Starting a motor & running lights are 2 very different voltage/amps requirements.

Battery on my truck would turn the engine over but couldn't get the engine to fire = battery stuffed for diesel usage.
Same battery in a v6 Mitsi starts it first time everytime

It's not going to fix itself is it.
:-(

So a jump might help!

jumper battery and see if it starts

sharee-if you have access to another car I have a jumper pack you could borrow.

sharee9, Jan 6, 2:52am
I do have jumper leads but no other car.
I'm just having lunch then will ring roadside rescue, guess I've paid for it might as well use it.
But thanks very much for the offer kazbanz!

That really depends on how old they are. Old enough to want to listen to the stereo, its their fault. too young to understand the music of today, their fault because they don't sit straight in car lol. My kids I used to wonder why sometimes the electric windows wouldn't work. I'd have them clapping/whistling, saying window up/window down, very amusing back then. Now I get told "well, you weren't meant to be having fun at our expense. those were the days.
