Car won't start. Used a jumper cable from another car. Started. Drove a few miles. Shut the engine off and tried to re-start. No go. What could possibly be wrong?
My car has 146000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
This suggests you may have a bad grounding issue or potentially a faulty alternator. As you may know, the alternator is what charges your car's battery when the car is running. When this is not working properly, your battery will have a tough time remaining charged.
I would recommend having an expert, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home to determine why your car does not hold a charge and suggest any necessary repairs.
