If headlight do not come on, leave them on and start check ground and power.
If headlights do come on then locate the starter and fine something to tape on it, not too hard,
but before u can do this have someone set inside the car with the key turn in the start position...

1997 contour new battery won't start


Have your alternator checked. If one (or more) of the diodes in the alternator is shorted, you can get similar symptoms, and it won't charge the battery either.

Check the alternator is not faulty.
The battery terminal voltage when engine is running should be approx 14.5V with headlights or venilation blower motor running.
The battery light indicator 'on' usually means the alternator is not charging.

Jumper cables have two colored cables. The red one goes from your vehicle positive battery terminal (+) to the other cars positive terminal (+)

The black goes from your negative terminal(-) to the other cars negative terminal (-)
Your car should start within 5 to 10 minutes if you have good connections.
Get your charging system checked to see if your battery is bad, or your car charging system is not working.

Check alternator/drive belt, & Have battery & charging system (alternator ) checked. Make sure connections at battery are clean & tight too. If you have a multimeter, check voltage before you start & after & see what it reads & let us know.
