    I would replace the fuel filter. As you run the car the filter screen becomes cloged. When it sits, all the junk settles back down clearing the screen only to be stired up again when it's running. Good Luck

Time to have the battery , alternator tested by an accredited auto electrical shop
batteries test good but fail if a load tester is used and having to jump start it indicates that the battery is not good
If there is not enough power available to run the ECM then it will die when the battery voltage drops below required voltage
the fact that ir runs for a while and dies indicates that the alternator is not producing sufficient power to run the battery and the ECM again indicating a bad battery

SOURCE: Stalls when at idle after changing battery

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

My car has stalled while driving before and after leaving the shop. When i get the battery charged and put it back in my car starts fine but stalls when the battery runs out of juice. Ive had my alternator...


What's the voltage at the battery with the car running ? Testing an not guessing is the way to do proper diagnostic's ! Battery light staying on , is there B+ voltage at the alternator connection's ? A new alternator won't make a bit of difference if no power to the alternator . Looking at a wiring diagram an testing the electrical circuit ,doing voltage drop testing , plus checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Some vehicle's charging systems are computer controlled . And looking at a wiring diagram i see your vehicles charging system is computer controlled . If you have done so already , take it to the dealer

My 2006 ford escape won't start but battery and alternator are good so why?


If the alternator is good and the battery is good then it's you're starter. Just in case check if you can jump start it then unplug the battery and jumper cable's if you're car keep's running then you're alternator is good if it die's as soon as you unplug battery/cables then you're alternator is died.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Went to work... everything was fine.. came out 9 hours later.. wouldn't start... jumped it.. got it home.. tried to start it..won't... bad battery? alternator? needs a new serpentine belt?


Replace battery .Start car warm to normal, check alternator by removing battery negitave cable, if the engine quits running replace alternator if it keeps running the alternator is fine. As far as the serpentine belt goes it will not prevent the car from starting.However if the belt looks like it needs to be replaced then it might be a good idea to do so.Good Luck.

95 camaro 3.8 v6 . was driving and car suddenly died .charged battery over night. had it tested, was good. removed starter, it too tested fine. All I get when i try to start is a click. cleaned connections...


The starter is not the issue as you say the car suddenly died. That would not be caused by a bad starter or solenoid.

You car needs the battery to be charged to continue to run. While normally the alternator or charging light would usually come on, I think it has something to do with your alternaor not keeping the charge up on the battery. Without a strong charge, there would not be enough power to turn the engine over, which would explain the starter issue.

The fact that you said the battery had been charged overnight and there wasn't enough power to turn the starter over bothers me. While someone has told you the battery is good, I would take it somewhere else for a 2nd opinion. I have a feeling that the battery is at the root of the problem.

start the vehicle up and unhook the pos cable from the battery if it dies its going to be a bad alternator or the battery has gone bad.one sure way to know if its the alternator is to un hook the pos cable while the car is running.they can test good even when they arent.
