    I know nothing about student loans.

    I do know about cars and batteries.


    Are the terminals in battery clean?

    Is there water in each cell about an inch from the top?

    If yes

    Alternator or starter could be bad.

    I truly hope your degree isn't in communications.

    And you need to finish writing your questions, so people will know exactly what you're asking.
