History: 2 days ago the battery light came on. Car ran fine that evening. The next morning. The tach stopped working. a minute later the speedometer stopped working. Then, another minute later, the car began running rough. Then died. Car would not start. Starter just chattered. Replaced battery and drove to nearest autozone. had charging system checked. Wasn't charging. Replaced 7.5 A Alternator fuse (#2 fuse). Car started. Battery light went off and verified charging. Drove it 97 miles without


Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't ... 2000 Ford Contour

How do I replace my alternator on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee? I think the battery just needs to be replaced...but yesterday my car wouldn't start, after trying to jump it, it still wouldn't start. We determined that the starter fuse had blown and replaced that and then tried starting the car again. Car still wouldn't start, we tried jumping the car again and the car started. I drove the car home (30 minutes) and then this morning the car would not start again. We are planning on getting a new b

We have a Dodge Caliber and when we went to start the car all the dash lights came on but the engine would not crank at all. Tried to jump battery, nothing. The doors would not lock or unlock with the key bob. Checked the fuses and when I removed then replaced the fuses for the IOD Sencor the car started right up, and the key bob worked to lock and unlock the doors. We all so have a problem with the dash lights going on and off while driving if we hit a bumb just right.

Problem started when son left inside lights on overnight. Charged battery and drove for about 10 minutes and car died. Replaced battery and car would not start. Replaced starter and car will still not start. Will not even turn over: only goes 'click'. need help. Oil was a little low, but engine never got close to hot let alone overheated. any ideas?


Chechk and double check the cables from the battery to the ground and to the starter. One of these may be bad. I assume when you replaced the battery it was fully charged? The clicking sound lets me know your getting power to the key switch and volta ... 2001 Dodge Intrepid

I drove the car for about two hours and smelled something burning for a minute(Melted 15 amp fuse under dash for Ignition) The holder that holds several fuses was pretty warm, indicating some type of a short. Oh, the car would not start again until I replaced the fuse. It appears that the alternator charging circuit is keeping the ignition running, even after the 15 amp fuse heats and blows. Because the car if already running, continues to do so with the blown fuse until turned off. I had to d


Any time a fuse gets hot, or even the wiring, or connections, is from a poor connection or an excessive draw. It sounds like from what you are saying that the starter may be failing. Do look closely at the the fuse area for a fuse holder that may hav ... Suzuki Samurai

Wont start i drove the car a couple times during the day. I tried to start it later in day and it would not start. I had someone jump it, but it wouldn't start. there was no sound at all coming from the car while trying to start it. I know it was missing @ 6th plug, but that wouldnt keep it from starting. also the maf sensor needs replaced, but that wouldnt keep it from starting either. Could it be a fuse or a relay?

My 1997 Mitsubishi mirage was recently repaired and the repairer had a new key cut to replace the one he lost. I drove the car home using this key. When I used the original manufacturers key my engine would not start. Now the new key will not start the car either. A mechanic has looked at the car and says he can't find a mechanical problem. His scanner is displaying 'immobiliser'. What does this mean?

Started car this afternoon for short errand. Drove 8 miles to store and when ready to leave store car would not crank, engine would spin but would not start. Waited about 20 minutes checking under hood for any loose wiring and repeatedly tried starting engine. Was about to give up and tried 1 last time and while trying to start engine repeatedly patted foot pedal and then car finally started. My son also said it seemed weaker while driving as far as power did not have the normal feel. 217k miles

Okay, this car has been giving me alot of problems. Currently I am experiencing a starting problem with the vehicle. This seems to occur when the engine is warm, yet sometimes even then it starts perfectly. I have replaced several parts on the vehicle, had a recent major service etc. I have been told my fusebox needs replacing - its worn out and the one fuse has been burnt. Yet my friend took a look at it and it seems okay to him... Would a faulty fusebox cause such behaviour in the vehicle?

Blowing Fuses A month ago i had the battery changed in my 01 zx3 focus. Everthing was hooked up correctly, but now my car is blowing the 30 amp fuse under in the engine that controls the car starting. If i replace it it will be ok for about a week or 2 then it blows again. I believe it has to be somewhere between the battery and the starter, because that is all that controls. I know its not the alternator because the battery still is holding a charge. What would be causing this?
