SOURCE: 2005 v6 dodge magnum wont start.

Your battery is probably ready to be replaced. It needs a long slow charge or when you try to jump start with another car, you need to leave the jumper cables on for 20 or 30 mins at least. This will bring up the level of your battery and perhaps it will start.

For future reference the only true measure of a battery;s condition is by measuring the state of the electrolyte in the battery. To do this you need 2 things. Onew is a small charger. Not a bad thing to have with winter coming on. You can get one for under $30. The second thing is a hydrometer. This is a meter that tells you the specific gravity of a batteries electrolyte> you can get on for under $5. To use this device you take the covers off the top on the battery, put the rubber tube into the battery and draw up some liquid.. A reading in the green is good condition. One has to check all 6 cells, because what typically happens is 4 od 5 cells will check good and the others will not. TIME to replace the battery.BTW, these measurements should always be made after the battery has been charged.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating Thanksl

Since the battery light was 'on', it seems the vehicle's charging system has failed.
Get the charging rate, and probabley the alternator will need overhauling.

Hi Carmelogo, It would sure help to know more about your problem. First question is what car is it? Secondly when you say it makes electrical sound, what do you mean? Is the starter motor turning, and if so, is it tuning too slowly or just clicking? If it's any of the those I would suggest cleaning the battery terminals, especially if it fails when jumped. If the terminals are oxidized they will need to be removed from the battery and cleaned or maybe even replaced. If the vehicle then starts with a jump and later fails after taking it for a run replace the battery

Odometer jumping

Ho, that doesn't bode well for your tank monitoring. It was a fluke, but may keep doing it, if the odometer is a mechanical meter with numbers turning from the speedometer cable by plastic gearing that wears. Watch for it to jump at the next 100 mile turn over.
I understand your reluctance to change out the fuel level sender in the tank if that is why the gauge doesn't work. It is a lot of work. But have you checked to see if it's the dash gauge or the sender unit? A couple of electrical tests could determine that. If it is the dash gauge, that is comparatively easy to replace, and you could buy a used one-they seldom go bad. Otherwise, keep tracking your miles.

Ok.. I just purchased a 06 Dodge Magnum SXT from my brother w/ only 87,000 miles on it. But the problem is that the car barely turns over, and when it does it only runs for a few seconds and then stalls....

Start with a good battery. Then try starting it and let it run for a few minutes if it will. Then retrieve the error codes by first, shutting off all accesories, then turn the key to "on"- without starting it. then "off" then :"on": then "off" and then back to "on" and leave it so the OBD can read out the error codes in the odometer location. You should see 3 or 4 codes. Write them down and address them in that order. Sometimes repairing one item will correct multiple codes. Doing the key thing should take less than 5 seconds before it starts to display the codes. It will read "Done" when it reaches the end.

there is a book publish by the govnt or minister of transport on the exact milage as well if you know how many liters or gallons go in your tank like 80 liters and the gas is 1.00 a liter it cost $80 for 80 liters on a full tank you do 500 km but make sure proper conditions of 100km a hour tires all proper equal pressure the wind is also a facture there is a lot involved to calculate your gas proformance as well if you had a oil change done latly you can find out on a govt site for gas consuption or consumers report

Replaced battery on 98 Porsche Boxster and now odometer is wrong

I had the same problem and was about to take the car to the dealership tomorrow, but I decided to try disconnecting the battery and see if it would reset itself. When I reconnected the battery the odometer mileage went back to where it was before I changed the battery. It worked!

Maybe it will work for you. Good luck!

The odometer reading disappeared on my '98 Volvo S70.

Have you found anything out. I brought my volvo in to have the battery replaced and when I picked it up I noticed the odometer was blank (no -----) just blank. I was told it was not related and probably just a bulb. Not a bulb I have no idea. I don't want to replace the cluster unless I'm sure what have you found out. (all my other gauges are fine speed, tach, trip fine)
