Seized Up... wow very bad response. Check to make sure your battery terminals are good and cleaned. Be sure also that all wires are properly connected. Re-check your installation and try it. If it clicked you may need to replace the terminal connectors with some brass ones. I always use those and they work GREAT!!!!
The alternator is not charging the battery, therefore, the coil is getting it's charge only from the battery.
make sure the small wire is hook to the post
It sounds like you have a break in the wire which connects your alternator to your battery, get it checked out.
Make sure the battery cables are making good contact with the battery and are clean and tight.
something is draining the battery. a new battery will last a couple days if just starting the car. even if your alternator is bad.
Battery is dead?
i had this happen once on an 03 dodge minivan. the alternator went bad and the battery was going dead but had enough power to get the engine started. once i replaced the alternator and charged the battery the gauges worked again. good luck!
Yes, the car can be started with the battery charger attached to the battery as a boost.I been doing that for years.
I had the same problem on my '96 golf mk 3, it can be either a) not making contact on battery terminals or b) the battery needs to be replaced... Hope it helps 1) new battery may be the needed if its not solved, check the fuses (couple need be replaced) ,i did that started working.
This is not a battery problem. Your charging system, the alternator, is not putting out enough juice to charge the battery until you reach 4000 rpm. Have the alternator and charging system checked.
My epc light came on because of battery failure. My battery was acting funny and barely starting the car. I went to autozone and had them check my battery which ended up having a bad cell. I replaced the battery and the car easily started up. After the car started the light never came back on.
It is definitely caused by a problemtic cooling fan relay. When the bad relay shorts internally, it causes the fan to stay on at all times which drains the battery.
Assuming it started and ran before you changed the battery, and changing the battery actually is when the problem began, the starter relay wire has been left off and needs to be connected at the battery terminal. I would need more information to diagnose it further.
First, why was the battery replaced? If there was a pre-existing problem (like a bad starter, for example), replacing the battery will not solve the problem. If, however, the car started fine before battery replacement, then the problem could be that the battery terminals (clamps) were not sufficiently tightened. Don't laugh, but there have been instances where the plastic cap(s) covering the new battery's positive and negative terminals were not removed (duh!). Remove those plastic caps.
Chances are the battery cable ends needs tightened or replaced. Or you need a new battery, or you may need a new starter, or you may need a new alternator. I started with the most simple things first.
Sounds like a pulley may be freezing up. Have a mechanic check the pulleys.
The relay is right behind the battery. The lead got bumped off when removing the battery to get access to the blower motor.
Ever tried replacing the starter negative battery cable is often overlooked double check it and replace any corroded wires or battery clamps
I have a 1993 silverado that was doing the same thing, and the problem turned out to be a bad regulator inside my brand new alternator. Ireplaced it and went ahead and replaced the battery, I haven't had the problem since! Hope this helps.

This same thing happened to me. The battery light would come on but my car would run fine then a few days later my engine started overheating and it turned out the fan belt had went. Once i replaced the fan belt everything was fine.
I took the vehicle to the dealer service department. It turns out the vehicle battery was not providing the correct voltage. Once the battery was replaced, vehicle is running properly again. In the future I will check battery condition / voltage first.
The same way you started it before replacing the battery.
bad electrical connection.some where.
The USA got its start from British Puritans seeking religious freedom.
Remove the starter and haeit checked at auto parts for amp draw Check the alternator to see if it is keeping the battery charged Check engine ignition timing may be too far advanced
