My 2001 chevy impala dies while i am driving it. i have replaced the battery, the alternator, and the starter. my battery light stays on even with a brand new alternator installed, then the car dies and...


Look for a big red wire thats connected to the big post on the starter.Follow that wire up to the alternator. That wire should have battery voltage there all the time. If it does not, check that the fusible link, which is in that wire is not burnt or broken.

2001 ford focus se. Charging system inicator came on briefly 3 times. Car cut out 25 min later. Recently replaced battery and terminals. Seems like alternator but after dying car wouldnt start 10 hrs later...


(this damages the ecu Disconnected negative terminal and car still ran) check and clean the alternator connections. and check the earths. light can come on if water has gotten into the alternator or the connection has come loose. you don't disconnect the battery when the engine is running as it can shock the ecu alternators have a built in voltage stabilizer but this only works with feed back from the battery no feed back it can convert ac instead of dc and blow up the ecu. it also damage other parts.

2001 ford explorer sport wont charge


I'm not sure if you have all of the info you need to go forward with this.
The battery may be rated for 800 amps but could have less than 12 volts if the alternator is not charging it.
It could have a dead cell which would keep it from holding a charge.
You would need to check the charge of the battery with a volt meter, then see if the alternator is charging at 14 volts when the engine is running. The battery should be at least 12 volts with the engine off.
The problem could be in the wiring from the key switch or dash gauges back to the alternator.

Pull plug wire and install a philips screwdriver into the plug wire get it 1/4 inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over, is there spark? if so check that you have fuel pressure buy renting a fuel pressure test kit from schucks or auto zone and turn the Key to run position with the gage hooked up, it should read 50 PSI turn key off and wait 20 seconds should still have 20 PSI of fuel pressure, if no fuel pressure check fuel pump relay, then check fuse to pump. if you have a bad relay and are not getting fuel then check the oil pressure switch to see if you have oil pressure at the switch if no pressure then the oil pressure safety switch has died and needs to be replaced and should stark after replacing. If you have fuel then check the timing to see if you slipped timing belt.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport wont start


Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.
