Are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

WHAT SIZE BATTERY DOES THE CHEV CRUZ 2012 1.6 USE


Great question...The normal new car battery rating is 650 CCA (cold cranking amps) The new car battery usually has a prorated 5-6 year battery warranty. When replacing compare the CCA to the factory...It is always wise to upgrade to a higher rated CCA battery. Auto Zone Gold for the Cruz is a 800 CCA rated battery...Also Costco competes great in price:) All of these auto stores will have the correct battery group for your Cruz...A wise upgraded investment...The new batteries will be 6-7 year pro-rated, with some 100% 3 year replacement. Be sure to compare:)

1966 ford pickup 352 motor turns over but acts as if the battery is dieing has new starter battery, cylanoid and wires


Battery may not have enough cranking amps to turn it over. Those old fords need at least 800 cca and to be fully charged. Keep in mind that not all new starters (parts in general) are always good. Make sure nothing else is drawing a bunch of juice from the battery at the same time. Like an aftermarket stereo for instance.

I need to know what battery I need for a 2003 matrix xrs?


The correct battery size for your vehicle is the "35" case size. Try to get a battery that has at least 600 CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) with a three-year "free exchange" period. Your local auto supply stores should have this battery for about 90 bucks, give or take. Always match the original battery to the new one (note polarity position, for example). Some vehicles assembled in Canada are given optional batteries (usually slightly larger in size) for handling extreme cold conditions.

If possible, install a memory-saver before disconnecting the old battery to preserve radio presets (and anti-theft codes) as well as ECU data.

After installing the new battery, have the charging system checked to ensure that the alternator is charging properly.

I hope this helps.

Have a great day !!!

When the weather is very cold (below zero) the car will not even try to turn over it wil only click at the starter and ignition no turn battery is fine never does this any other time. only cold, but once...


It is normal for batteries to lose a good deal of their power due to cold temperatures. If you want better starting power, try using a battery charger/maintainer overnight. It should charge at no more than 2 amps. The slow trickle charging overnight will charge and warm up the battery and allow it to develop full power for a cold morning start.

No nothing about cars. whats the best battery to get for my 04 grand cherokee 4.0


The brand is of less importance than the battery specs

The battery should be the same group size,same physical size and same Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as came with the vehicle when new
You sometimes can increase the CCA, after new products come out.
I would sugest the largest CCA Battery, that is the correct Group Size
Around 750 or more CCA

What size battery for a 1999 Porsche 996?


Don't worry about the size ... the group, etc. Go to the auto parts store tell them what your car is and they will provide you with exactly the proper size with the proper posts in the right place.

Your will have to make the decision "Economy", "Standard" or "Premium". These different grade batteries will provide different CCA ratings with more CCA at the higher end. CCA = Cold Crank Amps. Buy as much battery as you an afford if you are keeping this vehicle.

What's ur battery?


Once upon a time there were three basic case sizes for batteries. Now I can't count them. People that sell batteries have a chart that will match the proper battery to your car.
Your choice should always be to get the battery that offers the highest possible cold cranking amps (cca) as that one will generally give you the best overall service. While just about any battery will start your car under average conditions, extreme cold and heat are where all those extra amps help a whole lot.
By experience I have found that batteries made by Interstate seem to hold up the best of all the brands I've dealt with. Sears Die hards are very close behind in that regard. Not to say that others don't work.
You will find that the more cca's a battery has the more $ it costs.
That is where you need to decide on how long you are keeping the car and how much you want or can spend on it. (though I'd likely buy a good used interstate from a scrapyard than to buy a cheap,
low cca battery from someplace like WalMart.)
After you have your battery installed, it is up to you to maintain it. Believe it or not an alternator is not designed to re-charge a battery.
It is designed to maintain the state of charge only. Therefore every time you sit in a parking lot listening to the radio, you are removing some of the capacity of the battery and shortening it's useful life. To combat this, every month or two you should put a 2-10 amp automatic charger on there and restore the deep charge, check the terminals for good connection and if it has removable caps, check the acid level inside. (if you accidentally leave the lights on or something like that so you need a jump, do that right away)
I routinely get around seven years of service from a five year battery by simply doing that. (it also takes some of the load off the alternator and helps extend it's life as well)
OK, you asked an easy question and now you are a battery expert!
(not really, but you now know more than a lot of people)
Good Luck!!

Hi i need to find battery size for car 2001 330ci .


Somewhere on the top of your current battery you should be able to find a number followed by CCA. This is your battery rating, CCA stands for cold cranking amps and this is one area where bigger is better. If you are looking at replacing the battery then this number should be at least 500CCA or better, keeping in mind that it will have to fit in the battery box. Measure the width, length and height of the current battery and take these measurements with you as well as the current CCA when you go to buy a new battery. If your car has a lot of electrically powered options you should be looking for 750+ CCA. If, for some reason, you can't locate this number, then the auto parts store should be able to find it in their reference books. Hope this helps.

Battery dies after doors are left open


Hello, you are wantng to know if you have the right size battery for your vehicle. It sounds as if your battery may not have enough cold crank amps in it to support your vehicle, or either the battery you have has a bad cell. Your local auto supply store should be able to help determine if the battery is bad. It may also have just a surface charge and need to be charged on a trickle charger overnight or either there may be a parasitic draw on your battery beside the lights, but before going through a bunch of different test check your battery condition, then manufacturer specs, then battery cranking amps to manufacturer specs. I would say about a 800 cca battery at least.
