Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

YES.. the battery is bolted down w/a 12mm bolt. You need to look harder. Toward the front of the battery. You will find a battery lock-down plate and its 12mm bolt.

Hi there?
You need to test the battery itself. It could be faulty battery. Some batteries have a little LED bult in them, green led good battery, amber led battery needs charging, red led battery needs replacing.
You could allways disconnect the battery after the use of the car. if the battery still goes flat then you need to replace that battery.

Car wont start no lights and batterie is dead . jump it and it starts right up


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to make sure the battery is holding a proper charge. Clean the terminals and clean the post. You could have a weak alternator draining your battery. You can test it by starting the car and unplugging the hot side battery terminal once the battery is charged. If it dies instantly, your alternator is bad. You may need a new battery.

Need battery size for 1996 Dodge Caravan


your cars battery might only need charging or battery acid replacement, but if you'd realy wish to buy new one, buy one with the same size and voltage and amps as the one you have right now, or you could buy a battery with the same voltage with a higher amppere-hour (Ah) rating!

Need size of battery for 2000 ford focus


Dependant on engine size and fuel type, any size from a 390 amp battery, if it is diesel then a 590 amp battery. No special tools needed, only a small ring spanner. Make sure yyou disconnect the earth lead first. Also you will need to enter the radio code after changing batteries

on some cars you need to remove a black piece of plastic forward of the windshield to get to the battery terminals.  You truly need anew battery.
