Sounds like the alternator to me.If you have an autozone nearby,they will perform a battery/alternator test for free.Another thing it could be is your serpentine belt.If the tensioner is not pulling it tight,or if it is worn and stretched,that would easily cause it but would probably cause other symptoms which may be so minor,they are barely noticeable,but nevertheless noticeable.It would be weak breaking,a little harder steering,but very rarely gets loose.At least check the belt for tightness before having the test.If you are not sure about it,simple ask the person doing the battery/alternator test if you can get it done.They have decent knowledge and will help so you keep coming back.If you want a second opinion about the belt,go to a AAA approved shop if you are in the USA.They are honest dependable shops.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

What Systems draw power when the car is off?


Have to do a Parasitic Current Drain Test, to find
the circuit with the fault,then component test items
in that circuit

You have a module,relay or other item, not timing out
or going to sleep

You can have failed switches in the doors,failed alternator
diodes,many things that can cause that

Even the Evap System, which on some cars, run tests while
your sleeping, can be at fault

Check for OBD Codes in all Modules, with professional scan tool,
then do the drain test, leaving the doors closed

Car won't start in morning, but after jump runs the rest of the day


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?

I have a 1998 hyundai coupe 1599cc the engine cuts out when idling and i have to jump start it or wait for about half an hour before it will start again


This sounds like a battery or alternator problem.

Lets start with the battery, just because the car starts in the morning does not mean the battery is good, A bad battery will start the car and as car is running and drawing power out of the battery the battery which is getting charged back up from the alternator but if battery is bad and not accepting the charge this will do a few things.
First it will cause damage to the alternator because , the alternator will try to charge the battery with no result and so it keeps charging at high rates and heats up and causes damage to itself , the next thing is battery loses voltage slowly until it does not have enough voltage to keep engine going , inturn engine stalls out,
I would start by first having the battery tested by a shop with a battery tester, the next thing is the alternator , have that tested.

Your problem will be a bad alternator or battery. good day.

starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and

Chevy blazer won't start


Well odds are that your blazer is fixed by now. Either way sounds like a bad battery, that's why you need jumps all the time. Why it would die, there are too many possibilties off hand. So what was wrong with it?
