Make sure that the alternator is emitting the correct charge, it may well be something as simple as the carbon brushes in the alternator.
That'd be where I would start.
I hope that helps you.

Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't pulling excessive amperage (shorted condition). By replacing the fuse over and over, you might have made the problem worse by subjecting good components to something that was shorted.

BTW next time pick the oldest guy at autozone to help you, if the counter help knew their stuff they would have told you the same thing I just did!

Why when i switched the lights on then car died


Check the output on the alternator.. your battery might be just about dead.. Alternator should put out 14.5 v or more with the engine running, The battery with the engine stopped should read 12V or better.. with the engine running the battery should read almost as much as the alternator output.

How to know if timing belt is bad or alternator is bad


The timing belt is internal to the engine. It is routinely replaced according to the mileage of your vehicle. It is a fairly significant job but if you don't do it it can break and your engine stops. You did not give year make model and engine size so I can't really tell you if you have a zero tolerance motor or not, but if you do you risk bending the valves if the timing belt breaks. Some models have chains and they don't need servicing unless the guides wear out or at real high miles the chain can stretch. (Depending on model usual change mileage is 90-100K)

The alternator is external and driven by the motor with a serpentine belt that runs your power steering, A/C and some models pollution pumps. The alternator is what charges your battery. Most chain parts stores like Napa, AutoZone and Advance will do a free alternator check. Your alternator should put out at least 13-14.5 volts to charge your battery. When the alternator goes bad the car will stop running and you will not be able to start without a jump. After it starts if it cuts off again, the alternator is probably the problem because it can run with out battery power but not without alternator. The car can run for a while with just the battery if it is charged enough, but it will eventually run out of battery power and shut down. There should be a light or gauge that comes on when the battery or alternator is bad.

I have a 2007 impala it will not start no clicking, all the lights come on. When the key is turned lights and radio cuts off, just bought my battery a month ago


Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle, if starts disconnect from boost vehicle, run Impala for a few minutes then disconnect positive on battery, if Impala stops running likely the alternator no good, replace it.

Replaced the k134 car cuts off after engine gets hot. guessing 40 minutes of driving


The battery in most cars is used only for starting and operating electrics when the engine is not running.

After that, the alternator provides power to operate ignition and electric systems - and of course; recharge the battery. A faulty battery shouldn't cause the car to stop running. If the alternator is not functioning properly, the car will get power from the battery instead. When this happens, the voltage will drop quickly - depending on how many electrical accessories are on, etc. You will notice headlights becoming dim at night just before the engine quits. The car would not be able to start / run until the battery is recharged.

I RECENTLY had my engine replaced in my 2001 hyundai Elantra. This 'new' engine supposedly has only 10k miles on it. A new alternator had to be installed.The work was done by the dealer. I have had the...


The odds are the alternator is the problem again. I've installed brand new alternators in the shop that turned out bad. The battery barely had enough juice the crank the car and get it running. Then, the battery was the only thing keeping the engine running with the spark plug until the battery drain completely dead.

If the alternator was working normally, the alternator would have kept the energy up and keep the spark plugs going without the battery's help.

Basically, the battery's job is to start the engine only and the alternator's job is to keep the battery charged and supply energy for the car's needs.

Your problem is either the Alternator isent charging its 13.5 volts and the battery is flat or wont hold the charge SO do this.
Jump start engine again let it run for 2 minutes then turn on lights,, the head lights should go bright at 13.5 volts. it engine cuts out..and the lights dont go bright,, then the Alternator is not charging,,,, If they go bright and still cuts out the batterys NO GOOD.
Replace battery or get it checked outit must hold 12volts all the time Let me know how you get on.

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank


sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

It is your alternator by the sound of it.  You can jump start your car but without a working alternator, you car will not stay running.  Basically, the vehicle is running off of the battery only.  This is a good indication when your radio, lights, and all the 'extras' stop working.  Its a good point to pay attention to these things when you are driving too.  Its a little scary to have the vehicle just stop running when you are still driving!!   Have it towed in, don't try to drive it to a repair shop!
