Car keeps dying starting


Try replacing your battery. It takes a lot of power to start your motor but only a little to run lights etc. When you get a boost from another car your using the other cars power to start yours.

Battery died, changed battery and now engine wont crank.


Look for a blown starter fuse or fusible link in your underhood block. Also look for what made it blow.

whilst you are trying to jump start it check if you jump leads are good and powerful enough to sent the power to your battery,check if your battery terminals are clean enough to accept the power given,or is your battery not completely dead and even you are boosting has not the power to increase the needing one to start and is just for lights only?

I hope you dont have an alarm system as they get triggered, your battery needs charging since its completely dead and boosting would not charge any battery, have your altinator check for out put, should be 14V+

Starts with boost then car dies after 1 km and won't start


once the car is started it runs off the alternator .. so even if your battery is bad the alternator will still run the car .. so it looks lilke your alternator is bad .. when you jumped the car you charged the battery a little but not enough to keep it going since the alternator is not charging . if you hook up a charger overnight then you might be able to run it long enough to get somewhere (garage) .. try to drive when you dont need lights .. those will run down the battery in a short time .. if you have a volt meter then the battery should read about 13.8 to 14.2 volts when the alternator is working properly (car running) .. if it reads lower (like 12volts or less) then the alternator is not charging .. some auto parts stores will test your system free ..

All the lights on my 2004 s10 blazer are strobing or blinking


Its most likely the voltage regulator which is most often attached or inside the alternator its a replacable item. Normaly the sighns of an alternator gone are a dying battery.

My car sometimes wont start and when it does it cuts out and dies


Put a voltmeter on battery. It should say something like 12 volts. Start motor and see if you have about 14.5 volts while running. If not your charging system has failed.
