Having problems with your 2005 Kia Sportage ?
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.
Occasionally when a battery is older and it is been discharged to a low level it is difficult to jump, be sure the booster pack is fully charged hook it up to the battery but this time hook up the black cable to a engine bracket or metal part on the engine that looks like it will be a good solid ground connection, let the booster sit now for about 3 to 5 minutes then make sure all accessories including the interior light which comes on when the door is opened is off, then try starting, if the black or negative cable connection is not good enough use the negative terminal of the battery but keep in mind it is recommended to use a solid ground on an engine bracket to jump all vehicles.

My issue is that my car will not start. Now for more details: 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2 ltr. it has an AC Delco Battery. Tried starting it and the first two times it popped once each time. Then after that nothing at all. We tried jumping the car had lights for a little bit but when i went to start it nothing. I know the spark plugs are good those were replaced 2 months ago. Also tried charging the battery with a battery charger but from the get go it says its fully charged.

My 1991 6 cyl automatic Toyota sat for a year with the battery disconnected. I hooked up the battery, turned the key and did not get the engine to even cough. I charged and then tried jumping the battery and still nothing. The head lights come on, also when I turn the key the radio lights and dash board lights come on but the truck will not fire. I replaced the cylanoid, still nothing. What do I check next. Could it have anything to do with distributor or spark plugs? I changed the starter just

Help! I left my lights on in my 2003 VW Golf the other night. I went out the next day, turned off the lights, the car wouldn't start. We tried jump starting my car today and the lights (dash, interior and headlights) came back on, but the engine won't turn over. Then, after trying to jump start again, I tried to turn the key and there was a clicking noise and all of the lights starting flickering, but the engine still wouldn't turn over.

Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for ... 2003 Kia Spectra

94 Q45 I had problems with the release for pk brake. I released the pk brake but the light stayed on and i smell something burning but nothing is leaking. It had been sitting for 1 month and i started it up then there were a few more months that past and now it won't start. we have tried to jump it but it will not hold a charge or even start when it's charging. it tries to start but then it loses the charge as soon as we disconnect the cables.
The battery is more than likely completely drained. Because those vehicles have so many electronic features, both mechanically and otherwise, they consume a lot of juice. If the car is going to be sitting for more than a month you are supposed to rem ... 2004 Infiniti Q45
I have a Kia Sedona 2004 with 121,000 miles on it. Last week we accidentally drained the battery with a door light left on overnight. The following day I tried to charge it up by running the engine for a few hours with the air con off. Battery held the charge for a few hours but then died and required a jump start. We replaced the battery and it starts just fine but since the time we tried to charge the battery up the air con will not turn on. It blows air but the green LED on the air con an

The Jeep has set for about 6 months. A week ago: battery dead, jumped it but would not start. I replaced the coil, jumped it and it started instantly and ran better than it has in years. Yesterday, I jumped it and it started immediately again. I ran it for 2 hours trying to charge the battery. After 2 hours I turned it off and restarted it using only the marginal battery, started right up. About 3 hours later when I tried to start it the dash light came on but no cranking and something jus

2001 Pontiac Bonneville. Service engine soon light stays on. Went to Auto Zone and had them check out why the service light stays on, does not flash. They suggested to disconnect the battery, replaced fuel filler cap, had a misfire on #5 cylinder (replaced coil pack for 2 and 5), replaced plugs and wires. Haven't driven on the road yet. Let idle and rev'd up. Light is still on. How can I investigate further what the problem is. Can I jump some plug to clear the codes or read them at home without

I have a red battery light on in my 84 crx. The car hadn't been driven in a while and I had to jump start it. After driving it for a while I was able to restart it so I was assuming it was receiving a charge. Then..... a little while later while driving the red batt +/- light flashed at me and then came on steady. I was able to drive to where I store the car but after arriving I tried to start it again and the batt was too low. I'm assuming the light means no/low charge or bad voltage. If thats

I have a 2003 envoy xl. When I turn the key, the lights come on, gages work, everything is good til I try to start the vehicle. Most of the dash lights quit working and there is no click or anything from the starter. Releasing the key brings back all the dash lights. I tried jumping the vehicle, didn't work, put a battery charger on it over night, didn't work. My wife needs the vehicle for her job. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe solenoid or ignition switch.

I noticed my truck didnt want to start like it had a weak battery. I drove it anyway and first my abs light came on, then I started losing all my accessories like radio power windows, etc. I got towed home after truck quit running. I charged the batteries up last night, truck runs but still no gauges, glow plug light doesnt work, radio doesnt work, and I still have not changed the alternator. I took it to auto zone and had it checked they said it was not charging my batteries, but if I do change
