If it ran well before and it doesn't now, check the battery. It may be you don't have enough CCA as if it's the wrong ratting or it may not have enough charge from sitting on the self or it could also be bad - rare but it happens. After that you'll need to check the battery connections to make sure they are snug and are not corroded sometimes they get corroded in the sleeve and you can't see. Make sure the ground is secure to the body then after all the check starter.

Installed new battery on 2006 Galant and it still wont crank the engine. Put Jumpers on and it starts. Whats the problem?


If you're jumping with the jumper neg lead on engine block (like you should) then you have a bad ground lead.
If you are jumpering to the battery terminals then the connection to the battery itself is bad. Clean the battery connector terminals.

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

Cant start my 1995 xj6 after installing new battery


Your car has lost some kind of security system programming. You need the dealer to look into this and do whatever programming is required.

Car won't start. New battery installed recently. Only clicks when trying to start.


one single click any time you turn the key usually indicates a bad solenoid on the starter. A new starter will typical get you going.

A series of rapid clicks when you try to start usually indicates a weak battery. There could also be a bad connection at the terminals on the battery or even a poor connection at the starter.

If you get a single click and everything goes dead for a couple of seconds than you definitely have a bad connection at the battery.

Let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

I thought the battery was dead because it would not turn over when the switch was turned on. I was at Wal-mart parking lot when this happened so I went inside to get new battery, but did not have tools to...


Hi.
Ensure that you have not left one of the battery positive cables, ensure that the battery connectors are well sticking to battery terminals. Go back to Wal Mart and get a car tester to check if the battery is properly wired.
Also test using your old battery.
If the car has power, and there are lights and devices coming on inside the car, then the problem is immobilizer.

How do I uninstall and install an alternator on a '93 thunderbird??


ericka1 hold up on the alternator! You have a new battery in the car, now what's going on? When u turn the key on, does your engine turn over (crank)? The alternator charges the battery when the car is running, if u have a new battery in the car, it should start, even if the alternator is bad. The alternator would cause the battery to lose it's charge if it is bad. So, 1st thing to check (if car won't start), is there spark at the spark plugs, and is fuel getting to the spark plugs. You must have both for the car to start and run. Check that out 1st, and provide info, we can take it from there.
