When you put the new starter in, you didn't put one of the cables back on the post. It probably grounded itself enough to start and run, then moved by vibration, or a pothole, or gravity, and killed the motor. As for the arcing battery.... are you sure you didn't attach the jumper cables to the wrong posts?

You may have a bad alternator. Car died while driving, either gas or fire. if you know about MAFS your should know how to check starter function by jumping solenoid to large post of battery. Check for 12V at the large post on starter. Then try to jump the two connections. If car cranks, I would check ignition circuit for faults.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

New starter wont start just click


change battery cables. get rid of those small gauge wires and put wire in that will draw amps. I had one car that would kill battery every year and found out the cables were to light to keep it working properly.. both the positive to the starter and the ground cable are way to small for the car. clicking means it isn't getting enough power to the starter to spin the motor !

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.

Getting spark? Power coming from the battery I think you meant to say, if I am correct. If it won't jump start, sounds like a cable from battery to vehicle is not connected. Igniton switch connection or fuse maybe. Check the daisy chaining of the negative battery cable for clean contacts. Also a starter relay could be bad. Just some more suggestions to add. Don't drive to far from home until repaired. Towing cost too much as you know by now.
Never did like remote locks, We as humans seem to be getting more and more depended on convienances that cause us more inconvienances. Could try a positive cable to starter to check if it will turn over the starter. Voltage regulator could cause battery not to charge while driving. When car dies, do lights work or they dim from engine sucking battery dry. Just some suggestions.

Radio goes off and RPM's go to zero and car shuts off while driving


Sounds like the battery is bad. It's pretty common to lose a battery and alternator at the same time.

Takes a jump to start but dies


More infomation neededas if the battery is new and the truck still needs a jump start then the battery /or wiring/Starter motor etc are no good as the battery is good for 12.5 volts and when running 13.5 max gharge so the engine should start and run 100% Unless you have a bad short somewere..
Also check fuel pump feed .
But check Starter motor first

Clicking noise when trying to start will start with jump (purchased new battery,altinator ok) I can drive when started but shuts off if I do not keep RPMs above 750


Probably a bad engine ground or battery connection (negative cable) or a bad starter connection. Once you get it running with a boost, it's only running off what the alternator can put out, so it dies when you let off the gas.

Won't start, baterrys fine


check your voltage in your battery and if it will jump start again check the voltage while running to see if the alternator is charging
