Replace the battery, and all problems should be resolved. If the battery in car is older than 4 years old, this should be only thing to replace. If the vehicle runs either by replacing the battery, or jump starting, and dies soon after or within a few days, then the alternator will need to be replaced. Battery is most likely cause.

Let me know,

    Hello Chip,
    Thank you so much for your helpful reply, the garage have taken it away to fit a new battery and check if there was something draining it since it packed in so suddenly. Should be back on the road tomorrow.

Wont start at all

There are some basic diagnosis tips to determine the issue causing you car not to start.

I am willing to bet that you have a dead battery. A dead battery will dim the lights when you try to turn on the ignition and engage the starter. If this happens and the starter clicks, or does nothing at all, then you have a dead battery.

If the battery is charged and you are not hearing anything, you may have a starter or starter wiring issue. Run a volt meter to your starter solenoid and check for proper amperage.

I have a dodge ram b250 1994 needed a new batt went and bought one after i put it in the van is completely dead no lights no nothing so its not the batt checked all the cables even put the old batt in...

I have found that sometimes if the starter wire that is attached to the starter is loss it can cause you to have no electric power to anything. Hope this helps. Also Check all fuses inside and outside the vehicle. But first check the starter wires. They can be found going from the Hot post of the battery down to the starter. Hope this helps.

My prelude wont start for anything

if the battery is good and this happens, usually the starter is dragging internally, a new starter will fix this, starter normally comes with a new solenoid.

2005 dodge neon--while car is going up grade all of a sudden she went dead--no sputter just dead---nothing happens when key is turned--no clicks...using a ohm meter i found the under the hood 30amp starter...

It could be a bad starter.
And a dead short within the starter would cause the fuses to blow as you mentioned.

I would pull the starter off, and take it into a local parts store to be tested.
If it does pass, you have taken that part of the problem out of the equation, and can begin looking for other causes.
