You first have to make sure the alternator has not failed. Try to fully charge the battery and see if the truck will start. If it starts, remove the battery cables making sure they don't touch the vehicle. If the truck shuts off, the alternator has failed. If it remains running, turn on the head lights along with other accessories. If it shuts off, the alternator still may be weak and needs replacing. Lastly, have the battery load tested to ensure that it still holds a proper charge.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

I was driving down the freeway the gauges started not working then working, then the car died. The car starts over and over again but only for a second then dies. Every time I start it the rpms go up then...


Sounds like you have an Alternator problem. Take off the alternator and take it to an Auto parts store to get tested. It takes 1 minute.. If it doesnt work you found the problem. If it doesn't then you might have to look at the harmonic balancer ( Crank Shaft pulley). make sure its not slipping. if so the key broke and its not spinning the alternator correctly. Need to either replace the pulley or the key.
