SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Sentra car will not start but battery is 100% charged, will start when boosted though

check your battery cables to see if the cables themselves are corroded and also check the connections where they connect to the vehicle that they are clean
positivecable will connect at the starter and the negative will connect to the engine some where.
if this does not help then have your starter tested to see if it is dragging. as it could be the armature or the brushes in the starter.

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

SOURCE: car not starting after sitting over night or after

Sounds like you have something draining the battery down. You probably something staying on thats not supposed too. I would start with the brake circuit.

SOURCE: dead battery on tahoe 2005 - now no power to ignition

Remove a battery terminal for 5 min. This will allow the computer to reset. Resecure the cable and try to start.

I've been told by a Porsche dealer,that you should not jumpstart from another car battery( like we've all done with our first old cars some 40 years ago) and that I should use a booster pack! I have a W...

The booster pack has a lower amperage ability and will not allow you to cross connect the jumper cables and possibly fry you electrical system. Simply saferand usually idiot proof

Battery is drained

try an old fashioned battery boost from another car or truck. leave the other car running while boosting your. run booster cable from the booster car to your truck make sure to run them the same way on each battery. positive on booster to positive side battery on the truck. run the negative from booster car to negative on your truck. allow the car to run for about 10minutes before you attempt to start your truck. this allows your battery to build up enough charge for the start up of your truck. after your truck starts take the cables off right away. let your truck run for at least 15minutes to allow time for your battery to build up before you attempt to drive it.that way if it should die,you'll have enough charge on your battery for a restart. thank you for choosing hope this helps.

You may have to charge the battery for quite a while for there to be enough power to crank the starter AND power up all the computers AND run the fuel pump AND have enough left over after all that to operate the injectors and spark plugs. Later model cars don't jump start as easilly as older cars.

1998 Saturn will not start. Battery connections are clean. No clicking noise, simply won't start. All electrical works. I turn the key to start position and nothing happens, no sound...nothing, Thank you.

try an old fashioned boost from another car using booster cables.or use a battery charger and allow it to charge for 30minutes. either way you choose,if you choose the boost off allow the booster car to run while cables are connected to your car battery,your battery may just be completely dead. after connecting the cables,positive to positive,and negative to negative,allow the booster car to run for 10minutes before you attempt to start your car.this will allow time for your car battery to slightly charge enough to start.if this does'nt work then check for a bad starter.hope this helps and thank you for choosing

No power to engine no tick over

suggest you try to boost the car off by another car. you may have to have the cables hooked to your car for about 15minutes to let your battery build up enough to start yours though.or if you have a battery charger, hook it to it and let it charge for 15minutes. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Car wont start-not a gig

it sounds as if you might have to replace the battery, if your battery is shot you can still get a boost and the car will run because the alternator produces electricity which should take car of the cars functions and top up the charge on the battery. if the battery is no longer taking the charge or not holding it as soon as you shut it off it will not have enough power to start the starter. A lot of automotive place will do a check on your battery if you take it to them.

please note that i'm not a mechanic and this is just based on my own experiance
