Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: 2001 mustang has new battery, won't start unless it's jumped, then dies after trying to drive a few yards

You have a defective alternator most likely, have it tested by any Autozone it is free.

Could be the cranking amps in the battery are under par. Needing new battery. Or the alternater is not working properly.

My 2000 mustang battery died and now everytime i try to charge the battery the alarm goes off and nothing works to shut it off...how do i shut it off?


You factory security alarm needs to be reset.

Insert the key in the drivers door, turn left, then right to disarm and reset it.

Once this is done, charge the battery.

If this does not work, do the reset again, then disconnect the battery and charge it out of the vehicle. Once it is charged reconnect it. You may need to perform the key reset again afterwards.

If this does not work then the system has malfunctioned and either I can explain how to bypass it if you have some level of electric ability or you will have to bring it to a dealer.

best of luck.

96 mustang dies electrically while driving


did you change your battery or have a load test performed on it,it could be bad.
Have your mechanic change the wire harness for the alternator at the plug,they can burn out on the inside and look good on the outside,They are black 10 guage with orange stripe,and smaller guage plug wires.This part canbe purchased from the parts store, or dealer.
