Is it a clicking sound? If so, likely the battery is bad.

SOURCE: my 2005 xb won't start and when you put your foot on the brake it is tight and won't move

The tightness of the brake is normal. as the servo doesn't work until you run the engine. It could still be the battery as the radio only takes a small amount of power, whereas the rngine needs a lot more, get it checked by an electrician.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

New battery, I think the positive terminal is bad. Have looked for replacement on Autozone, but not sure what I am actually looking for. Please advise.


Take battery cable off and clean them with a wire brush then retighten them.Its sounds like they are just not tight enough.Also make sure to clean the posts on the battery too.If it still just clicks then check the battery voltage you should have at least 12 volts.If you don't you will to charge it and if it does'nt take a charge then replace it.

Won't start after sitting for a few days


Could be loosing fuel pressure thru the pressure regulator or the valve in the fuel pump. The pressure should hold for several days when the engine is off.
I would have the fuel pressure tested before and after you try to start the engine.

Verify if there is spark or not when cranking the engine over. If not, could be the pickup coil inside the distributor-this is what tells the control module what position the crankshaft is in, for delivering spark at the right time.

I had the car in storage for 35 days. Upon startup, battery was dead. I took the dead battery out(only 1 year old) and put in a good battery which started the car, while the car was running good I took out...


You recycle the old dead battery

Have no idea why you even put that back in

Common sense & your friend is correct

You don't disconnect anything on today's
vehicles, even with the key on

Put in a new battery,start the car, warm it up
& drive it for awhile & maybe you will get lucky
& it will complete some of the drive cycles & run some
monitors ,you know nothing about & it will be fine

If not, your mechanic friend should be about to stop
by with the bosses scan tool & help you out

Sounds like it could a bad coil.But if you wait until it does start take a spray bottle of water and while running spray the distributor cap and listen for it to start missing if does replace the distributor cap if it does'nt replace coil.
