Runs fine for how long? Is battery dead when car quits? If you jump it, will it immediately restart? Inspect fusible links on top of battery housing. You will probably find some burning/overheating there.

You may have fried the fuseable link that comes off of the positive battery terminal. Disconnect it from the post as well as the negative cable from the battery. Check the continuity along the length of the cable anywhere thrre is no continuity the link has blow, replace it or the entire cable.

start the car and pull off on side of the battery and if the car shuts off your alternator is bad if the battery wont stay charged its the battery .If you have a meter check the voltage to the battery it should be around 14.3 volts .

I have changed both the alternater and starter


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

STALLS WHEN BATTERY CABLE IS PULLED GOOD ALTENATER AND BATTERY


If the vehicle stalls when you pull the battery cable loose from the battery the alternator can not be good because the car would stay running. You have an issue with the charging system, Possible voltage regulator which is in the alternator. Have the alternator taken of the van and tested a the parts house.

My car did cut off @ the stop light but it started back up & it didnt cut off again?? I understand that someone said that it could be the alternater..but im just still tryin to figure out could it...


A LOOSE WIRE AT THE IGNITION COIL OR ALTERNATOR.CAN CAUSE CAR TO DO A QUICK STALL.NOW IF ALTERNATOR BAD YOUR BATTERY CHARGE LIGHT WILL COME ON. ALSO THE CAR WOULD LOSE ALL ELECTRICAL POWER THE BATTERY WOULD BE DEAD.THE CAR WONT CRANK. YOUR ALTERNATOR OUT PUT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH CAR RUNNING.IF NOT.YOU HAVE ALTERNATOR PROBLEM.NOW WHEN YOUR CAR STALL OUT YOU GOT IT STARTED BACK.YOU COULD HAVE BAD FUEL THAT WILL ALSO STALL YOU OUT.

If the engine is turning over and it still wont start try shooting a little starting fluid in the air cleaner to see if it will run .. if so your fuel pump is either bad or the fuel filter is getting dirty.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry

The car wont take a complete charge


If able, ck the charging voltage at the battery. The alternater should be charging the battery between 13,6 to 14.2v. The lower the voltage the more its charging. Make sure both battery cables are clean and tight. Good Luck.
