Start your car and while it's running remove the negative battery cable. If the car dies, the alternator has gone bad. If it stays running, check the big red wire at the back of the alternator and make sure there is no break in it before it gets back to the battery. Do a continuity test to determine this.

Would a dead battery stop your key from turning on in a 2003 gmc envoy


Sounds like a flat battery. Just enough to power your lights but not enough to power the starter motor. Try recharging the battery.and check battery connections are good.

My bmw 320i 05 model wont start (no sound) and there is no dead battery sign on the dash board


If your battery is dead enough, even the dead battery indicator won't light. Take the battery to an autoparts store for a bench test/charge first before trying anything else.

Car wan't start


Hi there:It sure sounds like a dead or weak battery or problem with connections at battery or starter contacts. Check all connections and make sure there is no corrosion built up at battery terminals. Charge battery or try jumping.
If even dont work, check starter, starter solenoid or ignition switch.
Hope this helps.

MY CAR WONT START HAVE CHARGED THE BATTERY HEARD CLICKING WEN FIRST TRYED TO START IT BUT NOW WEN I GO TO START IT DONT HEAR CLICKING AN DONT HAVE LIGHTS ON THE DASH


Just because you charged the battery doesn't mean it held a charge or is capable of starting the car. To me it sounds like a dead battery or a bad cable. do you have a meter to check the voltage of the battery, if it is below 12 volt you are going to have trouble starting the car. The clicking is a sign of a weak battery or bad starter selenoid, no lights tell me a dead battery or like I said bad cable. Check all the cables from the battery to the starter and ground, look for looseness or corrosion.

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

2006 passat will not start, clicking sound when starting


Check the connections at the battery and make sure they are clean and tight, if it still doesn't start, have the battery charged. After you get it going, it would be a good idea to have the battery and alternator checked, to see if the alternator is charging and the battery doesn't have a weak or dead cell in it.

Dead battery even after 12 hours of charging?


Sounds like battery is fine, or at least o.k. , but there is a problem with the starting system. If you put headlights on, then have someone try to start it while you watch headlights, and they don't dim way down, then battery if o.k. for now. Do you know what killed the battery originally, was it just from sitting for a while & not being used? Listen & locate the clicking noise if you can, it sounds like relay or solenoid. You can try a boost & see if that may help. If it's automatic, move shifter through all gears, then try. If standard, make sure clutch in all the way . Let me know what happens.

My 2005 nissan maxima did not want to start. all the lights inside the car came on and when i tried to start the car it had a tapping/clicking noise and it did not start.


sounds to me like your battery is dead. put cables on it and see if you can jump it off a different car, but it sound like your battery is dead.
