Q: Q: Battery is dead

asked by on

My battery is dead. My car was making a weird noise before it died.

It is possible that the weird noise you heard was either the serpentine belt coming apart, or the alternator failing. Either way, I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic, so they can come to your location and properly diagnose your dead battery issue.
