Let's split this problem into two components. You likely have a power drain from a bad part, because replacing a defective battery will restore most cars to a running condition. You need to find the bad part which will restore the car to a running condition.

You will not get help from the past records locked in the onboard computer because depowering the system erased the memory. So you can hook up a scanner and try to detect new faults or do it the old fashion way.

You need to see whether you have fuel or spark. You did not indicate what vehicle you are driving, Ford-made products have an Inertia safety switch which could cut off the fuel pump but will not short out the system. If you cranked the car until the battery died, then this is a possible source for why the car would not start. Its a simple fix, no parts needed, just using a reset button to restore fuel flow.

If you have fuel and no spark, you need to see where you are dropping the power. If you register on the Autozone.com site and go to the HELP sections at the bottom of the page; there are free wiring and fusebox diagrams.

A stuck Relay can cause some of your problems in both fuel and spark systems. A loose connection on a ground wire for some of your major systems can also prevent starting.

If you are driving a Diesel powered vehicle, some of the answers I have provided will not apply.

Please rate my info.

SOURCE: BATTERY WENT DEAD, CLICKING WHEN

battery went dead because the rear windshield wiper didn't go off during the night, as soon as you put a new battery, the wiper start to working and won't stop. probably the switch out of order, A/C doesn't work, check the fuse.

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

If the antitheft system is armed and isn't recognizing the key for starting, the dealer should be the next place it should be towed for reprogramming the key to the computer.

My nissan interstar van wont start like battery dead and its charged fully


Battery with a dead cell can still show 12.5-13.8 volts but when any draw is put on it will drop voltage like a rock such as cutting on the headlights. They may look ok to begin with but will dim very quickly. I would start here by having the battery load tested.

Almera wont start


Even a relativly new battery can develope a bad or dead cell. Does the engine spin over when ignition is attempted? Easiest way to check this is to load test the battery. Any major auto parts dealer( Advance, Autozone, NAPA, Oriellys,etc.) can test this at no charge. Also use a voltmeter to test the alternator output. Most alternators put out between 13.5-13.8 volts at the battery. A faulty alternator can cause the engines electrical system to pull voltage from the battery until it (Battery)gets down to around 10 volts at which time the voltage is to low to support the needs of the system and the vehicle simply cuts off and will not restart as described in the first part of your post. Hope this helps.

The engine fault could be from low voltage supply. If the battery you put in has a couple of dead cells, you wont get the engine started. even jumping it wont help. try a new battery or at least a battery that you know is good.
