Q: Car won't start.

asked by on

Truck won't start even though it has a brand new battery.

It is possible that you may have a bad battery cable or a faulty starter motor. If either of these components has broken down your vehicle will not start even with a strong battery. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to diagnose your starting system so the faulty component can be replaced.
