1 Answer

I have a 1995 Chevy 2500 2wd that died whole I was driving yesterday and wouldn't restart. I had to have it towed home. It was like things shut off slowly. The radio went first then other components. I am thinking the alternator is bad any ideas on where to start?

Start by charging your battery fully and see how it runs from there, then connect a multimeter to battery and observe voltage as it's running. Make a note of voltage before you start it and watch to see if it drops as truck is running. Try a few accessories like heater etc, to see how bad it draws voltage down. If charging circuit and alternator are good, voltage should maintain or increase. Be sure to look for obvious things first like poor/dirty connections at battery and alternator, as well as belt condition and tension before you go spending money on a new alternator.

No engine light on? Sounds to me like the bumpy road may be knocking something loose. It would help to know if you have fuel pressure when the problem arises.

I have a 98 gmc Jimmy my remote lock battery died so we were unlocking the truck with the key and driving well that lasted only 2 days and the truck died we got a jump to get it home got a new battery...


Getting spark? Power coming from the battery I think you meant to say, if I am correct. If it won't jump start, sounds like a cable from battery to vehicle is not connected. Igniton switch connection or fuse maybe. Check the daisy chaining of the negative battery cable for clean contacts. Also a starter relay could be bad. Just some more suggestions to add. Don't drive to far from home until repaired. Towing cost too much as you know by now.
Never did like remote locks, We as humans seem to be getting more and more depended on convienances that cause us more inconvienances. Could try a positive cable to starter to check if it will turn over the starter. Voltage regulator could cause battery not to charge while driving. When car dies, do lights work or they dim from engine sucking battery dry. Just some suggestions.

Hi Beverly, I believe you may have a problem with the fuel filter or fuel pump. Regards John

I have a 1997 chevy blazer it died yesterday at a 4 way stop the engine just stopped.No engine lights or anything came on.Got it out of the road and after sitting for about 20 minutes I got it to start but...


Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

We have a 2004 6 cyl Trailblazer 4x4. My wife was driving it home yesterday when she said all the lights on the dash came on and speedometer when crazy. It lost all power and shut off as she was driving....


I wouldn't be suprised if it was a bad ignition switch, it's a black switch located underneath the switch you put your key in under the plastic column cover. Sometimes the key will get stuck in the ignition when this happens.

Same thing happened to me. I took it to the dealer, no choice. They told me that it is the engine. Didn't want to hear that, but I guess I have no choice.
