I can only tell you what the symptoms are. On my way home, my dash lights started coming on, and my car cut on and off. Barely made it home! Once in my garage, I turned off the car, then tried starting it again. Clicking noise. Few hours later, it started, barely, runs fine, but brake, air bag and brake lights stayed on. I have a brand new battery.[/Quote:7f10b58a07]
that could be a combination of issues:
First: your alternator probably its not charging the battery (brake and charge lights on) on the dashboard its the sign of it.
Second: everything runs on power: gas pump, ignition, computer lights etc etc. If the battery got "low" the engine "cuts-off"
check your alternator could be as simple as that!
Even with new battery. If the engine its not charging it. It can die in a matter of hours (less if its at night because of the lighting)
let us know we are her to help you!
In December of last year, my son replaced my alternator. The starter was never replaced, though. I"m wondering if a starter could cause these symptoms? We used a rebuilt alternator.
BTW. Thanks for keeping up with me here; I'm promising a donation, but I need to see what the cost of the repair will ultimately be; I'm financially challanged right now![/Quote:7f10b58a07]
No I don t think that the starter its causing that.
Any way. Check the alternator. Sometimes on the rebuilt-ones they re-use most of the parts, you never know with those alternators.
Ok, will do. I will let you know what happens!
