I have a 2010 Nissan Sentra. A couple of times, I have got in the car, turned the key, and nothing happens. Battery terminals are clean. I jiggled the cables and it started. The next time this happened, I did the same thing. I jiggled the cables again, and nothing. I did it again, and this time the engine cranked, but didn't start. I'm lost, help!
My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It sounds like you may have a connection problem with the battery cables, a ground connection problem or possibly faulty battery cables. I would suggest taking the battery cables to your nearest auto parts store to have them checked and tested. If they show more than 0.1 drop in volts when testing with a volt meter, they will likely need to be replaced.
