If it starts the next morning then it's probably not the alternator. Need more info. Does it refuse to turn over or does it turn over normally and not start.

Sounds like the fuel pump is not working. I would find myself a repair manual and start reading about troubleshooting. If not interested in that I would call a repair shop.

Battery Light still on


The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

How do you adjust the rockers on the the 2002 pontiac aztec whats the clearence on the any help would be great thanks


The valve train has an automatic tensioning system. The hydraulic lifters take up any slack in the system. There is no adjustment. If you hear a lifter noise there are a few possibilities. You could be low on oil, ou could have a problem with a lifter, you may be long overdue for an oil change, you may have a rocker bolt that is starting to dock out. Here is what I would do. 1. Make sure the oil level is full on the dipstick. 2. Get a can of SEAFOAM MOTOR TUNE (12 oz) You should be able to get it at at any good parts store. 3. Add one half of the can to the oil. 4. Start the engine and let it run until the noise ges away. 5. Change the oil 6 add the other half of the can to the new oil and drive until your next oil change If the noise doesn't go away than it is not a lifter noise. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.
Most Autozone shops or places like it will run a test for free.
Good luck,Gary

It sounds like what you fried is the diodes on the alternator. You are probably due for a new alternator. On the bright side, it's much cheaper than the computer.
