Question about 1993 Geo Tracker
Replaced both Battery and Alternator. Car ran great for about 4 or 5 days. Drove it for around 55 miles, parked, started up again about 5 hours later. Ran fine, then died on me in slow traffic. Had to have it pulled to the shoulder. Without car running, it can't be shifted into neutral. Had to charge battery before it would start again. Alternator is correctly installed and there are new terminal ends on the cables. Can't find anything loose or disconnected. After the battery is charged, starting is fine, but the Battery light flickers from bright to very dim and fluctuates. HELP!!!
It`s not uncommon to have a faulty unit, try voltage test on battery with engine running and all the electric`s you can switch on it should be putting out 13-15 volts at the battery also check belt tension...

SOURCE: car will not start
It is most likely your alternator, Your alternator is responsible for charging your battery, Which if your battery is fine, is the likely cause of your issue, HOWEVER, Be sure to check your battery cables for damage, Make sure the clamps are tightly connected to your battery, If they have corrosion (White fluffy stuff) on them, Take them off and clean them (BLACK (Negative) First, Then take the RED (Positive) off and clean that too, Then put them back on in the reverse order.) with a stiff wire brush, Also be sure to clean the terminals on the battery.
