CAR DIES WHEN USING ELECTRICAL THINGS
1997 Ford Escort • 136,000 miles
When I use the radio, headlights, wiper, or the ac, the car starts to miss like it going to die. There are no problem lights coming on. If I turn the car off it won't start back up.I wait like 20 mins and she starts like there was never a problem. But as soon as I use the stuff mentioned above it acts like it going to die. Headlights are extreemly low.I replaced the alternator, and the batttery. Plus the battery terminals. I reall want to know what is going on.

Last week when the battery was checked it was alittle over 12 12 4 I belive it is a 12 volt battery
Takin car to advanced auto and having everything checked over again. Same place I bought the altanator last week. This is going to make the 3rd altanator I have put on this car. Bought one last weel at a different place, and put it on and the battery light kept coming on so took it back to the place and they told me the reguator was back. Went to advanced and bought one lastweek to remind ya. Car worked excelent for a week. And now today when it was raining had to have my wipers on and headlight. And damn bear killed my car while driving. So I shut everything off. And the car worked fine. So are sure that it maybe the altanator? Or could it be something electrical? Hmmm
I doubt 3 alternators can be bad. Get a shop, not a parts store, to check it for you. It may be a power issue to the alternator not allowing it to charge properly.
Ok thanks. So it could be either the battery itself of the altanator? I'm sorry for askin all these questions but I'm a women, and all I know about a car is put the key in and go. Lol. So what exactly is a power issue? Could it possiably be a bad wire or something? I don't understand cause last time when there was something wrong with the nantor the battery light cam on. This time. No light. No nothing. Just draining all the juice from my car
How do I replace a battery in a 2009 Chevy Equinox LS with a 3.4L V6. Most cars are straight forward, this looks difficult. Shame on GM. Thanks.
