It sounds as if you might have to replace the battery, if your battery is shot you can still get a boost and the car will run because the alternator produces electricity which should take car of the cars functions and top up the charge on the battery. if the battery is no longer taking the charge or not holding it as soon as you shut it off it will not have enough power to start the starter. A lot of automotive place will do a check on your battery if you take it to them.

please note that i'm not a mechanic and this is just based on my own experiance

On my 2002 CR-V Honda it started not wantin to crank let it sat awhile it wld crank now it wont crank at all what could be it be the Starter/Alternator


If it won't crank at all the battery is too weak or bad. Try boosting. If ti goes with a boost, check battery and batery circuits for problems, re-charge the battery. Don't forget to chceck the fluid level in the battery as well as the gravity to see what condition its in.

I hope you dont have an alarm system as they get triggered, your battery needs charging since its completely dead and boosting would not charge any battery, have your altinator check for out put, should be 14V+

Just shut off the care returned 2 hours later no go got a boost went for a drive left the car running for awhile than it start to get like it was going to stall went on g=for a littlwe while than died....


Hi your problem sounds like the battery is gone and won`t take a charge. When your engine is running the alternator is supplying the electrical power to run the car ( and normally charging the
battery as well )
Even though it seems strange for the battery to go suddenly, it does happen.
How old is the bat. Most last about 5 years with normal driving ( batterys last longer if the car is used every day )
Anyway i hope i have been of some help to you.

Our car just dies out all of a sudden and it sounds like the car wants to start. Then we boost it for awhile maybe 30 mins to an hour to finally start then it will start good for a couple of days. Then do...


Its dying because the battery is not being charged, and it takes power to run the ignition pak to run motor and electrical systems. I would have the alternator checked out as that seems to be the most obvious problem,only other solution is battery will not take a full charge. usually if the alternator is charging it will supply the power to run the car, but if the battery wont take a charge then it will not have enough power to start the car or run the voltage that the ignition needs to operate. solution is bad battery or bad alternator.

All the lights on my 2004 s10 blazer are strobing or blinking


Its most likely the voltage regulator which is most often attached or inside the alternator its a replacable item. Normaly the sighns of an alternator gone are a dying battery.

My car sometimes wont start and when it does it cuts out and dies


Put a voltmeter on battery. It should say something like 12 volts. Start motor and see if you have about 14.5 volts while running. If not your charging system has failed.
