Yeah it is the alternator, but it can be the fuse for the alternator(some types have fuese in the inhouse fuse panel) or it could be the coil or rectifier in the alternator itself, some auto eletricians can repair them, in most cases they recomend you change it. The click click click is the starter getting little or not enough power to be able to tumble the engine. YOu may also want to check the battery poles for corrosion as this will limit the batterys ablility to be charged, also check that the connecting poles on the battery are tight.

I'd make sure I cleaned and inspected the battery connections,(both ends too) re-charge your battery & have it load tested, and charging system checked for charging. Also check your belts for worn or loose.

Batterie and brake light stays on changed new batterie new alternator car ran fine the next day the car would not crank


There is obviously have a drain on the battery. You have a faulty break light pedal switch causing the lights to stay on, or your turn signal switch is bad. your brake lights run through, the turn signal switch too. That could also cause the problem.

No turning signals


more than likely the turning signal module is shorting out and needs to be replaced or the harness connecting to it is shorting out hence the drain.. To stop the drain remove the indicator fuse and relay from the fuse box under the hood. This will also prevent an electrical fire and get this looked at asap. from a trained professional... I would also recommend you remove the negative battery terminal.

2003 Trail Blazer Problem? Not sure if the issues are related but happened with-in a week of clicking noise coming from the rear panel (3rd row) on the passanger side when I started it clicked about 2-3...


To start, these may or may not be related. First off, the clicking noise from the rear is one of the actuators in the rear HVAC unit. It is clicking either because the door it controls is stuck or the gear is stripped.
What wire did you cut to stop the clicking? And did you tape it up to prevent shorting? If that wire is contacting something, it will cause the battery to drain.
The cars dies when you turn on the AC because you need to clean the throttle body. When you replaced the battery you reset the computer, it now has to relearn to the dirty throttle body.

The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

2005 suburban,I had the tires rotated and the battery died twice


Depends on how long he was trying to program the TPMS. With the engine not running and the ignition keys on, the day time running lights are on and the head lights are draining the battery. Next time your going to have the ignition keys on for a long period of time with out the engine running, set your parking brakes. Setting your parking brakes will keep your Day time running lights from coming on.

The turn signals and hazard lights quit working temporarily


About the only thing that would cause both the turn signals and hazard lights not to work at the same time would be the flasher relay.
