Is my battery bad?

Asked by Mar 22, 2015 at 06:55 PM about the 2007 Kia Rio LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Went and got my rotors replaced. The next day my car died. Then my hood was stuck
shut. Got it open. Jumped my car and it was fine. Next day my car doesn't start but
this time I notice battery corrison. I went and got a new battery. I placed it inside.
Upon putting my keys in the car, the car goes nuts. My windshield wipers start going,
my break light comes on and I don't hear the engine turn when I try to start it. Any
pointers? This is for a 2007 Kia rio
