    On 2/2/2021 I stopped to get gas and my car would not turn on and all the lights on the dash were out. I jump started the car and went home and parked and tried to turn it back on it was the same thing. Few hours later I saw the lights were on. I went to look and my car was running. I turned it of and turned it back on again no issues. From 2/2/2021 till today the ran fine. No indication of bad battery. Today I drove to work and turned the car off and I noticed the lights were dim. I tried to start it, nothing. What do you think is wrong with my car?

    The battery. Plus once you discharge it you really need to fully charge it. Not driving every day in the cold is also a factor. Get free load test at an auto supply to determine if you need a new 12v battery.

    I don't know the age of the 12V battery, but I got it replaces yesterday. So far it's working good.
