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

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.

Does the battery in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring have the capability to recharge itself?

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.

What is wrong with the battery if it wont stay charged with a new alternator on a Chrysler 5Th avenue?

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.

Why does my 96 Ford Taurus lose electrical power while driving?

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 car would not start after driving for a period of time but jump starting would start it but if you check the battery and the alternator they are perfectly fine. stater 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.

What would cause 1999 Chrysler lhs to shut off without any warning while driving?

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.

While driving your car stops and the electrical system fails then wont start but starts up after a minute or so. what can i do to fix it?

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.

If your battery is completely dead can your car cut off while driving?

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."

Is it safe to drive if the battery light is on?

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.

Why did your battery light come on while driving?

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

Why does the battery voltage fluctuate from 14.4 volts to 12.6 volts and back again while driving?

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.

What would cause a new battery to keep going dead on a 2003 Dodge Neon?

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.

Can you recharge a truck PC by driving around?

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.
