Jump atart the car or charge the battery to get it running again. With the engine running, check the battery with a voltmeter. Should be around 13.5 to 14.0 volts. If significantly less, I would suspect alternator or wiring. Also check the lone fat red wire coming off the positive battery terminal for corrosion - replace the eyelet if it doesn't look clean.

    If the car is running and you have 14.7 Volts, I'd say you don't need an alternator. Was it the jump start that got the car running?

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

I try to start my dodge neon 2002 and it makes a clacking or ticking noise but wont start


You probably have a bad or failing battery. Will it jump start and continue to run OK?

Car wont start


It sounds like the Belt was too loose and was not allowing the Alternater to Charge the Battery. I would Jump the Car off just long enough to get to the Mechanic and have the Belt, Alternator, and Battery Checked out In addition to the Radiator.
