    Drove for about one week then was dead one morning. We replaced the battery and it ran one day and was dead again. Had the alternator checked and it was cranking OK.

It is most likely your alternator, Your alternator is responsible for charging your battery, Which if your battery is fine, is the likely cause of your issue, HOWEVER, Be sure to check your battery cables for damage, Make sure the clamps are tightly connected to your battery, If they have corrosion (White fluffy stuff) on them, Take them off and clean them (BLACK (Negative) First, Then take the RED (Positive) off and clean that too, Then put them back on in the reverse order.) with a stiff wire brush, Also be sure to clean the terminals on the battery.

I have a 1995 geo metro notice my dlr lights not working and the car wont star it wont even click or turn the motor all the fuses are fine and when turn the switch to on position engine light come on


head lights must come on, or the battery is dead.!!!
the head lights work key off. so that is first check, and first to fix.

when this happens you have a dead battery, (fuses good, and tested all fuse,in engine bay.
  1. the classic, jump start using jumper cables .
  2. charge the battery so it reads 12.6vdc rested
  3. try a known good battery in car, that works in another car.

easy, right?

What are the possible reasons my 97 geo metro won't turn over after running the battery dead, then replacing it with a brand new battery ?


blown fuse.
bad wiring
forgot to charge new battery up to 12.6vdc reseted.
the head lamps work , keys in pocket (by law) and
are #1 first thing to trouble shoot when dead (easiest)
so, got 12v at all under hood fuses? ????????
id bet not. and any $10 voltmeter can find this easy.
buy one. use it. and save a bundle....

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Battery wont jump start


possible but my money is on a bad battery. have a load test done on the battery. I suspect that the over heating problem is not completely fixed as water pumps will still pump water as long as they can be turned . Probably all that was done was to tighten the drive belt . Unless the pump seal was worn out and you were loosing coolant.. Clicking noise when trying to start is bad connection or dead battery.

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

My car wont start but has Power


DOES YOUR CAR CRANKS OR IS COMPLETELY DEAD ONLY LIGHTS? IF IT CRANKS AND DOESN'T ENGINE RUN THEN IT IS EITHER THE ALARM ( IMMOBILIZER )SYSTEM ACTIVATED,OR THE IGNITION KEY FAILURE. IF YOU HAVE A SPARE IGNITION KEY TRY AGAIN ( THE KEY TO BE THE ONE WITH CHIP INSIDE ).IF IT IS COMPLETELY DEAD THEN YOU NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF A QUALIFIED PERSON TO DIS ACTIVATE THE ALARM AND CHECK ALSO YOUR SMART KEY AS WELL .

2004 chrysler pacifica no power even after jump


check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

I had the car in storage for 35 days. Upon startup, battery was dead. I took the dead battery out(only 1 year old) and put in a good battery which started the car, while the car was running good I took out...


You recycle the old dead battery

Have no idea why you even put that back in

Common sense & your friend is correct

You don't disconnect anything on today's
vehicles, even with the key on

Put in a new battery,start the car, warm it up
& drive it for awhile & maybe you will get lucky
& it will complete some of the drive cycles & run some
monitors ,you know nothing about & it will be fine

If not, your mechanic friend should be about to stop
by with the bosses scan tool & help you out

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

if you removed the dome lightbulb then there is no longer a draw from the battery there but if the ashtray light light does not go out then over a period the battery will go dead or drained to the point to not the vehicle
