It sounds like a bad alternator. To verify, pull alternator off and have any good parts store bench test it. Most will do this for free.

My 07 uplander wont start most times. and the charging system failure message keep coming on


Sounds like an alternator/battery issue. When it does start, if your voltage gauge isn't close to the 14v mark or the upper end of the gauge, then your alternator isn't charging. If your alernator is charging then your battery might have a dead cell and won't take a charge from the battery. In this case the best thing to do is take the battery to your local part store and have them charge it and test it. Most of the chain stores do it for free.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

Dead no spark


Check all your battery connections. Maybe not a good connection since your key doesn't turn on warning lights and gauges. See if your headlights work to verify a good battery connection.
Any chance you blew fuses? Like a maxi fuse for the ignition switch? Or for older vehicles that used a fusible link to connect battery power with the ignition switch. Keep diagnosing until you get power to the ignition switch (warning lights and gauges working with key ON).
Any chance your battery is totally discharged? Was the alternator working good when tested? If alternator quits working, engine and all electricals will run off the battery for a time until it is totally depleted, then will stall and won't have enough juice to even turn any lights on. Check battery voltage with a multi meter or voltmeter. A good, fully charged battery will show 12.6 volts. If under 12 volts, it may or may not have enough juice to start, but lights will still work some, though maybe very dim. .

Battery on full charge then start truck drive to town and noticed volt gauge at low turned lights and access off got home shut truck off tried starting after shut down and noting but dead bat havn prob...


You need to fully charge the battery and load test it, then check the charging system and alternator drive belt for tightness. do not remove cable when running or it can harm the charging system...ok on older cars, no longer good practice. Quick check of charge system can be done with volt meter across the battery. Volts should read between 13 and 14volts and not drop over time. With all lights, heater etc on volts should be better than 12.5 (usually above 13 and again, not drop with time.

Went to start my car - dead - the lights inside work - this happened once before checked the battery it is good and cleaned the battery post and cables and it worked fine- could it be the altinator?


How do you know the battery is good? If you are sure the battery is good (not sure how you determined this), then you should check the charging system. You can do this by checking battery voltage with engine off, then again with engine running. Voltage should be 1 - 2 volts higher with engine running if charging system is working. This is just a quick check, but will definitely identify a charging system that is not working at all.

Dead battery or starter?


Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.
