Most likely a faulty alternator. If the battery is flat you, have just halved its life expectancy. Recharge your battery. Make sure all battery and alternator connections are clean and sound.

Get a multimeter, start the car and see what the alternator is charging at, across the battery terminals. It should be charging at over 13.3V to a high of 14.7V. If not replace the alternator.

Check out you alternator! It needs to be putting out around 14v. also check out your starter relay, Those things tend to go out with no warning at all.

A dead battery would have given you problems starting before anything else. (unless all you did was recharge it, then anything goes.)
If battery is new , I recommend you take the vehicle to a repair shop this way they can pull the tires off and see whats holding the brakeswhile they are applied.

When I start the car, it just makes a fast clicking noise like the battery is dead and would not turn over. I can stop and try it again and the car starts right up, sometimes. The battery had some major...


Sounds like your alternator to me. The alternator is not charging the battery so when you drive it, the battery is being drained. It can die even while you're driving. I would get the alternator checked and get a new one if necessary

Replaced battery and now SUV skips?


When you replaced the battery, you erased the computer memory. Drive it for awhile until the computer learns how to run again, it will be fine.

Car started fine..stopped, no restart, no click, dead lights on.


try getting a boost for your car.... the battery may be failing. it doesn't take alot of power to turn on the lights... but a huge drain on the battery to start it. if it will not start with a boost i could very well be that the starter has failed. as you attempt to start it... have someone tap the starter with a hammer. if it starts... replace the starter.... if it starts normally with a boost you likely need a new battery
