Ford explore wont start just clicks but ABS light came on right before this happened


This could be the alternator, When your putting it in gear it could be draining to much power and there for making the car stall... It could also be an air flow sensor or an idle speed sensor.

Transmission or altenator?


I would say change the alternator out. Start with the simplest and cheapest factor first. Without the alternator keeping the engine running its hard to put it any gear.

Toyota Prado 97 (petrol). Can jump start but has loss of power when put in gear or lights, whipers or anything else turned on. Battery indicator says ok.


It sounds like you might have a bad alternator. You can't always trust you gauges. Jump it off again and check the voltage at the battery. You should have 14 volts. If it is less then that you have a bad alternator. Good luck.

Car wont start,seems like battery went dead


If the car doesn't start with a jump you might have a bad alternator. The alternator supplies voltage to the car once the engine is running. If the battery is dead, and the alternator isn't putting out sufficient voltage, the engine cannot run. Then again sometimes a car with an extremely dead or internally shorted battery WON'T start with a jump. Replace the battery and try again.

It could be a timing belt issue, or your starter is no good... taking too much power.
