Car won't turn over!

1 Answer


Might be but I would charge the battery, clean all battery connections to in sure they are clean and tight. With battery fully charge will it crank and start? If so check voltage on battery. If alternator is working properly you should have somewhere around 14 volts at the battery while engine is running. If not have alternator tested.
