Today the power steering on my car gave out then the battery died. I bought a new battery and the car started right up. When I went for a test drive, the power steering still wasn't working and then the car died after driving it. I got it to start up again, but whenever I turned on the lights, the car started dying again. What do I need to replace? I was thinking it might be the serpentine belt.


I don't think your serpentine belt is even attached anymore , sounds like it ripped and you keep draining your battery because altenator is not being driven same with the power steering pump. look to see if the belt is still on if it is check the ten ... 1999 Ford Escort

2003 Cadillac CTS-When stopping at a light the car would turn off but was able to restart. Car eventually died and would not restart. Had battery checked then replaced as the battery was bad. Once the new battery was put in the vehicle would not start nor would it take a jump. Had someone take a look at it and was told the fuel pump was bad. I replaced the fuel pump and filter along with an oil change. The car ran fine for a few days then died when coming to a stop. Car will not start or accept

1998 Explorer limited edition - battery light on, car just died and battery wont turn on to start car or allow me to roll up windows. is this something i can fix with just a new battery? does it involve the alternator? if i let it sit awhile could it start again? if it does start will it make it to the shop or will it die while i am driving again?


This really does sound like an alternator problem. If you let the car sit for a while, it may develop enough surface sharge to start the car, but it will only get you about 1/4 mile before it stalls again. Technically, with an operational alternato ... 1998 Ford Explorer

I was in the store the other day & the alarm went off on my 97 acura tl 3.2 . When I came out the store everything had died out including the battery which was already weak. I put a new battery in and car still wont start - it won't turn over. I towed car to my mechanic and he thinks the alarm may have disabled the car . He has tried to reset alarm by turning key (locking & unlocking ) in drivers and passengers door but car still wont start . He says theres no juice going to the starter .

I have a 1992 Saturn sl2. I recently had to replace the battery and the starter. The car has been fine but one day it took a few turns of the key to start. When I reached my destination I turned off my car. Five minutes later it refused to start and a click click click sound started up by the starter under the hood. It repeatedly clicked while getting no power, and all my gauge needles dropped and wavered back and forth while my battery apparently died. Any thoughts on what could be causin
