I just can't remember the post but there is a solution posted with this same problem...

i'm trying to find it but i cant find it anymore...

there is a sequence to remember before replacing a battery.

try to remove the positive cable, turn the ignition on for a minute, put the positive cable on to the battery then turn off the ignition switch, then start and try it if it works.

i hope it was the procedure...

tnx for using fixya...

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,


The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

It sounds like your alternator is bad. East way to confirm, take it to local auto parts store (IE: Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE charging system test. Couple of thoughts; you have two new batteries and your poor alternator has to work twice as hard. After you put new batteries in, you've been running on straight battery power. Alternator normally runs all your electronics and recharges battery(s) but if Alt has gone "south" then you're on straight battery power.

well is the battery draining over the time its sitting?
could be a bad battery or alternator, and/or you might have something on the car constantly draining power from the battery.
best to have it looked at by a mechanic.
