Check alternator out-put Hook a volt meter up to battery With engine running reading should be 13.8-14.2 If under this alternator not charging battery sufficiently
If it won't turn over, it means your battery is dead or your connections are bad. If the car stopped while driving it likely means t he alternator has gone bad and the battery was drained to keep the car running as long as it could.
Check for loose or corroded battery cables Check for a loose ground cable
The reason your 2001 Hyundai Sonata lost all power while you were driving and stalled and won't start again is either the battery or the alternator. If you have no power you most likely have an alternator problem.
Do the headlamps work while cranking the starter? If not focus on your battery and cables. Jump start the car and have the system tested before you throw more dollar bills at this problem; it could be the alternator but have it tested first.
while i was driving my car shuts off at nite while the lights are on, and i got it started back up and shuts off and comes back on ******************************************************** If you have a bad alternator it can cause starting problems. More likely because you were driving and not charging the battery, while draining it. The alternator re-charges while you drive. When you turned it off & came back the next day there was not enough juice.
check the radiator. ;)
just happen to me today the flashing battery light means your alternator is going bad and it is draining your battery..so your car may crank a few minutes before, but may put you down while you're out and about so be careful where you drive, because your battery can lose power in less than a minute of driving because of the alternator..car will stall instantly.
your alternator is bad even if you charge your battery it could still die because the battery is being wasted while you drive
Your battery is weak, or your your alternator is not charging battery.
Loose connection somewhere. Bad switch maybe.
Alternator is defective or battery has a dead cell.
check battery cables at battery may be lose.
The alternator died first and drained your battery shortly thereafter.
Your car lost power while you were driving and it will not start now because the battery is depleted.
On a Canon, usually a lighting symbol in the battery icon, or the battery icon will have moving bars.
