Bad battery? Starter? Alternator?
Posted 27 January 2004 - 12:36 PM
I got in my car this morning to go to my folks place...I turned the key to start it and my alarm started going off but, it was sorta quiet and the car wouldn't start, all the dummy lights came on like usually but, the volts were reading low...So after a few more tries being unsucessful, I turned on my headlights then started the car....Fired right up! Hmmmm
So, I made it to my parents house with totally normal charge, turned the car off and had the same problem with starting.
I've had my car hooked up to the battery charger for about 2 hours and I just went out to try to start it but, to no avail. I can hear the starter engaging and trying to go but it feels like there's no juice in the battery.
Any questions, comments, answers?

When re-connecting, make sure the connections are tight.

Also, I seem to remember reading about ignition switches on older soobs doing some strange stuff.. but I would check all my cables first.

Of course, you want to rule out the battery being bad or corrosion on the cables first as stated before.
