if battery is bad you wont be able to jump it. take battery to a auto store they can test it for free

Thank you. But If the battery is completely dead how is the check engine light coming on?

its a light not a starter. a starter draws a lot more amps. prob only need 3-4 volts for a dim light in dash

might be a good battery. that's why a auto store can charge and test it to see if its good... then you need a voltmeter. if you have a voltmeter put it on battery now and if it's less that 11 volts it wont start. if the alternator wont charge it then eventually it will die. headlights turn signals and engine all require voltage and eventually will use it all up if alternator isn't recharging battery

Are you still having issues or found anything out? I have an 03 that does the same thing. Ran the codes and bcm has popped up several times. This problem is very aggravating. Ignition switch could also be a problem. That's a recall on mine.
