Sounds like you have a bad battery. Check the date on the battery, if it is original it is probably time to replace it. Often times the radio and lights will still work when the battery is low because they take less power than the starter. If the battery is less than about 4 years old you may be looking at a starter on its way out. But it sounds more likely that it is a bad battery.

You did not give the year and model, but generally I would start with the key switch. The switch controls everything you mentioned.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

Replace battery. The CCA or cold cranking amps can be too low while voltage remains normal. Most the time when this happens the battery only operates properly when cold.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.


You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherookee sometimes won't start


This could be something simple. Your starter draws far more power than anything except for the a/c clutch (not in play here) Since all accessories are functioning, it's likely that the battery terminals are oxidized. A high-draw item will actually break the connection temporarily. This condition will also change with humidity and temperature. Remove them and use a small wire brush or sandpaper to clean the battery posts and the inside of the connectors on the wires themselves. If you have done this and still have a problem, then you should start looking for other larger problems.
Good luck
