I had a gradual loss of electrical power while driving a 1999 Ford Escort, resulting in surging and eventual stall. I had the battery load tested and it was acceptable. The alternator was only putting out 11 volts. I removed the alternator and had it tested. The electrical shop replaced the brushes and voltage regulator and it tested O.k. under load. 2 days later the same thing happened after only 2 hours of driving. I boosted the battery for 10 minutes to get the car home. The batery is only at


Test the alternator again to make sure it is putting out the correct voltage. Also if you have a bad connection on the battery and battery cables you can cause arcing and that can drain you battery and will also cause the car to lose electrical power ... 1998 Ford Explorer

A red battery light on dash lit after having a loss of power with noise coming from under Van For awhile actually since dodge changed my timing belt the van has made a noise that sounded like something was scrapping as the engine turned. after about 5 months it would make a random large scrape sound almost like it was in a bind. a month ago I was driving out of town after about 2 hours of constant running it bogged down I thiught it was going to die, it just lost power.

I have a 1991 honda accord EX that i just replaced the alternator and battery on because of the battery light going on and power dying as i drive. once changing both alt and battery, the voltage went up to 14.5, but as i drive the car for a few minutes, the lights all cut off, car starts to drive weird and the voltage drops to about 8.5. I have a new alt and battery so i know its not those, does anyone have suggestions for what other problems it could be?


Even though You have a new alt, that doesnt always mean that its going to work as a new one should. Ive experienced new parts of many different applications being faulty and yes it sucks but thats just life. I would start by having the new alt check ... 1991 Honda Accord

I just bought a 93 Mazda Protege and i was driving it home when i stopped once and then it wouldnt let me change gears anymore(its a standard). I turned the car off and then it wouldnt get any power.... I had a friend help me tighten the battery connection but it is old and corroded. We got the connection and i can start the car now but it still won't shift into any gears. Is it that the battery is not connected well enough to give me enough power to change gears or is it something else. The


Ok, so you got the battery connections ok.\015\012\015\012Now, the shifting into any gears problem is more due to a clutch problem than a battery problem.\015\012\015\012---\015\012\015\012HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEED ... 1993 Mazda Protege

I took my 2006 Mazda 6 in for an oil change yesterday. The mechanic said when he tried to start the car to back it out of the garage, the car would not start. He checked the battery and said it had a bad cell. He jumped the car to start it so we could take it home and I would replace the battery. While driving home, we found the auto down function of the power windows quit working and the drivers door switch for the passenger front power window will not work. The passenger front window will work


Usually the autodown feature needs to be reprogrammed. there are usually 2 ways of doing this. First, roll the window down and hold the switch down for a about 5 seconds and then roll the window up and hold for about 5 seconds. Repeat if it does ... 2006 Mazda 6

2001 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 L, Alternator/Battery problems. While driving the battery light came on and so did other lights. My car died in my drive way. So I bought a new battery, and rebuilt the alternator. Not sure what was happening. I changed both out and my battery light is still coming on and the car is lose power after driving 5-10 minutes. Any advise?


The battery light coming on means the charging system cannot manage the demand on the system - i.e weak battery, defective alternator, bad regulator...Changing parts doesn't necessarily mean the replacements are working. Measure the voltage on ... 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

My 2003 f350 6.0L quit yesterday like it ran out of fuel. After sitting for a few minutes it started but didnt have much power, I was able to drive it home. This morning I turned the key and it fired right up running excellent for about 15 minutes then it quit.Now it idles rough but smoothes out at 1500rpm and has no power. The injectors and fuel filters were just changed. Could this be caused by a weak lift pump.

My problem is that after I drive my 93 jgc (inline 6)for a few miles, it acts like it's starving for gas and starts to lose power. I have to feather the gas pedal to keep it going while it fails to maintain speed. Usually, after being shut down for a few minutes, it again drives ok until a repeat of the power loss. I've changed the fuel filter and fuel pump relay. Don't want to spend any money on this old baby, so hope it's not the fuel pump. Can hear the pump and relay click. Any suggestion


This does look to be a fuel pump going bad (when the demand for more fuel is there a good fuel pump will supply more and a bad pump/pump failing will hesitate) and usually starts making an abnormal sound (hard to tell while driving). When you turn th ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Why won't my '98 Chevy Malibu start, it just clicks??? YET, it HAS POWER!? I have a '98 Chevy Malibu. We turned it off after driving for about 5 minutes that day, came back 5 minutes later and it acted like it had a dead battery ... it just clicked.
