The Alt is okay but the battery won't keep a charge? Replace the battery. At least take it to an auto parts store, and have them do a load test.

Your fuel pump is electric. When you turn the key on it pumps up. After it has developed the needed pressure, it no longer pumps, hence you won't hear it working anymore.

Diagnose your problem going through the various systems. Right now you have a problem with the starting system. It sounds like, from your explanation, that the battery is bad.
If your battery checks out, and then you have the alternator checked out, you have an electrical drain. This may be tough to find.

After you replace your battery, wait 10 minutes, then try to start your Camaro. If it doesn't start, (Key to the Off position), take the Positive battery cable loose. Wait 2 minutes, then reconnect it. You are resetting the computer.

1996 nissan maxima starts and runs great, a couple days later it wont' start, finally it will start, jumping battery does not help, but car runs great if and when it starts


I suggest that you take the starter motor to an accredited auto electrician as it indicates a dry joint problem in the armature bars
the fix is
the bars can be re-soldered
or My preference -- a new armature

Car dies while driving


Look at the battery cables. Sometimes if the ground wire is loose, it wil display the same symptoms that you have described to me. If they are tight and free of corrosion then look towards the ignition relay or key switch. Key switch would be a likely candidate. Keep me posted please.

2001 Camaro 3.8L - Cranks but wont fire like no spark or fuel


try having your wiring harness checked also get your trottle positioning senser checkedit could be that your wiring harnesses have a dry rotted break in them and one is making contact and shortingout that is why when you unplug the battery for a little while and then when you plug it back up the computer reads the problem has been repaired until you go down the road and hit a bump that causes any kind of movment that makes the wires to move then your problem starts again.
