Got a jump replaced the battery now it turns but wont start


please describe any conditions preceding the jump start. Also did you possibly connect the cables in reverse on first attempt. Sounds like it could be a bad computer.

Problems with chevy blazer


Is there a chance that there is a light staying on in the glove box or under hood? Unhook the baterry cable and wire a bulb between
battery and cable. If bulb lights then start taking fuses out to find the circut that is drawing the current.

94 saturn will not start, new battery, completly dead


I would check the maxi fuses (big ones) in the underhood fuse box first. If you find one blown and replacement fixes the problem,be sure to get the alternator checked for proper operation,if the cables
were reversed the alt. often is "wounded".

Truck Wont Start and Battery Runs Down.


get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight

It sounds to me as though you may have an alternator concern and when it is running all it using is the battery and will die when the battery runs down.I would charge the battery up and start the truck then using a digital volt meter and take a voltage reading at the battery with the lights on and the engine running it should read between 13.1 volts and 15 volts if it doesnt you probably need an alternator.
Let me know
