How do I know if I need a new starter or alternator is gone out the car won't start but the battery is good


if battery is good, then alternator is ok if battery has not be charged separated from when the car was last running. running a car on battery only, with bad alternator drains battery very quickly.

New battery new alternator wont start ?


I'd check for bad or corroded contacts/cables from battery to starter (If your vehicle is older than 14 years). If that looks good I'd be suspicious of the solenoid in your starter sticking(will probable need a new starter).

Car wont start,seems like battery went dead


If the car doesn't start with a jump you might have a bad alternator. The alternator supplies voltage to the car once the engine is running. If the battery is dead, and the alternator isn't putting out sufficient voltage, the engine cannot run. Then again sometimes a car with an extremely dead or internally shorted battery WON'T start with a jump. Replace the battery and try again.

Short in wire from battery to starter or cylenoid? sometimes it will turn over other times not


I had my ford 91 ranger checked and both were good, plus alternator was in the green? But kept killing batteries and would not start without a jump. I replaced solenoid, starter, and battery. Finally removed the alternator and the BRUSHES were making contact just enough to keep my truck running, but when lights or any other accessory was used the truck would quit. New alternator and starts every time and can run all accessories without problem. Check the brushes on the alternator.

Chevy truck not turning over. New battery. Pulled starter - starter turns when connected to battery.


check out the alternator...it might be that the alternator doesn't charge the battery and then the battery dies on you so the truck doesn't start...
and sometimes the ignition switch goes bad...try to shake it when trying to start the car...if it starts then thats the problem...
good luck!

I CHECK BATTERY,STARTER AND ALTERNATOR 95 CADILLAC DEVILLE STILL WON'T START WHAT'S WRONG


Check connections to the battery to make sure they are tight and clean at the contact points.

A fresh battery should start a car if the starter is good.

If you have an ammeter, hook it up to see how much amperage is being drawn when attempting to crank the engine.

If it's above 100 amps or even above 75 amps and does not turn, you have a bad starter.

Sometimes tapping the outside of the starter from below with a ball peen hammer while cranking the engine (need a helper) can start the car if the starter has a bad spot on it.

The alternator comes in to play if the battery is discharged and isn't getting charged by the alternator. The alternator is probably not the problem if you have a new battery and can't turn over the car, at least for that part of the diagnosis.

So, I wouldn't worry about the alternator until the starter and battery are eliminated as being the problem.

96 pontiac battery drains itself


Sounds like it IS the alternator. Batteries sometimes have a bit of a life of their own after sitting for awhile and will start a car. Once running, it will continue until the battery charge dies completely...especially when not using radio, A/C, lights etc... Also, it could be an alternator belt, (or surpentine belt) too lose on the alternator. Finally, check the battery for water level. If it is the type that requires water, sometimes people forget to fill it when sold.

My sisters 1996 lincoln continental sometimes starts sometimes wo


Definitely sounds like a starter. When a bad starter is cold, it will start the car. After riding around for a while or after several starts in a row, the starter heats up and won't start without a boost. Since you've ruled out the battery and alternator, I'm positive a new starter will solve your problem. Good Luck!
