Complete Electrical failure. fuses and battery good?


Sounds more like you have a bad alternator that is unable to keep the battery charged. Once the battery dies while driving, the spark plugs will no longer be able to ignite and the fuel won't burn, causing your engine to shut off. Some cars have a fuseable link between the battery and alternator that will burn out, or partially burn out causing the same symptoms and is a lot cheaper to replace. Check that first.

I have a Honda Accord 2004 Ex 4cylinder. It was sluggish to start so we took the battery to get it tested and they said it was bad. We got a new one and the battery light stayed on when we put the battery...


sounds like a starter problem. You need to have an experienced mechanic evaluate your car. You may have an electrical problem that is depriving battery power to the starter. Or it simply may be a bad starter. Once again you need to have a mechanic who is knowledgable with electrical diagnosis evaluate your cars system. hope this helps.

My vehicle will not start. the engine makes no sound, so what may be the problem and how do i fix it.


if you have coroded battery terminals clean them with water and baking soda and a wire brush then reconnect them and seal them with vasoline then jump start the car also if your terminals are corroded most likely the battery is shot and the alternator will burn up trying to charge a weak battery so replace the battery if bad or you will be replacing the alternator soon as well

I have a new alternator on a 1992 Honda Accord, but my battery keeps going dead?


The battery may not be holding charge. If you drained your battery a few times because of a bad alternator, it is possible to destroy the cells in the battery causing one or more of them to no longer hold a charge. Most batteries are manufactured to be cycled or completely drained 8 times. Other factors such as excessive load and age can decrease that number. You may also have a faulty voltage regulator that can result in overcharging and destroying the battery. Charge the battery on portable charger and have it tested. Also, It is possible that since most alternators are rebuilt they can be bad out of the box.
