Car not starting

10

Asked by Jul 15, 2016 at 01:11 PM about the 2004 Acura TSX Sedan FWD with Navigation

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Left my key turned in car,drained battery, called
local mechanic shop to come give me a jump, they
came and hooked the cables up wrong and killed
all power to my car, nothing worked except for the
hazard lights, bought a 100/70 amp fuse in one
and fixed the no power issue, all electrical
components are now working, only problem is that
my car won't start, the engine turns over once or 3
times at max when I try to crank, fyi, it has a brand
new optima battery in it, and I'm in a hurry, I have a
rental car, had it for about 11 days, and each day it
burns a deeper hole in my pocket

i kept trying to crank it over and over,probably over 70 times in a row,and eventually my engine started turning over more and it cranked up,now it cranks every time,my guess is that my starter might be going out,thanks for the reply

You might also check alternator and starter. The best way to do is to Go to autozone or oreilley they will test it
