Replaced alternator now car won't start

A few days ago the alternator in my Taurus went bad so I replaced it with a new one. Now my car won't start at all. It turns over but it won't catch. It was running fine before the alternator went bad.

2001 ford taurus power draining new battery & new alternater won't work when cables are removed from battery


That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

Why won't my car start with a new alternator and battery


turning over and not firing would indicate your problem is with the fuel delivery. You can do a fuel pressure test with a kit from an auto store or have someone do it for you. You will be checking for one of three things. Bad fuel filter, bad fuel pump or a bad fuel relay.

Why won't my 03 ford taurus start


Who told you the alternator was fine? Sounds exactly like an alternator issue, fuel relay cant stop your dash gauges from working. An alternator should be putting out 13-14.5 wolts with the car running. Do you have any lights on the dash? like a battery light or anything out of the ordinary?

you could have an alternator problem, I am wandering if the serptene belt is on properly or tight. if the belt is slipping and not turning the alternator pulley then it will not charge you battery and if you drive it the new battery will go dead and the alternator is not charging it so it will not start.
i would charge the battery and start the car and watch the belt and the alternator and see if the pulley is turning, they will also make a squelling sound if loose.
hope this helps

Yes....very possible especially if you did not get a new one...remanufactured ones are not guaranteed "new"....but they have new parts. Swap it again.

Buick Century had the same problem...I went through two...failed bearings and busted two belts in 3 weeks.
