Car won't start after replacing battery

Car has been running great. Came out from work and it wouldn't start. Appears light may have been left on. Tried to jump and it cranks but won't turn over. Took out battery and it tested bad. Replaced with new one and it cranks but will not start. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

I need year--make--model? If it cranks good but won't start, check the basics. Have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, gasoline engine. If spark everywhere use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
Sometimes if battery voltage is lost, it may effect your security system, where applicable?

SOURCE: Engine will not start/adio does not work but int/ext lights ok

this is most likely the battery protection relay, this is part of the lighting control module (LCM/GEM), your dealer can test test it but the issue may have been related to the cold, this module controls almost everything except the engine and trans.

Right off i would say its ignition switch. If you got a test light ground it to the neg. post of battery and have someone turn the key to start position while you hold test light on small post on starter if it does not light test light than its ignition switch thats bad. If it lights you got defective starter. My guess its the starter switch. It should be under dash on steering colume.

SOURCE: 1989 vw jetta wont crank. replaced battery still wont start.

Ive got a Jetta 2 CSI and had the same trouble. I then discovered that my coldstart packed up, wich you cant even get at the agents anymore. So If you are in the Benoni area I can fix it for you for 'n reasonable price, and you won't have that trouble any longer. Mine is still starting by just touching the key. 0829484343

1988 lxi honda accord battery drains overnight


Just a couple problems I've had. dome light left on due to faulty door open switch, spot light charger or equipment left plugged or wired to battery, lately I thought I had a bad battery but I just need to clean the terminal connections. One more thing if your car is running you can pull the negative cable off the battery. If the car dies your alternator could be the problem. If you have a light in the trunk or under the hood you could pull the bulb out to make sure you don't have a faulty switch turning them on. These are kind of simple and that is the way I start out.

did they run a test on the alternator!! at battery when off should be at least 12.6 volts, less than 12 volts battery is bad. when running at battery voltage should be at least 14.1 to 14.7, thats if alternator is ok. if less than above replace alternator. if alt. is ok, could be a bad battery.
