Q: Car wont start and electronics acting up

asked by on

Car will not start unless I jump start it and I just bought a new battery. Radio flickers,windows dont roll down,and heat/air go and off and i cant control it.

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

As long as no water has gotten into the car, sight unseen I would suggest checking for loose connections. Positive and negative battery cables, not just at the battery. Check the other ends - where the positive cable connects to the starter etc, and the negative cable as it connects to the engine and chassis to ground.
