1 Answer


If you put in a new battery recently and now it's dead, I'd first suspect a dying alternator that's not producing enough voltage to keep the battery charged. The battery gradually loses charge and fails to start the car. Jump start the car properly; leave donor hooked up long enough to charge your battery, at least ten minutes. If the car starts, the battery hasn't been ruined. Get alternator tested/replaced. Only other thing would be a parasitic electrical fault where a defective switch or a broken wire is causing the battery to drain; these are difficult to find.
