It appears that your alternator is not charging so that the battery has been totally discharged. A boost start got you going again but with no charging as you drive it was only a matter of time for any slight charge to be used up. To get you going again temporarily have another vehicle give you a boost but leave their vehicle connected for at least 15 minutes with their engine running at a fast idle. This shiuld give you about 1 hours running providing you dont turn off the engine. Have the alternator output checked by an auto electrician.

2006 Chevy Cobalt power dying with new battery in it, is it the starter?


If the car died while you where driving it, it sounds like it is the alternator. Did it start right up or did you have to boost it? If you had to boost it to start it again,I would say it is the alt., but if it started right away w/o a boost, it is something else.

Hello my name is becca i have a 2000 hyundai accent it was fine one night the next day i went out to start it it wouldnt got a boost it started but once the ground cable was taken off it died in seconds...


Batteries sometimes die completely for no apparent reason even though they were working fine only hours beforehand. Try another / new battery and get the alternator fuse checked, because it should not be obviously split, and replaced if necessary because with the fuse out, the battery will not be recharged. The alternator charging rate appears to be OK but have it checked anyway.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
