my coolant resivor was bone dry, would this shut my battery down and not allow my car to start until we added coolant?
I went to start my car and it wouldn't start it would just click repeatedly. When my husband was checking things out he noticed that my coolant resivor was bone dry so he added some water and then jumped my battery and it started right up. Just wondering if there is some kind of sensor that would shut the battery down so that my car wouldn't start until we added coolant.
The two have nothing in common. Go to the local auto parts store and get a new battery if it's 5 years or older. It won't hold a charge for long and you'll be stuck again. What is the voltage? 12.4 or higher is a good battery. Find the coolant leak by driving the car till it's warm, and pop the hood to see if you can hear or smell coolant leaking.
