You can drive it that way, but you might get tired of jumping it every time you want to start it.

After driving my car whaen i tyurn it off it wont start again without a jump but the battery is still good .but then after it has cooled off it will some times start agasin


Sounds like the starter motor, what can happen is when the engine is cold the battery fills like there's not enough power to start it and when you jump it it will go after a while and when the engine is warm it's OK to start still , starter motor good luck colin

After having had to jump start the battery, the camera and radio don't work. How do you reset it or check to see if something got disconnected when jumped.?


Normally jump starting doesn't involve disconnecting anything. You put the leads from a good battery onto the terminals of the bad battery and start the vehicle. I hope you didn't put the good battery on, start the vehicle and remove the battery with the engine still running and connect the old one? That is a recipe to cause electrical damage as the charge from the alternator has nowhere to dissipate its excess amps.

Check your fuses.

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?

BATTERY SHOWS 12.84 VOLTS BUT WONT START UNLESS JUMPED METER SHOWS 14.2VOLT WITH ENGINE RUNNING


Hi,
First thing to do is clean both battery connections.Fords are really bad for the battery connections corroding. When this happens you can get a good volt reading but not be getting enough amps. Next is to disconnect clean and reattach the electrical connections at the starter. Also check along the wires going from the battery to the starter to make sure the insulation has not been damaged. It is unlikely but possible that a critter or road debris damaged the insulation and caused one of the wires to corrode. The starter is the heaviest draw on the battery so physical damage to the electrical system will show up here first. If everything else checks out you will want to have the starter checked. If you are capable of removing it most major auto parts stores can bench test them.
Hope this is helpful to you. Good Luck!

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

IF the alternator is not putting out anything. The car will run till the battery is not able to produce enough to fire the ignition, then it will die, It wont restart either. Jumping it will start it for 5 or ten minutes, this is with no warning either.

Can I jump start the CLS500 from the 12-V lighter plug


Don't do that, if you don't know how the jump start Mercedes Benz be careful it's so dangerous, if you do one simple wrong thing when you jump start it can damage your all electronic management system if in case you did the wrong thing you may have to spend $ xxxxxxx, if you don't know how to do that get help from someone who know how to do it, keep in mind don't mix up negative and positive cable when you jump the battey at least jest for a 000.1 second, that's enough for get damage, battery jump start point in engine compartment have a good look, has covered by read cap, open cap and you can see copper point in it fix the read battery cable (+ positive cable) on it then connect other end of same cable to the + terminal of battery again I would like to remind don't mix up, after connect + terminal please double check did the right, then connect - cable on to the Body ground connection near by positive point you can see another probe for ground it's located near the shockabsober top mount, after that connect other end of negative cable to the negative terminal of battery before connect it once again check other 3 connection are in right order

Car wiil not start while turning key but makes a ticking noise


Obvious choise is a dead battery.

Check your lights, horn (horn often sounds weak or sickly with a dead battery.)

If a dead battery, check the battery terminals for corrosion.

Try charging or jumping the car off. If it starts, take to an auto parts place, most will do a battery/alternator check for free. (Be prepared, they will make you kill the engine, which means you either buy a battery there & replace, or better have cables to jump off and drive somewhere else. on other hand, most will lend you some wore out tools to install the new battery, but their insurance does not allow them to do it for you. )

'97 Mitsubishi Galant starts when jumped, runs fine to destination, won't start again unless jumped. Ideas?


You have a bad battery or bad connections to your battery. Try to charge the battery first. If the problem still occurs then replace the battery. It should be ok after this. good luck.
