Why car wont start after killing the battery twice?


When you run a battery down a few times, over a year or so,
then kill it twice, in a row, in a couple days,it has to be replaced

Ignition clicks but doesn't turn over


If you just replaced the battery then my guess is that you have a bad alternator. Your fresh battery could hold the charge for a couple days without being charged but now it's dead. Try charging the battery (via jumper cables or a battery charger). If the car starts up after the charge then you probably need a new alternator. You can verify this by checking the voltage across the battery after you start the car. The voltage should be more than 13.5 volts, if it's any less than the alternator isn't charging the battery. Good luck!

Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

You either have a bad starter or ignigtion switch. When you turn the key on does everything else come on? I would check the starter first if you have power to everything.

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

Before you change your alternator try to confirm that it is your problem. If I were you I would first get a battery charger and fully charge your battery, once fully charged try to start the car, If it starts let it run while monitoring your battery voltage, if the the voltage stays around 12-14 volts your alternator is good, however if the voltage slowly drops as the car runs then it is definatly your alternator which is not charging your battery. Although you stated you installed a battery with 10.57 volts and the next day it was at 2.34 which is not normal(unless you live in an extremely cold environment), you could also have a short in your system which is draining your battery.

Hope this helps
