It sounds like you have a starter that gets locked up when it gets hot.
May have a missing heat shield or a bad starter

I have a 2000 kia sportage wont start unless jumped off. Runs until you kill then wont start without a jump replaced battery and alternator i turn lights on a loud buzz under steering wheel


Check your new battery if it is charged up, sounds like something is draining your battery, or your alternator is not charging properly, check your charging system

2002 Mazda tribute won't start but can jump, car will shut off while driving


you mentioned new alternator and battery, but it seem that the alternator is not charging, when you install the new battery the car started and run and after hours of running specially if head light is on the car shuts down. this is an indication that the alternator is not charging. (factory defect) have it checked or return part to auto supply.
if alternator is good and you have the car jumped and run it will not shut down even if your battery is dead because the charge of the alternator is enough to power the electrical system of the car until you turn it off. this applies to all cars

My 2000 cadillac deville wont start. Battery and alternator good. Trunk or gas door will not open either until I start it. I jump start it and its fine all day until the next morning.


If you can jump start it, then it is most likely the battery. Unless you have had the battery Load Tested, a simple voltage check is not enough to ensure there are enough amps there to start the car, especially on cold mornings. Since you can warm start it and it seems to do well all day, my bet would be a weak or dead cell in the battery.

Wont start unless jump started battery and altenator are good


either the cranking amps on the battery are low or the regulator is intermittent, meaning it is charging then once it warms up it stops charging. I would replace the alternator. Hope this helps Tim

New battery. abs, battery and service engine lights come on. all headlights and tails flicker and car dies and wont start. jump it let it warm up and doesnt do it for awhile. then at some point it does it...


These are all signs of a bad alternator. The car is running off of only the battery. The alternator charges the battery and keeps the car running. When the alternator quits charging the car will run fine until the battery dies. Then you can jump the battery and charge it, and the car will run fine until all of the electronics and lights run the battery down again.

Check fluid in transmission with the car in park AND the engine running AND the engine warmed up. Could be low fluid in the converter.

Also could be a vacuum leak. Check ALL vacuum hoses for disconnection or cracking throughout the engine compartment AND especially any going to the trqansmission.
