    Checked all the fuses. Not those either. So I'm at a lost.

    Sounds like you have a blown fuse(s).

I have a 2001 monster Carlo 3.4, was driving and car was running fine all the sudden started losing speed and went to pull off free way and it died. Won't start, Silence when I try to start it.


IF you try to start it and turn the key and get NOTHING. The most likely cause of everything is: The alternator died and quit charging the battery. The battery died while you were driving because there was no alternator charging it. When the battery died, all the ignition signals stopped.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction with my 2004 Mazda 6 issue. Two months ago, the terminals went bad and they were replaced. Then about a month ago, the battery died and was replaced. ...


it is possible that the low beam headlight bulbs went bad at the same time, need to check for power at the headlight connections. if no power it is possible that you could have blown a fuse since the car has had other electrical issues. also will want to check the dimmer switch on the steering column, it to may be bad not allowing the low beams to work.

Battery keeps draining


if your battery died while driving and the car cut off while your driving,, your problem is from your alternator!!!,, on a normal working car, you can start, remove ther battery terminals and the car would still run cause the alternator will be powering the car. In your case the alternator isnt working and the car was working on battery power therefore when the battery went dead the car cut off.. Your alternator need \s to be charging between 13.5 and 14.2 volts.. as little as 10 volts will keep the vehicle running.. I'd suggest you have the alternator replaced.

All gauges went dead while driving, lights progressively dimmed and finally engine quit.


Your alternator died. You drove until your battery died also. You need a new alternator and a new battery. You might be able to get away with just charging your battery. Do Not jump start the vehicle and let the new alternator try to charge the old battery! Take the battery to a service station for testing and a charge. Install the new alternator and then install the charged battery not vice versa and you'll be fine.
