My car will not start this morning and I tried jumping starting it off a friends car with no luck. I think it is the battery as my existing one was quite old and it was freezing overnights. Also when I first attempted to start I could hear what I assume is the starter at a medium-pace, after a couple more tries of the ignition the pace has slowed and slowed with what I assume is the battery draining. Now when I turn the key there is bearly a sound
Does this still sound like a dead battery? I thought the headlights would also be dead?
Solution: Breakdown engineer tested battery, "60% health" - had enough amps to power lights etc but not to start engine. Was able to jump start using a Power Pack but not another car. Battery was 9 years old, replaced and all good.
