Title explains it, i just charged the battery for like 2-3 hours today, and car wouldn't start. Switch the charger on boost mode, cranks right up and drives perfect. As soon as far turns off, no more start.

Kinda annoying seeing as I am driving 2 hours to a track today...and 2 hours back...yipee.

Any ideas?

Always keep a spare :)

I HATE battery and ALTERNATOR issues!! I am fighting my charging system right now.
I had these issues with my electric fans and battery. I havnt had an issue with it since I went with the MR2 alternator.

The car has been sitting for almost a month without running, and im still easily able to put the windows up and down, etc etc.

I used to have issues after just 2 days of sitting.

He said he could start it with the charger on boost mode, then the car drives perfectly.

It is plain and simple that you need a new battery, unless you do not conect the charge at the battery terminals, in this case you may just be having problems with your cables.

why havent YOU bought a new battery yet???

just sounds like you have a diminished capacity on your battery. the hot underhood temperatures kill batteries so they typically last 3-5 years or so.

I took out the battery to inspect it, and the sob got battery acid all the fuck over the place.

In conclusion, I bought a new battery.
