Sounds like a fuse or two got blown! Did you disconnect the battery when replacing the alternator? If not, I think that may be the problem. If you did, I'd still check the fuses.

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.


Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

Half of my radio blacked out. What is wrong?


Does the radion still work and is fully functional other than the lights? If so it's just the bulb inside the radio and no big deal, but a pain to replace or fix.

I OWN A 1998 BUICK REGAL AN THE WINDOWS AN RADIO STOPED WORKING OUT OF THE BLUE, I BELIEVE THERE IS A SHORT BECASUE OCCASIONALLY THE WINDOWS AN RADIO WOULD STOP WORKING AN THEN WORK AGAIN, WE HAVE CHECKED...


I am going to explain something rather weird and some people will even say what's the difference. In your case it would be all thwe difference in the world. A "short" in a car will cause fuses to blow. An intermittent open in a car will cause things to operate only when they gt power. You have an open. There are more things wrong with the car you just haven't noticed them. The accessory position on your key feeds several spots on your fuse panel and in some cases is even split to feed multiple spots on the fuse panel. Take a piece of wire and run it from your battery positive to your radion fuse on the radio side. Pull the radion fuse, turn on the key, and check which side of the fuse socket has power. The one that doesn't is the radio side. Pu the wire there. radio should start working now. Cut this wire. The next time your radio dies, tie this wire together to see if the radio comes back on. Start there.

Something is killing the battery, had alternator rebuilt, and wiring check for alternator/battery connection.. when driving without radion on and lights indicator stays at full point, but with lights on...


your actual battery itself could be shot it is a common problem if battery has ever died or is old. i recommend replacing the battery before any more work is done.
