Whats pulling the battery down and causing my 2002 blazer not to turn over


Is the battery new? Does it start fine until it sits overnight? Have you checked the alternator? Does the battery have sufficient cold cranking amps,dead cell? Is an interior light staying on, glove box light? Do you have an aftermarket stereo with an amp?

Po302 po303 po316 code


The Codes 302 & 303 are cylinder misfire codes,google them

Spark Plugs have nothing to do with misfires,it would be rare in
a life time if one ever failed to fire

Forget the 316 just misfires on start up

A repair shop would be your best choice without knowledge,
reference material & test equip

Ignition coil or vacuum leak problem

Check to see if alternator is charging. Battery light is an indicator that your alternator is not charging. Start engine use multimeter at battery 20 v dc or if autorange meter just dc. engine at idle the battery should read 14 - 14.5 volts. if not replace alternator.

Will not turn over first time, had two new


If engine is turning over when you cycle key to start, but engine won't start and run, then I wouldn't be looking at battery. Try cycling your key from off just to run position, where all dash lights etc come on, but not trying to start. Do that twice to on, then back to off, then turn key all the way to start, and see if it fires right up for you. If it does, change fuel filter if not done recently, and if that doesn't cure it, have fuel pressure tested, it may be low, indicating possible faulty/weak fuel pump. Let me know how it goes.

Im not quite sure about the lights but when changing the alternator the battery cables would have been off resetting the settings in the engine computer. let it run for a little bit to get readjusted and it should idle down on its own and be fine.

I have a dodge caravan 2002 it wont charge put on new alternator, and computer. it still wont charge. the wire on the back of the alternator is not showing any fire?


Why do you feel it isn't charging. Are you going off of a voltage ereadiing? I ask because if it is reading 12 v at the battery , Do not run it very long. The lower the voltage the higher the amps. An Alternator will ocweheat and self destruct if it is working at its high limit for 15 minutes or so. A heavy charge iis normal for 30 seconds or so to make up for the starting drain. But, should show a gradual rise within seconds. An alternator is for battery charge maintenance only and should never be used to charge a dead battery. A dead battery can an will over tax the alternator for too long. A defective battery will do the same thing and it is usually why you have to change the alternator in the first place. So, If your battery is dead or extremely lpw, it should be charged with a charger Do not put a new or rebuilt Aly. sgainst a possible bad battery. It costs nothing to have your batt load tested by a auto parts store. Good Luck=Ned-.

If you're car has been running fine, then suddenly won't start, the cause is frequently that the fuel pump cutoff has been tripped. Open your trunk, and look for a label for a fuel pump cutoff switch. Locate the switch, press it in, and see if the engine will start.

2002 Saturn SL1 - won't start, turn over, starts fine with jump


Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.
