2002 chev impala will not start, will not crank over and lights will go out when i try and start it

Have the battery tested if no good replace. Check for power at the starter cable and then while someone holds the key in the crank position check for power at the trigger wire of the starter. If you have power but no crank or click then you may have a bid starter or the engine is seized. If no power on the tarter little wire which comes from the ignition switch make sure you fuses and relay is good and that your ignition switch is working. If the battery tests good have your alternator checked as well. The cluster may act erratic if battery is low or bad.

The starter turns over very well on my 2002 Chevy Tahoe but it will not start. It acts like it is not getting any gasoline. Can anyone give me some troubleshooting suggestions?

Check for spark at your plugs first, with the plug out check for fuel in the cylinder. It can be a number if issues but you need to establish if you are getting spark at your plugs.

sounds like your battery is dying,, have it LOAD tested,, it could show 12 volts, but the amperage isn't up to par,, even with one bad cell the battery will drain , also,, once you know its fully charged, start the vehicle,, use a meter at the battery posts to check the voltage,, you should get a reading of 13.5-14.5 volts, if not your alternator isn't doing its job, make sure all battery connections are clean and tight.

Replaced alternator and battery in 2002 Chevy Tahoe. Battery voltage remains between 9 and 14 (leaning more towards 9 and at times falling completely until trucks shuts off)

When you say battery voltage how are you testing it? Are you looking at a gauge on the dash? Or are you physically testing it with a multi meter? If the truck is dying and you recently replaced the alternator and battery I would first suggest you to check all them connections again real good. Snug them all up. Check for corrosion and clean as needed. Did you replace the battery and alternator with new/re-manufactured battery and alternator? The alternator needs to put out at least 13.6 volts to charge your 12 volt battery or the battery will not maintain a charge. However the alternator runs the vehicle once it is started. The battery is used only to start the car and then the alternator runs it. So if your vehicle starts and runs and then dies you may have a bad alternator. Check your connections first and then test the alternator with a multi meter. Anything less than 13.6 volt will not suffice. 14+ volts would be the hopeful output of a good alternator.

Check the battery cables, both positive and negative. Not just on the battery end, but at the starter, and the engine block. The cable could have a bad spot along its length that may or may not be visible. The best troubleshooting step is to replace them.

My 2002 Tahoe has been hard to start the last week. I would go to start it and it would act as if the battery didn't have enough juice in it to start. I live in Pheonix so batteries don't last very long. A...

It sounds to me like you starter has been going out for awhile now. A weak starter will not start from an older battery that doesn't put out the current of a new one. Even though the battery will check out fine the starter is demanding full current. It sounds like it finally gave up. Take it to a shop and they can test it.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Sedan: Starter, alternator, both, or otherwise?

Clicking??? Probably starter/alternator. does the starter turn? The clicking, is that all you get when you turn the key? Have the battery checked and make sure its holding a charge. If battery holds a charge, its time to have your alternator tested, if the alternator checks, then the clicking may be the starter/soleniod. Places like autozone will check the battery/alt for free, provided you can still drive to get there.
