Well...your battery is dead. Check the connections of the cables on the battery posts to make sure they are tight and clean (no corrosion). While you're under the hood, look at the belt (serpentine) that runs your alternator. Is it there? If it fell off, your alternator can't charge your battery. You may have a bad alternator, a bad battery, or no belt....but use a battery charger to charge the battery...your alternator is only designed to "maintain" the charge, not bring it up to full power. Good luck, alternators for the MX5 are spendy, so I hope it's one of the other problems.

A few weeks ago my astra 2001 started to splutter and the carbon emmissions orange light came on,it stayed on for abt a week then went off,then a few weeks later it happened again then went off so i put it...


First start to check for fuel pressure. It sounds like you have a bum fuel fuel pump. Have some one turn the key and someone else listen nearest the tank to see if they can hear it turn on. Let me know what you find.

Lost all power while driving. Jump started car but lost all power once again after I drove for a quarter of a mile. Do I need a new battery or do I have a problem with my alternator?


can be either on or both. if you have a volt meter handy get the car started and place the leads on the terminals on the battery, if the alternator is working you should have over 13 volts indicated.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start. Came home from work parked the car no problems at all. Few hours later went out to leave and it won't start. Just out of the blue. I was able to jump start it. No...


Battery is dead... get a volt meter, jump the car and with the car running on its own power check the voltage, anything less than 12v could point to an alternator but a new battery is a better place to start. put it to you this way if the car shuts off while driving, then its your alt, and if its fine wen drivin but wont start back up... its all battery
