Five Hundred

  • CVT transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Car needs to be jump started every time I go to start the car. Even after leaving the car running for an HR to charge the battery, then shut it off, it'll start if I restart it immediately.. but if I wait just 5-10min to start it up again, I can't start it and it needs to be charged again. Both my starter and alternator have been replaced, the connector cables to the battery are damn near in perfect condition. I was told it could possibly be a ground wire or the throttle body but those sources aren't too sure of their diagnosis either. PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT! I'm a single mom and need my car to start and run appropriately in order to provide for my family since I have my own cleaning business and use my car to travel to each job.

Wife parked the car in the garage, it sat for about 2 hours she went to leave and it would not start. There was no power in the battery and there is a continual clicking noise even with the key out of the ignition.
