Hello and welcome to just answer. Matt seems to be off line at the moment, but I can help you if you wish. If you would rather wait for Matt, that is fine, and I will opt out of this. Let me knoiw,

anybody who can help is fine
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Ok, thanks. I am a technician at a Chrysler dealer and have seen this before. Your problems are caused by loose/poor battery cable connections, or an internal connection problem inside of the battery. Check clean and tighten the negative and positive battery cables. Check and tighten the cable at the under hood fuse box. If you still have this problem, then replace the battery. I am 99.9% sure that this will take care of it.

ok now the cable under the fuse box is that something i can fix it or should i take it to a mechanic shop
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

You can check it at least. If it feels good and tight, then that is not the problem. It will be the large red cable. If it is loose and moves, then let a shop take care of that for you. Just to be safe.

would the cable be under the car to see it? or running from the battery?
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

It runs from the battery, goes into the harness and then to the fuse box. You do not need to get under the car to see it, however you may need to pull it up to gain access to the main red cable. Copy and paste the link below into your browser's address bar and hit enter to see how it comes up.

ok now i just took some bubble wrap off from around the battery could that have been it?
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Hmmmm, I doubt it, however there should not be bubble wrap around the battery, so it is good that you removed it.

ok well im going to take it to a local auto parts store so i can get the battery checked and if need be replaced thank you very much
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
well apparently its the battery or the altenator..... any other ideas???
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Ok, then if the battery failed the test then of course replace it. Does not appear to be an alternator problem.

Thank you for the positive rating!
