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.

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 would want to know if you have at least 12 volts at the battery posts, and also at the starter. You need to know if the cables are causing the problem, or something else.
Once the engine starts, it should be running off the alternator, but it still needs the battery in the circuit.

Climate control not working on 2001 volvo


I was having the same problem with a dead climate control module after disconnecting the battery on my 2002 v70. i tried (one method that sometimes works for people) disconnecting the battery again, shorting the leads for 10 seconds, and reconnecting with the key at position 2, to no avail. I managed to get my climate control back again when I jump started the car after the battery conveniently crapped out. then i got a new battery and when i installed it the ccm died. i jumped it again, with the new battery still hooked up, and the ccm came back. it's something try.

Did anybody bother to actually TEST the charging and starting system or are we just replacing parts? This whole thing COULD be caused by something as simple as a bad battery cable connection.
