Could be all manner of things, but i would start with the regulator/rectifier - get that replaced & work on from there, you could have seriously damaged the internal workings due to consistent jump starting, that should have been the time to ask what was going on , now you have just confounded the issue

SOURCE: 1998 ford contour start up, alternator? battery?

Sounds to me like you drained your donor battery to the point where you can't jumpstart your car anymore. If you jump a car and it runs for a little bit but then dies that means your alternator is toast. If it was a bad ground, you would see sparks or a fire... Your battery only starts the car, once it is running your alternator supplies the electrical system and charges your battery back up. If you need more in depth help in replacing the alternator go to www.contour.org and get on the forums.

SOURCE: My vehicle dies everytime I turn it off...

how old is your battery,have you tried a new one?Sometimes a really stuffed battery also interferes with the ECU,and can result in switching things on and off.

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage DE dies when idling

with the battery fully charged try scraping the positive over the terminal on the battery and see if it sparks like a draw is sucking out amps if theres no draw on the battery it wont spark at all (good) if it sparks (bad) you have something grounded and killing your battery.. gl

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

Transmission or altenator?


I would say change the alternator out. Start with the simplest and cheapest factor first. Without the alternator keeping the engine running its hard to put it any gear.

Jumpstart 1995 oldsmobile aurora


I'm not sure if the Aurora is a special type of car that requires a different way of jumping, but when u jump start most cars, you place the red end of the jumper cables on the positive/ red side of the battery and the black end on the negative. You want to make sure the jumper clamps are touching the metal part of the battery post (so if there's covers on the battery posts, move them so the cables have good connection. The same procedure is used on both cars. Be careful not to touch the end of the cables together, as doing so will make them spark if one end is connected to the running vehicle. Let your car charge a minute then try to start. If it starts, let it charge for 5-10 minutes and run/ drive your car after disconnecting to make sure the battery does not die the next time you shut it off. If it does not start after a few minutes of charging, adjust the clamps to make sure they have a good connection, wait 2-5 minutes longer & try to start your car again. *It is normal to hear the car that is jumping you idle more quietly when your car starts pulling juice from the charged battery. Also, remove jumper cables after charging, making sure not to touch the ends togther- as it will spark again. *it is not necessary to shut off the car that's jumping you before attatching the cables, or after charging. If your car still doesn't start after repeatedly adjusting cables and trying other cables to see if it is the cables not working, you may need a new battery or alternator. I would have the battery tested to see if you need a new battery before considerring the altinator.

1991 Camry, ran battery down, won't start with jump.


Check all fuses under dash and hood. Install a good battery or jump it. Have someone try to crank it while you check for voltage to the starter solenoid. Make sure all battery connection including ground to body are clean and tight. If good, make sure there is 12volts at the stater. If good, it sounds like a new sarter. Please let me know. Is this standard or automatic?
