Had a conversation with Chris (muddyford) about my weak battery last Friday: http://www.JustAnswer.com/question/guest/258ffb76377146a38e905541d8dabce9 Now I have had problems again, sometimes it would start, sometimes not enough power and just make weak clicking sounds. Jumping always worked. I ran the car for almost 2 hours on the Freeway on Sunday and when I came back on Monday morning it almost didn't start, today it didn't with very little charge apparently so had to jump again. This afternoon, it would start, but all warning lights stayed on and car radio had no power. Restarting fixed this. What do you think is most likely the problem? Bad battery? Alternator? To remind you, it was a 2005 Scion xB, I think the battery was never changed actually. How much would a shop in xx likely charge me?
