    No Power, battery 6 months old

    Changed battery 6 months ago and haven't had any issues until today. Came back from beach after a week and there is no power. Was able to release the hood and terminals are tight. Not able to jump the car with a sedan or SUV and tried two different jumper cables.

    Changed the battery thanks to the forum and took a few hours. Before taking the battery out again and bringing it to be tested, any suggestions?

    thanks

    You should never try and jump a battery in these cars. Best thing to do if your battery dies is to hook up a ctek and try to revive it that way. Before swapping out to a new battery, I would buy the charger and give that a shot.
