Hi there. I'm having some problems with my aviator. I just bought it private and it seems to be fine when I looked at it. Then I got it home and the next day I cleaned the inside and then wanted to go into town but it wouldn't start. I turn the keys and all it does is a clicking noise. So I boosted it and it runs fine until I shut it of again and leave it for about 20 min then it does the same thing. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the battery? I thought it could be the alternator but that would mean as soon as I boost it and take the cables off it would slowly die on me again which is not the case. Please help me before I spend more money on a mechanic.

Check battery for condition including load test, most places do for free. Try resetting security system. If you get a new battery you will probably have to reset security again.

Thanks so much I did take it to get a load test done and battery is fine. But the connections were loose so I cleaned them and put them back on tight. Now it works great. Thanks for your help.
