2008 C70 Won't start

All the lights come on and when I turn the key it seems that the battery goes dead and the lights go off. I tried jump starting it but it still didn't start. I also can hear the tubo trying to start but it also dies.

You can also follow the positive battery terminal to the starter and then look on top of it and there is a solenoid and a small red wire to it with a small nut.See if its loose and if so tighten it. Also check both of the battery post's terminals by removing them and cleaning them inside with a metal brush and also the battery post's with a small round brush they sell in any auto parts then place them back and just tighten slowly until you feel them not too tight so that they wont break the outside nut then start your car and see if this works!

The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

SOURCE: Battery is dead. It can be jumped, but won't

Battery is shot, buy a new one (possibly get some warranty credit if it is new enough). I just had a co worker ask me about the same problem today and the dealer replaced his battery in his Jeep. The new maintenance free batteries only last approximately 5 years and they don't give you a heads up like they use to in the old days. I have started cars in the morning and noticed that they start a little hard that day. The next time I try to start it, the battery is dead.

Back in the day, I think we had a little more warning because we had to crank the engines longer. With the electronic ignition and fuel injection the modern engines crank so easy, so we don't put a lot of strain on the batteries and when they go they go.

01 Xterra dead battery. Tried jump, when I turn key alarm goes off blocks starting. Fobs wont disable/unlock. Only gets power to anti-theft. *Alarm doesnt go off opening door only turning key to start


You could try disconnecting battery, leaving overnight and then inserting ignition key and switching on before reconnecting the battery.

It has sometimes worked for me but in reality it seems you probably have an alarm immobiliser fault you need specialist help with.

My 1997 Land Rover Discovery 1 will not start. When I insert the key and turn it to the third position, none of the dashboard lights come on and the radio doesn't work. Tried jump-starting the car but...


While the voltmeter reads 12 volts doesn't mean that the battery is good. Have a load test done on the battery as it may have a dead cell. Jumping a battery with a dead cell will not work as all the power from the jumper goes straight to the dead cell

2002 Mazda tribute won't start but can jump, car will shut off while driving


you mentioned new alternator and battery, but it seem that the alternator is not charging, when you install the new battery the car started and run and after hours of running specially if head light is on the car shuts down. this is an indication that the alternator is not charging. (factory defect) have it checked or return part to auto supply.
if alternator is good and you have the car jumped and run it will not shut down even if your battery is dead because the charge of the alternator is enough to power the electrical system of the car until you turn it off. this applies to all cars

Car wont start, ignition goes on


Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.

Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.

if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.


The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

1992 toyota pickup won't start and battery won't charge


Sounds like your battery is just too dead, has enough juice to light up the system for a minute but cranking drains it and if it wont charge then deff fried, you could try removing the battery and starting the car with cables to confirm the starter still works. If a bettery is too dead then when you are jumping it, it takes to much of the power just trying to get through the battery.

Turn key to start and nothing


Not if you left your headlights on all night and completely drained the battery. if it is dead, try to jump it, if you get some sort of power with the jumpers attached, go buy a new battery.

95 Pathfinder would not crank, jump no help, then started fine?!?


If the key is in the ignition and the door is open or ajar, the chime alert will sound, although the lights might be off. Ensure door jam switch is working properly. Also have your ignition switch check out.

Check your positive wire from battery to starter? and Check Ground wire also.

If you have an alarm that cuts off the starter, it might be acting up by failing to reset, so that you can start the truck.
