Question about 2002 Pontiac Montana

2 Answers

2002 Pontiac Montana. Got home turned van off. Went to get in it to go somewhere about 1/2 later it wouldnt start. Jumped it from another car and it started. Let it run a few minutes and turned it of and tried to start it right back up again .... and nothing. Is this the battery ( dont know the age) or the Alt???

    Got home again today, van sat for a little bit and went to start it ..... it wouldnt start. I was taking the battery out to take it to be tested thinking the new one was maybe bad and I decided to try to start it before I actually removed it the van started. Any ideas. ? All connections are tight.

By the sounds of it the altanator is putting out enough voltage to keep the car running I my self don't think that it's the alt but the battery, if you don't know the age than it's not a bad idea to replace the battery. if the problem is still there than I would test the alt, should be putting out 14.6 volt at all times. but replace the battery first.

    IF THE VAN IS STILL STARTING HERE AND THERE TAKE THE CABLES OFF AND USE A WIRE BRUSH AND CLEAN THE CABLES. THERE COULD BE SOME CORROTION IN BETWEEN THE CABLES AND THE BATTERY. TRY THAT LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES GOOD LUCK.

You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

you could have a bad alternator not keeping the system at the appropriate level of charge. Or check the battery, replace with other known battery that is good and see if this fixes the problem. Clean all battery terminals. Dead shorts in battery can really create problems and sometimes can load test good but on the low side. Try the battery swap first if you have access to one

Perfect example of a dead battery. When they go, they go quickly. The plates shed material very gradually over the years. When that material piles up high enough in the bottom of the battery, the battery short-circuits itself--even if it started the car just fine ten minutes prior. Jump start the engine to get home or to the auto parts store. The alternator will supply the power to keep the engine running. (Don't turn off the engine 'til you're back home!)
