96 camaro has problem starting, it is fine when I jump start it and lights AC radio and everything work. I took my old battery toautozone they said it was bad so I bou a new one. I still have the same problems and the voltage readings are actually lower. Is this likely something like an alternater starter or bad cables

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!

After having had to jump start the battery, the camera and radio don't work. How do you reset it or check to see if something got disconnected when jumped.?


Normally jump starting doesn't involve disconnecting anything. You put the leads from a good battery onto the terminals of the bad battery and start the vehicle. I hope you didn't put the good battery on, start the vehicle and remove the battery with the engine still running and connect the old one? That is a recipe to cause electrical damage as the charge from the alternator has nowhere to dissipate its excess amps.

Check your fuses.

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.

My 2006 chevy trailblazer 2wd 6cyl wont start. makes clicking noise, then nothing lights/radio etc work but wont start what is it


You got a jump and it ran fine? It's your battery. The lights and radio are much easier for a battery to handle than spinning a car engine. Again, if all you needed was a jump, you have a bad 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

I have the same problem, it seems related to the security system, maybe your key chip died, some times disconectin g the battery for some 10 minutes solves the problem

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.
