my 04 won't start w/o a jump NEW
by: Chris

I installed a rear camera in the vet and it worked but it drained the battery. I undid the install but battery won't hold a charge now. I can't remember details of your problem, but do you think something is draining your battery?

won't start unless battery jumped.

Test starter relay in starter circuit. Or just replace it. About $15.

Depending on where you are connecting the battery jumper cables might help you determine what battery terminal or cables are bad. The screw in posts of the battery are a very common failure point. Check the ground on the chassis also.
