2007 jeep gc won't start. Lights, battery all Dash lights had been acting strangely before this happened. Turned the car off, Swapped AC relay with starter relay and nothing.


i guess you mean starter is dead, and all lights dead.
pointing to....
the battery is dead, did you jumper cable start it?
if that works the battery is bad, dead or only dischanged.
if that dont work make sure the battery cable lugs are cleaned.
no rust on cable ends( that green junk there that all cars get)
if the head lamps die (they work key off so...)
then the battery is dead, or rusty lugs.
if battery is dead, charge it. using a charger.

When stalled car will not start again for some time and battery seems dead. What is this?


that is because it is dead?
that key dead thing is called NO CRANK, not no start.
no car starts unless cranked, or push started or gravity started,
so its a NO Crank issue,
and the stalls, well if the battery drops below 10v the EFI system
stop working just like your lap top does, or CEL phone
and for same reasons.

most folks do a jumper cable crank next. like the AAA tow truck man does first, and for good reasons.
this proves what is wrong,
1: battery was dead (car cranks now)
2: starter dead. or key line dead, if not. cranking now.

my guess is its #1

if battery was dead, then it is
  • bad battery.
  • only discharged, so why not charge it?
  • or phantom drains, (over night parking battery dies)
  • or alternator is dead, (chargelight glowing? test alt.

My car won't start. And I changed my alternator a month ago


Your car won't start as in the battery is dead? In other words, the engine does not turn over OR the engine does turn over, but the car does not start?? The alternator has nothing to do with starting the car. The battery starts the car. So is your battery dead? An alternator will not charge a battery that has seen better days. Take the car in (if you can) to autozone or advance auto and have them test the battery.

I turn the key and the car goes dead. 1994 rodeo.


It does sound as if the battery is dead. If you are sure your battery is good, you may have a short in the starting circuit.
