Sounds like your generator/ charging components
on your engine are not replenishing the battery as
its running. if this is the case then the spark to run
engine will drain power straight from your battery
until it goes flat then no spark no go.
also check your battery is upto date and terminals
are clean and corosion free, and your leads are
fitted correctly and are tight.

    hook a volt meter to the battey, cheak the reading then twist throttle until u get areound 1400 rpm then check reading again(make sure ur on volts) if no change in reading meaning if ur battery is at 11 volts at idle and is not around 13-14 volt at the said rpm then there is a problem with the charging system. if u need any help check those systems

Sounds like its not charging.charge battery and start it and while its running take off negative battery cable. If it dies the altenator is not puting out.

My 2000 impala will not start. I've had my starter, batt, & engine all replaced. I've begin to suspect my auto theif system as the reason its not starting after a lot of online research, but...

I had a Nissan doing this to me a little while ago, but couldn't figure out the problem. A couple weeks later, the lady told me she took the car to a shop and they replaced the crank and cam sensors. My bet is that it was the crank sensor.

My car keeps dying and won't restart until I charge the battery again. Then, when I drive during the day there are no problems. When I drive at night using the headlights it will die within a short period...


Thsi way you will keep paying me $10 everytime your battery goes dead. Please have your car alternator checked and repaired as it is not charging the battery because of which the battery runs low and the cars stops. Gas cars need a battery to run on, unlike diesel ones that need battery only to start. They can also be push started if the battery is dead. petrol card cant run without the battery. So, the answer lies in driving to the electrician and getting the alternator repaired.
