the battery is good, that has been checked. It only starts when we jump it and then it won't start again unless you jump it again. Runs ok after it is started. I have heard all sorts of horror stories about this problem, anything from clutch safety sensor to 02 sensors and more that I have no clue what they are. Please help!
I understand how agravating this can be. But I would like you to perform key off battery drain test.
The most effective way of checking that codition is to use an ammeter in series with the negative battery cable and the negative battery post.
Make sure the ignition switch is in the off position at all the time during the test. All courtesy and accessory lights must be off.
If an excessive drain is displayed, remove the fuses from the fuse block one at the time.
When the specific fuse powering the circuit with the drain is removed, the high voltage reading will stabilize to a normal reading.
Or if there is no drain at all,
let me know when you come to this point.
