Why am I having problems starting my Bravada. There is power, the started worksb, but when I turn the key nothing happens.All the dash board lights come on but no starter engagement?

do the dashboard lights go out when key turned to start? when you say nothing happens,is there a click? does the motor turn over,but not fire? is it an automatic,meaning is the gear inhibitor switch preventing starter from working?have you tried a jumper battery?putting a jumper lead from the battery earth to the engine ground helps sometimes,if earthing cables broken

My 2003 Bravada has "battery not charging" light, but car starts fine. Auto Zone tested battery...Fine. Said it was alternator, but how do i know?

Suing a volt meter check to see what the charging voltage is at the battery with the engine running. If you see more than 14 volts than the alternator is working. If you see less than 13 and most likely you will see 12, the alternator is not working. Next shut off the engine and make sure there is 12 volts on the large cable/terminal on the back of the alternator. If there is replace the alternator.

My battery won't stay charged on my 2009 camry

The alternator is the charging source for the battery. Alternator can be checked with vehicle running at your local auto parts store, and if not running, take alternator off and carry to the store for checking it out. First check all connections for corrosion, and if the battery has removeable caps, insure that chambers are full using distilled water.

Most likely your battery is dead and your alternator has failed. Have your battery you will need to have the alternator tested and the battery charged and tested.
Good luck.

My bravada sometimes stalls.The voltage goes down when I am at a stop .When I try to go,it doesn't want to go and sometimes stalls out.While I'm driving it's fine and the voltage is good.One time when I...

Have your alternator checked, the voltage regulator which is an internal part in your alternator may be going bad and when there is an electrical load. The alternator does not produce enough voltage. That a multi meter and check your voltage at the battery, engine not running you should have 11.5 to 12 volts.
With the engine running you should have 13.5 to 14.0 volt reading at the battery, turn on your A/C blowers on high and head lights on and you should still have a minimum of 13.5 volts at the battery.
If your readings drops less then 10 volts, the Bravade ECM will shut down the fuel pump or the voltage is to low for the electric fuel pump to keep the fuel pressure at 56 PSI which will cause the fuel injectors to stop working.
Thank you or using fixya and good luck.
