Sounds like you need a new alternator. Have it checked just to be sure at your local auto parts store. I'm quite positive that this IS your problem though. I would also check your alternator, and battery fuses first to see if they are blown. And also check your battery terminals for looseness. And corrosion. Hope this helps, James Booth. PLEASE RATE THIS!!! :))

My 1998 chevy blazer died going down the highway, what is wrong?


Multiple possibilities. Will start with easiest/cheapest. You don't mention check engine light (that would give codes), so I'll go with the same issue we've had with newer Blazers. That would be the ECM in the distributor. When ours started going bad, it would cut-off intermittently. Well one day the intermittent was terminal. Anew ECM, for the 2.8 V6 (1987) is approx 45.00. You would have to price it for your vehicle based on year and engine size. The worst case scenario is loss of timing gear. (That happened on our 67 Buick with 300 V8). Another thought is what happened to a friend. He's putzing on down the highway when his 88 Pontiac Grand Am simply quit. His computer had bit the big one. Those are the only things that come to mind, other than running out of gas or your alternator had quit charging your battery and the battery finally lost enough power to spark the plugs.

What causes the battery light on a 1992 Saturn sl to come on and then go out when i tac 3000rpms or higher but comes on and stays on below 3000rpms and if the car sits for a while it may not even come on....


It is most likely that the alternator is going out. It seems to be working intermittently. There are other things that can be causing this but I would rule out the alternator first.

Air bag light showing at the dashboard. It's intermittent happening. The air bag light dissapeared for a month then iy\t's back again. It usually appears for a couple of days. What could be causing t


The airbag light on the dashboard comes for few reasons, either there is a bad connection or connection came loose but than the light would stay on at all times, if it comes periodically than I would look up to the owner's manual and also find the airbag check label inside the car as it might be faulty or in need of replacement. The danger is that if it is faulty it can blow up by itself or in case of accident (hope none happens) it will malfunction.

Battery light and beyond?


how many miles did you drive, before finally getting home ? . Was it at night with heater on ? If the battery light was on at that time, you pulled ALL of the power out of your new battery. Need to recharge the battery, and most likely need an alternator. Hope this helps

Intermittent Problem


Not sure if my situation helps or not, but here you go.....

I have a 2006 H3 that has 21,000 miles, last week my husband was driving and lost power, service engine came on, and it kept flashing stabilization problem. Called roadside assistance and had it towed to the dealership. Dealership said it was a dead battery and replaced it. Took the vehicle home and didn't drive for a couple of days. Drove again a couple of days later with no problems. 2 days later tried to start and vehicle had no power could not start at all. Called road side assistance and had it again towed to dealership. Dealership told us the main computer was bad and had to be replaced. We were told it is NOT a common problem, heres hoping we don't have any other issues with the vehicle.
