BH is right on there, dirty battery connections is most likely and also mean your alternator cannot charge properly. If it turns out the battery and alternator are ok it is probably your starter motor.

Step one is to clean your battery cable connections. Remove the negative cable first (this is important.) When reconnecting neg cable goes on last. Clean the battery posts with wire brush and scrape the inside of the conector with pocket knife or similar tool. If you have a battery charger, charge the battery. If after reconnecting still not enough juice, take the battery to wal mart or autozone etc to be tested. They should do it at no charge. If the battery tests good then you are probably looking at an alternator problem. Beware though I've seen same symptoms from a loose ground wire. Autozone will check alternators and many other parts for free. So does Oreilly's.

My 1999 Chevy S10 4.3L won't start in the cold with a brand new battery and alternator. This only happens in 10 degrees(F) or below. What could be the issue?


I forgot this one: check the contacts of all power cables. Cab;es in the start circuit. Eventually, by hand. When you can wiggle them around there will be a too high resistance on that connection.

When driving my Why would my s10 just quit


sounds like a loose power connection or bad wiring in the engine compartment. Check battery cables and ground connections at both ends of wires and cables first. If the problem remains, test equipment and a wiring diagram would come in handy.
