I recentley replaced my battery thinking it was bad.I drove about 70 miles then all the tachs went hay wire then the car died.I took the alternator off and had it tested.It turned out it was bad.I can jumpstart the car from the positive terminal under the hood.It wont jumpstart from the battery in the trunk.Do you think I have a faulty ignition switch?
My battery is new and has a full charge.The alternator is new also.All the lights work.I can start the car with a jumpstart .I turn the key I get nothing.Can anyone tell me what the problem could be?
Everything is hooked up right.I took the car about 20 miles down the road to see if the battery would stay charged.The alternator is charging the battery ok.Since I can jumpstart it,would that eliminate bad ignition switch and starter?
