Starter is dragging which mean you need to replace it or have it check at your parts store

2003 chevy impala battery having problems with something is draining my battery


Have you tested your alternator? Could be your alt isnt working and your battery is keeping yoyur car going so it is draining it till its dead. If you want to check it start your car and when its running take the negative cable off the battery if it dies then your alternator needs to be replaced.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

Was running fine, then the alt belt broke and truck died (1985 gmc jimmy s15) It is getting plenty of fuel, and oil is full, and battery is fully charged, just turns and turns over but wont start!


pull distributor cap off and turn it over make sure button is moving if not then the timing chain broke, if so then maybe timing jumped a few degrees

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.

HI there
Try checking a few things first like jump start again and then take off the earth lead only{black} and let it run for 6 minute on idle then turn on the head lights main beam ,,if the engine dies in about 2 minutes then the Alternator isent working full power as it should be pumping out 13.5 volts min and the lights should be bright and stay on... if not you have a Alt problem still like a bad feed to alternator or a bad connection on the battery post or a loose wire from engine to body {earth wire } also check out the relay to Alt ..
Let me know how you get on . RON

I'm driving down the road and my truck dies, i'll jump start it and it goes for a couple of blocks and dies again. i've had the alternator and battery checked and they say they're both ok. any suggestions


It could be that you are loosing a connection to main power on fuse panel but it is unlikely. In most cases if this is happening it is because the alternator is not charging. I know you will say you have had it tested but most testing procedures do not load test the alternator and does not show the amperage output of an alternator, they show voltage. In most cases there is not enough to back up the rate of charge and run the car so it dies again...
