why when i turn my 07 Chevy colbalt off I have to get it jump started. The car dealer I bought it from said its the battery. and also whenever we are turning the st it acts like it wants to lose powe.
Your dealer is right, you need a new battery. Walmart, Autozone, or similar shops will sell it. Your battery has reached the end of its operating life, and it's not holding the charge anymore. For most cars, the battery will last about 3 years on average. After that, the battery will start to deteriorate, meaning the battery capacity will be reduced, especially during cold winter times. Signs of this deterioration are usually slow difficult starts. Every time you jump start the car, it's "borrowing" the power from another car's battery to kick start your car back to life. Unfortunately because your battery will not hold that charge after switching off for extended periods (e.g. A few hours or less), it would need another kick start from a donor battery again.
