Take the battery back to the auto parts store you purchased it from. Ask them to charge it back up to full and to do a load test on it to see if the new battery has a bad cell. If the battery checks out ok then your problem is with your alternator. You can verify this buy putting a volt meter on the positive and negative terminals you should be seeing around 13.5 volts right after the car starts up so you see the alternator is putting out. If your getting around 12 to 12.5 volts then the alternator is malfunctioning and probably needs replacement.

I hope this help you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you received this response on. Thank you

2003 crown victoria cranks wont start, was running fine, just cut out.never started again


As with any no-start situation, you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression to proceed.

2003 mustang shuts off, had to jump start.


Have you checked your alternator? Watch the battery guage and see where it is when the car is running. If it's below the 1/2 way mark, you may not be getting enough voltage to keep the battery charged. Otherwise there may be a loose battery cable either at the battery or at the engine. Check the ground wire at the engine block and make sure the positive is tight at the starter. There is also an alternator fuse; check the owners manual for the location.

87 mustang wont start


The interlock can have something to do with it. I've actually seen those devices rob the battery and create no starts. If it's not installed properly, then it can cause different things to go wrong with the car. Check the condition of your cables. Use a remote start button on the solonoid to make sure the solenoid isn't bad. Load test the battery as well. Check to make sure that your alternator is charging properly.
