I installed a new battery and alternator yesterday. Now this morning, my car won't turn over. Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not? The battery passed the test. There's no leakage. Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? 2005 Honda Element Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Element yourself? What have you tried so far? I've replaced a bad alternator and battery and tested all the fuses. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? I believe there may be a current draw.
