I put a new battery in mine and was told to put in the new battery and then get in the car with door shut and turn key to on position for about 90 seconds, this worked for me, mabey it will work for you, if your battery is still hooked up you should first unhook it for a couple minutes then reconnect the battery and follow procedure. hope this helps

Why might my car not start?

Think the battery is dead. It is possible that the accident caused some damage to the wiring so that when you shut it down, the battery is being discharged.
Get battery charged and car running. then with car totally off hook up ammeter to battery and look for current draw. Then start removing fuses till you come across the circuit responsible for the draw and further troubleshoot that circuit for the offender. Till you find it leave fuse out so you can start car a few days later.

Car has ben seating 4 6 months put new battery in no power in dash.

Humm ? Sat for six months? Check to see If your new battery Is charged . If It's charged check your main fuse change that
If still no power?
Check your battery cable contacts at the battery and clean them and where they are connected to the starter and the ground to the engine and body.... Still No power? Check for chip monk wire damage they love to nest in the wires

New battery but still acts dead - Does computer need to be reset?

do not suspect computer.
1 the new battery may not have been charged from the store so would need to be charged before use, charge new battery on a charging set and see if this resoves the problem. *or use slave leads and start from a second vehicle)
2 your alternator may not be charging the battery so after a while it will just die. use a volt meter and check that volage is increaseing to your battery when the engine is running.
if not suspect alterantor defective and may need replacement.

2003 Honda Accord. Dies when I try to put it in drive

you are having a problem with your alternator. the battery has a main purpose to start the vehicle, keep computer memory, and give power to electrical components when the key is in the on position. the alternator charges the battery and gives power to electrical components when the vehicle is running. now when you hit the brakes there was an extra load added to the alternator and if the car died then the alternator is running very weak and needs to be relace.
