I would like to add that my 1500 has 2 batteries but only 1 gets used to start the other one is for trailering and accesories. and i found over the years that you can put the biggest battery you can find in your vehicle. i have 2 -1000 ca/800cca batteries in my truck. and one just the same in my "67" olds no problems. bigger is always better. even for your alternator.

If the battery you just bought isn't cranking over the motor (should sound like the motor is turning over slower than before) you may have bought the wrong battery. Batteries have different ratings based on what they are used for. One thing to look at is CCA's or Cold Cranking Amps. If you bought a new battery with less CCA's than what the engine calls for, even though all car batteries are rated for same voltage, your amperage is off and isn't quite enough to give the starter the power it needs to kick over your engine. By jumping the truck, you are giving it the bit of extra power needed. Now battery cables could also be a problem.....I had a set of jumper cables that were very cheap and they never transfered power the same way as my $80 pair that had a better gauge wire...same thing for battery cables but generally this shouldn't be an issue. If you have your old battery still, look at the CCA's on the battery label and compare them to the new battery.....should be different.

Battery dies unless positive cable is disconnected & then reconnected to start it.


Could still be your starter relay or starter itself. Turn your headlights on and then crank. Do headlights dim greatly when cranking?

Have a short causing battery to drop to 1.5 volts in a few days, new battery.


You have a draw on the bat. With neg bat cable removed connect amp meter in line with neg bat post to neg clamp check amp draw. Start pulling fuse until you find the draw.

Car sarted fine then went to a meeting for a few hours and came out to start the car and it wouldnt start. It would turnover but would not start. had to get it jumped and after that the check engine light...


Well if jumping the car starts it but not on its own it is probably one of two things either the battery is not good or the alternator is not charging the battery I would take the car to (of course after jump starting) an auto parts store and do a load test on the battery. they should have the equipment to check without removing the battery. if battery is good try the alternator again they should have equipment to check while still in the car.

My 97 Pathfinder won't turnover. It clicks, it gives one push but then does nothing. It starts when I jump it and after it's charged for a while, but when it's been sitting it's like t


could be poor connection from battery to battery cable terminal. take off both pos. & neg. battery terminals, clean & reinstall, making sure there is a tight connection. if the cables are loose (even just one) or if the battery cable seems degraded with corrosion, they should be replaced. could also do a load-test on the battery... it should stay strong under load, and shouldn't drop to below 11 volts under load. if it does you have a bad battery, even though it may seem good otherwise.

86 Bronco Lost all power (eletrical) and will not start


I own the 87 year model and had a similar experience after being off-road. Found positive cable to be in contact with chassis. try checking to see if this is the case in your situation using an ohm meter with the bat disconnected. should have infinite ohms between pos cable clamp and chassis ground.
