Well to start with the car would start if hooked up to another for jumpstarting.....This is what you should do....First before hooking up cables turn on your headlights ,,probably they didnt turn on cause of dead battery...turn them off and hook up cables ,prior to trying to start, turn on lights again if still no lights which is what i predict means faulty connection either with cables or corroded or loose terminals attatched at battery...clean and tighten as necesary and repeat procedure....Good Luck

Won't start, no inside lights, no engine turnover, no electrical power

get somebody to give you a jump start with booster cables, did you leave a light on? Has the weather been very cold where you are, cold can kill a weak battery.
Check that the alternator cable is intact before attempting to start. Sounds like a dead battery, should not cost much if that is all the problem is

Good Luck

My 1997 CRV will not start after driving it home last night.

Depending on what part of the world you are in, it could be the battery, or a bad connection. Very cold weather can kill a battery, and it can also cause a bad connection to get worse. The starter pulls a large amount of current, and even more so in cold weather.
If nothing comes on when you open the door or turn the key, I would start checking the battery and major connections.

Can't Shift To Neutral with a Dead Battery

I am not sure about the Impala but the SAAB (also made by GM) has a small slot near the shifter where you can insert your key or screw driver (something flat) to release it from park when the car cannot be powered up.

Turn the key and it will not start

cold weather kills batteries this time of year...heres why..most batteries are a chemical factory..the acid and water separate as the battery discharges..also the chemical process is lessened when the air temps go below freezing by around 50% or more depending on the age of the extreme cold areas, external heat sources are required to keep engines warm enough to alaska for example,the batteries are taken out entirely and put inside to keep warm..sometimes a fire pit is used to warm the engine from below (red hot coals no flame)..also in very cold weather, the engine oil will get very some cases the oil will actually glue the engine semi solid..locking it up..if its a cheaper oil that whathappens..I like 20 miles north of st louis in illinois and when it gets below 30 degrees outside i place a under cabinet 350 watt heater(used for keeping food warm to serve) upside down under my engine overnite..this keeps the block warm and the oil thinned out..and works very well for car will start whe no one elses will in my neighborhood..hope tyhis helps you..

Hi, my 95 honda accord lsi 2.0 doesnt start, couple days ago it hardly started in cold weather, and today it just didnt started at all. Could it be a gas filter, or maybe candles, or gus pump ??..what...

Have you tried checking the battery? Try to give it a jump with another car. Cold weather kills car batteries FAST. Does the car crank over at all? Or does it just make a clicking sound without actually turning the motor? If jumping it gets it started, replace the battery and you shouldn't have any problems. Batteries typically last between 2-5 years depending on their use, if you have a lot of sick car audio and electronics pulling juice, it will cause a "deep cycle" which car batteries were not designed for and that will kill them quick too. If replacing the battery works for a while, but then it dies soon thereafter, you might need to start looking for possible short circuits or current draws. Hope this helps!

Here is the timeline as to what happened to my '95 mustang gt. Maybe then someone can help by understanding the sequence of events. The battery was weak due to me leaving the lights on. I jumped it, and it...

Even though you had the battery checked it may be bad or have a weak cell in it. It can be charged and then keep a surface charge on for a little bit and then die. To check a battery out you need to use a good carbon pile tester and not just one of the old fashioned load testers. I guarantee you that it is most likely the battery. Especially if the battery is 4 plus years old or more. Cold weather just kills batteries as does hot weather. Good luck.

Battery drained dead in ocld weather

Could be both batteries went bad.
1) I would take battery back to where you bought it and have them test.
2) Check, or have someone check, that battery power is not being used when the key is off and the car is not being used in any way. There will be a slight trickle of power use, but nothing that would wear the battery down in less than 3-4 weeks.

Car not starting

First off, now, check the large fuses in the box on the fender. That is hopefully why nothing works now. If not, you may have REALLY messed something up. That is what they are for though, and should have caught the zap. If you get everything back where you can turn the motor over, and it still will not start, try to reset the security lock down. Put the key in the door and lock/unlock 5 times. It should start then.
