Probably a short in the starter windings. Solution would be to replace the starter.

White smoke, battery wont hold a charge


If your battery is bad, you can jump start it sometimes but it's running off your alternator...After doing this many times it will kill your alternator also..You can go by almost any auto shop and they will check your battery and alternator free...But it sounds like the battery

I boosted my hummer he with the key on,now my altornator light on,wen i take the battare cable off it dies,is the a fuse or did i burn a line to the starter?


the alternator stator is fried along with other internal parts since jumping the vehicle. Always disconnect the alternator when jump starting. That is why it dies out. Replace battery and alternator to run correctly

Replaced battery. still would not start. Cleaned treminal of all corrision. cranked fine. however 1 day later would not start. jump started . drove a couple of miles but when I turned on lights, engine...


Sounds like a bad alternator. Drained your battery and when you turned on the lights it took all the power left in your battery. When you drain a battery down that far, they are real hard to jump, and coupled with the alternator, the car is not producing enough current to start and stay running.

I would take the alternator off and take it to oyur local auto parts store to be tested. If bad, replace it and charge the battery fully before starting. Then check voltage at battery with motor running. Should be 13.2 -14 Volts DC. If not, you may have a bad battery cable or blown fusible link. (especially that if the alternator tests good).....Mike

Car wont start. tried to jump but engine will not


Hi,
There may be another possibility... there are safety switches which would also prevent a switch actuating a starter. If the vehicle is not fully registered in park or neutral, the switch will not allow the starter to work.
Check this first.
If this isn't the case, have the starter pulled and get Autozone to check it for you.
I don't think the alternator's a factor here.
I hope this helps... Good luck.

1995 toyota camry makes a clicking noise when trying to start it


Is battery dead ? Can you jump start? If you can get it started by jumping it, take it to your local auto parts store and ask them to check your battery and alternator. They will usually do this for free.

Car won't start, battery power loss could it be the alternator?


Alternator should have better than 13.5v output with all accessories on including headlamps.Check with volt meter right at battery terminals (running) If not it's not working properly. Doubtful from what you have said that starter is bad. Also check that terminal connections are clean and tight on battery.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Sedan: Starter, alternator, both, or otherwise?


Clicking??? Probably starter/alternator. does the starter turn? The clicking, is that all you get when you turn the key? Have the battery checked and make sure its holding a charge. If battery holds a charge, its time to have your alternator tested, if the alternator checks, then the clicking may be the starter/soleniod. Places like autozone will check the battery/alt for free, provided you can still drive to get there.
