I just had the same problem' I hate to say.... but it's the PCM under the hood on the drivers side. It manages the voltage of the charging system circuit internally, and originally I thought it was the alternator B/C it was putting out around 20V. The only good news is that I found out finally that the motor (2.0L 4Cyl non turbo) was Chrysler/Dodge common and will swap out with the Sebring - Avenger - Neon 4Cyl motors from '98 to '99. These motors are very specific to this PCM so check your facts first but I finally got it from Orielly's Auto Parts store w/ 3 day ground shipping for around $150.00.... Good Luck

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

If the battery is completely dead, you'll need to slow charge it for a few hours before trying to use a jumper battery. And you could have something shorted to ground in the car that drained the battery in the first place.
Try disconnecting the battery cables and using a battery charger to bring the battery back to life first.

RECENTLY HAD MY CAR JUMPED BECAUSE I LEFT THE HEADLIGHTS ON. NOW MY RADIO ISN'T WORKING. DID I FRY THE RADIO AND COULD A REPLACEMENT RADIO FIX THIS OR COULD THIS ALSO BE AFFECTED BY THE WIRING?


When jumping, or anything else electrical on a vehicle, always connect negative LAST. You could have fried the fuse or the radio. Check fuse first. On newer vehicles jumping is dangerous and can cause system failure.

OLder cars YEs you can jump it without a battery. But in newer cars that use computers and advanced Eltronic ignition/timing/ful injection you have to have power to the cars computer. without a good battery the car will not run.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

Battery dead this morning...just got a couple of clicks. the light and radio work. got a jump and drove it for 40 min. wont start again


More then likely a bad cell in the battery, so it won't hold a charge, jump it and go to any auto parts, they will check the battery and alternator for free, I don't think it's the alternator, due to you drove it for 40 min with no trouble, if it was the alternator, the car would have turn off on you while driving it.Most of these auto parts will also install the battery for you for free.

1 have a 1986 caddilac deville i have to jump start it everyday it runs fine after the jump start but soon as i cut the car off it wont start anymore until i jump it again what do you think is the problem


Have you checked your battery???
A bad battery will not hold a charge. When you jump it to start it it will then keep running on the power produced by your alternator.The alternator will be trying to charge your battery but will not be able to if your battery is bad.

Battery went dead, Jump started but now check engine light on


First, you need to determine why the battery went dead...put a volt meter across the battery terminals and verify that it is making above 13v and less than 14v while running. Also, the alternator is designed to maintain the state of charge in a battery, it will never fully charge it. To avoid overtaxing the alternator and shortening the live of the battery, always re-charge with a battery charger after needing a jump.
(doing this about every two/three months will extend life of battery...makes up for time spent listening to radio etc with engine off)

Hi
Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.
