I would suggest replacing the battery terminal ends with new ones. Cost about $5.00 a pair and make sure you tighten the terminal ends down tight.

I'm driving down the road and my truck dies, i'll jump start it and it goes for a couple of blocks and dies again. i've had the alternator and battery checked and they say they're both ok. any suggestions


It could be that you are loosing a connection to main power on fuse panel but it is unlikely. In most cases if this is happening it is because the alternator is not charging. I know you will say you have had it tested but most testing procedures do not load test the alternator and does not show the amperage output of an alternator, they show voltage. In most cases there is not enough to back up the rate of charge and run the car so it dies again...

Changed belt on 02 trailblazer now it won't start


Belt turns alternator, alternator charges battery.(no belt, no charging) Charge battery with a charger. Though it may start with a jump, the alt is designed to maintain the state of charge in the battery, not to fully charge it . Therefore jumping puts too much demand on alt and can damage it. or will shorten battery life considerably.
