If the vehicle has a good charging system, you can put a BAD battery in it, jump start it and run run run. Just wont be able to start it again without a jump. If the vehicle has a bad charging system, you can put a new battery in it, and it will only run till the battery dies. And the vehicle will die while in motion.
Hope this helps..

My car just shut down and drained the battery to where i had to keep jumping it off but when it shuts down there is nothing.

It may be your battery terminals or your alternator. The engine runs on electricity so if your battery is not being charged, those are the most common culprits.
A simple test is to charge your battery, turn on your vehicle, and disconnect your battery. If vehicle turns off, your alternator is bad. Oh another thing could cause this, a blown fusible link (if applicable). But that is not so common.

My windows stopped all guages stopped and once put in park its locked unlease u use shift release

Check for proper battery charge and proper charging system operation. A low battery will cause the vehicle to shut down different power options. Does the vehicle start when shut off easily?

95 chevy g20 van started to lose power while driving and began to spit and sputter

Ck your alternator output, should be between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, A bad alt will cause the battery to discharge when driving, Once voltage drops to a certain level (9.8 I think ) the ecm starts to shut down causing all kinds of strange problems, like running bad ,trans not shifting right, even the radio ! It happened to me in my 95 chev p/u

Why does my 2002 bonneville shut off while in motion but power remains on

No, the battery will not run down due to this problem. When you shut off your truck and pull out the key, the power to the motor will be cut off and should stop blowing. Depending how your vehicle is set up, the blower will stop as soon as you shut off the ignition key, or when the door is opened like it does on my 2005 Chevy Uplander van. If your battery is running low, you either have a worn out battery or some extra accessory is loading it down.

The resistor pack which limits the current to your blower motor when your switch is set on the lower settings is most likely bad. These are usually located close to the blower motor. On my 2002 S10, it is located in the engine compartment on the passenger side, attched to the blower motor air duct. the dealer or local auto parts store will have this part. Unfortunatly, I have not changed one on your specific vehicle, so can't give you more detail than I already have.

Hope this helps.

Car starts, runs, turns off then sometimes wont start??

how old is the battery? is it the origional? cause if you have to jump it then put a new battery in to solve the problem, most batterys say they are good for about 5 yrs to 8 yrs, depending, but if you jump it that brings life of the battery down... try putting a new battery in, and also check all around the vehicle, in the trunk look at the trunk light make sure it turns off when closed,all interior lights make sure they all shut off,check the glove box light to make sure it is shutting off ETC. cause even tho those are small bulbs if they stay on that will drain a battery quick over night... hope this helps.... GET the new battery that should fix your problem....

No power on key

There's a gas module located above the spare tire . This is famous for shorting out causing the problems I described and blowing a fuse in the panel, the fuse number is f43 which causes the vehicle to shut down, Hope this helps someone else. Thanks

Stereo loses power when vehicle is in motion.

Look for a loose wire or connection! Obviously something is getting disturbed by the bumps and motion of the vehicle.

You would have to get access to the wiring that is associated with the radio, and try moving, pushing, and pulling on the wires and connectors to make some kind of disturbance. They when you make the fault, you work your way around to zero in on the exact location.

My car stops on motion

several things it could be
alternator replacement
relay is bad
computer going bad
over heat saftey feature thats killing the power so you dont crack your block
make sure your fan is running and hook power to fan direct to an power fuse this is when you turn the key to on the fan starts running you can also add a toggle switch to cooling fan so when in accessory it wont run down battery
your vehicle is equipeted with an electric cooling fan if this shuts off your vehicle over heats and shuts off
this ensures vehicle is always running cool
