Ok, good... when you don't understand something I have said, it's important to stop me and ask.
No, at the moment I'm not sure what the cause is. That's why I've asked a question. I think its possible that there may be an issue with battery connections. I NNED YOU TO ANSWER MY QUESTION, OK? Does it start now with a boost?
Your previous reply seemed to me to be telling me that it starts RELIABLY, EVERY TIME, WITH A BOOST. IS this the case? Or IS STARTING WITH A BOOST HIT AND MISS AS WELL. I need to understand this before I make any other suggestions.
If it still CONSISTENLY STARTS WITH a BOOST, but doen't start on its own, there appears to be something wrong with the connections at the battery. If you had access to digital meter, I could check this with you, but I understand that you don't have one of those.
Your answers to my questions will allow me to try to identify the correct approach to be taken to try to solve your problem or to answer your question.
Our success depends on your ability to explain to me what you think your problem is and my ability to understand your explanation.
It's my responsibility to try to give you suggestions in "clear language" that you can use to repair your car or to explain to your repair shop what you want done. Let me know if you need a copy of this post to forward to your repair shop. I can provide an attachment to this message that you can download and print or email to your repair shop.
It's important not to leave details out, even if they seem unrelated. Please try to answer any questions I give you as completely as possible and ask me to explain further if you don't understand what I'm asking. As peculiar as some of my questions may seem, I assure you that there is always a reason for my asking.
In many cases my ability to help IS EXTREMELY LIMITED due to the complexity of the system involved and/or the availability of test equipment at your end. I try EXTREMELY hard to come up with suggestions and tests that will get around these issues. While I may not always be able to come up with a fix, I guarantee that I will provide you with background information on the situation you are encountering so that you can better understand and communicate your problem to a repair facility.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.
