The problem started when the car died out on the way home from work. I jumped the car and then took it home. It made a clicking noise when I tried to roll the key over in the ignition and the battery light showed. The car made it home but would not turn on.
I was told that it could be the alternator.
I then proceeded to troubleshoot the problem. I replaced the alternator myself and had it checked by a mechanic to see if it was a bad alternator. Everything checked out. I replaced the terminals because they had slight corrosion. I also bought a brand new battery as well from Auto Zone.
Now, the car will turn on every time I try to start it. However, the battery light is still on and if you go to drive the car it ends up dying out before you reach your destination.
What could this possibly be causing the light to be on and the car to die out?
have the same problem?
