Car dies while driving. Poked around and I am getting a charge on the negative post. I can also hear a clicking sound by the boost sensor and the fuse box, the fuel injector one, when I tap the negative wire to the negative post. Don't know where to start.

Battery is drained


try an old fashioned battery boost from another car or truck. leave the other car running while boosting your. run booster cable from the booster car to your truck make sure to run them the same way on each battery. positive on booster to positive side battery on the truck. run the negative from booster car to negative on your truck. allow the car to run for about 10minutes before you attempt to start your truck. this allows your battery to build up enough charge for the start up of your truck. after your truck starts take the cables off right away. let your truck run for at least 15minutes to allow time for your battery to build up before you attempt to drive it.that way if it should die,you'll have enough charge on your battery for a restart. thank you for choosing fixya.com hope this helps.

I forgot to turn off the lights in my car. What can I do to start the car running? Do I need to replace the battery?


You need someone to boost you with jumper cables.Battery will be fine after you let the car run for a bit.The alternator will recharge your battery.

Have a 1991 or 1995 Intrepid and car died, tried to boost the car gave it power than died, we noticed corrosion on the posts so cleaned the posts. (Noticed lights and power was coming back on when...


did it stay running when connected to the car giving the boost? if so then the alternator is not charging the electrical system, get it serviced or replaced.

Won't start after battery died and recharged


Sounds like low voltage.
Get a boost from another car with a good set of cables.
Once started check voltage with booster car disconnected.
Is it around 14 volts?
If so,the truck is charging, so it may be time for a new battery.

If the voltage is at 12 or lower while running the truck is not charging.
May be time for a new alternator.

The battery should have charged enough in 1 hour to start the truck.
You may need a battery and alternator.

Starts with boost then car dies after 1 km and won't start


once the car is started it runs off the alternator .. so even if your battery is bad the alternator will still run the car .. so it looks lilke your alternator is bad .. when you jumped the car you charged the battery a little but not enough to keep it going since the alternator is not charging . if you hook up a charger overnight then you might be able to run it long enough to get somewhere (garage) .. try to drive when you dont need lights .. those will run down the battery in a short time .. if you have a volt meter then the battery should read about 13.8 to 14.2 volts when the alternator is working properly (car running) .. if it reads lower (like 12volts or less) then the alternator is not charging .. some auto parts stores will test your system free ..

Battery dont seem to hold charge


it is not your battery but your regulator in your altenator. a quick check for this is start the vehicle then remove the positive cable from the battery if it dies it's the altenator. if it doesn't that means you have a draw on the battery from some other source. check this out and keep me posted please rate this
