Make sure battery leads are tight. Try to turn the cable on the terminal. If it turns not tight enough.

Why will the truck not start when the temp gets 20 degrees but it will when I jumped what do I need to do


1. If you can jump start the truck to get it started but not start it with the current battery then you battery is most likely bad and needs to be replaced. (See 2 also).

The problem is the battery is most likely not producing the CCA (cold cranking amps) and CA (cranking amps) that it is supposed to and did when new .( These CCA/CA ratings are listed on the battery label.) In that event you will never be able to start the vehicle.

A basic voltmeter and basic load tester won't tell you if the battery is failing to produce the required CA / CCA to get the vehicle started. Both can indicate your battery is quite passable and OK until a CA/CCA tester is applied and will show the CA/CCA the battery is actually producing which in a failing battery will be well below spec.

2. You should also disconnect the battery cables and clean the battery terminals and cable clamps. If dirty you can get very poor current flow from the existing battery. As a first step check these connections and clean them and eliminate dirty terminals as the cause of your power issue before replacing the battery as suggested.

Wont start with key


Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.

Car will crank but not start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Engine will not crank over when vehicle sets for extended period of time (5-6 hours), but will start when jumpers are hooked directly to starter? *already installed 694 cranking amp battery and grounded...


If battery is new, and altenator test good which would mean your battery is getting charged, then check the igntion wire that goes to the solenoid. They can get loose, broken, or dirty connections.
Check your battery cable connections on battery and on starter and ground to make sure they are very clean as well as tight.

1995 Jeep Grand cherokee limited V8, Won't start. engine cranks just fine, good battery. 12+volts to the coil. Doesn't seem to have any pressure in fuel rail after cranking. Picked up jeep yesterday...


hi, this could be you have not reset the ALARM, when you toke the battery off. please undo the NAGATIVE lead OFF the BATTERY and hold the battery lead ON (for 2 seconds) then take battery lead OFF. you will hear the ALARM make a funny noise (this resets the alarm), put the battery lead ON again and the alarm should SOUND then tighten the NEGATIVE LEAD TO THE BATTERY. if not you need to get the ALARM TO SOUND, need to undo battery NEGATIVE and do the same as above. there is a knack to it. then this will work. THE SYSTEM IS LIKE THIS FOR SECURITY RESONS. gerry

Car died while driving, all the electrical went out. Replaced battery, all the lights and systems worked, but car wouldn't turn over, haven't been able to get started, any thoughts?


Check the starter draw with an inductive ammeter that has a probe that goes around the neg. or pos. wire to the battery.

If the draw is 75Amps to 100 Amps or above and it doesn't turn, the starter is bad.

If the draw is 0 or 1 Amp and the starter doesn't turn, it could be a solenoid on the starter, where the starter needs to be replaced.
