Our 1999 Kia Sportage was driven through a very bad blizzard, but we got it home. Later we started it up again and warmed it up for about 20 minutes, but it was stuck in the snow. When we tried to drive it out, it suddenly died. Now it will turn over, but will not start. We have charged the battery and checked the fuses which seem fine. The car had plenty of antifreeze, oil and gas. What else could it possibly be?
Check the air intake duct for being partially obstructed with snow. Also, the air filter may be covered with melted snow which turned to ice. If those items check out okay, it could be that the MAP or MAF sensor died. ... Kia Sportage

Odyssey alternator Battery light stays on. Thought it was old battery issue. Replaced it and light still stays on. Measured the new battery when van is running, it was around 12v. Obviously, charging system is not working. Before replacing the alternator, please advise steps to eliminate other possible issues that could cause battery not being charged. As you know alternator is expensive. I want to be sure it is the problem before I spend big money. Thanks.

1997 catera On some starups( maybe 10 out of 50) the battery will not charge, lights are dim and idling is rougher. Giving it a little gas starts the charging. If you drive away without giving gas when this occurs it will not charge. Restarting starts the charging. Otherwise the charging is fine according to the gauge.. However it has gone through 3 batteries in the last 2 years. Good day. I bought this MBZ on ebay (cheap), and it has a nerve wrecking issue. Presently the car has a new battery
Well Marie the reason your vehicle is acting this way is because even though you put new battery in you still have to have a viable altenator to run the vehicle. the battery is only used to start the vehicle and run the radio and lights and other acc ... 1987 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 190 Class

I have a Kia Sedona 2004 with 121,000 miles on it. Last week we accidentally drained the battery with a door light left on overnight. The following day I tried to charge it up by running the engine for a few hours with the air con off. Battery held the charge for a few hours but then died and required a jump start. We replaced the battery and it starts just fine but since the time we tried to charge the battery up the air con will not turn on. It blows air but the green LED on the air con an

My 2000 lexus rx 300 is having an issue with the charging. When I test the charging system by conecting a battery and charger system tester to the battery the meter will jump back and forth from 14 volts to 11 volts rapidly. I removed the alternator and had it checked and it checked out to be in working order. Is there another avenue I should take to resolve this issue.

Electrical Short??? I started having this issue about a month back. Thought I had it resolved but its back. For no apparent reason I went out one morning and the battery was dead. I jumped the car and drove it to work and had no issues the rest of the day. Again the next morning the battery was dead. I pulled the battery and had it charged and test at the local store. Everything tested fine so I dropped the battery back in and for some reason it blew the fuse for the electric door locks. That le

I checked the current codes on my 97 Cadillac Deville D'elegance yesterday, they were: TCS C1232, TCS C1234, PZM B2477, MMM B2148, MMM B2150. I have had it in and out of garages for the past week because of alternator/battery issues. The screen suddenly said "Battery No Charge" and the red battery light came on one night. Within a day it was dead, so I got a new battery. The car still said "Battery No Charge" so I got the alternator rebuilt. It still shows the warning, and noone seems to kno

I have a 1998 Ford WIndstar. It died on us the other day. we put a refurbished alternator in it, changed the clamps that attach to the top of the battery, when the battery is in OUR van and is charged, it will hold the charge running for 1-2 minutes, then the radio goes off, the RPM goes to 0 and then it dings a couple times, then it dies. However, when the battery was in my friends truck it ran it just fine. so its not the battery. we are pretty much stumped. anyone have any ideas? I would grea

1998 Chrysler Town & Country electrical issue. Every 3rd time it has issues starting like it has a dead battery, must jump, then it will start, but often the instrument cluster is dead. Next 2 times will start fine and everything works. Been doing for awhile now. New battery (twice), tested charging system fine....strange and getting annoying. Anyone seen this issue. Please don't respond if you have never worked on these. I'm tired of guesses from people. I'm an electronics engineer, I

I"ve been told its gotta be the computer [ECM] or a bad rebuilt alternater. but i"ve also been told i"d have more issues than just not charging if it was the ECM. 3 different mechanics have told me the alternater SEEMS to be working but the charge isn"t getting to the battery.

My issue is that my car will not start. Now for more details: 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2 ltr. it has an AC Delco Battery. Tried starting it and the first two times it popped once each time. Then after that nothing at all. We tried jumping the car had lights for a little bit but when i went to start it nothing. I know the spark plugs are good those were replaced 2 months ago. Also tried charging the battery with a battery charger but from the get go it says its fully charged.
Bad connection at battery? you are too vague with the symptoms. what does "popped" mean? Does the engine "spin over" or not. If i does not "spin over" and the battery is good, and the connections are tight, when holding the key ion the start position ... 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
I just replaced the battery on my 94 montero and it still wont hold a charge. everything will be fine for a while but then the radio goes out and the spedometer reads 0 mph as well as the RPM. The battery meter says it has no power. The car will then only go about 30 mph so I pulled over and turned it off and it wont start. Finally after turning all everything including the headlights off for 20 mins it started back up but keeps having the same problem. I am charging the battery right now b
