Chances are, it's one of two things... Either your battery is bad or you have a dead short, causing the battery to drain. Most auto parts stores, will check your battery for free. I'd say that's the best place to start. Good luck!

How do i get my car running again it broke down i got a jump made it home and next day wont start no dash lights radio it doesnt do anything what is wrong ?

Give the battery a boost. If the car starts and stays running, chances are the alternator is ok. If the vehicle will not stay running, once boosted, there will be a charging system problem. Possible alternator. If the battery is more than 5 years old, it can also cause problems as the life expectancy of a battery is 5 yrs. Very doubtful you have a starter issue. I would bet on a battery or alternator/wiring issue

1996 nissan primera battery keep running down

When the car is not running, something is consuming more electrical power than normal to run the battery down. Another problem could be that the battery is more than 5 or 6 years old and it is at the end of its useful life.

Cherokee will not start until i hold down on the gas as soon as i take foot off it dies immediatly

Might have to reset the codes on the computer. Take the + battery cable off the battery and reconnect it afer 5 minutes. Next try to start the engine without holding the gas petal down, it should start and run rought till the computer resets itself. If engine stops, restart the engine and hold the gas petal down and give it enought gas so it will run smooth, it may take 5 minutes or so for it to smooth out and run at idle speed. If this did not fix the problem, check for a vaccum hose that may be off some where on the engine

I have bmw 5x 2005 battery drain in every night

Have your battery load tested. Your battery needs to have adequate voltage to run all computer/comp stuff. If it is weak it will run down overnight.

How long can you let a new corvette sit before the battery runs down

With a good quality new battery it should be fine for one year or so, type of battery is important also, conventional car batteries tend to lose around 5% of their power each month or so.

Electrical system shut down like battery was not charging, replaced alternator. Turn on headlights and battery still runs down in 5 miles. Lose lights completely. Where do I look next?

I would check my wiring harness for faulty connections and possibly burnt wires. Also trace the wires from your alternator to the battery. check them over. The battery may need to be replaced. If you let it run down alot and kept jumping it.
