Is the battery good and fully charged? Have you checked main fuses under the hood? Does the dash light up?

When I started the car today the radio would not turn on at all, but the car started so we disconnected the battery and reconnected and the key got stuck! The radio, lights, everything worked, but the windows and locks did not work and car would not turn over at all. I am not sure what to do or where to start.

The key was not on when you disconnected the battery and hooked it back up? Did you try to jump start it? Also, has the battery been charged and tested? Are the battery cables clean and tight?

Reset security system if no manual look online. Disconnecting battery engages it.

The radio wouldn't work so we disconnected the battery. The car won't turn over at all and the screen reads service vehicle soon. There's no security light on. Windows and locks don't work either

My car will not start, I got a double jump last night and made it home but once I arrived there and turned my car off, that was it. I tried to restart it and nothing at all, all the lights and radio and everything are coming on but it like there is no juice. I also have an electrical issue with my high beam lights but I don't see that making my car not start, plus I am able to unplug the high beams therefore its not draining. My boyfriend works on cars and before I turned it off it was making an awful awful sound and it says it sounds like the inside of the alternator is tore up and needs to be replaced. I am just curious what it could be that is causing this issue?

The noise could be the alternator or a belt that is loose. Is it a screaching sound? Is the battery light staying on when the engine is running?

The battery light is not coming on at all and we got the starter checked and its not the starter either. It's been a few days and the lights and things are still coming on. My boyfriend even tried his brand new battery. And still nothing at all.

First, sorry for taking so long to get back with you. It's that time of the year. Anyway, the starter could check good even if it isn't. What needs to be done is the following:

When it doesn't start:

Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. You should have 12v when it is in the start position. If you do, replace the starter. If you don't, check the starter relay under the hood in the relay box (power distribution box.

Let me know what you find.

Try this. Disconnect the battery. Connect the two battery cables together to drain the capacitors in the system and clear any learned behavior. Reconnect the cables and see if anything has changed.

When starting the car, everything on the dash lights up, but then goes dim. It took getting a jump to get the car to start. I am not sure if it is the battery or the electrical system. Once I got the car home I turned the car off, and tried to restart it and it did the exact same thing. It took another jump to start the car. I don't know what it could be.
