Lose battery on 1999 plymouth breeze.....

My car just started doing this last week. She has power and there is clicking noise when i turn the key so i know my alternator is good. I've jumped her twice and she started up with no problem. I just tried start her again and nothing is happening again except all the lights came on. I checked all the fuses and they're good. And it doesn't help that the maker of this car put the battery underneath the car!! thanks for making my job so much harder. So is my wire to the battery lose and how can i get to it and tighten it up??? HELP!!!

Are you serious, battery under car ????????????/ are you sure? like to see a picture of that, lets pretend its not, YES , terminals could be loose, must be cleaned, apply vaseline all over terminals including cable ends, attach secure tightly both terminals, make sure battery is good. the alternator on the otherhand must be tested to determine its condition, clicking noise doesn't mean anything otherthan battery is dead. are we clear ? wintertime causes more problems with cars ,so prepare before winter, ok. fuel filter, replace it, air filter, replace it, DO ALL THIS, take car to a parts store to have alternator checked, its free!!!

SOURCE: my car jump time

#1 are you sure it jumped time?#2 how do you know this? if in fact it has jumped time you will need to have the timing belt replaced.the average interval for replacement is 60,000-80, is also a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time as it is driven by the timing belt.

SOURCE: battery charge light comes on a few minutes after car starts

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Plymouth Breeze... That won't start,

Hi, this sounds like a bad fuel pump. I would have the fuel pressure checked. Sometimes Autozone will let you borrow a fuel pressure gauge to check your fuel pressure. Just unscrew the cover from the pressure port on the fuel rail and screw on the pressure gauge. Put a rag over your hand while screwing it on to avoid getting fuel sprayed around. Lay the gauge in a safe place and start the car. Read the gauge, record the reading, turn the car off and remove the gauge. If the pressure is less than 35 psi, you need a new fuel pump. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Replaced starter, car started for 4 days. Fifth day car wouldn't start, just made a clicking noise. What could it be now?

If the lights are dim it is a battery problem. It might be a just dirty terminal or the connection on the starter is not good. Check the voltage of the battery with the lights on, should be 12 volts. If it drops when you try to start then it is faulty. The voltage when running should be 14 volts or more.

Makes a clicking noise when you turn the key, but it does not start

Possibly the starter solenoid clicking. Check the connections on the starter. Should have a small lead on it for the solenoid operation, and a bigger cable from the battery. check that these are tight. Failing that, Try turning the key while rocking the car side to side or by getting a helper to lightly tap the starter with a jack handle. If it starts then, your starter is on the way out ! Good luck.

1998 plymouth Breeze

that is possible I have had cars do that before. although fixing it will not be easy because of the setup. You need to get the front cover off and check the timing marks to see if the cams are in time with the crank if one cam is off you can lose one or more cylinders...
