SOURCE: 2005 cts battery has full charge will not start

It's possible that the starter itself is in trouble. Remove it and take to your favorite auto parts supplier--they will usually test it for free and be happy to supply you with a fresh one if needed. Hope this helps!

Battery voltage is definitely and issue. Charge your battery and have it tested before condemning the starter.

I was driving and the radio started going on and off also the dashboard lights started going on and off than it died and wont start. whats wrong?


if nothing comes on check the battery has a charge and that the alternator belt is intact. If they are both fine check the fusebox has not suffered damage. Does anything come on when you turn the key? Sounds a bit odd but the battery/alternator is where you should make a start

Sounds as if your battery might be dead. If your alternator quit charging and you used all of the power in your battery, you car would act as you have described.

Refueled my 2006 cts now it won't start


had the same thing happen to me. dealership told me it was a safety feature that when it runs out of gas it wont start again without clearing the code so they said. I hade mine towed to dealership and let them mess with it, cause I also put more gas in it and eventually drained my battery trying to start it.

I just changed my oil and Now the car won't start.


Your battery needs to be around 12.6 volts to start. Try jumpstarting your vehicle, or purchase a cheap battery charger for around 20$, and let it charge for a couple hours.

Are your power seats working? Mine shorted out and several days later my battery was dead because the short was drawing power from the battery when the car was not running. If your battery and charging system check out o.k, I would say you have some kind of parasitic drain on your battery.

The dealers know about a problem with the batteries and will replace under warranty. The original batteries were defective. I just bought a 2006 CTS and after test driving the car the battery died and wouldnt restart. The dealer replaced the battery. You should not have to pay a dime.
