It is not the battery the alternator needs to be tested it is probably not giving of the proper amperage so it will not charge the battery, if you can drive it to the auto part store they can test it if not take it off and have a load test done on it,,,

For starters, it sounds like your battery can't produce enough amperage. Have it tested and replace if needed. Then see if things are better.

I have lost all power to my vehicle while driving. What could this be?


It is possible that you had enough battery power to get started but once running you were essentially using the alternator and eventually it gave up. The reason why a boost did not work is that your battery probably is very dead

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

96 mustang dies electrically while driving


did you change your battery or have a load test performed on it,it could be bad.
Have your mechanic change the wire harness for the alternator at the plug,they can burn out on the inside and look good on the outside,They are black 10 guage with orange stripe,and smaller guage plug wires.This part canbe purchased from the parts store, or dealer.

Dashlight Stays on and Battery Runs Down Completely After Shutoff


You have a slow short somewhere in the vehicle. Have you had the alternator checked. While the alternator may work fine while running, it is possible that the alternator has "sticking diodes" which will cause the alternator to "stay on" and drain the battery.

I have a 1991 Mustang GT, and it runs awhile but goes dead,I have replaced the fuel filter and that did not stop the problem. The car runs about 5 or 6 minutes but shut down and will not restart, but will...


test the fuel pressure first. use a guage and watch it till engine dies. also the guage has a bleed off hose, run a small amount of gas into a cup and check for water
