Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have a 09 outlander and ounce in a while my car won't
start just makes a clicking noise and all the interior goes
out. I've jumped it a few times and it ended the problem
temparery but now it's happening again. My batter light
isn't on in the dash and I'm asuming the alternator is fine
because me car hasn't died while I was driving what could
be my issue?

Loose or Corroded battery terminal ... turn on headlights before cranking ... if they fail to come on or flicker then it's a loose battery connection , usually the + (red wire)

Right , make sure the connections are clean and snug , if the batt. has caps pop them off and take a look , don't use a lighter or flame to see , the level should be about an inch below the top , if it's cloudy or dry you might want to replace it as a preventive thing .

Please check on your battery water (if yours is a maintenance battery) and tighten both Live and Neutral connection. Apply a little grease on the connection too.

connection should be clean and dry , a little "grease" on the threads and you , or someone , may over tighten and strip the thread , a batt. that still has caps is probably over the hill and if you pull the caps obne cell may be caked/solidified
