SOURCE: power drains while driving is it my battery ?

If you jumped the car already and it seemed fine while the cables were connected to the other car, then the electrical systems began to fail after the cables were disconnected, your most likely culprit is the alternator.

Once the car is started, all the electrical systems should be running off your alternator, not the battery itself. When the alternator goes out the electrical systems on most modern cars will continue to feed off the battery instead of the alternator. When this occurs you will see your battery light illuminate on the dashboard display for most vehicles.

Your best bet when you see the electrical systems failing like this is to get the car to a safe location quickly as once the battery voltage gets too low, the electrical systems (including your computer which controls timing and everything in your engine) will fail and the car will stop running.

If this is the case the car does not necessarily need to be towed. If you intend to move it on your own, you should 1 turn off all headlights, radios and everything else that is a drain on the electrical system (heat/ac, etc), jump the car using another with a good alternator and battery. Leave the cars connected and running for 15-20 minutes or so and have the person follow you DURING THE DAY only. Do not attempt this at night as your headlights will be a major drain on the battery and in the event they go out you could cause an accident.

If you are only running vital systems off the now fully charged battery, you should be able to get 5-10 miles before the battery clunks out on you again. This process can be repeated until you reach your repair center, but the safest and best option is to simply have the vehicle towed to it's destination. This option is only for those who can not afford it and are willing to take the risk. If you car dies in an area where it cannot be jumped easily, you will most likely need to have it towed anyway, but if your destination is within 10 miles or so, this option can save you a lot on the towing fees.

SOURCE: Driving down the road the car will shut off 1998

For my 1998 Intrigue, the security light is on solid with the key in the ON position.
Seat belt light may flash, but no flashing security light, just a solid red security light.

The learn procedure does not work for me when the security light is on.
The car will not start, only turns maybe a quarter rotation, and stops.

For me, the idea is to do the learn procedure with the security light OFF.

The Intrigue stopped on the road, and would not start. 136,000 miles on the odometer.
I replaced the Ignition Control Module (ICM) and Ignition Coils.
I had a grinding, sqealing sound, so I replaced the starter as well, which took care of the noise.

For my 1998 Old Intrigue, the security light goes off immediately after trying to start,
if you only release the key to the ON position. (Do NOT turn to OFF position.)

After attempting to start, leave it in the ON position, with the security light OFF.
Wait 10 minutes.
Next, turn to the OFF position for 30 seconds.

Repeat three times (with the security light OFF).

I have a plain metal key, there is no remote start.

Now the car finally cranks over, but does not kick in (No RPM's, except for a smal jump on the
needle when I end the start attempt).

If you have a buddy, open the gas cap and turn the key to the ON position.
You should be able to hear the fuel pump engage.

Next replacement will be the crankshaft sensor. I bought the part, but that takes special
tools that I do not have, so I will have that crankshaft sensor installed.

Hi can any1 help me with my nissan sentra problem?my car just shut off while driving and lost power be for it shut completely off tried to crank it back up but it didn't start sprayed some starter

Crank shaft sensors often fail without triggering a code. But in its early stages, a check engine light may be on. Symtoms of a bad crank sensor are: poor acceleration ( lack of power ) rough idle, ETC. sometimes you may be able to start it normally, and other times it takes 3 or more times. If the check engine light is on take it to a auto parts store and thy can read the code for free. To tell if that's the problem. God-Bless!
