Re: [DML] Starting problem...


Your battery is dead!  Have you charged the battery since it was drained? 
Not jump started, but charged?  If once you jump started the car the first 
time all you did was pull it into the garage, the alternator had no time to 
recharge the battery.  The best thing you could do now is test the voltage 
at the battery, see if it's less than 12V.  I'm sure it is.  Then if you 
don't already have one, buy a battery charger and charge the battery.  If it 
still won't hold a charge it may be time for a new battery.  All jump 
starting does is grab enough power from an auxiliary source (another car) to 
get the car going.  It does not charge the battery back up.  You either need 
to drive the car around for a while to let the alternator do its thing, or 
use a dedicated battery charger.  I'm sure your starter is fine, you're just 
not giving it enough power.

Good Luck,
