On a very intermittent basis my car won't turn over and it appears as if you have a completely dead battery but it's not. Any ideas?


Please check the following:
- Check the specific gravity of the battery.
- Perform the battery test.
- Perform the voltage drop test.
- Check the battery terminals for corrosion, sulfate deposits and looseness. (Remove the battery terminals, wash them with Luke warm water, dry them, spray wet type contact cleaner and fix them back).
- Perform alternator test with and without load.
- Check the main fuses, battery cables and connectors in the fuse and relay box under the hood.
Hope that works.

1999 BMW 728I wont turn over


> the key would not turn in the door-lock

Are you sure that you are using the correct key?
Did you recently separate/divorce from your partner/spouse?
Did the ex-spouse have the car "rekeyed", so that the "old" keys no longer work?

Did you recharge or replace the dead battery?

202 monte carlo ss put new battery in now it's dead then i recharged it now it's dead again after running the car


Check all the light in the car, one must be on. Check the sun visor lights first. Others include under-hood light, trunk lights and interior lights that come on by themselves due to faulty switches. Other reasons are a bad diode in the alternator, disconnect it and see what happens..

1993 buick lesabre shut off while driving,battery was dead then bought a new battery drove well for 3 weeks then shut off while driving again had to jumpstart it.


Your alternator is bad. It's not recharging the battery as you are driving. The car is using battery voltage until it is all used up and then the engine dies. Replace the alternator and recharge the battery.

My mercedes sat for 10 months while I recuperated from injuries. The battery was completely dead. Remote didn't even work. We were able to jumpstart it with battery cables but it won't keep running. Dead...


You will burn out your alternator if you keep on doing this.The alternator is not a charger. If you have a dead battery you should always charge it overnight on a charger.To keep the battery fresh all that you have to do is disconnect the terminals.Yes this is normal because the car has clocks and alarms that drain power even when the key is off. If you let the battery set to long while it is drained it will not take a charge.

2008 Toyota Avalon Battery Problem


I doubt this is a smart key problem, the key uses a chip and its own battery. Something in the car is causing a drain, a light is staying on possibly. Trunk light, glove box light, under hood light... maybe you have a portable GPS unit plugging into the auxilary port? Just a thought. This is not a common problem that has been reported by Avalon owners as of yet.
