I have an 03 Chev malibu. I just put a new battery in it. She won't start without a boost.runs fine afterwards.if I let her sit for a bit I will need a boost again..please help


New battery could be faulty or alternator not working.
If nothing happens when you turn the key,to check battery to determine its state of charge. Many starters won't do a thing unless there is at least 10 volts available from the battery. A low battery does not necessarily mean the battery is the problem, though. The battery may have been run down by prolonged cranking while trying to start the engine. Or, the battery's low state of charge may be the result of a charging system problem. Either way, the battery needs to be recharged and tested.If the battery is low, the next logical step might be to try starting the engine with another battery or a charger. If the engine cranks normally and roars to life, you can assume the problem was a dead battery, or a charging problem that allowed the battery to run down. If the battery accepts a charge and tests okay, checking the output of the charging system should help you identify any problems there.

The battery won't stay charged


Hi it is possible that you Alternator is faulty,if you have access to a VoltMeter ,check the battery voltage in the morning before you try to start it you should have around 12.7 volts for a charged battery if not fully charge your battery again and check the voltage with your car running you should have around 14 volts with the engine reving at 1500 revs.ifyou get around 12 volts then your lights are taking more power from the battery than the Alternator can replace.You could also get your local garage to Drop Test your battery to see if any of the Cells are faulty

1993 mbz 300e won't turn over, battery full charge and buzzing noise from relay area.


hi,

the first thing that I would check is to make sure your battery is fully charged or try and jump the battery using another car battery.
if still no go then I would say that your starter solenoid is bad.
while checking the solenoid/starter double check to make sure your block to body ground cable is secure.

hope this helps,

Car won't start security light blinks


If the security light is blinking, then the security system is DEFINATELY the reason why your car won't start. The actual cause of the problem is MOST LIKELY a defective ignition switch that is not sending the information from your key to the computer.

Try this:

FIRST try a different key if you have more than one for the vehicle. I have had cars towed into my shop simply because someone was trying to use a cheap duplicate key that was cut at the hardware store. These keys are fine for the doors and trunk. They are great to have around in case you lock your keys in your car. However, they do not have the electronics built into them to allow for engine starting.

If you are using the correct key and a second key also does not work. then...
1. set your parking brake (this will disable your daytime running lamps and conserve battery power.)
2. Connect a battery charger to the vehicle battery if you have one, or see if someone can connect to your battery with jumper cables.
3. Turn the ignition to the START position for about one second. Then release the key to the RUN position. DO NOT turn the ignition OFF.
4. Wait about 10 minutes until the security light quits flashing. Turn the key (without turning it off) to the START position again. The engine should start. If it does not, then you will have to get your car towed in for service.

HINT: you may want to try this a couple times to make sure you are doing it correctly before towing.

If it does start, it is recommended that you have your security system checked for fault codes. I have seen this many times, and it only gets worse and does it more often until this method no longer works to get it started.

While driving Infinity I35-the battery light and brake light came on. Then the car shut off and it would not come back on, replaced the battery but both lights remain on? What can this be?


This is the cause of a bad alternator that has stop working properly and not charging the battery anymore. So the vehicle might be running on battery until it drains it. If car won't start again, that means there is no more juice on the battery enough to start the car. This indication on the dashboard of these light coming on is a nice indication that Japanese vehicle companies have applied to give a hint that Alternator is not functioning properly anymore. Taking the Alternator is very easy and its only held by one or two bolts with battery wire connection attached to it. Taking it to a Alternator rebuilder to get it fix is the cheapest way than taking it to the dealer where as the rebuilder will charge around $40 were as the dealer will charge $100 + for replacement.

The battery may need to be replaced, the battery is not holding a charge or you didn't run car long enough. Try boosting again and let the car run for about 1/2 an hour to 1 hr. Then try to start the next day. If it doesn't start you will need a new battery. Even when you don't drive this vehicle especially in the winter time you should start this car and let it run for about 10 minutes once every week. Good Luck contact me if you need more help
