Asked by Mar 28, 2014 at 08:25 PM about the 1999 Toyota Celica GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when AAA came to jump the car, battery wouldn't charge, and alarm goes off. This alarm was an aftermarket alarm, and I have no documentation on it, and the alarm key came part, and I can't use it. The driver side door was left open a bit since the seatbelt had fallen out. I didn't drive it for about a day and a half. Any ideas as to what I can do? Still won't start, and I don't have anyone who can try to jump the battery. Could it be a fuse needs replacing? Any help would be appreciated.It's a '99 CelicaGT, and runs like a top usually.

Remove both battery cables and touch them together for about a minute and probably get a new battery...good luck
