What is wrong when a car loses power and cuts out?

Either your battery is dead and wont accept a charge or your alternator has stopped charging the battery due to a blown fuse, loose or damaged wiring, loose or broken drive belt or the alternator itself has gone bad.

You thought your battery died you boosted your car for ten minutes started driving and your car slowly turned off in the middle of the street at a stop light What does this mean?

There is a good chance that your alternator has stopped working. It could also be just a loose wire from the alternator to the battery that is not letting the battery charge. Also it could be a bad battery. When a cell in a battery dies it will hold a charge for a short period of time but then rapidly die. Get the battery checked first. they the wires, then the alternator.

How do you know if your alternator is out in a 2004 Ford Freestar?

I just went through this with my Windstar - stopped by my favorite Autozone and they did a pretty thorough electrical test, including the alternator and battery. Most of the auto parts stores offer free testing. Easiest thing to do is remove the positive connection to your battery if you Freestar stalls....Alternator is no good(just happened to me)

If your 2001 Jeep Commander randomly stopped working and won't turn on, you likely have one of two problems. Your battery is dead, or your alternator is dead.
