It could be the starter. The alternator only charges a battery.
It could be a bad ECU, if you don't see "check engine" light up when ignition is turned to "ON" position, then It may be that the ECU needs to be replaced.
im gsboi101. If you put a new battery then it could be the white wire from the positive connection that fallen off. Check all wire that suppose to connect to the Postive side of the battery.
i had a problem like that and took it to a shop it was a relay sensor behind the dashboard.it cost around $120. to have it fixed.
I had a similar problem, get a gage that will test the charge of your battery. Test the charge, then take all the wires off of the red clip on the battery and test again to see if it's the same charge, if not - one of those wires is holding ur battery down. Try playing with it - taking off only 1 wire a time and testing it's charge until u find that one wire. U will quickly learn what this wire does, mine turned off my inside car lights, radio, and the ability to roll up windows when car is turned off before i open door. to know if it's ur alternator, turn on ur car, then take off the red clip from the battery. if the car stays on, it's not ur alternator. Ur battery only starts ur car, the alternator holds the charge to keep it on. So if the carn turns off when u take off the red clip to ur battery, chances are - it's ur alternator
If u have an off market alarm, this could do this too. I had a kill switch on my Prestige alarm, and i had to completely remove the alarm when my alarm started acting up and my kill switch was disabled.
We probably need more information. You can pretty much guarantee it's not the alternator.
Does it turn over at all? If it DOES then it's not the starter, battery or alternator. You need to make sure you're getting spark and that it's not something a little deeper than you think. If it DOESN'T then it's probably the starter, the starter solenoid or the main fuse. Check the fuse box and make sure all the fuses look fine. Your next step would be to replace the starter and/or solenoid after making sure the wires to them are not broken somewhere.
The most common reason for a vehicle not to turn over is a bad alternator. If the alternator is not charging the battery the engine will not start, regardless of the battery age.
Check your alternator--a lot of times they go about the same time (for no reason).
As long as the battery is fully charged it will start no matter the condition of the alternator. Eventually the battery will run down if the alternator is not keeping it charged.
Yes, the battery starts the engine, and as long as the battery is fully charged the engine will start. The battery will loose it's charge if the alternator is defective and not replenishing the charge of the battery but the alternator has nothing to do with starting the engine.
It will start if there is enough charge in the battery to turn the engine over. However if the alternator is weak then the battery will not be charged fully.
No, your battery supplies power to the starter. However if your alternator is defective then it will not supply power to the battery and the battery will soon be depleted.
did you unhook the battery before replacing the alternator
the battery job is to start the car so the alternator will kick in after the car is running
Yes it can as long as the battery is charged . The purpose of the alternator is to put the power used back into the battery
Yes it can as long as the battery is charged . The purpose of the alternator is to put the power used back into the battery.
If the battery is fully charged and the starter is working properly it will turn over and start. The alternators sole purpose is to supply voltage to the vehicle and battery when the engine is running. When the engine is not running the alternator has nothing to do with starting the engine. If the alternator went bad and the battery was discharged then you will have to charge the battery before it will be able to start the engine. Do not jump start the engine with a dead battery if you can avoid it. This puts a strain on the alternator trying to recharge a dead battery and can damage the alternator, even a new one.
The battery does not have sufficient voltage to start the car when it's cold. Have the battery checked out. If it still goes click click after running the car for a while, have the alternator checked also. A bad battery will not hold a charge and a bad alternator will not recharge the battery, (That is the reason to have the battery checked first). Make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.
the batteries only serve to start the car and the alternator. I'm not sure if it would be your alternator but it's not the battery.
The problem isn't your batter or alternator or starter then. Start looking into your fuel management system. Possibly your fuel pump, injectors, etc.
usualy if the alternator is not defective then its the battery. you should start by cleaning the battery post. then you could check the terminal wire that runs from the battery post to the alternator. if thats not it you should check the ground on the alternator.
The answer is no . The battery starts you vehicle , the alternator charges the battery so if your alternator is bad your battery is not receiving a charge which will cause a "no start" condition.
That could be the alternator or the battery. Try jump starting your car with another car's battery. If it still does not start, it is probably the alternator. If it starts, your battery is dead.
Check for a bad fusable link at alternator
could be the alternator. could be the battery, the alternator charges the battery but does not stop the battery holding a charge.could also be a bad starter motor. take alternator off and have it tested. most places will test for free
If the car does not stay running , or wont start at all on jumping? First thought no gas. Also ignition system. alternator mainly the reason you had no power to start in the first place no battery power, this comes from the turning alternator if damaged will not maintain power to spark and no power to recharge battery.
As long as the battery is charged
Check your battery and alternator.
YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.
Possibly a bad alternator. The Alternator charges the battery when the vehicle is running. If the battery is not being charged this could cause the vehicle not to start.
