Heres my story, its snowing and very cold out and I drove my car yesterday and then this morning the car wont start. I had no probs with it yesterday but today for some reason it wont start. When I turn the key it doesnt make any kind of sound at all could this be the battery or the starter. Can someone tell me this, its actually my daily driver a Toyota Camry Wagon. I just cant see it being the starter but it could be the battery can someone help??

bring the battery inside for a while so it can warm up, then try again.

Yeah you think this will work??[/b][/quote]
Yes, battery acid is a combination of sulfer and water. When water freezes it will make the battery inoperable.

try this first.

If it's snowing, then it's probably not cold enough to freeze the battery. Have your batter checked and if you need a new one, get one with good cold cranking amps.

Go to Sears. They will check your battery for you, recommend a good replacement for your car and their Diehards hold up nice and have a hassle free warranty :thumbsup:

Hey guys well I tried jump it with a car battery charger and I guess the battery went bad because even when I charged it would crank over. Im guessing now I need a new battery! :uh:
