    when i start the car a few of the lights flash. nothing else works. the car doesnt turn clicking...nothing. the battery is 2 years old and is a good one. would this point to the alternator? are they expensive and can if it is the alternator can i replace it myself? i have very little money and need my car.

    Thanks for your response!!

    I would be glad to work on this with you till the issue would be resolved. Before i start, let me ask few details :-

    1. Have you Inspected and Tested Battery? ( You mentioned it, but wanted to re confirm )
    2. Have you checked the starter motor?
    3. Have you checked Ignition Switch?

    These are the basic 3 things that would cause the car not to CRANK. After this, we would move on to few more steps like Alternator or Vehicle security system or even ECM.

    Let me know,once done.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    luckily i broke down at a gas station that was next to a firestone. the manager from firestone came over and had jumper cables and a portable battery. he said that he would get the electrical system checked and then put the cables on . the first time i tried to start the car it didnt. he said to wait a minute and then it started. i came home and left the car running. i told my husband the story and he got mad and shut the car off and now it won't start. i'm trying to figure out what to do. im sorry im not entirely helpful here. i know very little about cars.

    I understand your concern.However, i could only guide you. I do not want you to buy an alternator and later on, it would be a starter motor. These are the basics which have to be diagnosed as there could be many reasons for the same.

    I would be glad to write the instructions or post videos ( could try ) of the same. However, these needs to be inspected before you jump on alternator.As i cannot inspect your car, i am bound to write all the steps from start.

    Let me know,once done.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
