Ran car on friday now wont even turn over its dead


Hot weather often causes weak batteries to die. Try a jump start and go to AutoZone for a battery and charger test.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

Battery died now wont start


the security system need to be reset, plug your charger back on the battery then turn the ignition switch on and leave it on untill the security warning light turns off (about 10 to 20 Min) then turn the key to off wait 5sec then turn the car on it should be good to go, this solves this kind of problem 9 out of 10. good luck

My battery died so I had it charged, when I put it back in the lights kept going up and down and I still couldn't start it???


Hi Sean, Could you explain what you mean by the lights going up and down? Do you mean that they brighten and dim, and if so is it during the attempted start up, Keep in mind that the greatest drain of power from the battery is during the starter operation, therefore all lights and as many other circuits should be off during that time. If the lights are left on and the battery is weak or the battery connections need cleaning, a power dip is not unusual. Charge the battery, clean the terminals and make sure the battery towers and terminals are clean, or use another good battery and try again. Regards John

REPLACED STARTER THEN RECHARGED BATTERY CAR STARTED FINE THEN DROVE FINE THEN GAGES ON DASH STARTED GOING CRAZY ALONG WITH RADIO THEN CAR ACTING LIKE IT WANTS TO DIE NOW WONT START


sounds like your battery is dying,, have it LOAD tested,, it could show 12 volts, but the amperage isn't up to par,, even with one bad cell the battery will drain , also,, once you know its fully charged, start the vehicle,, use a meter at the battery posts to check the voltage,, you should get a reading of 13.5-14.5 volts, if not your alternator isn't doing its job, make sure all battery connections are clean and tight.

When driving the radio died then the car died wouldnt start again wont even turn over


It sounds like your alternator went bad. The alternator is responsible for keeping your battery charged and at full power. If it goes bad, your battery eventually drains and things start to shut down.
Get your alternator and battery tested, I'm sure you'll find the alternator has died.

Buy a new battery. You have damaged a cell in your existing battery.

Battery died


what i would do would be to try and jump the car by popping the hood and connecting the jumper cables to the jumping post under the hood. there is a positive , and what you need to do is just ground the negative to something metal(not engine block). this is located close to the front left corner. email me if you dont understand. i will try to explain better.

Engine keeps dying after I turn it on.


I had the same problem when I did battery maintenance on my 1988 Montero Sport. The problem was explained to me, that the car's electronic pollution control computer data was erased when the battery is disconnected or the battery totally discharges. The car's computer uses this data to regulate idle speed and other engine factors. The solution given to me was to recheck the battery connections (make sure they are clean, and tighten down), start the vehicle, and just let it sit and idle for about 15 - 20 minutes (without racing the engine or driving the vehicle). This will rebuild and repopulate the car's computer engine data it needs to make adjustments. Hope this helps.
Mark.
