Sounds like your alternator went out or not making good connection at the battery terminals, preventing the battery from being charged. If the battery does not charge, you will use up the battery energy to maintain the vehicle running UNTIL you deplete the battery. the more accesories you have on, the faster it discharges till the point of killing your ignition on your engine. You definitely have a charging issue, more than likely, your alternator went out.
Key fell out of the ignition. to fix put key back in and start!!! We need more info to solve the issue. Is the battery dead too? lights work? Check engine light on before it died? just a few for starters.
your alternator may be the problem here. When the AC is on, the motor has to work harder, and the fans need eletricity to spin (unless they are powered by a belt, unsure). If the alternator can't keep up the battery will die.
HELLO, WISH I HAD U AROUND WHEN MINE WONT START,L.O.L U KNOW JUST BECAUSE THE BATTERY IS FULLY DOEST MEAN IT HAS ENOUGH CURRENT TO START YOUR CAR MULTIPLE TIMES! U SEE 12 VOLTS AND CRANKING POWER ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS! SEE YOUR ALTERNATOR IS USED TO KEPT THE BATTERY CHARGED SO IT CAN START YOUR CAR AFTER THE CAR STARTS THE ENTIRE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS POWERED BY THE ALTERNATOR NOT THE BATTERY,THE ONLY TIMES THE BATTERY IS USED IS TO START THE CAR AND SUPPLY POWER TO THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IF THE ENGINE SHUTS OFF! HAVE A LOAD TEST DONE ON YOUR BATTERY TO MAKE SURE ITS OK AND AT THE SAME TIME HAVE THEM DO A ALTERNATOR TEST AND MAKE SURE ITS OK, THEIR ARE A COUPLE OF NATIONAL AUTO SUPPLY STORES THAT WILL DO THIS TEST FREE AND WILL INSTALL A BATTERY IF FOUND BAD, AN ALTERNATOR COULD BE VERY MUCH DIFFERENT!(HOPE ITS NOT THAT) ONE THING U COULD DO YOUR SELF IS REMOVE BOTH BATTERY CABLES AND CLEAN THEM WITH A WIRE BRUSH,THE POST AND THE CABLES AND RE INSTALL GOOD AND TIGHT SO THEY CANT BE TURNED BY HAND. SO I HOPE THIS HELPS, BATTERY'S SHOULD BE THROUGHEN OUT EVER THREE YEARS,GOOD LUCK TO U.
You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die? Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?
Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?
