Q: Q: Car completely dead.

asked by on

My car is completely dead.

If your vehicle has sat for some time you may be able to get it started again by simply getting a jump start. If a jump start does not work you can try calling a professional to test your battery. If the battery is bad I would recommend replacing it. If the battery is good but just low on charge I would recommend taking your battery to your local auto parts store for a trickle charge which will bring the battery up to full operating voltage.
