My car has stalled while driving before and after leaving the shop. When i get the battery charged and put it back in my car starts fine but stalls when the battery runs out of juice. Ive had my alternator...

What's the voltage at the battery with the car running ? Testing an not guessing is the way to do proper diagnostic's ! Battery light staying on , is there B+ voltage at the alternator connection's ? A new alternator won't make a bit of difference if no power to the alternator . Looking at a wiring diagram an testing the electrical circuit ,doing voltage drop testing , plus checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Some vehicle's charging systems are computer controlled . And looking at a wiring diagram i see your vehicles charging system is computer controlled . If you have done so already , take it to the dealer

The car will not start. Battery is charged. I turn the key and get a single click and a slight hum for about 3 seconds. All the lights stay on except the radio when i try to turn the car on. Ive cleaned...

could be the starter motor solenoid is stuck the click can be the the ignition relay and the hum is the fuel pump. sometimes works if you hit the solenoid with the a hammer then try to start the engine if this work then change the starter motor or have it fixed.

I want to replace the throttle control sensor, and I want to know if I unhook the sensor is that gonna cause a computer malfunction or should I take off the terminals to the battery?

Repair manuals always say to take the negative terminal off before working on electrical parts. You only need the negative off, not both.
Actually, it wouldn't cause a malfunction (unless it maybe had a bad short), although it might set a trouble code. But that could be erased. I have heard that many mechanics are reluctant to take battery offline on lots of newer cars, unless absolutely necessary, due to issues with computer re-learning processes. When the car leaves the shop, customers complain the car is not running right, but if battery was disconnected, the computer may require several drive cycles to re-learn its former performance.

Sometimes doesnt fireup after i turn the engine off after ive drove it a mile or two

I would look at the battery, cables, alternator and belt system all as possible issues. What happens when you start turning on electrical items? The headlights, wipers, heat on high and defrost? If it all stays working while its running, I'd lean towards the battery being the issue, that's not a definitive test, just a good guide as "in general". Please get back to me with more questions, answers and most importantly, results! Thanks and good luck!

Where is the battery location of a 2008 BMW 528i

It's not where you might think it is. The battery is actually in the trunk, mounted in a deep well covered by a lift-up panel. The 135i has run-flat tires, so there's no spare, jack or inflation kit. chances are if your gonna dissconect battery the anti theft system is gonna lock your radio where you need a code to unlock it and it will make your car need codes from dealer

How safe is it to keep running the car until I can get a new alternator once the battery light comes on

not very safe,when the battery runs out of power the car will die,doesnt matter where you are,could be on the highway or at a light in town,and it will also shorten the life of your battery if you drain it down all the way

My battery wont keep its charge or charge properly ive tested the

Go to an auto parts store and buy a load tester for the battery. It doesn't cost much and sometimes if you bring the battery there they will test it for you with a load tester. It may have a dead cell which won't allow it to hold a charge or put out enough power. If you need a battery, some shops will install them for free. Good luck.

Heater motor not working/radiator fan problem

Easier to buy a new motor. Especially if your gonna go threw all the trouble to take the old one out to repair it.
Fan runs all the time because either the coolant temperature sensor is defective or the relay or circuit is shorted/ defective.

2000 Dodge Ram cargo van trouble starting and once started will not keep running tried jumping battery and no change what should we try next?

Sounds like the alternator is bad (not charging). If your battery is good/charged it should run until the battery is drained. If the battery is bad/not charged the car will die as soon as the cables are taken off as there is not enough juice to run the ignition system. If the alternator is good (but battery bad) the car would still run as the alternator makes power to run the car but becasue the battery is dead/drained there is no power to start the car (hense needing the jump). Have the alternator/charging system tested

Battery draining fast

I would check the alternator again, it apparently isn't charging the battery with engine running. You need a volt meter or amp meter to test this. Also does the battery discharge when the car is not running?
