I left my car battery on while I was sitting in it listening to music, when I went to start my car, it wouldn't turn over. I tried to jump my car and made it about a mile before it died out

Asked by Sep 13, 2014 at 01:07 PM about the 2006 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried to jump start my car and it
drove about a mile before dying out
while it was on and in drive. Could
this simply be that I just drained the
battery and it won't hold a charge
now?? I'm concerned it may be the
starter.....

It could be that your alternator was on it's way out and by killing the battery you've made it work overtime. If the battery is over 4 years old replace it. Otherwise charge the battery on a charger and load test it. If it passes the load test check the alternator output. I suspect the alternator is fried. HTH. -Jim
