My car went of a little bump today and 2 min later it just went stiff and then it died it was turning but nothing was going. the battary is fine and so is oil. someone that was there told me tht it may have to do with the gas tank and the pipes going frm it that one of them may be plugged or something. Thanx.. I appreciate your help.

a healthy battery will take a charge and discharge and be o k -you have several things going on-the ticking noise is some kinda rely that is turning on and off probably because of low voltage-the voltage jumping around sound like the alternator is giving up and is not fully charging battery-you may also have a drain on the battery that doesn't stop when you turn the key off like an extra power amp for the radio- you can take your car to autozone or advanced auto and they will check out the charging system for free and tell you what is going on-cheers Denny
at a guess i would have a look at the main earth cable from batt to body work this may explain why all your gauges went off over a bump could just need tightining up or could have some corrosion that is giving it a bad earth/
have you had the power output from the alternater checked it may be working but if its not putting out the right power then it wont charge the battery for you
my 2006 pt cruiser won"t start. the light do come on but it will not turn over just a clicking sound. i drove it for about an hour then went back to it 30 mins later and it didn"t start. just clicking sound.
