Starting

Asked by Nov 10, 2011 at 05:48 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We started having a problem starting our car and
would have to jum it every morning.  Took it to a
mechanic and he said there is a voltage draw in
the radio.  So he took the fuse out and it worked
fine for a while.  Now we are jumping it every day
again.  If you jump it of a morning and drive it a
bit then it will stay charged until the next morning
then it has to be jumped.  Any thoughts?

the wires in the altenator may have melted causing the battery to not charge or you need an altenator that produces more amperage if u have any after market electrical parts in the car
