Reasons Your Car Won’t Start

If the vehicle won’t start, you most likely have an issue with the battery or your starting system. The battery may have been drained even though it’s healthy. In this case, you may have left a light on or another feature that drained the battery. A jump start is all you need to get on your way.

If the battery won’t hold a charge, it probably needs to be replaced. If that’s not the case, it may be the alternator that is failing and draining your battery. You’ll need to bring it in and have it tested. If this isn’t the case, it could be another part of the starting system. Wiring, the ignition, or other components can prevent your vehicle from starting.
