I would suspect that the problem is with the charging system not charging the battery, as opposed to the battery being bad.

1986 Lincoln Town car 5.0 intermittent stalling problem, usually while driving. fuel pump?..please advise! Thx!


It appears you may have a bad ignition coil that cuts out after it gets hot. Not uncommon.

Wont start for 10 min


Have your charging system tested and include the Battery. Go to Autozone.com ,register your vehicle for free, get free wiring diagrams and Fusebox layouts. Have a starter draw test done.

Check the relays for the fuelpump, ignition, and PCM. Sometimes the horn relay can be the same part number and be interchanged.

What you are describing can be many things. You have more compression in a hot engine, you have different timing in a hot engine because vehicles run so lean today. The O2 sensors may be keeping the engine too lean to restart after a warmup. Relays can overload when hot and kick out the connections. Your fuelpump can be failing.

You did not indicate how far you drive when this happens. If you are driving 10 miles a weak battery will not recharge, but a 100 mile trip gives it more opportunity. The starter draw test will tell if the starter is bad. The starter may cool down overnight, but frequent restarts may heat the starter with it failing.

Anti lock light on.


Check your battery connection. My toyota did the same thing and it was created by a loose battery connection.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

Mini one warning lights


This is the flat tire light. either your tires are low on pressure or the flat tire light button is stuck down. if your tires are low refill to same pressure I usually use 35 psi. then start the car stay parked. depress the flat tire button located either under the ebrake or just to the right of the ebrake. hold for 10 sec. then drive car for 5-10 min do not drive hard. drive on normal roads 25 -35 mph then drive on the highway. If the button is stuck find some kind of electrical cleaner and just keep trying to clean it till it no longer sticks down.
