If u can get it to your local auto parts store, aask them to do a battery/alternator/ starter test. One of the three may be the culprit.

Hi

Odds are your battery is ok based on what you have said.

Such being the case..your car should have started because essentially all you did was bypass the job the alternator would normally do.

If after driving the vehicle sometime and it would not start for you after the fact, then you have the possibility of two culprits..the alternator not charging the battery or, the battery not holding a charge.

Back to the vehicle not starting after you charged the battery...

Check all the connections are clean and tight at the battery.
Check all grounds on the frame in the engine compartment for the same,including your alternator and starter wiring and grounds.
Check the fuses/relays box in both the passenger and the engine compartments.
Once that has been done, as mentioned, then have you should have your alternator tested and/ or starter tested.

Best of luck.

Good luck

How to changed wiper blade for 2007 Acura RL


There are only 3 types of blade, when you buy blades, you will also receive a installation manual, compare it with your wipe, see which type it is, and follow the instruction.
If you don't know how, go to autozone or O'Reilly, ask staff to help, they USUALLY are willing to help.
