If it is a 2006 then you probably need a new battery, which is located under the hood of the car. If the gauges flicker, the battery is probably too dead to start the whole car, but it will still try to start it. Hoped it helped.

I was driving when my 1997 dodge intrepid 3.5 shut off and wouldn't restart and still won't restart , i looked it over and determine i wasn't getting no spark so i changed the plugs , plu


It could be the computer. It could be a relay or something in the wiring harness too.
You would need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures to find the problem.
You need to know if the coil assembly and injectors are getting power from the ASD relay, and if the computer is getting signals from the cam and crank sensors.

Could be a relay or a sensor, where I would start is at the nearest Auto Partts store for a manual. You already know the problem is the fans, you just need to know where the relays, sensors, and/or thermostats are. Don't be thrown off by the temp gauge.

Engine shuts down


The only way to know for sure is to hook a gauge to the rail and check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
Sitting for a few minutes and restarting is normally a sign of a relay or coil cooling off.
There should be a EEC relay that powers the dist module and ECM.
I know you said you have spark, but it could be something else
related.
Also, if you have spark at the right time and no fuel pressure, you should be able to use starting fluid to substitute.
I don't suppose you have dual tanks and the switching valve is the problem ?

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

Crankup and drive get some place and shut it off them sometimes wont restart till it cools. checked relays battery alternater all is good what is wrong ?


If your starter won't turn over after driving and shutting the car off, sometimes, it sounds like your starter is getting stuck/overheating. Replace your starter and this problem should go away.

Battery replaced and now A/C vents front blowers don't work, only floor blowers work. Lights dim, battery gauge flickers down when truck is idle. Check engine light comes on steady, then goes off...


The exact same thing happened to me... my lights don't flicker but my A/C is having the same exact issues.... if you find out what happened please let me know as well.

Is their a fuse for the fuel pump& gas gauge


Will the car start up? I don't know about Suzuki's but on most cars... NO. There is not a single fuse to run both. If the car won't start then most likely it needs a new fuel pump. You can get them as a whole unit that has the fuel gauge regulator and everything already on it. This would fix both problems.
