I had this exact problem, I put my car into neutral(absolutely important that it's in neutral if not the car could jump forward and run you over) and put the Parking Brake on, I took a screw driver, crawled under the front of the car, located the starter and used the screwdriver to short out the starter by pressing it against the 2 bolts, the starter spun then i got back in the car and started it like normal and i have not had that problem since(it's been about 5 months) Check to see if the engine is locked up. 2 reasons i can think of..one, have you installed a new ignition? and the other is the engine seized up. When mine did this it was because the starter was stuck. I got under the front end and found the starter and gave it a good whack. Car started fine after that.
Indirectly. The positive cable on the battery is hooked to the starter. The other wire on the starter post goes up to the 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.
It could be the starter in it. It may be weak or need replaced.
There is not a fusible link between the alternator and starter. There is a regulator on the alternator. The starter is directly connected to the battery, as is the alternator.
Is it charging, if not have you checked wiring to alternator.
Kills alternator? don't you mean kills battery? Installing a new alternator without first charging the battery well (2amp for 8hrs) will quite likely burn up a new alternator as well as being hard on the battery.
starter is going it. round 165 to replace
Alternator on a car is for re cahrging the battery. So you can have a starter motor without a alternator but you wont get far down the road when the battery runs out of power and the car will die.
Since you changed your battery and starter I'm assuming you are getting fuel and spark is your problem. You should check your starter relay, the wires from the relay to your starter, the wires from your battery to the relay, the wires from your locking cylinder to the relay, and your locking cylinder. You might also check your alternator. You can take it to a parts store to have it bench tested for free.
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.
alternator and starter
Bad starter.. direct ground..... stero equipment IG: amplifier being improperly wired . and it is possible to have the wrong alternator or a faulty one.

yes if you dont remove the positive terminal off the battery before unistalling the starter or installing it the lead going to the starter will be hot.
Check the battery cables or starter.
the positive wire that recharges the battery after being drained from the starter
check your wiring,also check to see if theres power leaving the relay.
The alternator produces power to charge the battery. The battery powers the starter to turn the engine over.
You have an open connection from the large alternator output post to the starter main battery post or fuses blown or circuits open feeding the alternator control wiring.
Spark to cylinder (at random)? If yes... How is the timing?
disconnect battery. remove cables at the starter. remove starter mount bolts. remove starter. replace starter. reinstall bolts. reinstall wires. reinstall battery cable.
Test the battery with a digital voltmeter. You should get a reading of 12.6 V if the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged then you know the alternator is functioning properly and your problem is more than likely a defective starter.
If the starter motor is not turning the engine over correctly, this might be because the vehicle battery is flat. If the battery is not charged, this may be because the alternator is not charging correctly. The recommendation here is to pop along to a local garage or autelectrician asking them to check the charge of the battery, the alternator output, and the starter motor operation if necessary.
Well not the starter. The starter is used to start spinning the engine and draws its power from the battery. The alternator uses the engines belt to recharge the battery and to power the cars electronics as well as lights. When you shut the engine off, the power then draws from the battery.
