1 Answer

Intermittantly I go to start my 1999 tacoma and nothing...like the battery is dead. Then I retry and it starts right up. I should mention the battery was replaced last winter. We are experiencing heat of up to 123 degrees during the day right now.

If you have an autozone they can run a free battery test to see if the battery has internal problems. you can possibly have bad connections at the battery posts, making it not start. if not, your wiring down on your started could have come loose, and is causing you problems

Battery dead...cannot get the cargo hatch open without power.


If you jump started and nothing happened then you have a poor connection or your jump leads were too small. You need welding cable size leads and heavy clamp to get the current to a dead car. Leads the size of straw won't do it. Get it connected properly and retry. Try connecting to the starter terminal, then open the trunk, then try from the battery end. A good home mech should be able to work it out.

Chevy troubleshooter. Car wouldn't start got it jump went to shop nothing wrong with battery or altnator or connections car started fine a few times then it took a few seconds to connect something isn't...


Hi Linda, I'm glad to help!
If I'm reading you message right, your cars battery is going dead and you must jump start it to get it to run. Here's the thing, a cars battery and alternator can be just fine. BUT, the system can still have a draw coming from somewhere that can draw all the power out of the battery and thats why you need to jump it. This can happen intermittantly as well making it almost impossible to find the draw. If this is whats happening then your mechanic will need the vehicle for awhile to find the draw. I'm not there so its hard for me to say this is whats going on, but it's a good place to start diagnosis. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Linda!

Battery starts intermittantly


Probably nothing to do with the battery.
Could be a faulty starter or switch.
When it fails to crank a mechanic would check for power at the starter and work back to the key switch.

Turn key to start and nothing


Not if you left your headlights on all night and completely drained the battery. if it is dead, try to jump it, if you get some sort of power with the jumpers attached, go buy a new battery.

Truck won't start


You should check your battery cables with an ohmmeter and see if they have any resistance,they should be at 0 ohms or just alittle over,but could possibly be the starter solenoid also.I had this same problem with my Toyota last year,hard starting sometimes needed a jump and then the alt went bad,turned out to be the solenoid was shorting intermittantly.Hope this helps.
