Cadillac CTS 2006 - new battery - it starts when jumped but does not start again without jumping


Asked by Jun 04, 2016 at 08:29 AM about the 2006 Cadillac CTS 3.6L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

AAA replaced my battery. It starts after jumping and runs well. But if the engine is stopped, it wont start again without jumping. AAA said that somewhere it is draining the battery down.

1 Answer


If it is not starting because the new battery is running down on juice, then you need to have it checked for a parasitic draw on the battery when everything is shut off.
