More often, the voltage regulator in the alternator is worn.

It usually screws on/into the alternator, and when you pull it out it has two "brushes" which are usually just silver/copper blocks. Those blocks are designed to wear down, and they are pushed onto the alternator with a spring.

The part is cheap on most cars, and you can do it yourself quite easily. Just don't forget to unplug the battery before unscrewing the regulator!

Hi if your altinator went bad then when you jump it, it will start then die once the juice has ben used in the battery,it sounds like your altinator has gone bad.get a jump and remove the posative battery terminal when the car is running.if it dies instantly your altinator is bad.

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

2002 Q45 infiniti Cranks but won't start


I am having the same issue on my 2002 Q45, most people that have had this problem have replaced the Starter Solenoid - You dont need to replace the whole starter, unless you have alot of miles. I ordered the part and I am going to try and install it this weekend. Almost everyone with this problem said that after replacing the solenoid the problem went away. Either do it yourself or have an independent mechanic do this, the dealer wants $900 for replacing the starter parts and labor. Solenoid is about 92 bucks online OEM.

Is my altenator bad or is it the battery


It could be the alternator. Did any warning light come on? Something should have alerted you if the alternator failed.
