Re: new battery but 1990 eagle talon won't start
Theres so many things that can cause a car not to start, can you smell petrol after trying to start? if so start with checking the spark side of things, if you dont smell gas find the fuel filter and follow the fuel hose to the fuel rail and squeeze the hose while some one turns the ignition on without starting. You should feel the hose expand when the ignition is turned to the on position, if it does then the fuel pump is doing its job. Like i said it could be alot of things but this is a good place to start. Is it multi coil set up?

The Alternator will not affect spark as long as the battery has enough charge in it. You need to scan the electronic engine control computer (called the OBD2 system computer) with a code reader, if you have no spark there should be a fault code. You can buy a coder reader for the OBD2 system at any parts store for about $50
you need to check the wires on the alternator make sure they are properly connected same with the battery and also check the fuse for the alernater and fuse for battery the battery is not getting charged alternator is the problem check these see if fixes it make sure wires to battery alternator are not spliced damaged
the controllers in the vehicle draw a small amount of power even if the car is not running, probably enough to drain a battery over a long period of time, when you store a car it is recommended to charge the battery at least once a month
This sounds like the battery is shot, or dead. Either that, or the main or alternator fuse blew. This is most likely a dead battery though. Install a new battery, and everything should be back to normal.
it is very common to forget one of the wires that attach to the positive battery terminal. There are three wires total, each with a copper colored plate on the end with a hole to go on the terminal. One wire has a fuse box on the side with 1 or 2 fuses in it, one wire comes from the starter and the las is the one that usually falls below the battery tray. That is probably your problem, if not let me know. Leave feedback please!
