I have a 1999 Volkswagen beetle. Key was left in the ignition for 3days. Lights will come on in the inside. but will not turn over, even after trying to jump it off.


try some proper jump leads and not then cheap chinese things ,you need cables with a copper inside the diameter of your ring finger and double connectd to each side of the clip before you can even think of trying to jump a engine ,these cheap cables are only for charging one vehicle to another not passing 200 amps through

I would say that you need to replace the alternator. The car was running on the batteries power. When you drove the car, it ran the battery completely dead.

Sounds like a battery to me. The cold doesnt drain the battery it just makes it more difficult to produce enough energy to crank the car. If the battery is weak already, the cold just makes it worse. Replace it and move on!

I think you're trying to breathe life into a dead horse. Take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts house. Ask them to test the battery. They'll usually do it for no charge.

Whenever a battery goes dead, it damages the battery but building up sulfides in the bottom of the case. Also. a dead battery will freeze forcing the plates on the inside to come into contact with each other. When this happens, the battery is shorted internally. You jump start the bike and the bike will run off the alternator but the battery will not accept a charge. If the battery is over two years old, it probably needs replacing anyway. Motorcycle batteries don't last like car batteries. The vibration is the culprit.
