It could be a few things there could be a leak in the fuel line causing the engine not to get fuel. It also could be a fuel filter that is very clogged. Try these first.

Why won't my car start with a new alternator and battery


turning over and not firing would indicate your problem is with the fuel delivery. You can do a fuel pressure test with a kit from an auto store or have someone do it for you. You will be checking for one of three things. Bad fuel filter, bad fuel pump or a bad fuel relay.

How can I test my alternator?


you could do 1 of 2 things, 1 use a volt meter to test how many volts it is putting out, or 2, the old fashion way if you dont have a volt meter, start the car and while it is running disconnect the battery if the car stays running the alt is ok, if the car dies then chances are you need a new one

Whenever, you replace a battery, it is a good idea to have the alternator checked to make sure that it is producing enough amperage to run the vehicle and charge the battery.

Suggest you take your car to an auto parts store and ask them to test your alternator under load. That is the most likely problem, your alternator.

Went to store car would not start check gauges light came on battery showed low, but has a 4 month old new battery.


Either you left a light on for a while, commonly headlights and dome lights, or the alternator is bad.

Get a jump start and run the engine for a while, it should charge the battery if it was just you left the lights on.

If the car won't stay running, take a trip to Autozone and have them test your alternator (don't worry, it's free and can be done in the car if you would rather tow the car than try to remove the alternator).

bad alternator. happened to me in a big puddle. go to the parts store and they'll test it for free. you're running the car off of the battery. you will kill the battery if you keep going. the alternator is a pain to get out/in because there are several things in the way that must be moved. $100-$150 for the part, 1-3 hours to do it. have the battery tested after you're done. good luck!

SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED BOTH THE ALTERNATOR AND THE STARTER TESTED.THE CAR SHOULD STAY RUNNING OFF THE ALTERNATOR ONCE BOOSTED,IT SHOULD START OFF THE BATTERY WHEN FULLY CHARGED.

Won't hold a charge


its the battery. the battery holds the charge and the alternator charges it so when you jump the car it stays running because you alternator is providing power when you shut the car off you have a bad battery that isnt holding the charge needed to start it again.

Car was running fine all day yesterday. Went to


check your battery cable connections. Remove cables from post, clean with post cleaner, $3 at Kmart, Sears, auto store.
If that is not it, have auto store test battery (for free) after you charge battery. You could have a shorted cell in the battery.
Check to see if battery is being charged by alternator this way:

  • Test battery voltage with volt meter. It should read about 12 1/2 volts. (Engine off).
  • Test battery with engine running. It should read about 14 volts if the alternator is putting out.
Hopefully it's just dirty battery connections.

If this solves your problem, please rate as fixya. And, good luck. Report back results.
