I would have the battery tested. Is the charger on all the time? What is it charging?

99 suzuki vitara v6 turns on all power but wont


the starter uses 10x more elect. power than the head lamps
or 100x more than dash lamps. it means little.
what matters most is jumper cable starts.
does it crank with jumper cables to a running, donor car,(aaa jump)
no bad starter
no, bad starter key line( immobliizer or such) ask how to test.
yes, cranks great, now.
that means the battery was dead,
i charge the battery and it now cranks, due to lights left on or
charge system failure, if battery goes to 13.3 to 15v running good
if on the charge system failed. (causing battery discharge)
if after charging a battery it will not crank car, its a bad battery (jumps ok)

Why does catera starts and runs great than other times won't even turn over and we have to jump. checked alternator-good battery-good ?


Check that all your ground wires are well attached and attaching points are clean and free of corrosion. Also check for parasitic drains such as an underhood light, trunk light, map light, floor lights, something plugged into dc outlet like a cell phone charger left plugged in, etc. is not draining your battery overnight or over time when parked.

How do you recode the radio in my 2005 vw beetle


You can run your radio a number of days and will not run the battery way down. I had a car that did that and each night when I shut the car off I disconnected one fuse and did that till the battery did not run down. It took several times and I would write down the fuse I pulled. I found something was malfunctioning in my air conditioning switch area. My mechanic replaced something and is ok now. Not saying that is your problem.

Hello i have a 1991 dodge dakota and it has recently died due to the lights being left on. I have been able to use jumper cables to get it started i used a 2000 chevrolet malibu for this. I have left it...


Replace the battery. Draining a car battery down completely will cause damage and decrease its capacity. If the battery was more than a couple of years old then it's time to replace.

It wont start at all and we put jumper cables and


You might want to have then check the alternator. Sometimes an alternator will test ok but once it has been running for a while, the dilinoids (not sure about the spelling), will basically cause a short circuit in the electrical system and the alternator is no longer charging the battery which drains the battery.

I forgot to turn off the lights in my car. What can I do to start the car running? Do I need to replace the battery?


You need someone to boost you with jumper cables.Battery will be fine after you let the car run for a bit.The alternator will recharge your battery.

Jump start won't work on my 2004 Touareg V6


It all depends on several variables.
  • Were the connections clean? (battery cables and posts
  • Did you have a good connection with the jumper cables? (some battery posts are hard to get at and clamping a jumper cable can be difficult)
  • How long were the jumper cables left on? (weaker batteries will require leaving the jumpers on for a longer period of time (15-30 minutes)
  • Was the other car running? (jumping battery to battery will have the same effect as jumping alternator to battery)
  • Was the car with the dead battery warm or cold? (if the car you're trying to start was hot, it may not be the battery that's at fault
If the car you're trying to start is cold, ensure your battery connections are clean (manually cleaning is better but there are some very good sprays that work pretty well.  Leave the jumpers on for a longer period of time with the other car running.
I hope this solves your problem.  Best of luck.

1990 Lincoln-Battery drained while turned off sitting


If you are jumpering the starter, then the battery is not being drained, the starter may have a bad solenoid.
If the problem still is a dead short, a painstaking troubleshooting is required.
Remove one fuse at a time, check for voltage drop, and see which one is the culprit. Then you woud have to locate each item on that circuit and trace the wires for one that is broken, or pinched & contacting ground.
Also, check at night or in a dark garage, as trunk, door, or hood pin switches may be stuck in the open position - and will keep the lights on.

Interesting note - your having to jumper the solenoid on the starter indicates a possible worn/damaged ignition tumbler. If your tumbler is not seating on the OFF detent, your ACC may still be left on even with the key out of the ignition.
