It is your alternator by the sound of it.  You can jump start your car but without a working alternator, you car will not stay running.  Basically, the vehicle is running off of the battery only.  This is a good indication when your radio, lights, and all the 'extras' stop working.  Its a good point to pay attention to these things when you are driving too.  Its a little scary to have the vehicle just stop running when you are still driving!!   Have it towed in, don't try to drive it to a repair shop!

My car won't turn on it was working fine last


Just because you charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good. Modern sealed batteries fail; just as you described, fine one moment and then nothing, they go open internally.

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.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...


Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

I have 1997 buick century and i was stopped at a light and the car inside lights started flashing and the car cut off and would not start back. radio was working and would not take a jump. does nothing...


Check for power at starter solenoid on switch side (purple wire) should have 12-12.6 volts if you have power to the solenoid and it won't do anything then the starter is bad.
