    I am inclined to believe it is the last thing--something that is staying on all night causing my battery to drain. How can I look for those kinds of things?

Hi, from your comment, there are 3 things that can cause this, loose battery post connection, weak battery or something in electric circuit that stays on after car is off and drains battery, like underhood light, dome or truck light. What you can do is when you park the car, unhook battery cable, make sure battery is well charged, hook it up next day if car starts, it's something that drains battery in car. If it doesn't start, battery needs replacing.

2004 dodge neon will not turn over


have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables

My 2004 430 Lexus ran fine yesterday, but did not start this morning. minor clicking noise. New Battery???


Hello! Clicking noise is always dead battery. Get a jump, remove the +Positive cable while car running. If it shuts off then it is the alternator.If it runs smoothly it is the battery. If it runs rough look at the voltage regulator or wire connector integrity.

Replace the battery first! That acid will corrode everything it touches. Once the battery is replaced, you can test if the alternator is working properly.

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and
