These are items which you replace, not repair. You choice is buy new, or exchange yours for rebuilt or remanufactured units, or buy used. New expect to pay well over $100, rebuilt over $50, and of course you can buy working used ones from junkyards for about $20. You get what you pay for, I never buy a wear item used. Fenders and windows OK, but not anything like this. Look on and you can find videos of folks changing these. Important to electrically isolate the battery from the car, before you begin.

    I will definitely take your advice on buying new. You tube was a great idea. This my first time using this service. I was actually trying to find some free online diagrams, but the Chiltons is only $20 at the parts store. I'll remember to disconnect the battery.

Where is the alternator fuse in a 2008 dodge avenger?

What size engine ? Could have came with three different one's ! 2.4 , 2.7 , 3.5 L Has a fusible link , do you know what that is ? The heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator should have battery voltage . Check it with a volt meter , easier then checking at the starter , because the wire comes from the main power feed from starter . This charging system is computer controlled , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair . How to test an alternator Chrysler Dodge Jeep

1997 monte carlo new battery and alternator but will only start when jumped

starter might be internally shorted or binding up causing the starter to require more amperage to turn. have a mechanic perform a starter draw test on it or take it off and have it tested. if you are going to have it tested take it to a good alternator/starter repair shop. autozone and oreillys cant simulate engine load and if its binding because of a bad bearing on the armature shaft, with out engine load it will test good

1985 nissan 300z wont crank

When you switch the ignition wont start or crank, right? but did you hear a tikiting sound? if you do then the problem was your starter, either the solenoid in your starter was faulty or the starter itself might be grounder or shorted.Replace the solenoid if deffective or starter but before you do that check your battery.
Next is to check your electrical line from the ignition to the starter and also from your battery going to the starter, if there is a connectivity it means your line is good.
Next you said it has to be push to start and run but when you shut it off it wont start? It means your alternator was not charging properly, so it was deffective, the battery lost its power. replace or repair your alternator.
Hope this will help you, good luck!!!

I have a 2000 Ford WindStar that will not start. The lights and electronics all come on so I am not 100% convinced it is a Battery. Aside from the battery where should I look for the problem. Starter,...

Your not on a fishing trip

If you suspect the battery,charge it fully and have it tested

For the starter,starter solenoid,you need experience in how to test

The Alternator has nothing to do with starting the vehicle

Education and a really good, close by repair shop,before you need one

My 2003 passat won't start. Put new battery in. Just won't turn over.

Have you tried checking out the starter? Take the starter out and go to an auto parts store or a alternator-starter repair shop and have them test it.

It takes several attempts to start my 2002 C240 -

the whole repair should be covered under the ESP. It may be the ignition switch itself in the steering column or the starter solenoid. Some solenoids are remotely mounted from the starter others are an integral part of the starter.
