Customer Question
Left the lights on...

Left the lights on last night. battery died. when we tried to jump it, the alarm goes off. lights don't dim, and the car doesn't do anything except for the alarm blaring

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Chrysler Mechanic will know what to do. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

That's all I know

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If possible

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chrysler Mechanic should know about your Chrysler?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

No vehicle information was posted with the question but any Chrysler product is going to require the alarm be disarmed after the battery is reconnected or charged. Pressing the unlock button on a key fob is the easiest way, most older vehicles also had disarm switches in the doors and unlocking them manually with the key would disarm it.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

Thank you so much for your answer. My initial estimate was $325; I got it done for $100 - part and labor.
