Temperature here is about -22F and it’s been this cold for about a week. I had to jump start my car yesterday and it’s dead again today. When I crank the engine, it makes the ‘click, click’ sound but doesn’t start. (I drove around for about 30mins after the jump start.)
Headlight, other lights and radio can be turned on. So I guess the battery is not totally dead but not enough to start the engine. Another problem is “check engine” sign is showing on my dashboard. (constantly on, not blinking).
I guess the battery is about 2 years old and the car is 2007 Chrysler Sebring. Only the battery terminal for the jump start is in the engine compartment (under the hood). The battery itself is behind the left front fender near the wheel. I don’t know much about the car and it would be very tough to remove the battery and send it to Autozone or other service center. And to find a friend for another jump start is very difficult at this time now.
So is there any other solution for my problem? Do I need to replace the battery now? Any suggestion?
