2003 Alero Dies after faulty turn signals on for a week

Hi I have a question. My 2003 Alero has been working funny for about two weeks. My trip to bc. I replaced the alternator because my car died. Now about two weeks later my turn signals are working intermittently. Sometimes they would work and then I would pull over and restart my car then they would work for a bit. Sometimes they would go when I was turning. Then I drove during the day and the next night my car would not start. It had some electric because my radio would turn on but no starting the car. My battery is fairly new. Any thoughts to why this is happening. My car is an automatic and is 5 years old with 130,000 km on it. Any answers. Please.

I have a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero, the alternator and battery has been replace however the battery will not hold a charge.

If the alternator has output on the car and the battery is not being charged look for a faulty fuse or fuseable link between the two.
You would check the output of the alternator first.

2003 BMW 325xi won't start, dashboard and radio go on.

My 2003 325xi died on the highway a few weeks ago, and I thought it was the battery. It turned out to be the alternator, which was an expensive problem to repair. If your battery is new, it could be the alternator, or a problem with the electrical system. I find the BMWs to be too complicated electrically, which often leads to problems! I'd check your alternator...

The car turns on and then shuts off

if the car runs for a second and then dies its not the punp but try it again and see if the theft light either stays on or blinks if so its the factory passlock11 security system you may need to get a new coded key or ignition module
