Hi:
I am not sure what was the reason why your battery needed replacing, but if it was dead, I am guessing your alternator wasn't charging it?
Take off the serpentine belt on your engine, and check to see if all accessory items turn smoothly, to include the power steering pump, AC, alternator, and the idler pulley. If any of these wont turn , the car won't crank either. If you totally remove the belt, you can see if the car will start, and go from there, but don't let it run too long without the belt.

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

My car won't crank, lights work, horn blow and


Starter not turning over?
Controlled by integrated starter selenoid. SOMETIMES, tapping the starter will cause the selenoid to operate.
Assume that voltage (12Vdc) is getting to the starter when the key is in the start position (take 2 people and a voltmeter to check it).

My truck won't start. It won't turn over... only clicking noise.. even with a jump. the headlights work but very dimly.. orange lights next to headlights flash on and off dimly consistently as well...


When a battery is very low, even a jump won't work because the battery takes too much out of the jump. Take the battery out and have it charged up.
If it won't take a charge, get a new one.
But also make sure the battery terminals and cable ends are shiny and greased.

If you really want to be sure, put a voltmeter on it.
A good battery should be 12.5.
When you crank it should go down to about 10.
If it goes below 9, either the battery is too low, or the starter is draining too much.
If it never goes below 11, it is not draining enough, and the solenoid is probably bad.
If when you stop cranking, it comes back up to over 11, then the battery is good, so the starter is probably bad.
