Being the idiot that I am i was about to back up my drive way and for some STUPID reason i wasnt paying attention and i stalled my car, i tried starting it and it just cranked for a second so i tried again and nothing happened the radio didnt go on all the warning lights didnt go on nothing so i triend wiggling the battery and still nothing, then after like 5 mins i went to turn the key and it started fine i drove it up into my garage and let it idle for 5 mins cause i thought the alternator would re charge the battery or somthing like that. so yeah i turn of the car and 15 mins later i go to turn it back on and no radio no lights nothing the car is dead i try the battery and nothing. I was with on of my buddies and he has jump started alot of cars before so we tried mine and even with the boost it didnt start up and still no lights!!!

did you try to pop start the car?


turn your inginition to the on position hold the clutch in and roll the car... make sure its in first if you're going forward and reverse if you're going backward. when you start to get going let out the cluth real quick and you should hear a pop and push the clutch in right away. your car should be running after that... if not it could be a more serious problem:(

Get out the voltmeter and check yor battery voltage.

12.6 V or greater: 100% charged.
12.4-12.6 V: 75-100% charged.
12.2-12.4 V: 50-75% charged.
12.0-12.2 V: 25-50% charged.
11.7-12.0 V: 0-25% charged.

If you're getting under 50% charged that may be your problem. If you already know this information, sorry for re-stating it but it's a good place to start.
