Lost all electric and 01 Accent died while driving down highway

Was going bout 65 when All electric started to go. Then all electric including headlights was gone. Took my exit, and car died after stopping at light. After trying to restart the car all I hear is click, click, click. The accent doesn't even try to turn over. Is this the starter, battery, alternator, or combination?

My daughter was driving my 1997 sunfire and said at 65 or 70 lost compression and it over heated what does that mean


This is what happened to me. I had lost coolant (because of a crack in the radiator, the engine overheated, and cracked the head. I was going 75 down the highway and lost all compression.

2000 mazda 626 driving down highway then just dies.. timing belt or fuel pump/filter?


By you saying the engine "Dies" I am going to assume it restarts.
If the timing belt failed the engine would not start again until the belt was replaced.
So it could be a fuel or electrical problem.

91 Geo Storm Gsi running just fine, one day I lost power driving 65, check engine light came on and was flickering, mph arm going up and down but didn't die then. Then it was ok.That happened 2 times...


Most engines don't fair well under extreme heat. It's apparent you might have some electrical issue's. Your rpm's or mph arm going up and down could be faulty speed sensor would cause arm problem. I think you may have more than one problem, the car shutting off is due to engine over-heating. Check cooling system-thermostat, water pump, radiator, engine fans and coolant temp sensor and fan relay's. It could be as simple as blown radiator hose.

Replaced transmission seal then on 2 different occasions going down highway at bout 65 to 70 miles hour transmission kept shifting btween overdrive n drive come to a stop n take off didnt do it again...


Computer controlled transmissions can get confused at times, from my personal experience. If the problem doesn't happen again, I would ignore it. If it happens all the time, it's most likely the transmission computer. Other things could be the shift linkage, engine vacuum leak, speed sensor, etc... Hope this helps.

Car died while driving down the highway


Needs tuning. Also replace fuel and air filters. If that doesn't help then it may need piston ring replacement.

I have a Hyundai Accent (1999 with 70k miles. I replaced timing belt and water pump at 65 k miles and in general car was running fine except that the check engine light was on. I was driving on highway...


Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.

Car dies going down the road


First thing i would check would be the fuel filter. Sometimes, when they first start to give problems, there is enough gas to keep them idling or driving around town, but when you get on the highway they starve for fuel.
