If the alternator isn't charging the battery the alternator light should be on, (if it has a light) and if it has a guage with a needle-hand, it should be a little on the discharge side. You should check all fuses, there should be some under the dash panel and probably some under the hood. Check also the alternator to make sure the belt is tight-tight. I am not very familiar with this particular car, but if you check these things and still have the problem, you might want to re-post your problem saying you have checked these things and someone will help you.

Battery light followed by total failure on freeway. Autozone tested altenator and replaced battery earlier that day.


change alternator and maybe battery. Since the battery is pretty new, draining it like you say only took a year or two off its lifespan. Remember how your car acted this time, as most newer cars do the same exact thing when the charging system or battery needs service. In the future, you will recognize the symptom and know where to look before you get stranded.

Car died at light, tried to start then clicking noise. car started on a jump. then replaced the battery & altenator. later on driving car again. car dies at light tried to start then clicking noise...


Did anybody bother to actually TEST the charging and starting system or are we just replacing parts? This whole thing COULD be caused by something as simple as a bad battery cable connection.

I would recommend reading the following articles:

I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent 1.6L. While driving it wil die, there is no spark but all the fuel pressure is fine. After it cools down it starts and drives for about 5-10 miles then dies again.


This sounds to me like an intermittent crankshaft sensor problem. Did your CHECK ENGINE light come on? Crankshaft sensors sometimes flicker this way before they completely die, sometimes they don't. I think you may have a flickerer. Have the code checked at your local Advanced Auto or Auto Zone. The part is only about $30.00. GOOD LUCK.

Bad regulator, is about I can figure, I have gotten a bad alternator before also. I am not sure if it is in the alternater are not, Some cars have a seperate regulator mounted under the hood if that is the case follow the wires from your alternator to locate it, Hope this helped you
