Question about Cars & Trucks
When the engine could not start I checked on the battery and found the terminals were loose and when I tightened the engine started and that when the radio stopped
Sounds like you activated the theft protection on the radio. Usually there is code in the owners manual that you can enter to reset the radio.

SOURCE: My 2005 jeep liberty (3.7)rear
My jeep wouldn't start, not even the horn or doors would lock and when I checked the back, it would make a noise but not open the rear window/door at all. A friend came over and tried for over half an hour to jump it but it wouldn't start still. Yesterday, my 16 yr old son, unknown to me, went to walmart and got another battery, but while the car runs now, a lot of the electrical stuff like inside lights and the radio no longer work now..there was a specific code on the battery, but he didn't ask anyone at the walmart service desk what kind of battery would work for the jeep, but called a friend, and so got one and put it in. My son says that a few of the fuses might be blown and that they don't cost that much to fix, but I am concerned that he bought the wrong damn battery for the jeep. It's an 05 jeep liberty, and I have extended coverage for it through mercury, but I have not been able to reach them since this happened yesterday on a saturday, and they are closed on weekends. The code for the battery that was in it, when I called and asked the walmart they gave me was 4609365AD, based on what one person saw on the battery, and the replacement battery is a walmart 'everlast', and the only numbers I see on that are 26-5N 630 525. Can someone tell me if he did get the right battery replacement based on that?

sounds like you need a new battery, it probably isnt running enought cranking amps to start your car, try a different battery and it should start fine

replace the starter relay located in the fuse panel in the engine compartment... i think on the volvo that would be near the firewall but look near the battery for the fuse panel

Honda is notorius for bad MAIN RELAYS the solder in them crack and can not be seen with the nacked eye. This is due to simple expansion & contraction the solder heats up & cools down. Try that.
