i just finished completing another 30 min. charge to the dead battery with a running car and jumping cables. i'm now getting good lights and door locks perfectly after the jumping cables are removed. But still won't crank. I'm beginning to suspect there's more to the starting problem than the battery, since the battery seems to sustain the charge.
Should i buy a new battery tomorrow and test it out, or should i just send the car into the dealership? i've just had a type a service done on this car about 3 weeks ago. You'd think the master mechanics in the dealership will take the trouble to check if there's sufficient water inside the battery.
