It may be a wire on the alternator.

    I am having similar problems . As I was about to replace the coil I noticed that the hot terminal of the coil was close to a radiator flange that would expand to the coil terminal as the radiator heated and short it to ground..

Car won't start


Anything is possible, but I doubt the new battery has failed.
Chances are the alternator is not charging the battery.
The alternator should be able to power the headlights and engine once it starts.
You also need to know why the battery went dead overnight.

It's either a bad alternator, or a wiring problem from the alternator to the battery. If this was at all helpful, please rate. Thanks for asking.

My car doesnt start in cold weather and unless boosted. had the battery checked and the alternator checked all was good. changed the negative batter terminal clamp. could it still be the battery.


It could still be the battery, if it has a weak cell and depending on how weak it is, it may or may not show up on the test. Get a battery with a higher cold cranking amps than the one you have now. If there is no other problem that should cure it.

Engine whistling when cold in morning


Your alternator is drawing alot of power trying to charge the battery.Try tightening the belt.That should fix your problem..The reason the alternator is whistling so much on cold starts is because thats when it takes the most power from the battery to start the car.And the noise from the alternator is it charging it back up..So I'd try tighting the belt that will fix the smell and watch for the battery light or alternator light in the dash come on the could be your alternator failing and you dont want that to happen..I hope this helps you fix the problem.Have a great day...

Mazda etude alternator genarting excessive heat


1st off you would give everything a good visual examination. Look for loose alternator belt. Also look for wires that could have become disconnected or cut that leads to the alternator.

Then you would hook up a volt meter to the battery cables and check the voltage.
After this you would start the engine and recheck the voltage. The voltage on a charged battery should read around 12.5 volts. While the engine is running turn on a few accesories and speed up the idle a little the voltage should read around 14.5 volts.

If the voltage does not increase suspect either a faulty alternator or regulator.

Seems to be electrical problem


What initiated the need for jump starting? Is the alternator charging? Has the battery been checked?

To check the alternator, once the engine has been jumped and is running, remove one of the battery post connections. If the engine dies, the alternator is not charging the battery, and the symptoms you describe are the on-board computer going through low voltage spasms until sufficient electrical power to operate the engine / tranny is drained and the car dies.

If the car continues to run with no battery attached, the alternator is charging - - - and I would recommend removing the battery and having it checked and (if good) recharged to full capacity. I would also recommend having it charged even if the alternator is the problem just to delay the onset of the low voltage problems. The car should operate normally for a few miles before the battery drains too low after a full recharge, enabling you to get it to a shop for alternator service / replacement.

If you attempt replacing the alternator yourself, make sure the battery is disconnected prior to starting the job. Saves blowing up good stuff by accidental short.

Hope this helps and good luck!

-WB.
