I recently noticed that my car had the issue starting without giving it a boost. It has original battery and has 155k on it.
Over the course of 2 weeks I realized below two things which helps car start without much issue (sometimes I've to try 2-3 times but no need to give boost):
- Pressing accelerator 25% and starting car works for some reason.
- I need to turn off Radio and AC before turning off the car for the car to start properly next time. This helps battery from dying for some reason when I want to start the car next time or maybe battery has enough power to start the engine only and it doesn't have to work to start AC and Radio?
I went to 2 different mechanics and both of them said different things.
- One said it's a starter issue and maybe battery needs to be replaced as well.
- Other mechanic said the battery is little weak but it is still fine, no starter issues and seems like some kind of electrical issue.
Did anyone face the similar issue or any insight if it is battery, starter or alternator based on the issues described here?
