I'm not aware of an alternator light, only a voltage gauge. It sounds like you need a new battery. Another (cheaper/easier) troubleshooter is to take the cap off of the cells on the battery itself. If the battery acid is lower than half, add DISTILLED water to raise the level then replace the caps. Sometimes a battery dries out.

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

New plugs,new dist cap,new coil new ign. control module new fuel filter ,wont start

Fuel system checked? If OK, did you "reset" the ECC also called the ECM or PCM which is the computer of the vehicle? Do it by unhooking "both" battery cables, waiting 15 minutes, rehook then try to start and see if this helps. If not you may have to start on the ground floor by checking all fuses, crank and cam sensors, ICM, etc.

Since the fuel cap is clear, your symptoms point to a bad Ignition Coil. Even though it it brand new, this could be the problem. I would take it back where you purchased it and tell them how it is acting . You may even suggest that you think it's a bad Coil. A new coil could cost you $40, but I sure wouldn't pay for it! I'd make them pay for it.

Good Luck!

I drove threw some flooded roads and it didnt do anything right away but about 10 miles later my car just quit working and then wouldnt start it wants to turn over but it just wont do u have any idea about...

when you went threw the flooded roads it could have got a little bit of water into your engine so take out your spark plugs and start the engine to get the water out then drain your oil and see if it looks milky if so then change your oil and let your car run in idle for about 20 minutes then change the oil again. i hope this solves your problem

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Runs fine for approx 15 mins,then stalls out and wont start again

sounds like coil problem, coils will start cold then get hot and stop. when coil cools will crank up and run till it gets hot, try to replace the ignition coil,dont think it would be a crank sensor, try a coil,thanks robert b.
