The fact is that dust and dirt that can create almost invisible electrical conductor, providing the loss of energy. Frequent short drives during which the battery fails to restore enough, may be fatal.

  6. Try to start the car with the discharged battery. If you cannot start it immediately, turn on the engine of car with full car battery, so that this battery does not drain. Again try to start the car with the discharged battery.
  7.  When you finally start the engine of your car, add a little gas and recharge an empty battery for a few minutes. Remove the negative (-) cable from the engine block or body, and is half of the booster battery. Extension cords are removed in reverse order.
