Sounds like your alternator is not charging and it is running straight off the battery until it is completely dead.It sits overnight and the battery builds itself back enough to jump start. Replace the alternator.


I have a new alternator and new every thing else under the hood and it still will not start unless I give it a day or sometimes two of rest's so wield.


Have it checked for a draw that is draining the battery. Car alarm, lights staying on in glove box or under hood etc.


Yes the battery is not dead the lights and everything still work when I turn the key the fuel pump kick in but other than that the car don't say a word lights come on radio comes on but it won't play.


I think it may be your starter or starter relay then.


I will try that will let you know thanks
