You can jump it with a running car, then take it to somewhere like Autozone which will check the charging system and battery to see if there is a problem. Also sometimes you need to remove the battery cables and clean both them and the battery terminals.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside


change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

2006 taurus wont start in the cold


How old is your battery? If it is the original 2006 battery now is the time to replace it. A battery needs to be replaced after about 4 winters. Cold weather reduces the battery capacity and makes it harder to start. If you wait the car may not start at all.

2001 ford 250 s/dv-10turns over fine. wont start sometimes.when it starts it runs fine.seems like cold weather makes it worse.if it starts it wont die.started about a month ago and getting worse.


Make sure the battery doesn't have a dead cell or is over two years old first. Then depending on usage I would definately think about getting a new starter. I would suspect your battery first, due to the cold weather corrolation.

Get a new battery - I did and it works OK.

Check the Belt Tension. If it is even just a little loose it could cause this Problem.
