Hi.I have a 1993 Cadillac Seville that I purchased a month ago.Alternator is New Battery is also New.I drove it for a few hours and it died in the middle of the street.I tried starting it and it wouldnt turn over....I thought maybe bad gas since car sat for a while before I bought it.I left the flashers on for 30 minutes or so while tow truck was en route.When I got the car home there was no power at all.Some one told me to disconnect the allarm.Sometimes they drain the power?Can you shed some light on this issue please?Thank,Piero Melia

Sounds like a ground or positive wire problem. Check all connections If this is a 4.9 you may have a bad ign module.

My 97 Cadillac Seville will not start and dies while driving.


Check battery leads. If they're loose, or not making good contact, the engine will shut down or possible not start. It's a safety feature to protect the alternator.

You may have a Electrical Short. Make sure all your connections to the Battery, Starter and Alternator are tight, no corrosion present, no broken or corroded wires.

Check the cells on the battery, if they are dry or not full of water then they can go bad. That would incorporate the battery to keep dying. When you start the car it feeds off the alternator, and then starts to die.
Check your charging system, test the battery.

1990 JEEP Cherokee that won't start even after a new battery


It sounds kind of like you have bad alternator. The alternator uses the engines power to recharge the battery. When you replaced the battery the car ran off battery power untill it died. If the car will run while hooked up to another car while being jump started then the problem is deffinetely the alternator..

Please give a good rating, it is very importat to us..

Cadillac Seville with new battery won't start, won't even fire up!!


Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

Car won't start, battery power loss could it be the alternator?


Alternator should have better than 13.5v output with all accessories on including headlamps.Check with volt meter right at battery terminals (running) If not it's not working properly. Doubtful from what you have said that starter is bad. Also check that terminal connections are clean and tight on battery.
