Sounds like your starter may be shorted out. That is A LOT of juice flowing when a jump occurs, so most any engine will at least turn over. Load test the starter. Load test the alternator. Perhaps one of those is the culprit.
Let us know what you find.

SOURCE: jaguar s/type wont start had flat battery now replaced x.reg 2000

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

Battery keeps draining overnite. Once it is jump started, it is fine. Could it be the electrical system?


It absolutely is......... But what part? check all that you can, does anything light up when the jumper cables are hooked up? lights? glove box light? dome light? sun visor mirror lights? The alternator can short out and drain the battery. Disconnect it (the large cable) and put a test light in line, it should NOT light up. If you cant find anything obvious, a shop may have to check for a battery draw.

Do you have a security system in this car? This is a likely fault for this to happen. Do you get spark to your cylinders and fuel in your fuel rail?

2004 Dodge Neon Fuse problem?


Sounds like corroded battery terminals/cables. The battery should have held a charge after jump starting. When a car won't even jump start, it's a sign of a dead battery or corrosion on the posts or cables. Throroughly clean the posts and cables and try to jump start again. The error code should clear itself since the battery would be disconnected. If you are not able to jump start the car, post back and we'll diagnose further. My guess is cleaning the posts and cables will get you running again. Best of luck!

Electric problem on 2002 Jeep cherokee 6


I had a similar problem, Mine turned out to be a weak cell in the battery. Here is what I did to find it. First, check what postion is the dome light switch in when this problem happens?

Disconect the negitive battery terminal. connect a volt, ohm, amp, meter in series between the negative battery terminal, and the disconected negative battery cable. How much voltage is showing on the meter? open the door does the voltage go up, or does it drop off?
Close the door wait 30, 40 second voltage should start to decrease back down to 0. This is normal the dome light uses a module to control the dome light delay.
If the voltage does not drop down to zero with the door closed after a min. or 2, select the amp setting in your meter, read the amperage draw. This is what drains the battery, the higher the amperage reading the quicker the battery will drain.
With the meter still hooked up remove one fuse at a time, when the amperage drops off you have found the defective circuit.

Wont start


I had a similar problem with my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It turned out that the battery posts and cables were corroded. I cleaned them up and it solved the problem immediately. Something to check on before you spend the money on a new battery anyway!
