I forgot to switch OFF the head lights of the battery, now it's completely drained off...
i couldn't start the car. Even tried by pushing the vehicle and starting it. But that didn work.

Why even pushing won't start?
What should i do now? Posted in: #Coffee Room

Get a pair of jumper cables and jump start your car. Starting requires alot of power to overcome resistance in the engine. the bigger the engine the more cranking power required. A drained battery cant do this. You would need the power from another car's battery to give you this extra boost. Once you start the alternator will begin recharging your car battery. Once you get it to start run the car from some time then go get your voltage tested. It should be around 12-13 volts. Let me know how its works. If you get it to restart top up the cells with battery water. Good luck! 馃憤

Do you have your car manual that is given while owning your car as a brand new.
there will be a guidance in that, please read it carefully and work on to that.

Yep, i could have done that, though i couldn find any friends car to start the car like that.. But i just went to a battery shop and got a spare battery and started the car with it. Later the drained battery was charged and it now works fine. BTW, i did not maintain the battery at all. No Distilled Water, no charging etc. So obviously that made the problem.

BTW, can anyone spray some information about How-to maintain a battery/it's maintenance?
