Your description is missing some detail but it sounds like your alternator is damaged. Take your car to a service center to have it tested.

I have a 2014 dodge dart sxt 2.4L. I had problems a few months ago where my car would start fine..drive 1 place and turn car off then would not start. Installed new battery and alternator after running...

Seems you have a dead battery. Could be anything related to the charging system (alternator, control, wiring) or the battery itself. It takes a methodic process of testing to determine the cause(s).

Start by having battery tested and charged. If the battery checks ok and holds a charge then "likely" the problem is with the charging system, but it's a multistep process of elimination and very few parts store do a complete full load battery test.

If the battery test fails then you'll need to replace the battery and then promptly have the charging system tested to verify its working or you'll have another dead battery.

Once the battery and charging system has been verified functional you need to have a parasitic current test done. Excessive parasitic draw can ruin a new battery in a few months depending on your driving habits. Is this a daily driver or every other week or longer?

Ford probe 24v sport engine, starts ok cold, but after a few minutes warming up it cuts out, leave it for a few minutes and it starts and runs no problems, just the cutting out bit thats a problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Mostly this is caused by a failing coil pack. It is located on the side of the engine where the spark plug wires are attached. You will need to remove the cap to gain access to the coil pack. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

OMG!! its a nightmare! Help!! i turned my navigator this morning and the battery light stayed on the dash board...when i accelerate it either blinks or goes off for a few and it comes back on...i had put a...

Yes. There is a very good possibility that your alternator is beginning to fail. The battery only starts the car and maintains nominal accessories. The alternator on the other hand actually provides the fire/spark for the engine after it has started o keep the engine running.
The light coming on and off is indicating the alternator is failing or falling below what is needed for the engine. When this occurs the system defaults to the battery, where it drains the battery. At higher speeds/RPM's the battery light is probably turning off - right?
A very easy way to check this is to start the vehicle, and with the engine running, remove the Negative (black) Cable going to the Battery. If the engine dies, it is the alternator and needs to be replaced immediately. Once an alternator fails, it will drain and kill the battery.

1991 Honda Accord won't start. Battery seems ok

Sounds like the distributor. But you may have a faulty replacement coil..get an exchange and see if it is faulty. I have received many replacement parts that fail prematurely.

Power problems

1. Change your fuel pump.

2. Have a look at the starter. That is definately the problem.

Cheers.

Sometimes the engine doesn't start and the spark plugs are wet

Change cap & plug wires. If emergency before wire & cap repalcement, spray wires & cap with WD-40, let sit a few minutes & try it. WD-40 displaces moisture. Don't keep doing that though, its dangerous, just replace wires & cap.

1993 Honda Accord-shuts off while driving/won't start up

I had the same problem. My car would shut off without any warning, I changed my Main Relay located under the dash, right below the change slot on the left hand side. I have not had a problem since. The price at Napa Auto parts runs about $68.00. This should fix your problem.
