2004 F350 super duty diesel when jumped it will start but batteries will not hold a charge will not start without a jump. Had batteries tested and tested alternator all good HELP PLEASE


If you are sure the batteries are charged up fully but you keep having issues with having to jump start I would double check the batteries after sitting for a while. Could be a problem that there is a short that is running the battery down enough not to work. Could also be your starter is pulling too much juice as if you put a boost with your battery hooked up you are using a lot more power than just your operating battery. Just a couple of ideas.

My 2005 civic clicks repeatedly when i turn the key my dash lights flicker but no turn over... i dont think its the battery because if that was it. nothing would happen. but are there any other solutions?


it could be a weak battery

it could be a worn starter thats drawing too much current

have the alternator tested as well, it may not be charging the battery properly, therefore you wont have enough amperage to crank the engine over

A battery can have juice to power the car, but not enough to get it running.

Engine just died while driving. now will not turn over. lights work.


The battery may have enough juice left over to make the lights work but not enough to turn the motor over. If the battery is discharged, you probably need a new alternator. When the alternator goes the car will run until the the battery doesn't have enough juice to fire the motor.
If the motor will turn over but just not fire, it's an electronic ignition problem.
If the battery has full power and the starter motor turns but the motor won't turn over, then you have a broken timing belt.

Car wont start but lights work and starter lights flash on and off


You likely have a dead battery of a bad starter. Does it click when you turn the key?
BATTERY: There may be enough juice to runs some lights but not enough to actuate the solenoid.
SOLENOID: This is a switch that controls the juice to the starter on your engine. It makes a click when it is first engaged. If it is not working correctly, your starter cannot get juice and won't engage.
STARTER: If the starter is too far gone to even make a revolution, then it is time to replace it.
Many auto parts stores will test batteries and starters for free, but the trick is getting there!
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

The car will not start


replace your battery. Even when a battery is dead it will still have enough juice to operate smal things like the horn and radio, but not enough juice to start the car. If the battery is dead you should still be able to jump start it and take it to autozone and they can check it along with the alternator at the same time.
