Easy way is to start the car and pull off one of the battery connctor. if the car stop runing, the problem is your alternator. if not,
check the regulator with a meter, it should read between 12-14v. while the car is runing. if anything less, change the regulator.

When stalled car will not start again for some time and battery seems dead. What is this?


that is because it is dead?
that key dead thing is called NO CRANK, not no start.
no car starts unless cranked, or push started or gravity started,
so its a NO Crank issue,
and the stalls, well if the battery drops below 10v the EFI system
stop working just like your lap top does, or CEL phone
and for same reasons.

most folks do a jumper cable crank next. like the AAA tow truck man does first, and for good reasons.
this proves what is wrong,
1: battery was dead (car cranks now)
2: starter dead. or key line dead, if not. cranking now.

my guess is its #1

if battery was dead, then it is
  • bad battery.
  • only discharged, so why not charge it?
  • or phantom drains, (over night parking battery dies)
  • or alternator is dead, (chargelight glowing? test alt.

2010 Tucson Hyundai battery drain somewhere. Changed the battery and alternator and still after sitting for a couple of days it goes dead. Has been in many times for same issue and Hyundai can not seem...


Hi,

we have the same problem. Replaced the battery a month ago and it died yesterday again. The car is at the dealer now. They are trying to blame us for the problem. I have a feeling they know exactly whats wrong, but they are not willing to tell us, since its still under warrenty for 1 month.
Suggestions are;

- the radio might drain your battery, even when its off.
- do you have a homelink? If so, it might be wired the wrong way.

so far thats all i found out by surfing the web.

94 eagle summit started to randomly die for no reason. Then it won't start rite back up rite away. I got a turn up oil change air filter changer full tank of gas belts changed. I drove after then again...


Take the battery out and have it charged. Have a shop test the battery to make sure it is ok. If it died and the battery was dead check the charging system when you get it started again. With a volt meter test across the battery with the engine running. You should have 14.2-14.5v. This indicates the system is charging. If it is in the 12-13v range it is not charging and may need an alternator.

1998 pontiac sunfire manual. Car starts but sputters and then dies and is completly dead but in the morning will start again and then die. I changed the coil pack but still the same. what can it be?


You can't do any testing, until you have a battery
that will take and hold a charge

Then you move on to testing the Alternator,then
Fuel Pressure & continue on with other testing

Our 2007 odyssey the battery died after only one year. Bought new one now four days later car won't start again. We left no lights on or radio, not even the dvd player. What's wrong with this...


Battery might have died cause the altinator is not charging 14+V Please charge the battery, donot boost the dead battery. After charging the battery check the altinator output.

I have just replaced my battery for my 2000 leganza and my car still keeps dying only to not start again like its a dead battery, so i want to replace my alternator. Also my timing belt needs replaced and...


You can have the alternator tested for free at your local parts store...easier if you can drive it to the auto parts store:) Sounds like it is the alternator...in rare cases the starter can have a short that causes this drain...but usually takes overnight...my guess again is the alternator...Is the timing belt scheduled for a change? This repair is not for the meek...Hope this helps.
