It might be the starter, if it gets too much use the armature might be too weak and need extra Amps to get it to work right.

My scion xb 2005 wont start i charged the battery for 30 min or so and still wont start but i can turn on the radio, lower the windows, and start the air conditioner(does not get cold)


Still possibly a battery fault, radio uses about .3 amp, windows 3-5 amps, STARTER needs approx 30 amps. So a bad battery will power the auxiliaries but not the starter. Try a boost start from a known good battery and take it from there.

My will not start unless i get a boost but the power still works without it being boosted, i.e. lights,alarm, radio, windows etc, what can the problem be


Change the battery, your battery gone bad, and isn't fully recharging itself, and isn't havn't the min cranking amp require by your car to startup the engine, however there still enought charge in there only to power windows, radio etc. When starting a engine, you need at least a min cranking amp, and requires more when it's cold outside.

My 1981 corvette won't start...there is no power getting from the battery to the engine...how can i fix this? I have tried charging the battery and jump starting it. I have also purchased a new battery....


If you have no power to anything, such as headlights
radio/wipers etc. The fusable link at the starter may
have fried. Try using a jumper wire from the battery connection on the alternator to the + post on the batt.
If you get you're power back, replace the link wire.
It's a rust colored wire on the battery con. at the solenoid.They somtimes have a yellow tag with the amp rating. This was a fairly common problem back
in the day. Also check for any shorted wires that may
have caused the link to pop, and make sure the alt.
starter and battery connections are clean and tight.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you had a weak battery,and now it's a dead battery. Go get you're charging system checked. Auto Zone does if for free. Could be an alternator too but it most likely your battery. And they'll put in your new battery for ya too. FREE!

Good luck

Car wont start or take boost


Sounds like your battery has a dead cell. The cranking amps required to start a vehicle is considerably more than to power accessories. The alarm may have a safety feature that will make it go off if the battery voltage is too low (or if someone disconnects your battery). Have your battery tested (with and without a load) and repost if this isn't the problem.
