Some power but won't start without jumping

The battery is bad. the plates are warped or sulfated.
our shop see that all the time.just change the battery and make sure the terminals are clean and tight and the starter connection is good.

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.

2002 Buick Rendezvous has Power to lights, horn etc, but won't start. Just get a clicking sound. Battery only 6 months old.


Have a load test done on the battery as it indicates a dead cell . Check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight. There is no real life span on batteries and that is what warranties are for.

My bmw 320i 05 model wont start (no sound) and there is no dead battery sign on the dash board


If your battery is dead enough, even the dead battery indicator won't light. Take the battery to an autoparts store for a bench test/charge first before trying anything else.

Car appears to have no power at all nothing battery good 6 months old had just driven it cut it off came back no power no lights no noise that door is open or key in ignition nothing


try to check the battery terminal. I had the same problem 3 days ago. All I did was tighten the battery terminal. If this doesn't work. try to test the battery. Its possible that that the battery is bad already even if its still new.
