98 firebird, all dash lights quit working while i was driving it, and when i killed it it wont start back up

Sounds as if you may have burnt out a fusible link. They are usually located in the + side of circuits near the battery or near the starter motor. You can test them with a voltmeter.

Chevy tracker alternator

Sounds like a bad connection or a bad battery cable. Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?
Yes the engine should crank if the battery is charged no matter what condition the alternator is in.

I have a 200 F150 the alarm has a problem when i drive lights blink on off dont stop when i trun off the truck light switch wont trun lights off i take battery cable off . how do i reset the alarm thanks...

Google all the windshield leaking issues on those thrucks

The water comes down the A pillar & into the top couple
relays inside the cover on the left side of your lower dash
by your knee & turns on relays & sometimes kills the GEM
Module, which is fords wording for body module from 96 or 97
thru about 03. No one in the world ever used that term but ford

What happens is that the blower turns on & kills the battery,
or other delayed accy relay related issues

That may or may not be your problem

The only body function that is tied to the pcm, is the PATS or alarm,
all other body functions are gem & relay related by themselves

The alarm you turn the key on & off 3 times I believe & you will
see a dash light stop blinking

I have a 99 Intrepid and it wont start. There is no power to the dash(nothing). Battery is 1 year, Starter new. With boost cables, dash lights up, but car only clicks.

battery is dead again let it charge longer then try it.
clean your cables and then have the alt and battery checked if they are both good then something is staying on like mine my brake lights stayed on once and killed the battery
good luck

Replace blown fuses. Now why did the fuse blow ? I found plenty of dimes in the cigarette lighter socket. Rear ones too. Hope it helps

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over

Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
