My 1989 Deville's battery died in the driveway after several weeks of disuse. I replaced the battery, but it will not start. I replaced the battery again, but it still will not start. The headlights blink like hazard lights for a few seconds when I try to start it. Further, I've tried to jump start it, but to no avail. I'm told this might be the anti-theft system doing its job well, but it's very annoying and I don't want to pay to have the car towed to a dealer or mechanic. Please help. Thanks.

2006 Beetle with 32000 miles. Had dead battery a week ago. Took it to shop and replaced the battery, test of starting components showed no problems. Today car wouldn't start and it appeared to again be a dead battery. No power to lights, radio, etc. Hooked up jumper cables and everything came on but car still would not start. Cranked briefly then just clicked, engine wouldn't turn over. I'm concerned that this is going to turn into a major repair and want your opinion before towing it to

My 1996 dodge neon wouldn't start...mechanic told me it was the battery...replaced battery still after sitting for too long won't start took it to another mechanc...not the alternator. he said that a wire somewhere was not turning off something in the car (he suspects its the interior light) says very expensive 90.00 bucks an hour to figure out what wire it is? He has taken out the fuse so radio/interior lights don't work...says its a cheap fix.. Don't want cheap fix want it to just be fixed. Wh

Yesterday, my !996 Audi A6 would not start. We jumped the battery and I got about 1/2 mile down the road when I broke down. We had the battery tested and there was a bad cell. So, we replaced the battery and the car starts but the battery light and brake light are still on. How do I know if it might be the alternator instead? Please help as I DO NOT want to be stranded again!!!!
The only way to be sure is to go to a garage and have an alternator output test performed, this will probably cost you around 30 - 40 dollars, and will confirm whether or not there are any issues. good luck! ... 1996 Audi A6

With what you say I would be checking the current to the starter when you turn the key to start. That will tell you if it is ignition switch or not. If the switch is ok pull the starter motor and have it tested for faulty armature. ... Cars & Trucks

2001 Mits eclipse. I just recently had the timing belt, balancing shaft belt, and barrings replaced. I got my car back, and two days later, under 200 miles, my car dies. The battery is good, and my car acts like it wants to turn over to start, but won't. I was driving on the highway and my car just completely died on me. The lights, radio, etc are working. The belts are still good.... Any ideas of what this could possibly be?

I have a 94 cadillac deville. Recently my car wouldnt start. I figured it was the battery. I replaced this and the car did start. However the car will not turn over again. I then figured my alternator was the problem so i got the battery fully charged so I could drive it to have a diagnostic done. The car still wouldnt start. The car is still trying to turn over and is clicking, but I am not sure what it is any advice?
The "clicking" noise may be the solenoid on top of the starter mot engaging. Are all connections to battery and solenoid tight? Hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks. ... 1994 Cadillac DeVille

I just had my battery replaced and now the car starts fine but won't stay running. It wants to idle at 400rpm which is way to low. Before the battery change it was idling at 6-800rpm. How do I fix?
