Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of possibilities you may want to check/consider:

  • weak/defective battery (most likely);
  • loose/corroded battery terminals, electrical connectors (just a possibility);
  • faulty charging system (least likely).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I would replace the starter and /or battery. Both can be checked at a parts store. Sounds like you may have a short in the starter, draining the battery.

My 1996 mercedez e320 only starts when I JumpStart


Connect a voltmeter across the battery terminals. While engine off, if the voltage is below 12V it means your battery is either dead or discharged. Once you've jump-started your car, check the battery voltage again. If it's still low (like below 13.5V) it may mean you have a problem with your alternator.
Let me know the voltages and we'll think what to do next.

2003 vectra 3.2 litre v6 not starting thought battery was flat as not driven for some time jump started it and drove fine.next day same thing had to jump start only drove for 5 min or so then the day after...


you need to check the alternator charge rate as this is the sort of problems associated with a low charge rate , unfourtunately you will need the engine running to do this so get a voltmeter ready for when you jump start the engine and read across battery terminals if reads below 13 volts the alternator needs replacing ,check that the drive belt is tensioned correctly as this would make alternator give low charge,also will need the OBD codes reading after all this going on , the engine doesnt need to be running for this just ignition on ,will give codes for sensor/switch which might be out because of the starting/running problems

Car Battery


Alternator is bad. It is not charging the battery as you drive.
