I had a similar problem.  It was driving me crazy.  If car sat for more that 3-4 hours I would have a dead battery.  It turns out that this apparently is a relatively common problem with BMWs.  What was occurring is that the blower fan for the ac/heater was randomly turning on and off while the car sat.  If the car sat for more than a couple of hours, the fan was draining the battery.  It was about a $250 fix at the shop.

I parked my 07 cobalt ltz the battery drained and wont take a jump now it wont start or crank


First clean the battery posts, to much corrosion cause cause a no jump start condition. Sometimes a cell or two in the battery is dead. This is why you can't jump start the car. Replace the battery.

What does it mean if my car wont hold a charge if it sits for a few days if the battery is new?


Brand new battery failure that quickly would likely be bad connections at the battery, scrape clean the post connectors of any rust or corrosion. If the problem persists, the alternator would be the next step.

Have a 2001 dodge durango replaced battery and new alternator.... when you first start the car the alternator gage will jump up to about 12amp then will just drop down to wear it wont charge


I suggest that the problem is not in the alternators but in the battery . Dirty battery posts and terminals will do this so ensure that they are shiny clean and tight. Next have the battery load tested for a faulty cell or broken cell bridge.

Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.

!998 KiaSephia. Will not start have to jump it then when I turn it off it wont start or turn over. Whats wrong?


It prpbably needs new battery-it will get to the point where even a jump will not start it but you should have your battery charged and clean the battery posts and the clamps and make certain they are tight first before you bite the bullet and buy a new one.

My metro wont start at all with a new battery


I have had a similar problem which resulted from a worn starter motor. You say you put in a new battery not just charged the old one right? With my car, the engine would make a single click noise when i tried to start it. that was it. music played lights would go on but no engine. Check with your mechaninc if you think it might be the starter. I dont want you to buy a new one and realize your starter was not the problem

1999 chevy lumina with a new battery that will not turn over. AAA can jump it and it will start and run for ever until it is turned off then it will not start again. Jumping it from another car usually...


because aaa can jump start it and you can't sounds like maybe the battery cables are curroided (dirty)
in-between the battery post and the clamps, clean the battery terminals and charge your battery as a loose conection can run down even a new battery

Car starts with jump and drives but wont start by itself


well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)

2007 mercury milan V6 Car wont start. Jumped it


Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.
