Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
So today i was sitting at a stoplight and all of a sudden my car cut off. (That previous morning a friend of mine charged the battery before they put it back in my car)
But anywho, I can tell when it's going to cut off because the hand where the gear numbers are will go below 1 and it will just cut off right then and there. It easily cranks back up, but one time it didnt. I had to get a boost. And I was wondering is it really my battery or maybe my alternator??? I have no clue about cars so my terminology sucks. I only know so little.
But I heard that my battery could be weak and i was also wondering that since my mom isnt using her battery anymore...if her battery could replace mines?? She has a 98 Pontiac Bonneville but her battery is waaay more powerful than mines. So #1 is my battery the problem and #2 if so, can i use my moms battery???
Is the red batt. light on in dash,if it is check all connection at alternator if there clean and tight,if there ok,start car unhook one of the batt. cable,dont let touch anything be careful,if car stops the alternator is defect
