Battery dead but not charging after jumpstart?
Hello, of course I don’t know about cars and you
got your stereotype right , but I’m in need of
Yesterday my car didn’t want to turn on right when
I was already 10 min late for one of my finals and
my Uber back helped me jumpstart the car. He
said “let it charge and then drive it”. I did not since
I thought it was on and it could run. Well my
dumbass learned the hard way that I guess you do
have to charge it. My battery is from the AAA and it
was placed on 5/17 but I don’t know if those are
good. First, how long should I let it charge and
how long should I drive it? And also, should I take
it to aurozone to have the battery checked?
Thank you so much for your help!
You probably have a dead or dying battery; you might have enough juice to light the lights, but not enough to turn the starter motor. Jump start the car properly; leave donor hooked up long enough to charge your battery, at least ten minutes. Or if using a battery charger, follow its directions. If your car starts, fine. If it does not start, replace your battery. After either of these, go to an auto parts store and have any codes read and have the battery, alternator, and entire charging system checked out.
Thank you! called father and he said I needed to leave it for at least 15 min and then drive it but my battery might be dying
