Is it worth replacing battery for this old 99 punto s?
I recently inherited an old punto that
hasn't been driven for about 5 years.
The battery's flat and there's a small
amount of rust around the battery
terminals.. I tried jump starting the car
without a battery , connecting the
cables directly to the terminals.. The
lights on the dashboard turned on, but
when I tried to start the engine , it
made a clicking noise and shut down.
I need to know if it is worth buying a
battery to test it out , or should I just
break the car?
I would try fresh fuel and battery to see if it would crank personally. If it runs you could have a cheap second hand car to keep or even sell.
