    hi there. battery charger says the battery is good. gave the battery a full charge. the dash gauge says it is running at 14 the needle in the middle lol.. we have a thingy that connects to the battery and u start the car and it does an alternator check and says thats good too.. like i said all the lights work etc.. so i was just under the assumption that if the battery was bad then the radio and lights wouldnt work. the battery i dont think is that old..

    Hi imma girlie, u say the battery charger says the battery is good, do u mean the dash gauge? How about the alternator 'machinery thingy' is that the gauge on the dash? I'm asking this, cause this sounds like a bad battery (or one that's not being charged properly). How old is the battery? Lots of questions!!! be kind and answer, I'll help u out.

Hmmmm, from what u say, sounds like everything is ok, but,Bad battery can run lights, radio, but trying to start, will make clicking noise. U jumped it to start, and it did, another sign of bad battery. How are the connections at battery? Tight and clean? No corrosion? Check wire to starter also to make sure it's ok. If all connections are clean and tight, I would recommend removing the battery, take to parts store for free check to see condition of battery (low charge, or if it's shot). If u jump start it, u can also have them check the alternator too (free). U indicate dash gauge @ 14, that should be good. Battery usually has a date 'thingy' on it that u peel off #'s to indicate when battery was purchased, does yours have the 'thingy?'

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

loose battery connection, or you left your lights or something else on then you got your jump. on the drive home the battery had a chance to charge enough to start up 10 hours later.
