New alternator and battery. Now all dash lights are on when jump started. Wont start on its own.


Do the dash lights go out after jump starting ? Did you check what the voltage is at the battery while running , should be 13.1 to 14.1 .or more on some computer controlled charging systems ! What are you using to jump start the vehicle ? When disconnecting what ever your using to jump start the vehicle , does the vehicle die right away ?

Broken altenator belt peugeot partner 2002


Once your belt snapped all of your cars power was running off of the battery (lights, radio, spark plugs, etc.), then your battery died. Therefore you have no power to turn your starter and apply a spark. Get someone to jump your car, once your car is started allow it to run for a little while to charger your battery back up. Batteries don't allways charge up properly either so you may end up needing a battery, depending on its age.

It died as i was driving and try jump starting but nothing happens light work but light on dash board wont come on


First things first, check the battery and the alternator. See if the alternator is faulty or not.

Car wont start and its not the battery or alternator wont turn over or nothing tried to jump it and it came right on but died little after what is the problem


If it started with a jump, the battery either needs a charge or is bad.

I assume it started with the jump, but when disconnected, it died again. If so, this means it is also not charging which likely means a new alternator.

You can take the battery and alternator to the local parts store for testing (you may need both).

Hope this helps.

hi there i would try cheking the altornator as if this is faulty then it would not charge the battery and when you jump start it it will run but due to the alternator being faulty it will not be sending the signal back to the ecu so it will shut the engine down hope this helps ben
