Have you checked your battery post for corrosion build up?
give them a good cleaning, then give your wire leads that connect to the battery a good cleaning as well, wire brush, sandpaper, whatever you got to make them super clean so they can conduct that 12 volt current.

you might also want to follow those wires/cables/leads (whatever u wanna call them) ..and clean the other ends..or make sure they are not corroded..the ground wire especially.

clean them up real costs you nothing, and may solve your problem.

hope this helps

let me know

Bought new battery. morning vuka don't want to start. mornings I had to jump start it 0km still refuse to start on its own

Probably something draining the battery overnight. Interior light left on? The regulator in the alternator could be bad and keeping the ignition energized draining the battery. If your jump start it drive to work get off work and it starts after 8-9 hrs you have a system voltage leak some where. If nothing is left on overnight have the voltage regulator tested in the alternator.

Hi I bought a new battry and it showed green for a week now it does not show green but car starts must it show green every day

Generally the indicator should glow green for the life of the battery unless it has drained or failed.

If you generally drive extremely short distances (under 15 minutes per trip) you could be draining the battery whenever you drive. This is a common problem in city cars. Otherwise it's possible something is faulty in the charging circuit.

Why do i have to charge the batt. every two to three days

The simple answer is the alternator is not charging the battery, or you have something draining the battery when the engine is off.
Have you checked the alternator output with a meter ?

Car intermitantly will not start..make a click noise but not a click click noise it was jumped one day...seemed fine morning day would not neighbor jumped it said it might...

Check the battery first, if it is ok you probably have a bad starter. If the battery is drained, you need to charge and test the battery and alternator.
