please help i really rely on my vehicle

I have been having this issue but I don't know if it is related to whats happening today. For the past month I have been having troubles starting my car sometimes it will fire up then stall right away, and start it again then its fine... other times it will really stumble

Today, my car was fine in the morning to get to work, I went to start my car after work, and nothing, it wouldn't even turn over. So I disconnected the battery then it starts, I thought it was fine, I stop and get gas, went to start it after and nothing, so I disconnected the battery again, started it up, got home, shut off my car then started it again after 5 seconds, it started so I thought it was fine, 10 mins later I went to start it, and its not even turning over again....

thanks if anyone can help

Start by getting the battery tested.

Ditto. Something drains your battery or the battery does not keep the charge. When you disconnect it you prevent draining and let the battery regain some charge. That's why the car starts after that.

Sorry, but some how it had something to do with my old alarm that was still installed, I took out the fuses to the alarm and my car works now, maybe it had something to do with the remote start? I should have told you earlier I ruled out the fact the battery could be dead when I saw that all my accessories worked fine, and it was holding a charge, and it started no problem after disconnecting the battery for 10 seconds..

I wouldn't have posted on here for a dead battery, come on guys that's the first thing I checked:D

Thanks for the replies, I hope someone can learn from this.

The low tech idiots who design and the amateur flunkies who install cheap alarm systems should all be lined up up against a wall and shot. I have seen so many messed up electrical systems because of this it makes me puke........then there's the cheap ones that go off after any light rain, or whenever they feel like it, at 2 AM, etc..........
