? Did you check the fuse for the insrument panel?

It could be just bad timing or a coincidense but I am more likely to think things are connected. If your gauges worked after jump starting your car, but not after AAA changed the battery, something changed or was left disconnected.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger. Went out yesterday, car started fine. Got home and stooped at my mailbox, when I went to start the car it wouldn't start. I did notice the lights on the dash would go dim...


I'd start with a battery first. Sounds like the battery has 1 or more dead cells in it. the battery may have all the volts you could want but if it doesn't have the proper amperage it won't crank the motor. You can have the battery load tested for free at Auto Zone or Advance Auto. A simple down and dirty test would be to disconnect the Positive cable and jump the vehicle by connecting directly to that and a good ground on the block. The motor should turn over as long as the vehicle you use as a jump has the proper amperage in it's battery. If the vehicle starts then it is the battery, if it doesn't then you need to look at the starter and other components.

Car won't start it works when it is jumped but will not start once it is turned off? Is this likely the starter or alternator?


Hard to say without testing all possibilities. Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge anymore. Which could be a result of a faulty alternator. Have the voltage checked. When the alternator is faulty, it does not charge the battery as you drive, therefore you are running off the battery only and eventually the battery will fail. Therefore the car won't start on it's own. Hope this helps a little.

I have a 2008 Toyota Rav 4 with 27,000 miles on it. I went to start my car at the store and it wouldn't start. AAA jump-started it; I drove it for 30 minutes and parked it in the driveway, turned it off,...


You most likely have a bad battery since the car starts with a jump. As for the steering problem you have electronic power steering. Most newer cars have this nowadays. Battery problems can cause this problem also.
