The threads on the bolt or in the battery may be cross threaded. If so I would recommend replacing the battery and the cable bolt.

My 2003 galant runs but when i shut it off i need a jump i had a service engine light on and it said i needed a camshaft sensor replaced now nomore light but car still wont start without jumps


Needing a jump can mean several things.
The cables could be dirty or not tight again, the battery may be loosing power if the car sits, and so on.
Someone would need to check the battery with a meter when it won't crank and find out if the battery is fully charged, and if the starter is getting power.

Replaced alternator and battery on my 2001 mazda tribute. now the battery drains if the vehicle sits for one day.


remove your boot & glove box light to check if they are the problem. let it sit without the globes in for couple days then try.

Runs fine then seems like engine shuts off and right back on


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 92 88 royal osmobile security light came on and tried both keys wont start dont have alot of money or a dealership in my area what is the best way and cheapest way 2 by pass it


Disconnect the positive termanl on the battery for about 3 min. reconect the battery the computer should be reset. Drive the car for about 30 min. if it takes that long to get to the inspection station then drive there and it should pass as long as the light hasn't come on prior to arriving at inspection station.if so see how long it takes for light to come on go about that far away from inspection station disconnect battery and try again.
