Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a similar problem. changed the battery 6 months ago and everything ran fine, now
it rained yesterday and the battery died. I jumped it and drove awhile then had to jump it
again. Still wont start. Turn key once and hear the bell sound then turn the second click
and then bell sounds faint then turn again and hear one click then nothing, no lights, no
warning, no nothing...just wont start...anyone have any ideas?

I suppose an easy place to start is to charge up the battery and then have it tested (for free) at any of the major parts stores, they can test the charging system as well. You might have a major parasitic draw on the battery as well, especially if it's dying during/after it rains. If you have a meter you can google for how to test for a parasitic drain.

Yes,just because the battery is six month,s old doe,s not mean it is good,have it load tested,and if battery is good,have the alternator checked.
