It sure sounds like a bad bearing in the alternator by your description. Back off the tensioner pulley just enough to remove the belt from the alternator. Hang the belt to the side with a piace of twine or a bungi cord. Turn the pulley on the alternator, it should turn freely and quietly. If it makes ANY sound at all or feels hard to turn it must be replaced. While you've got the belt loose turn the remainig pulleys and wiggle them to check for play. Change any idler or tensioner pulley that makes any noise or has play.

No battery problem either


My guess is that after it ran out of gas, the key was in the forward position for a while and you unknowingly interrupted the antitheft system. Try to reset it.

RELEARN PROCEDURE:
Turn the key on, with the engine OFF.
Try to start the engine, then release the key to ON, Engine will not start.
Watch the security telltale, after about 10 mins, it will turn OFF.
Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes. You must turn the ignition OFF for 30 seconds before attempting to start the vehicle after the 3 cycles. Then start the engine .

When you start your car,it starts by the battery. Then the alternator takes over the rest of the duties,including keeping the battery charged. I would start with having the alternator checked. A bad alternator can have the same symptoms.When you alternator goes bad,it cannot power things like the fuel pump and thus cannot get fuel to the engine.

Does it crank over? The battery you unhooked? It was one of the coach batteries right? It has a single battery for the engine and two for the coach?

Since you put all that work and the symptoms still basically the same, yes is possible that your fuel pump is giving up. If is electric inside the tank you may need to have the expert doit. I could sugest that have a savy mechanic friend or a mechanic to run a diagnostic will help pinpoint more exactly..

Electrical. wont re-start unless cold.


You probably have some corrosion on your battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and connected good and tight.

Car wont start


I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.

You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.
