You may have a burned out 'fuse link' in the heavy wire running from the alternator to the starter solenoid (+ battery cable side). Check for proper charging by measuring the battery voltage with engine running--it should measure 13.5 volts DC to 14. ... 1990 Nissan Minivan

Took the battery out to replace the fron left headlight. Once we put the batter back the car would not start and all lights inside and out started flashing.

Hi, our 2003 focus wont start. The engine light, the ignition light and the oil light are all on. We have checked the battery and all the fuses but nothing there seems wrong. We've only had this car for about 3months, when we got it we had to get the fuel gage fixed, and there was a noise in the front of the car which the mechanic said was a fan belt & that he had fixed it. 2 weeks ago the noise was back and the ignition light came on, took it to the mechanic and we had to get a new alternator.
