Question about Chrysler Pacifica

2 Answers

My car was functioning fine, until the batter went dead after inadvertently leaving the lights on. After recharging the battery, as well as performing a jump start, the car does not start, in fact not even a turn over or any type of engine starting indication, such as selenoid clatter. Any ideas?

Try disconnecting the battery cables for about 5min. then re-connect them, and see if the car will start. Now I am assuming that the battery is now at a full charge, Right?

You recharged the battery but did you have it tested? Sounds like your battery has a dead cell condition. This leaves you with a battery with all the volts in the world, radio and lights come on, but that will not crank the motor because it holds no amperage. This condition will often interfere with jump starting. Sometimes you can get around this by connecting the jumper to the positive terminal and then connecting the negative to the engine block instead of the battery but that does not consistently work.

2010 G37 - battery was dead - jumped it off and drove it for twenty minutes. Next morning it wouldn't start and now it wont stop clicking (like a relay). Any suggestions?


if the battery goes dead or low it must be recharged with a charger, driving the car will not recharge it properly. The alternator is only meant to maintain the battery, not recharge it. Get the battery recharged and verified and then try again.

My expedition keeps dying on me the battery dies once i get it started though it works fine its when i leave it parked over night there is a new alternator on it cause the old one went out and the battery...


I'd run it by Autozone if this was the batter that was in it when the alatnator went out it may have cause the batter to get a bad cell, they will check it for free, Most batters have a 3 to 5 yr. warrenty. DONT tell thim your alatnitor went out if the battery showes bad this will void the warrenty just simpley say my batter has a bad cell....of corse the place you bought the batter will test it as well befor they give you or pro-rate your old battery good luck

I have a 99 camry the went dead and i tried to jump it the horn blows good the head lights comes on but when i turn the key it says nothing the dash lights doesnt come on its like its not getting any power


There could be several reasons for your problem:
  1. Check your connections for tightness and corrosion. A corroded battery cable/post will diminish the current going to the dead battery.
  2. Check jumper connections
  3. Dead battery; the worse off the battery is, the more time it will take to charge the battery sufficiently enough to start the car; a completely dead battery with bad cells will never recharge sufficiently enough to hold a charge and start the car on a regular basis
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Batt went dead /recharged now security light stays on when ing is


You need to reprogram the security system. Hook up a battery charger. Turn the key on, the security light should flash. Leave the key on until the light stops flahing.(11 minutes) Turn the key off for 20 sec. Turn the key on, do the same thing a second time, turn the key off. Turn the key on. Do this a third time. After the third 11 minutes and the light is off, Start the truck.
