2002 Mazda tribute won't start but can jump, car will shut off while driving


you mentioned new alternator and battery, but it seem that the alternator is not charging, when you install the new battery the car started and run and after hours of running specially if head light is on the car shuts down. this is an indication that the alternator is not charging. (factory defect) have it checked or return part to auto supply.
if alternator is good and you have the car jumped and run it will not shut down even if your battery is dead because the charge of the alternator is enough to power the electrical system of the car until you turn it off. this applies to all cars

Try to get a new alternator with the highest wattage you can find.
look for a bad ground cable also.
you can test a alternator with the engine running and touching the center shaft of the pulley with a screw driver.
You must be careful because the engine is running,if the screwdriver is magnetized and attracted to the shaft center the alternator is probably fine

How to change alternater,what needs to be removed to get it out


First begin by writing down your radio code if it has some anti-theft code.
2. Then open the hood and remove the negative terminal of the battery. Tuck the battery negative terminal aside so it won't flip back.
3. Unplug the alternator's generator connector, and the generator wire bolted to its body.
4. Locate the alternator adjuster and loosen its bolt/tensioner. Loosen the alternator pivot bolt at its base.
5. Push the alternator sideways until the belt slackens to maximum . Take out its belt.
6. Remove the pivot and tensioner bolts.
7. Take out the alternator.

Important: Battery must be fully charged before installing new alternator.

Reverse this procedure to install the new alternator.

Alternator problem


1.You need to install a Fully charged battery, before you install a new alternator. Otherwise it will burn the alternator up.

2.I read what you typed about installing a new battery. Was the new battery fully charged, and was it installed before the new alternator?
No?
See number 1 above.

a battery waring ligth is not telling you that the battery is defective, it is telling u that the battery is not being charged by the alternator, have the battery and alternator tested to determine th4e cause, a failing battery many times can damage the alternator as it causes it to overheat, so if the alternator is in need of replacing then it is very important that the battery be fully charged and tedsted prior to installing a new alternator if indeed that is the final diagnosis.
