Please check the alternator and the rectifier/regulator to confirm if the charging current is good, if not one of the above is faulty.

please find some tips if the battery is draining off from my tips link:

Subaru outback 2005 , replaced battery, radio and aircon not working no lights or power

When you turn the key you get nothing at all?
perhaps you put the cables on the wrong way and shorted something out?
or maybe the wires arent tight enough on the battery?
did you try hooking up booster cables? often when you buy a new battery it comes uncharged and needs to be charged properly on a good trickle charger.

hopefully you didnt hook the battery up backwards and short out the ECM...

What makes Battery Light flash on and off on a 2000 grand vitara

This can usually be traced to the alternator belt slipping...aged, stretched, and needs replaced. Do have the charging system (alternator, batttery) tested for free at your local parts store before you may be stranded with a dead (uncharged battery) Hope this helps.

Car starts when it's jump but won't start again could it be the starter

the battery in your in car is maybe drained or damaged or the alternator which suppose to charge your battery is not working so the battery remains uncharged. One way to know if battery is not being charged, jump your car and disconnect from jump leads and take out any one of battery terminals. If engine stops, then your alternator is not working and if it remains idling, then your battery is faulty. Replace battery and see if it works.

My car just clicks when I try to start it but it doesn't start. It will jumpstart but once I turn it off it want restart

The clicking sound is a sign of a drained battery. Check your battery cables for loose or corroded terminals, if everything OK, jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts store to have your Starting/Charging System checked. They perform this test free of charge.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

If you have a fully charged battery when you installed then 14 volts is way to much charge for the battery which would mean that the alternator probably has a faulty regulator and the alternator needs to be changed otherwise you will continue to install new batteries. If the battery was in an uncharged state then it is possible for the alternator to charge at full capacity to charge up the battery.

Santa fe wont start.

Clean & scrape battery connections well to assure good electrical contact. Charge battery fully on charger. When you get it started after this, make sure that car is charging battery , first by lights on panel, and then by external measuring device if necessary and available. Many new batteries come uncharged, so that may be your main problem. Costco is a good source of reasonable cost quality batteries, but you may have to charge them and they may not install. Walmart probably good also. Both places allow returns. Follow all safety warnings on battery hookup, as hydrogen explosions are very rare, but very bad when happening, prevented by keeping sparks caused by connecting AWAY from top of battery!
