Question about 2008 Chevrolet Equinox
Tried to start the car, and nothing happened. After trying to get numerous jumps because we figured the battery was dead and still nothing. Went to Walmart and purchased a new battery and installed it and the truck started right up. But now the stabilitrak, parking brake, and abs lights are all on. We unhooked the negative cable to the battery and waited 10 minutes and then hooked it back up and all the lights are still on. Please help because I can not afford to take the truck to the dealership again.

SOURCE: Stored my 1989 corvette for the winter. Just tried to start it, and the battery is dead. I jump started the car and it ran for about 7-8 minutes and then shut off. Had to re-jump and again, car won't
At first blush, sounds like corrosion on the battery cables either at the battery or at the other end at the alternator or starter. There are several sprays at the auto parts store that will clear the corrosion but the best way is to remove the cables and clean both the cable ends and the posts. Once you're able to rule out the cables/connections having the charging system checked would be next point of order but its more likely to be the cables. A car that won't run on it's own isn't getting enough power from the alternator so I'd check the negative cable first.

have your alternator checked,sometimes there are alternator fuses at the battery terminals,check if any are present (WHEN THOSE FUSES ARE BLOWN,YOU WILL NOT HAVE A CHARGE GOING TO THE BATTERY)

check your alternator to make sure it is putting sufficient charge to charge the battery. he proper thest would be to take it to a parts store and have them tell you the voltage. a get by test would be to start the carnd disconnect the battery and see how long the car runs. IF it dies then your alternator is bad.
