Is the check engine light on?

Disconnect battery again for an hour to clear keep alive memory from your engine computer. Then drive 15 miles to see if it gets better.

Report back.

Cranks but wont start


Whenever your car won't start, it is either fuel, spark, or air. In your case, because it died while driving and won't run very long, I think it's spark. I would guess that your alternator is no longer providing enough voltage to charge the battery, hence your battery acting like it's dead, and your car not wanting to run long when you do get it started. Use a multimeter to check the voltage coming from the alternator when the car is running. It should be 14.5V or so. If it is down around or lower than 13, replace the alternator.

2000 windstar with a 3.8 motor cranks slow then stops and no start .Acts like a dead battery battery is good what can it be?


Bad connection or corroded cables, possibly a bad starter. Sounds like something is drawing more amps than the battery is capable of supplying.

Clicking noise start wont


I would guess your alternator is failing or has failed. Your vehicle will not run if the battery is dead and the alternator has no output.

2000 ford focus keeps dying when i come to a stop and battery light stays on


power is not getting to the alternator to turn it on from the keyswitch..need to check the cars running voltage.. should be 14.5 or higher but not over 16..sounds like the battery alone is supporting the system(and it wont forlong)..may have a bad fuseable link..

Battery died, changed battery and now engine wont crank.


Look for a blown starter fuse or fusible link in your underhood block. Also look for what made it blow.

Battery light on, takes forever to start then dies once started


if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping

My 2003 PT cruiser dies at a stop sign and then it won't start


You may need a new battery (alternator will keep it running once jumped but if you stop, the idle may not keep the car powered long enough). If you've never replaced the battery, its about time - they have a life of about 5 years.

check if all the power leads have been connected to the battery, the maybe a small power connectiono that has fallen down the side of the battery when you changed it , this may solve it
