Try jumpstarting from another car. You probably did not get the battery fully charged before you tried it. Also, check to see if the cables are connected tightly and if they are corroded, clean them before doing anything else. When you jump start, make sure the cables go on the correct terminals at both ends. Make the last connection to the ground on the bug (- wire)

you sound like your catylitic converter is trying to stop up. When this happens check and have someone race the engine and fill and see if you have a good flow of exhaust coming out of your tail pipe and see if it is real hot .A good way is if it happens at night look at yourn converter and see if its red from the converter to the engine thats a sure sign thats your converter is stopped up.If its not then if the light stays on go to an advance store or some other place and they wont charge you to check and tell you what the obd 2 code is and post that back and let me know what the code is .Hope This Helps
Unfortunately I am aware of no pictures or diagrams. There are two connections, a low pressure and a high pressure connection. The high pressure connection is found between the engine and the firewall. The low pressure connection is in front of the engine along the inside lip of the hood closure. As you open your hood, it's located just in front of your lefty knee. The connection is on an aluminum tubing, and mine has a black screw cap on it. Not sure if the cap varies in colors, or whether your may have been removed. The connecting hose from your freon refigerant H134a will ONLY fit onto the low pressure connection. The charge is just a bit more than 2 pounds of freon. In a 2001 you may need to add more than i can if the car has never been recharged, but start with one can and see how it goes. You may also want to add a freon with a sealant just in case you have a small leak. One can is approximately 13 ounces.
this is not true, a parasitic draw can be found with the battery in any state of charge, yhe purpose of this test is to find out out what is drawing current, meaning amperage from the battery and at what rate. take this to a certified mechanic, should be easy to find with the right tools.if you need more help get back to me. please rate my fix as i stive to be the best Thanks Ray
hi if its not been started for five years and it is trying to start but just won,t keep running get someone to tow you and jump start it because i suspect the compressions will be low due to a build up of damp carbon valves sticking all in all the seats on the head and valve will not be seating so if you persisist with the jump start it forces the valves onto the seats and will clear the debrie if it still won,t go check your compressions yates210456
After leaving the vehicle for X amount of time, you found it did not start ....because...............
A: potentially low electrolyte (fluid) in the battery which can cause various charging issues [including plate damage]. B: Did not drive long enough to charge the battery to a fundamental and useful state (low batteries take a longer time to charge). C: bad battery plate
While you are at it, make sure you have no corrosion on the battery terminals; this dampens the effort of charging.
Should you have a meter, you can check the following; battery voltage = 12VDC [car not running, ignition acc off] battery charge voltage = 14.8 VDC [usually 120% of battery value] AND car running. This determines that your alternator is supplying the proper V.
Easiest thing to do; charge it over night with an external charging system. Also, you can drive your vehicle to many auto part stores and they will come out and troubleshoot the battery/charging system via an analyzer. This will tell you if your battery is sufficient or needs to be replaced.
