the new battery is dead and wont take a charge
My car has 111769 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
If the battery is dead and it is only 2 months old then return it for replacement. Once you install the battery you should have the charging system checked by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic. The charging system should charge at about 13.5 volts and 65 to 75 amps from the alternator. Replace alternator if it is not charging enough.
