The battery died so I jumped it but it still won't start.

Customer Question
There's power now but that's...
The battery died so I jumped it but it still won't start. There's power now but that's it
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: I did, they are covered so it's hard to tell
JA: What is the model/year of your Buick?
Customer: 2006 rendezvous
JA: Are you fixing your Rendezvous yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing, just looking so far aside from jumping it
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so. Thanks!

HI,

Ok, does the engine turn over, or no noise or just a click when key is in crank position?

Is the security/antitheft light on?

Just one click. Yes the security light flashes but only when the key is in the off position

HI,

Ok, you need a voltmeter which is used for testing voltage at components, connectors and wiring. We need to see if there is 12v on the purple wire at the starter while the key is in the cranking position

Are they expensive? I'm a student and I just spent all my money on the vehicle that worked fine 2 days ago..
Buick Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 10 months ago

Hi,

You can get a cheap one for $20 at Walmart

Since fuses and relays are fine, there is no way to diagnose an electrical issue without a voltmeter
