Take it to a garage and pay the $24 to have them install it, they are responsible for the radio codes and any other problem that can occure when changing a battery in the newer cars.

I put a starer and she still wont start all i get is a 'click' sound

Step 1:

First check the starter relay fuse. Replace it even if the fuse looks good.

Step 2:

If you are sure the fuse is not the problem then ensure that the battery if fully charged and is working properly. Turn on the interior light then turn on the headlights. The interior light should dim momentarily then go bright again. If it stays dim check and charge the battery.

Step 3:

If the battery is not the problem, check if the battery is grounded properly. The ground wire is connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Make sure it has a good connection to the engine block, i.e. there must be no rust, no paint and it must be fastened tightly. Also ensure that all heavy connections are tight and secure, as any looseness will cause the clicking sound.

Step 4:

If it still does not start, jump the starter's two heavy solenoid terminals with a screwdriver. FOR YOUR SAFETY THE CAR MUST BE IN NEUTRAL OR PARK WHEN YOU DO THIS because the starter should jump and turn now! The ground is the problem if it turns.

Step 5:

If it still only clicks the solenoid may be faulty. Replace this if you did not get a new solenoid with the starter.

Step 6:

If the solenoid is new then check the neutral safety switch located on the transmission. To find the switch follow the cable from the shifter to the transmission. A faulty switch will prevent the engine from starting.

Step 7:

If all these steps fail you will have to ask a professional to resolve this problem because specialized equipment will be required for perform further diagnostic tests.

How to replace my starter for a 1998 buick regal

Hello spitandspat,

Here is a step by step. As always care must be taken when lifting a car, proper support is necessary.

The starter is on the side of the engine closest to the radiator.

1. Disconnect the battery negative cable and isolate it so it can't make contact with the battery connection.
2. Raise and properly support the car.
3. Disconnect the wires from the starter.
4. Remove the plastic shield from the bell housing to expose the starter bolts.
5. Remove the starter.
Note: If there are shims under the starter you will need to replace them as needed.
Note: Compare the old starter with the new starter before installing are two different starters for this application.

Installation is the reverse of the removal.

How many labor hours will it take to install a new alternator in my jeep grand cherokee?

How to Replace an Alternator (DIY Time: 2.5 hours)
Complexity: Moderate

1. Alternator - $151.95

1. Combination Wrench Set
2. Screwdriver
3. Multimeter
4. Serpentine Belt Tool
5. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
6. Socket Set

Step 1 Open the hood and locate your vehicle’s alternator.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.

Step 2 Using your digital multi-meter, check the battery voltage. A dead battery will usually have less than 9 volts. This would not be enough power to start most vehicles.

Step 3 To verify that your alternator is bad, make sure your battery is fully charged and can pass a load test.

Step 4 With the good battery installed, connect your digital multi-meter across the battery terminals with the engine turned off. A good battery should read between 12-13 volts.

Step 5 Start your engine and read the digital multi-meter’s output. The voltage should rise near 13.5-14.5 volts.

Step 6 Using an open end wrench, disconnect the battery’s negative cable.
o Tip: When disconnecting battery cables, be sure to always disconnect the negative cable first and do not allow it to come in contact with the negative terminal post while working on the vehicle.
o Tip: Wrap the battery cable with a shop towel and pull it away from the battery terminal.

Step 7 Disconnect the power and ground wires on the back of the alternator paying close attention to where each wire connects. Disconnect the wiring harness connector.
o Tip: Check for a loose wiring harness connector, cracked wire insulation, and corroded terminals. Replacing the wiring harness may be necessary.

Step 8 Loosen the alternator bracket bolts, and alternator adjusting bolts or alternator belt tensioner so that you can remove the alternator drive belt.

Step 9 Using the proper size socket and ratchet, remove the alternator mounting bolts, spacer (if equipped), adjusting bolt, lower pivot bolt (if equipped), and the alternator.

Step 10 Install new alternator.

Step 11 Using the proper size socket and ratchet, loosely install the alternator mounting bolts, spacer (if equipped), adjusting bolt and lower pivot bolt (if equipped).

Step 12 Install the alternator belt.
o Tip: When installing the alternator belt, make sure the alternator belt is fully seated in the groove of the pulleys.

Step 13 Pull the alternator until the alternator belt is tight.

Step 14 Tighten the alternator mounting bolts while gently moving the alternator unit to achieve proper alternator belt tension.

Step 15 Reinstall the power and ground wires to alternator. Install the wiring harness connector.

Step 16 Push down in the middle of the alternator belt to check belt tension. If the alternator belt moves more than a half an inch, it is too loose, adjust the alternator belt to proper tension before proceeding to next step.

Step 17 Now that the alternator belt has been installed and adjusted, reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check the battery voltage to verify proper alternator charging.

Step 18 Turn off the engine and recheck the alternator belt tension. Readjust the alternator belt tension if needed.

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

96 SportTrac, started fine drove it and when I stepped on the brake the battery light came on and the truck died, tried starting the explorer it will try to turn over but will not start any ideas

Sounds like the immediate problem is getting the battery up to full charge and/or having it's condition checked, it may need to be replaced. It may be worn out and unable to hold a charge. Then a check of the charging system to verify the alternator is charging the battery. If the charging system isn't working properly it will just drain the battery again. Also take a look at the belt turning the alternator and connections. Ans as always use proper safety precautions when working with the battery. Do you know how old the battery is?
