My 2011 Chevy Traverse was parked in our driveway uphill. It wouldn't start. Just a few clicks and wouldn't turn over but the malfunction light was on. I tried it a couple times to no avail. I put it in neutral and rolled the car back down driveway to see if maybe it would help (even though I ju

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It locked up and then I couldn't get anything to work. Stuck in park. Steering wheel won't turn. Key stuck in ignition causing it to click repeatedly. We somehow got the key out by turning the headlights on and off and the ignition released the key.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Husband went to go get them to try it. But my battery light never came on and never showed any signs of being low
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I should at least be able to put in neutral and move the car. It won't budge.

again all symptoms point to a battery that is very weak or dead generallythe battery light will not pop on unless the alternator is failing

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
there is no way to get it into neutral to move it out of the way until its jumped?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
But battery gauge says 14...half way. How is that if it was so dead?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it's making a whirring sound under the hood

the 14 is the alternator charging voltage not the battery voltage i would have the charging system checked..
