Default Re: car wont start. battery?

Since the stock battery was around 450cca from what I've been able to find, 525 is technically overkill. I'm very happy with the 650cca battery I just put in though. Dad bought it (over a year ago) and declared it dead over 6 months ago and I didn't even need to charge it before using it according to my DMM

+1 to more info on what is/isn't happening.
Is the security light on/flashing?
Is the engine spinning like normal but just not running on it's own?
Are the battery cables corroded where the bolt into the battery? (should be a copper or silver color, any green crud needs to be removed)

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
