Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere (either on your battery terminals, the wire that holds the terminals, OR the alternator. Check for any corrosion, OR for any loose wires in that area. Hope this helps. :) Also check your belt to see if its good and tight, if not, then that could be your problem.

2005 dodge neon won't start I've jumped it off with jumper cables and take cables off it and it dies. i got another alternator and tried to jump it and it died when i took jumper cables off still????


I would suggest that you have a load test done on the existing battery as the indications are that it has several dead cells
the vehicle starts of the jumper battery but on removing the leads there is nothing with which to keep the ignition circuit operational
alternators need a current from the battery to start charging as they do not have residual magnetism in the stator so when you take the jumper leads off there is nothing to keep the alternator charging hence no power for the ignition circuit.

2003 taurus lights dimed &suddenly died as if there was no battery. I tried to jump start it but i got nothing but clicking from curcuit breakers by the battery compartment


Yes... Your battery died. But why?

First, leave the cables on longer, a good 10 or 15 minutes. When you hear that clicking noise, it's because there is not enough power available to turn the starter. It means you need more power. Leave the jumper cables on for a few more minutes and you will have the power you need to start the car.

Once the car is started, remove the jumper cables and pull the positive (Red) cable off the terminal on your battery. If the car stays running, get a new battery. If the car dies immediately after pulling the positive battery cable off, then your altenator has gone out. The altenator is the electrical generator that provides electricity to your lights, engine, stereo, AC, etc. It should be putting out about 14.2 volts. Since your car is a 12 volt system, there are a couple of extra volts to spare, which are used to recharge the battery. It takes a lot of power from a battery to start the vehicle. That's why the alternator is there to takeover after startup, plus recharge your battery in the process.

Car keeps dying


The first thing you need to do is run an electronic engine control module fault code test. To run this test and see codes lists go here.

Battery tests good, altenator tests good, battery light on. can jump but 03 explorer dies when cables are removed


How did you test the alternator? If you tested it by using a multimeter on the batteries while the jumper cables where still connected, then you were probably reading the alternator put out of the other vehicle if it was running as well. Or you read the combined volts of the batteries. Usually if a vehicle dies after removing the jumper cables then it is the alternator. I would use a multimeter to test the alternator while the explorer is running. It should be reading about 14 volts. The other possiblity could be the battery. You can voltage all day long, but if you dont have the required cold cranking amps then the truck wont start. You can take the battery and or the alternator into the autoparts store and get them tested for free.

My 2002 pontiac aztek battery light came on yesterday. Today i went out and NOTHING. jumpstarted it ran for a few minutes then died. Will not start without being jumped. i figured out how to get past the...


Hello! I do not believe this is a security issue...The Battery Light is telling you that the charging system has a fault...One of three possibilities exist...# 1...The battery can no longer hold a charge...
# 2...The Alternator is defective...Or # 3...The cables that interconnect power and ground are corroded and resistive...Do you have a voltmeter and a wee bit of experience using one?...If not send a comment...Set the meter to rear +12 volts...Place the meter probes directly in the center of the battery post...Record the reading...Jump start the vehicle...Quickly remove the jump cables and while the engine is still running, take the same reading again...The second reading must be 1.8 to 2 volts higher than the first...This tests the alternator...If alternator is good...Have the battery tested...Clean cables (on both ends) if necessary...

When the battery, alternator and cables are correct, the battery light will go out...At that point in time the engine should start...If not, then we have other issues and I'll fix them if necessary...

Battery died (or not). When I give it a jump, the car starts, but as soon I remove the jump cable, car turns off.. What could be the issue>


Your issue is indicating two problems. First let's talk about how your charge system works so that you can see what happened. The battery is there to start the engine. At the point the engine starts, the alternator takes over and provides power to the engine and also charges the battery for the next time you start your car. If the alternator fails to work, the engine runs solely off the battery. The car should have indicated that the charge system is not working, maybe you saw a battery light on your dashboard. After some time, the battery is depleted and will not start the car or be able to run the engine. So it appears that you have a defective alternator, and also your battery is either discharged, or is also bad. When you hook up your car to jumper cables, you are running off of your buddy's charge system/battery, so when you disconnect them, your car dies.

Went hunting came back and parked 04 dakota in yard went to start wont start, hooked jumper cables up to it and it started but as soon as i took it off it died. so i took the alternator in to have it...


Most likely:
1. The battery has a dead cell.
2. The battery terminals need to be cleaned. Remove both battery cables and clean cable clamps and battery terminals. May not need a boost.
3. The negative cable is loose where it is connected to engine ground. Or damaged, corroded, or otherwise not making a good connection.

Dead Battery wont even stall should I charge it using jumper cables??


You can jumpstart using jumper cables. Then drive car around to get battery charged back up or get a battery charger and charge battery.
