Q: Car does not start even with jumper from another car - 2011 Kia Sorento

asked by on

car does not start even with jumper from other car

My car has 89000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

In rare instances, if a battery has what we refer to as an "internal dead short", the battery condition may not allow even a jump start to get the vehicle started. Try replacing the battery with a new "known-to be-good" battery and attempt to start the vehicle. If this does not resolve the issue, have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the no start condition and suggest any needed repairs.
