Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Power off my car stopped running suddenly for no reason. i turned on the engine and all the power in the car went off. i jumped it. it worked again just fine for a week. then turned off completely again. tried jumping it again. it didnt work. towed it home and today before i tried changing the battery, the car powered on fully without and runs fine. Could this be an electrical problem or a fuse? what could cause the car to turn off for no reason and turn back on? it was not overheating.

Double check your battery connections & make sure they are all clean & tight, and don't forget to check other end of ground, not just positive. be sure to take a good look at the ends for wire deteriorating at connections. I have seen batteries short out like that, so battery is certainly a possibility, but eliminate the other posibilities first/too. You might find a ground strap ( flat braided strap) going from passenger side frame area, to engine, make sure that's in good shape & connected to a good ground too.

Sounds like your alternator is not working, if you can get the engine running and have access to a volt meter check the voltage on the battery terminals, With the engine running you should see in excess of 13V

I would say that you need to replace the alternator. The car was running on the batteries power. When you drove the car, it ran the battery completely dead.

Engine won't turn over.


I'm afraid what you're describing sounds like your bearings went out. Your engine is probably seized up or blown. There is no cheap or easy fix for this problem, your engine will have to be rebuilt or replaced.

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

Not the battery. Once the car is started, a bad battery will not cause it to stop running all of a sudden.
For engine to run you need - compression, air, fuel, spark.
Might want to check out your ignition coil for an intermittent condition - try replacing it.
And if it does not turn over(crank) check the wiring going to the starter motor,solenoid, for good connectivity. And make sure that your fuel pump is always getting power and pumping.

Your problem is either the Alternator isent charging its 13.5 volts and the battery is flat or wont hold the charge SO do this.
Jump start engine again let it run for 2 minutes then turn on lights,, the head lights should go bright at 13.5 volts. it engine cuts out..and the lights dont go bright,, then the Alternator is not charging,,,, If they go bright and still cuts out the batterys NO GOOD.
Replace battery or get it checked outit must hold 12volts all the time Let me know how you get on.
