Q: Q: Car not starting, even with jumpstart

asked by on

My car will not start, even after I jumpstart it. The battery was replaced within the last year.

Hello. I strongly suggest checking the starter, alternator and even the new battery to make sure that they are all in working order. Testing those three will give you a better perception of why it’s not starting. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose your starting problems and replace any failing parts.
