2004 dodge durango runs good but every know and than when i try to start it, it wont start but if i put jumper cables to it starts right up and car is good to go a few days later same problem any ideas...


Either something is draining the starting voltage from your battery.. A short or grounded circuit. Or your starter or starter solenoid is starting to go. Starters need a certain range of voltage to engage and start. As they get older they wear and require more voltage to kick in and start.. Have your battery and starter tested under load that way you can tell the condition of the starter

Our car tries to start and then drains battery and turns over just wont start


Check for spark at plugs, fuel pressure, compression test to see what area is failing.

I have had my 1996 nissan maxima for a few days and i moved it out of the drive way for my girlfriend to leave and when i went out there about 15 minutes later it wouldnt start. the battery is fine, what...


Sounds like a starter that has given up the ghost to me. However, I would still test the battery and check all of the cable connections before replacing the starter. (Unless you have performed a proper load test on the battery, you really do not know that it is any good.)

My Citroen Xsara 2001 model is always getting a battery drain. A brand new battery run flat drain in just 40mins of drive and just stop and wont start again the car. But after putting a brnad new battery...


If you have a test light, what you want to do it to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Connect the test light between the negative post on the battery and the negative cable. Be sure your doors are closed and the hood switch if you have one isn't on. If you are showing the light lit, then you have a draw. To isolate the circuit you pull one fuse at a time and replace it until the light goes out. That way you have isolated the circuit that's causing the drain. from there just start tracing wires.

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.

Truck Wont Start and Battery Runs Down.


get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight

Battery drained dead in ocld weather


Could be both batteries went bad.
1) I would take battery back to where you bought it and have them test.
2) Check, or have someone check, that battery power is not being used when the key is off and the car is not being used in any way. There will be a slight trickle of power use, but nothing that would wear the battery down in less than 3-4 weeks.
