Van wont start after running


Check your batterie voltage and not it down. Restart your engine and check your voltage again, if you have around 13 volts, your alternator is charching.

I have a 2007 impala it will not start no clicking, all the lights come on. When the key is turned lights and radio cuts off, just bought my battery a month ago


Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle, if starts disconnect from boost vehicle, run Impala for a few minutes then disconnect positive on battery, if Impala stops running likely the alternator no good, replace it.

My van wont start


Alternator isnt the problem, just for charge. First test charge battery, will need 12v to start.

Additionally, I suggest check starter and starter solenoid (if you have one there), ignition switch and aftermarl or antitheft system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

Alternator? Van has been draining batteries and now wont start


Jump start your van, with a volt meter check voltage at battery with engine running and jumper cable disconnected, you will be checking alternator out put voltage there, should have a reading of not less then 13.5 volt's, if less replace alternator, alternator is not hard to replace. two or three bolts is all that holds it in place, don't forget to disconnect battery before removing alternator.

The van has been idling rough for a while now one day it wouldnt start i boosted it and it started and i drove it home turned it off and it wouldnt start boosted it again and it started but still idles...


You need to do a complete tune-up on the van. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace the battery. If not check fluid level in each cell, if low you can fill to correct level with distilled water. then you can charge the battery. Using a volt meter you can check the alternator at the positive post on battery with the van running to see if it is charging correctly. You should have 14.5 volts to 15 volts. check the air filter and replace if dirty. Check the spark plugs and replace old plugs. replace the fuel filter on van. hope this will help you.

Wont turn over


The starter is most likely the problem,tap on the starter lightly with a hammer while trying to start the engine,dont get run over doing this it will take two people,if the engine starts,the starter needs replacing.

Van starts with boost but not withuot


Your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is in good condition, I would suspect the alternator, but you wouldn't be able to drive very far once it was started if this is the case.
