Just to be sure. Check to make sure all connection on the battery are good. You should read 12.9V or somewhere around there. I would start by checking the clip on the left side of the battery where you have all your positive wires. And make sure that connection is good. Sometimes it gets weather and you no longer have a good enough connection for bigger power users like the starter to work. However the lights and radio still may work. If you still have a problem, check the starter. It may be bad. If the car is on and when you go to start it and all you hear is a clicking noise, then its the starter. Good Luck!

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.

OLder cars YEs you can jump it without a battery.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

because aaa can jump start it and you can't sounds like maybe the battery cables are curroided (dirty)
in-between the battery post and the clamps, clean the battery terminals and charge your battery as a loose conection can run down even a new battery

Camaro wont turn over


First, clean your battery cables with a wire brush so you know you have a good connection from your battery. If that doesn't do it, it's most likely your starter or selenoid.
