New alternator,battery, starter but battery dies overnight and hard too boost shop tested battery and alternator both check good???


If a good battery is losing charge overnight then it is probably being drained by something left on! The usual areas to look at would be the boot light or glovebox light, check these or anything that might be staying on when the ignition is turned off!

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

Sounds like you have a serpentine belt that has locked up and burnt or broke. Probably due to an accessory like alternator AC, compressor, idler or tensioner failure.

My car was squeaking like a belt.then the battery light came on while driving.it drained the battery


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that you have an alternator belt issue. It was squeaking for the belt is loosen. I strongy suggest that you tighthen it for the alternator to charge the battery. If the alternator belt looks worn then replace it for optimum performance.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Sounds like you have burned a belt off the pulley for the alternator and water pump. Dont drive the car until you have verified the belt is intact and the water pump is turning. Something had to have caused it if it did, I would suspect water pump, alternator, or air conditioning compressor has siezed if your car is equipped with it.

My altenator belt broke but the car will still start what else could be wrong my dad looked at it and thinks it could be a water pump or cracked head gasket


Hi:
Your car will always start with out the alternator belt, as long as the battery is charged. The first thing to figure out is why the belt broke. With the engine cold, and not running, try to rotate all of the pulleys that you can, and see if you can find one that is stiff or binding. It could be the alternator, the tensioner pulley, or something else. If you find the culprit, that is what broke the belt. Once you fix that, you can check out other things. If you had other symptoms, such as overheating or something else, that is another problem, but a broken belt doesnt point to those things yet.
