2000 GT - Battery dies, but isn't dead?
I have a 2000 GT with 154,000 and a manual tranny. Over the past three weeks, my car has just died when I attempt to turn it on (it's only happened 3 times in that time span). What will happen is I put the key in the ignition and turn it to run for a second, then I turn it on. It is at this time that I get a "POP" and all power goes away. I found a quick fix to it, however. If I remove the positive AND negative battery cables for a couple seconds and then put them back on, my car works fine. My dad and I have replaced the battery terminals with cheap AutoZone generics. The old ones were nasty. It almost seems as if there is a short in the cables somewhere causing the battery to just die. Well any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
