Car Battery Won’t Hold a Charge? Do This Before Buying a new Battery or Alternator
If your car battery won’t hold a charge, is completely dead or starts with a jump, but then won’t start again… This article is for you.
The goal of this article is to show you how to revive a dead car battery, before having to purchase a brand new expensive battery or alternator.
If you have already tried to jump your car and it still won’t hold a charge, then move down to solution 2. If you have not yet tried to jump your car with jumper cables I recommend you try this before anything else as this could be the solution to your problem.
This is a likely solution to your problem if you left your lights on overnight and is the easiest solution. Once your car is jumped it shouldn’t die again.

If you tried jumping your car already and it either won’t start at all, or starts once but not again try this solution before resorting to buying a new battery or alternator.
This solution involves reconditioning your battery, and it’s much easier than your might think. No experience working with cars or batteries is required for this solution.

Battery reconditioning tends to work more often than not so I highly recommend trying this before buying a new battery or alternator.
If you have tried the previous two solutions and your battery is still dead it’s highly likely that your alternator is the problem.
But before going out and buying an alternator you should call AAA or your local mechanic and ask them to diagnose the problem just to be sure.
Your last resort should be calling AAA or a local mechanic for their services if the previous two solutions don’t work.
I hope this article helped and best of luck with your battery!
