Hi ,One sugestion is to chech your timing belt by taking the oil cap of and look if the valvas move when some one else crank the enginee,If they dont move the belt is bad , if they move check for fuel delivery and ignition module. Good Luck.

You may have a bad alternator. Car died while driving, either gas or fire. if you know about MAFS your should know how to check starter function by jumping solenoid to large post of battery. Check for 12V at the large post on starter. Then try to jump the two connections. If car cranks, I would check ignition circuit for faults.

2007 chevy 2500 died while driving down the road. Lights/radio still work


The battery light was on because the engine stopped running. The alternator was not charging the battery.
On a model that new, if the engine did overheat the computer could kill it. A stuck thermostat comes to mind. But your temp gauge should have been on the hot side.
Its also possible something locked up and is preventing the engine from cranking, such as the water pump or alternator. You may need to remove the belt to verify. If the belt is slipping it would not power the water pump to keep the engine cool.

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. There is an access panel in the floor of the car to get to the pump.

Replaced battery in2006 hundayi accent, reversed terminal connection for a few seconds. no radio,instrument panel lights are all on. battery discharging car dies after jumpstart within quarter mile


It is possible that when you reversed the terminals you fried you alternator or melted a wire leading. check all fuses and take the car to a dealer to get the charging/cranking system checked. some parts stores will check them for you for free.

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?
