I can't quite follow your post, but it sounds like you set off the car alarm. Lock and unlock your doors with the key Fob to reset it.

I've replaced the battery several times in my 328 without such a problem.

The key turn but the car dont start, but when i kick start it it start and i wont have a problem the hole day starting only in the morning


The battery needs to be replaced. After the first start in the morning the battery gets charged and the engine is also "hot" making it easier for the starter motor to turn it over. Therefor less current is drawn from the battery and you get a start every time. In the morning the engine is cold making it difficult to turn. The battery rested the night loosing some charge and is also cold which affects the current it can deliver at that stage. With the cold engine it is not able to turn it fast enough to get it started. A new battery will solve your problem.

I hit a pot hole and my battery died the next morning. I got it tested and it was bad. I bent both right side wheels after hitting a pot hole. My car won't stay charged. Active steering is off too.


I would check all earth wire on your car , as it sounds if there is a bad earth wire or a broken one ., this would explain your battery going flat and the flat battery would probably cause your problem with the steering as it will probably be an electric steering pump

1996 Plymouth breeze .put in used battery ran well .next day dead. Charged up . Ran again check engine light stays on door light stays on fuel gauge moves to different positions Help. Thanx left ove


I fail to see how you do not believe you have a
failed battery,the used one

Buy a new battery with the correct Group Size for the
car & at least 700 CCA rating

Napa top of the line with NO Caps on top, would be a
good choice

Look on napa web site.they are made by Penn Battery

The car that broke down is a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee and what happened last night is that we were on our way across the state to my other aunts house for the night and then to my grandpa's in the morning...


I didn't learn a whole lot from your narration but it seems that there is a high probability that something has gone wrong with the charging system. Unless you have a good battery charger and can charge the battery and see if it starts (if it does, it's not fixed but likely you can get it to a good local shop for diagnosis) You cannot charge a battery by jumping it with another vehicle. It won't work and can damage the other vehicle. There is nothing you can do there without the proper meters etc.
Otherwise, your best bet is to have it towed to whoever generally works on it and have them take a look at it for you.
Good luck!!!

Sumthing keeps bringing my battery down.the altinator is good but my brand new battery is dead now.whats wrong


Most likely the diode from the alternator is leaks draining the battery2_bing.gif. If you believe your battery is good then recharge it to full level then do the followings: 1- Disconnect negative cable from the battery over night to see how weak it is in the next morning. If it is bad then it is the battery no other thing. 2- If it is good, take off wires from the alternator for a night, next day battery is still good then there is a problem with the alternator diode. Hope this can help.

Headlamps on when cars off and kills the battery


Likely either the delay module or the relay has gone bad and is sticking on. Till you find it and get it replaced you can pull the headlight fuse (in underhood fuse box) to prevent the battery form going dead.

Battery dying every 3 days


I have two comments to make about the drained battery that we found out...

1. The On-Star system stayed on when its suppose to shut-off once you shut off the engine and open the door. The green lite on on the unit is really hard to see during the day, but easly at night. I let the car sit over night and the next morning the unit was still active... hence draining the battery. The On-Star is using the same fuse as the dome lights. So to reset... with the door open pull the fuse, close the door insert the fuse, you should here a relay switch click. Open the door a wait for the dome lights to come on... the On-Star unti will not and should not unitl the car is started. You may need periodically keep on eye on this.

2. The other related problem is the radio fuse which is also identified as a battery guard. Not sure what that means or does yet... but the radio on-off situation seems to have started when I didn't replace the battery cover, so I'm wondering if the negative terminal is shorting out on the car. I'm getting a new cover to see if this corrects the problem... I know its sounds strange but why is there a battery cover to begin with.

Ya still battling it . we flushed the tranny and it was fine for awhile but its just as bad if not worse. Volkswagon dealer gave me a huge run around and no answers. I thought i was getting stroked at $3500 for a new tranny but sounds like they realy want to nail you with $4500. No the catalytic replacement didnt fix the problem just a way to get more money out of me.
I didnt let the dealer replace the tranny and we drove it . it drives fine once its warmed up but first thing in the morning it slips. and it seems to be getting worse. I swung by a local shop not a dealer and he told me they have sensors . and may be a simple fix. but if not ya have to replace the tranny for its a sealed unit and they just cant be worked on. I regret buying it. let me know if ya find a solution. my e mail is fesup@q.com
