There are a number of things that may have caused the car to stall, it could be electrical or mechanical issues. If it is because of low idle you may want to adjust the idle control valve or check the vacuum hoses. Ensure that you are getting ample fuel from out from the fuel filter and from the pump other wise you may need to replace the fuel filter or the pump. The best thing you can do right now is use a scanner and get the error code. The car's computer may have detected the issue and would help you resolve your problem

SOURCE: Brake light and battery light are on when car

I would look closely at the charging /electrical system and primarily the alternator.This unit under load should put out 100 amps and maintain voltage over 13.6volts to charge correctly and have the capacity to run all the electrical accessories you have mentioned...

Assuming the engine isnt seized, most likely the starter may be defective. Especially if everything else is operating normally.

SOURCE: running on highway, engine shut off with no

Have someone help you,, open the oil cap and look with a flash light to see if the cam is moving,

It sounds like it could be the timing belt,

If the top end is ok, check fuse for fuel pump and ignition,, there should also be a relay for the pump check to see if its clicking when key is first turned on.

Check for gas and spark,

New battery and camshaft actuator truck is flashing check engine light and shutting off


when the check engine light keep flashing, means a severe misfire it's happening, the vehicle should not be driven to avoid engine damage
I will check the spark in cylinder number one, if good blue spark it's present, then I will check the engine compression just to be sure nothing bad has happened, above 150psi it's good compression
if compression it's good then look into the injectors, engine timing clogged exhaust computer controls.

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...


Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

Alternator light on


The alternator is not producing any power . If it were the engine would run without the battery. Check the wiring on the alternator. It must ave an exciter wire to make it work.
