For 2 batteries to die so quickly, u need to have your charging system checked out. Any big parts store will do a free system check, they want to sell u parts. Of course, u don't have to buy anything, but u will have an idea what is wrong, and what to do to fix it. It's probably the alternator as u suspect, and as far as the squealing belt, it needs to be adjusted, or if the echo has a auto. tensioner, u probably should replace the belt.

I was driving my 2001 Echo and it just died completely. Towed it home and when I turned ignition switch on the Eli fuse clicks and then a buzzing noise comes from the engine like a stuck sensor?


Check battery for at least 12 volts if you have less or a grate deal less it may be a chargeing problem. Charge battery if you have low volts. See if it will start if it dus check to see how much power your battery is getting from the charging system or if the car is just running off the battery and draining it down. Had you notest anything funny about the way your car was acting before it died even days before? Just start checking simple first then hardest last and checking the battery and charging system for voltage is the most simple in my opinion. Good luck

Truck dies but engine keeps running. battery or alternator?


You need an alternator....well unless your belt came off or got very loose. The truck continued to drive because the battery had enough juice left to run the ignition system, but after you shut it off there was no where near enough to turn the engine over or possibly even run the starter. The battery will have to be charged and a new alternator installed.
Hope this helps.
