Tried jump starting my car and both times it died again after about 30 seconds - could it just be the battery or something else? If something else - what could it be?

I believe your alternator is not charging so with your battery weak it keeps draining it .the car should run after jumping if alternator is good.

Was running car with heater on car got hot heater went off seconds later car died engine was hot now won't start weak turn over.


Remove the serpentine belt. Put a socket on the crank bolt. It should be fairly easy to turn. If not, crank bearings are shot. If so, try to start the car. If it starts, first look at the A/C compressor. Then the other pulleys and parts. One has locked up.

I suggest you pull the battery and have it checked. Most chain auto parts stores will do this for free. It can take a while if your battery is dead. Another way is to swap batteries with another car. After you get your car started disconnect the positve ( red) battery cable. If the engine dies your Alterator is bad. If you have a bad Alterator it could have ruined your Battery too. If the engine continues to run it is probably a bad battery.
