A new battery from the store is sold with no charge in it. It will need charging before it is used.

If a jumpstart dosn't work, then there are high power fuses, called fusable links, that may be blown.

Along the positive lead, either at the battery connector, or sometimes at the alternator connector, there is a short wire about 6 inches, it will be the end of a longer red wire leading to the battery terminal or alternator.
It looks like a regular wire, but with a connector attached about six inches along. If this wire stretches and breaks, or has burn marks, or is simply a strip of carbon, then this is the problem, and needs to be replaced.

Otherwise there is often a fusebox relay box under the hood, (in addition to the interior fusebox). Check the fuses in there.

My vehicle is a 1992 Toyota Previa. I have absolutly no power, no lights ect. Dead. Battery has been replaced and alternator was replaced about a year ago.

Before you tear anything apart check your battery cables on both ends for looseness. Dirt or corrosion.will not let power through. I tried to boost my car and nothing would work. It was like the battery was dead so I got towed in. They put a battery tester on and the battery was fully charged so they replaced my battery cables and bingo everything was working again. One cable was not letting the power through it.

Will not turn over no sound

check battery cable connection clean and tighten, turn on head light or horn to check if battery has power. if battery is dead possible trouble would be 1. battery needs replacement (replace), 2. alternator not charging (replace), if battery has power starter motor is defective (check, fix, or replace).

04 Acura MDX, replaced car battery on 071012. Tested and powered up. Car not driven the following day, now no power. Vehicle powered up after jump start. No engine light warnings. Why no power after...

My guess is you have something in the car that is draining the battery.
A mechanic would disconnect the battery and look for something that is on when everything is turned off, or a short to ground.
Its also possible the battery is defective.

Battery runs down. replaced alternator, starter

Replace battery also then use a multimeter at the fuse box to check for power drains to find the loss of power. A tune up may be in order if it runs poorly.

Elictrical system flashes on/off, then dies.

when you were driving, after replacing the battery, if u felt the car loosing some horse power, until it dies, then YES its your alternator, it is not recharjing the battery with power, so the car keep on sucking the battery until it dies, try to check your alternator, or check your the plug "located on the alternator itself"
