    Had to drive thru water( over the bumper deep) to get into the driveway, next morning, car is dead. Took the starter out, cleaned it, freed the bendix and replaced it now the car is totally dead. No lights, heat,no reading on the fuses etc. Battery shows 3/4 charge...Any ideas on what to check?

Hello, I have a 2003 navigator 5.4, 2 days ago warning light came on said check charging system (battery is only 6 months old), then last night went to store and when I came out truck wouldn't


your battery is so dead and or shorted it won't allow enough current to keep the truck running it could be a wire ground or positive not allowing enough current take the battery back to the place of purchase and have it tested it should be under warranty.I wouldn't try to start it by jumping it anymore try a fresh hot battery I think it will fix it

Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change


the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Battery is dead and wont start


Make sure the battery is fully charged before trying again. If the battery wont charge get a new one. Once installed use a multimeter to verify that the alternator is charging.

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls


alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

sorry, but it sounds like the altenantor not the battery. most autoparts stores will test them for free, but you'll have to take them out yourself. goodluck
