Get a cigarette lighter voltage gauge and watch the voltage.

It should never go below 12 volts before you crank the engine, or after you turn it off. If it's above 13 volts after you shut it off and below in the morning, the battery is on it's way out.

Right after you start it, especially in the morning, the voltage should rise to 13.8 or 14.8 volts and then drop back down to 13.2 or 3 as you drive. If it doesn't you have a charging problem.

Definately remove and replace the cables to the battery, the problem is often the connection.

Hi my 91 subaru legacy was going jujst fine and then all of the sudden while i was pushing on the pedal , the car just stopped moving and died. and wont start back up. wont even turn over.


Hi Reese, what do you mean by "won't turn over"? Does the engine rotate but not fire, or does it not even rotate? If it won't rotate, perhaps your alternator belt was loose or worn and the battery didn't get charged. If the battery is good and the engine rotates, then the alternator has possibly died. The other possibility, is that the fuel pump had died.

I guess its a common problem for xterras just to die when driving huuh lol.... just like all of you. i was driving and mine died at a stop light to lol.... people keep telling me that it might be the timing belt or distributor ( if you remove the distributor cap and someone turns the key a little, if the rotor spins that means the distributor took a dump.. and if the rotor dont spin the timing belt took a dump... i will be checking this out to see if its true this weekend..

My car keeps dieing.... i have already replaced the alternator and the battery.... i dont know what to do anymore..


I THINK THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING THE BATTERY. CHECK FOR A BLOWN FUSE IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD & IN THE CAR, 2 FUSE BOXES. IGNITION SWITCH NEEDS TO BE ON WHILE TESTING THE FUSES

Sounds like an electrical problem to me since you lose power as well when it dies. I would check to make sure I have a good clean ground to the battery to the block.
