Sounds like your alternater is not fixed. Your car ran off of battery power till you drained it. Complete alternater repair and charge battery. You can check if your alternater works by starting car and disconnect positive cable if it stays running your alternate is fixed. Shut car off and replace positive cable.

2000cadilac devile just replaced serpintine belt now car wont start ,just clicks..take off serpintine belt and will start r i ght u 0 what could it be???


Most likely one of the things that the belt drives is frozen. Check that your water pump, power steering pump, alternator, etc all turn without the belt.

2000 chevy malibu ...car won't start. I have a two month old battery. When the car is off, after I tried to start it, I can still hear a buzzing noise in the dash behind the stereo. The serpintine, drive...


check the voltage to battery. battery voltage at battery should be be at least 12.6 or higher with car off. when running at battery should be at least 14.1 to 14.7, try this. get a jump start, then while running disconnect the negative cable to battery. car chould still run. but if it quits when disconnecting negative cable then you have an alternator problem. or the belt.

Changing alternator on 99 dodge ram truck 5.9L engine...anything I need to do before loosening the alternator bolts?


always take the negative battery terminal off to avoid shorting the charge wire. Next, remove the serpentine belt by twisting the tensioner loose. Then you can remove the alternator bolts. Let me know if you have more questions.

I need to know how to tighten the serpintine belt. On a 500sl 1990 benz


You need to tighten the idler/tensioner pulley that is o the top right as you look at the belt. There is a lock nut/bolt on the front then a long threaded bolt kind of on top and just behind the pulley. If the belt and pulley or old and this just started making a noise , stop and order a belt and pulley. Once pressure is taken off the old pulley it will usually fall apart.

Alternator


First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.
