Battery issue???

Asked by Feb 16, 2015 at 11:35 AM about the 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This morning the temps were below zero.  My car started up fine and drove well after I
let it warm up.  I heard a peculiar sound coming from right side rear passenger door as
if the seat belt were knocking against the door or something?? Weird.  After an hour
long meeting the car would turn over, but wouldn't start.  Eventually it quit.  I tried jump
starting the engine with jump cables and although the car turned over continuously it
still would not start.  I noticed the ETC light on among others on my dashboard as I
was trying to start the car.  Not sure if it always goes on or not?  My car always starts.
I am wondering if the subzero temperatures could affect my battery in one hour time or
whether I have another issue?

if your battery was dead or dying it would crack at subzero temps was there sufficient gas in the tank check with your nose don't trust the gauge in these kinds of surcumstances is the fuel filter clean and was it trying to fire while you where cranking it
