Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
When I try to start my car the odometer reads "done". The battery still works and I tried jumping it. It has a lot of miles, 226,000 on an estimate.

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

there is a 20 amp fuse under the hood that blew on my 96 stratus that caused the same problem. check that out, maybe the same thing. good luck.

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
