Car won't start.

Asked by Jun 20, 2012 at 05:08 AM about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had to get my car jumped today.  When I tried to start it after getting home, I tried to start it again and it wouldn't
turn over.  So, I went and got a new battery.  Once we installed it (hopefully correctly), there was no power
whatsoever.  At least before the new battery, there was a little juice.  Any idea what the problem is?

Check voltage of the new battery, I have gotten bad batterys from parts stores in the past that had the same voltage as a rock or a cup of soup.
