so is it that you can't start without charging the battery? the battery is becoming weak when the car sits, despite the battery being new?

do I have it right?

sometimes it will start if I leave it for a couple of hours, without giving it a boost. Ive had occasions where it will start 10x in a row, then it wont start, then it wont start right away unless i give it a boost.
Jaguar Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 6 months ago

can you please describe in a bit more detail what you mean by poofing noise?
