My car will not start. The battery is new and has a full charge and turns everything on when I turn the key but when I try to start it, it will not do anything not even clicking noise.


if the battery is good it is NOT the alternator. the alternator charges the battery, if it won`t start with a new battery the alternator does nothing to affect the situation. check voltages at the starter motor connections for proper voltages even the wires that the ignition switch supplies power to. if you have proper voltages at the starter you can try hitting the starter while someone tries to start the car. if it starts the starter is worn internally and will have to be replaced.

My asb light comes on when starting and stays on. Lights won't come on , power locks won't work, power windows won't work, radio won't work. All fuses are good and car runs fine.


Those are all really common symptoms of the alternator going bad on those cars. I would have it checked to make sure it's charging properly.

Battery going dead when truck is not running


If the battery isn't over 4 years old, then you
have to pull one fuse at a time or put an amp
meter in series with either battery cable to see
where the drain is.

Some Module may not be timing out or there is
a problem with the alternator

Every vehicle is wired different ,simply can't give you
a specific cause,has to be tested in the proper way
to stop the problem

A/C and heating core


The leaking heater core won't keep the compressor from working.
You say the ac system is charged, but the compressor won't come on ??
The compressor has to run to charge the system, otherwise you will only get half a can of freon to go in. The system holds 3 or 4 cans when empty.
The low pressure switch has to be jumped to make the compressor run to take the first two cans of freon.

Why won't new alternator charge battery when car is running


Many cars have a voltage regulator that is integral to the alternator. Check to be sure it is properly connected. One year later afternoon the day before the Turkey was to be cooked I replaced the Alternator. I drove 200 hundred miles and had the car die at the gate to my destination. I failed to properly connect the Voltage Regulator on the Alternator. Look in that direction for a bad wire, fuse, connector.

How do I properly replace my 2006 Chrysler Sebring ac condenser? Can I use a condenser from a 2004 Chrysler Sebring?


You can replace the condenser easy enough

You won't be able to recover the refrigerant when
you start,so right there your breaking EPA Laws

Then you won't have gauges or a vacuum pump,
so you can not even work on the A/C System
to test or charge it !!

While driving Infinity I35-the battery light and brake light came on. Then the car shut off and it would not come back on, replaced the battery but both lights remain on? What can this be?


This is the cause of a bad alternator that has stop working properly and not charging the battery anymore. So the vehicle might be running on battery until it drains it. If car won't start again, that means there is no more juice on the battery enough to start the car. This indication on the dashboard of these light coming on is a nice indication that Japanese vehicle companies have applied to give a hint that Alternator is not functioning properly anymore. Taking the Alternator is very easy and its only held by one or two bolts with battery wire connection attached to it. Taking it to a Alternator rebuilder to get it fix is the cheapest way than taking it to the dealer where as the rebuilder will charge around $40 were as the dealer will charge $100 + for replacement.

How can i charge the battery for the equinox 2007 , can i just do it regularly like with the cables and another car??


The cables are just for jump starting, you won`t be able to get a full charge that way.You will need to connect a battery charger to do it properly.If you don`t have a battery charger auto zone will charge it and test it for free if you remove it and take it to them.
