Car has been idle for several weeks and came to find it wasn’t starting up. Battery is 1.5 years old and first time it’s died on me.
Tried to jump start it by commecting leads for some 15 minutes but still wasn’t starting. At the end battery was showing 5 volts.
It’s definitely the battery because when we were charging with leads attached the electronics would come on but when disconnected they wouldn’t plus battery reads 5 volts.
since jump starting for 15 minutes didn’t work does that mean using a booster from local garage will not work too and so I need to try a battery charger instead or might a boaster do it?
