Question about 2011 Buick Enclave

2 Answers

My car had sat for two days in a damp garage and would not turn over when I tried to start it. It finally did but acted sluggish. The power seemed diminished as well. Could that be crappy gas, damp garage, etc? I am taking it for service but wanted to share my experience. It has only 6800 miles on it.

No not the garage but if difficulty in cranking then i would say a battery problem ,as for sluggish when you did get it started then this could be the power being drained by the alternator to charge the battery ,Modern vehicles can have some monster alternators fitted of up to anything to 120 amps which is a lot of power to drain from the engine

Sluggish ignition start


I think your mistaken. Your battery will lose cranking power as the temp drops. Warm battery may work just fine, untill it gets below freezing temps then the cranking amps are so low its sluggish. Buy a high cranking amp battery and you will be good as gold mate!

Car tries to start but cant seem to turn over. battery seems fine


Get your battery tested, if your battery has failed internally sometimes jump starting doesn't help as the battery is pulling all the current away from your starter.

We have a 2002 Grand Cherokee that we have just bought. Dealer installed a brand new battery because of sluggish starts. In a week the battery is acting weak again, sometimes it starts fine, other times...


I was having the same issue with my 95 GMC. I replaced the battery and alternator. It would start fine at times, at other times it would be sluggish. I finally took the starter off and had it checked. Turns out the starter was bad. When it would get hot, it would act as though the battery was dead. Replaced the starter and it has not acted up again. Have the starter checked. Replace if bad.
