Most likely, your battery is dead or dying. If jump starting the mower gets you going, and you can keep going, you are usually getting enough return power from your charging system. I'd change the battery. Regards! --W/D--

98 izzu hombre 4.3 battery went dead after a jump it wont start how to fix


The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

I have a sterling diamond scooter. How can i use jump start to charge the battery? Is there any emergency portable charger to carry if i get stuck outside and there is no car or power.


It might be easier to carry a spare battery. I am not familiar with your unit. I do not understand how a jump start would work without an external power source.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

Jumpstart 1995 oldsmobile aurora


I'm not sure if the Aurora is a special type of car that requires a different way of jumping, but when u jump start most cars, you place the red end of the jumper cables on the positive/ red side of the battery and the black end on the negative. You want to make sure the jumper clamps are touching the metal part of the battery post (so if there's covers on the battery posts, move them so the cables have good connection. The same procedure is used on both cars. Be careful not to touch the end of the cables together, as doing so will make them spark if one end is connected to the running vehicle. Let your car charge a minute then try to start. If it starts, let it charge for 5-10 minutes and run/ drive your car after disconnecting to make sure the battery does not die the next time you shut it off. If it does not start after a few minutes of charging, adjust the clamps to make sure they have a good connection, wait 2-5 minutes longer & try to start your car again. *It is normal to hear the car that is jumping you idle more quietly when your car starts pulling juice from the charged battery. Also, remove jumper cables after charging, making sure not to touch the ends togther- as it will spark again. *it is not necessary to shut off the car that's jumping you before attatching the cables, or after charging. If your car still doesn't start after repeatedly adjusting cables and trying other cables to see if it is the cables not working, you may need a new battery or alternator. I would have the battery tested to see if you need a new battery before considerring the altinator.

Trying to start the car I get "instant draw-down" of the battery and the car won't start--the battery is fully charged


the battery may be fully charged but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have a weak cell, next time you go to start the engine remove all of the battery filler caps (if it has any) & get someone to look into the holes to see if they can see if any of the cells are bubbling,if any are the battery is faulty & needs to be replaced......hope this helps......cheers.
PS. don't get your eyes to close when looking into the holes of the battery,it might be safer to use a mirror.

My ford 500's alternator went out. we replaced it and the battery is new. why won't it take a jump and start?


Hi Jenny,

I'm assuming the battery was new before the alternator went out.

If the car was running off the battery until both died, the battery may no longer be able to hold a charge or hopefully it it taking the lions share of the jump amperage to charge itself.

When you jump the car, try the headlights. If they are dim (or off) you have a bad jump connection. Try reseating the cables.

If they are bright, let the battery have some time to charge. (With the other vehicle running).

If after a few minutes, you get nothing from the starter,comment back. We'll look into other areas.

Best of luck

My hyundai santa fey has just lost all electrics.Drove it fine to shop turned engine off. went to turn it back on nothing -no lights nothing from the battery even the key doesn`t work.tried jump start but...


i would start by checking the connections on the battery and having the battery tested, also why where you taking it to the shop?, if the connection are dirty a jump start wont work, they may look clean but loosen them and twist them on battery terminals to make good connection then tighten them ,and make sure battery is fully charged,

Forgot lights on. Trying to jump start - no success. Using a booster pack which I plugged in to charge all night.


When using a booster of the type you are make sure you have a good clean and tight connectio where you are hooking it to the battery. If you do not have a good connetion the jump will not work , because no current is going from booster to your car. If your battery is too dead a jump will not work either the battery would have to be pulled charged and checked. The battery may have to be replaced. If this is the original battery and the car is a 2005 the battery is about due for replacement.
