Re: Car does not start
Make sure the Battery terminals are tight and clean. A battery on the way out can cause the car to die, even with a good alternator. If the battery looks aged or if you know the age and it's 4 or more years old it may be time for a new one. Don't cheap out and buy a group size 58, get the group size 65 battery. 650-700 CCA is sufficient. Get a Digital Multimeter and read the battery voltage with the car off. Should be around 12.6V. With the car running it should be 13.8-14.6V.
