Car Batteries

1996 chrysler sebring checks out ok after battery electrical test but continues to stall while driving with no warning and starts right back up again except one time started again after about 45 minut?

it could be a short in the wires ask the nearest mechanic for advice but whatever you do you have to spend a little money pretty much the consensus on the web is that when the case Position Sensor (CKP) goes bad, the engine will die intermittently. Like on the freeway travelling 65mph - and you try to coast to the shoulder. Replace the CKP first. If that doesn't work, it may be the distributor. Unfortunately, most dealerships/service shops recommend these fixes in the reverse order, and the $500 distributor usually doesn't do the trick. CKP - $90 part, 90 mins. to replace yourself. my does the same I'm about to change the Egr valve if the EGR valve is not working right it will make the car stall take apart the valve and clean it or buy a new like i did 90.00 napa

TRY THE COMBATATION OF THE MAP SENSOR , CRANKSHAFT AND CAMSHAFT SENSORS THAT SHOULD DO THE TRICK. DID IT TO MY 1996 SEBRING CONVERTABLE AND IT RAN GREAT.

The oil and battery lights might be showing on your shogun when driving due to an electrical problem. A mechanic can properly diagnose the problem.

No, a battery cannot recharge itself. The alternator converts some of the engine's energy into electrical energy which is then stored in the battery. If a battery is not getting recharged under normal driving conditions, you either have a problem with the charging system or a failed battery. You can't know without testing. On the other hand, sometimes a dead battery can get what's called a "surface charge". A surface charge just means that when you were cranking last time, you depleated all of the readily available electrical charge. By letting the battery sit for a while, "entropy" has allowed some of the chemical reaction to spread out over all of the battery plates... but the battery cannot "create" electrical energy.

Engine Failure to Run if Battery is "Dead"Yes, a dead battery can not provide adequate electrical power to the ignition system and thus the engine cannot continue to run. Depending on the vehicle and electrical system, this can happen, even if the battery is not dead, but only to "low."

It is important to have the electrical system fully functional in a vehicle. The power will dry up in a car if the alternator or battery is bad.

Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference in a rebuilt alternator and a brand new one. This is a very common problem.

could be a bad cable connection. clean the battery terminals and the clamps on the battery cables. if it continues to do it, check for a bad ground cable from the battery.

It is possible to have a short in the wiring harness to the battery. If there is a lot of corrosion where the cables connect to the battery, this may be and indicator. That is only one possibility.

The battery warning light is normally an indication that the battery is not being charged. In most cases, it means that the alternator is not generating electrical power. Driving a car in this condition does not cause any danger but all electrical power is being supplied by the battery rather than the engine. When the battery discharges, the car will simply stop running. Although it is safe to continue for a short time, it's important to get the car looked at and repaired.

Start with the battery terminals and connections on the other ends of the battery wires. Check the battery itself as a loose plate in the battery could be heating up and shorting the battery for a moment causing the problem.

More likely than not the alternator has failed. Have the electrical system checked at almost any auto parts store for free.

Electrical Failures But Engine Continues to OperateAlthough it is possible, it is not very likely because with an alternator failure, the battery will become discharged, and eventually will "kill" the ignition and thus the engine.This sounds more like a fuse or relay failure.

The battery is only a storage device. The alternator replaces the electrical energy that the battery uses every time you start the engine and every time you turn on an electrical device in the car. If the alternator isn't working or isn't working properly, the battery will eventually discharge. Answer if the alternator is in fact working but you have let the battery run empty, simply getting a jump start might not allow the battery to charge sufficiently once you start driving again. you have to charge the battery up a sufficient amount or the battery will just run out again.

Your battery is weak, or your your alternator is not charging battery.

Yes why not, you can recharge your truck PC by driving around. To recharge the PC first the truck battery should be charged. Driving recharges truck battery because every truck has a power generator inside it but you cannot recharge your truck battery if it is not working properly the acid level of the battery should be maintained properly. Better you check your battery before recharging battery.

A bad fuel pump can cause your 2006 Chrysler 300 engine to shut off. Many times the fuel pump does not give any warning, it just stops working.

Check for loose connection of positive cable at battery, crankshaft position sensor faulty, or ignition module faulty.

If you open part of the circuit (for example, with a switch), the current will stop flowing. Also, if there is no voltage driving the current (for example, if a battery runs empty), no current will flow.

No. Not until now, I haven't had any bad experiences driving my sebring.

The battery in your car does not constantly charge while driving. Electricity is needed to run the headlights, starter, radio, etc. In order to save wear on the alternator/generator, the battery is sometimes used to power these electrical devices as your car's internal sensors see fit. When the battery's charge drops below a certain voltage, the alternator kicks in again to keep the battery at its optimum level.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M. It gets about 22mpg with our around town/highway driving mix of about 70/30.

User Avatar

It is not being drained, it is not equiped for constant recharge as needed....dodge intrepids shut off for no reason while driving because the standard batteries can not handle the load of the electrical components and torque needed to pull its weight over time.......yes, this is the hidden mystery...this is why the lights and everything else continues to work even when the vehicle shuts off at random...it needs a deep cycle battery that can handle the constant recharge of the vehicle along with its electrical components......case solved....dodge is gonna be angry at me now....who cares...these batteries are $180 and up or cheaper.

Although declining, this continues to be a serious problem.
