Intermittenly wouldnt start for 6 years. would start while cycling the key until it started now it shutoff while driving now wont start after cycling the as few hundred times


the problem may be a bad ignition switch. 50% of the time the switch goes bad and then no spark! to starter. the swich will cause system wide problems. will not stay running and stall out. when a switch fails, power to battery will be cut off, this is what causes the stalling.

Stalls out while driving


it is very possible you fried your alternator. You need to get the system tested. When jumping another vehicle you can't rev your engine like people tend to do with an actuall alternating system.

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls


alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it started fine but only runned for a few minutes and the engine started to stall and went off. tried to start it again and it wont turn with the same...


okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

No power to dash or dome light in 2003 jeep tj.


As far as the guage issue it is most likely a problem with the body control module, have a trouble code test run on the BCM to determine the issue, the stalling is caused by the loss of the idle strategy learning when the battery went dead, the best thing to do is the following procedure I use to clear this issue.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls (or very low idle) near or at idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
