Q: Car not starting due to possible battery issues.

asked by on

Car won't start. I think it might be the battery and battery wires.

Many different problems, including the battery, can prevent a vehicle from starting. If the vehicle does not start and does not crank, suspect a problem with the charging/starting system. If you are uncertain as to the cause of your vehicle not starting, I suggest you take it to a trained professional. A qualified technician from YourMechanic can test all of the system components using dedicated equipment.
