I have a 2000 kia sportage wont start unless jumped off. Runs until you kill then wont start without a jump replaced battery and alternator i turn lights on a loud buzz under steering wheel


Check your new battery if it is charged up, sounds like something is draining your battery, or your alternator is not charging properly, check your charging system

1997 gmc sierra. interior light left on, battery dead, jump started,ran for 15 min. tried to restart after shutting off only thing that happened was drivers lock locks and 3 guages, oil , gas, and pressure...


You probably didn't run it long enough to charge up the battery. Put a voltmeter on it and see if it needs charging, or get it charged up, or get another jump and run it for a half hour and then see if battery is charged up enough to start the engine.

If the security light is on or flashing, you may need to reset the security system.

Jump start


I would say you never checked to see if the battery is any good

I most likely is dead or below 12.6 volts & you never jump a dead
battery,you try charging it

Jumping is not charging a battery,you need to own a battery charger

If the battery keeps draining or won't hold a charge you need
a new one,then if the problem exists you have someone do a
Parasitic Current Test to find out which circuit is staying on

I was letting the engine run to charge battery after a a jump start when smoke and steam were pouring out. also noticed water puddle under car


You have overheated the engine, check the engine cooling fan operation there is a problem I suspect.

Hi my car wont start,after i get a jump it will run that hold day then the next morning nothing will come on no lights anything


your charging system is working okay or you would have to have it jumped more than once a day.you have a bad battery that needs replacing as running it during the day the charging system keeps the battery charged up enough to work.you could have a drain on the battery from something in the car that is not shutting down that you will have to have checked out.or sitting over night the battery runs down to the point that it needs to be jumped started if its an old battery(over5-6years).

2006 G6 GT sedan, was parked a while and battery died. Replaced the battery and started engine no problem, ran for a half an hour. Next morning tried to start but wouldn't even turn over. Plenty of power...


YOU NEED AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN TO LOCATE THE BATTERY DRAIN & OR BAD CONNECTION . THE TRUNK LIGHT MAY BE STAYING ON WHEN THE TRUNK IS SHUT, ALSO THE ALTERNATOR CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY, WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, BUT IF A DIODE IS BAD IT CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHEN THE ENGINE IS OFF

Battery light on, takes forever to start then dies once started


if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping
