Installed new battery on 2006 Galant and it still wont crank the engine. Put Jumpers on and it starts. Whats the problem?


If you're jumping with the jumper neg lead on engine block (like you should) then you have a bad ground lead.
If you are jumpering to the battery terminals then the connection to the battery itself is bad. Clean the battery connector terminals.

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

I would want to know if you have at least 12 volts at the battery posts, and also at the starter. You need to know if the cables are causing the problem, or something else.
Once the engine starts, it should be running off the alternator, but it still needs the battery in the circuit.

Took car for a drive and had it up to 95 mi per hour and the car died. Battery was completely dead. Jumped it and it ran for about a block and died again. Replaced the batter and check alternator and both...


If the battery was completely dead, then you either have an immense power drain (unlikely) or your battery or alternator are faulty.
When you say you replaced the battery. Was that with a brand new one?
Assuming your battery is fine and fully charged, then the vehicle should start.
If the vehicle starts, then check your instrument cluster for a charge warning indicator.(typical red battery sign). If this is on, then your battery is not being charged.
You can also check with a multimeter across your battery terminals when switched off. You are looking for a voltage around 12.6 volts.
With the vehicle running, run the same test across the terminals. A healthy alternator should be charging at anywhere around 14Volts.
When running, if the battery voltage is constantly dropping, then you have a faulty charging circuit.

Car only starts when jumped, quits when brake pedal is pressed


disconnect all the connections to the battery and clean them , also clean all the grounds, check the alternator to engine ground, and engine to body grounds, what you describe is indication of a bad connection and applying the brake is enough to to lower the voltage needed to power the ignition circuit, brake light use a lot of juice

98 chevy astro battery or alternator


Well, just for electrical basics coverage, the alt puts out volts and amps and it is possible for it to put out enough volts but not enough amps.

Best thing to do is to take the alt off and have it checked to see if it's putting out enough volts and amps.

If it is, then maybe the battery is shorted out and is drawing too much off the alt to allow it to run the vehicle.

I hope this helps
