Re: having a problem with my altantor

Do you have some type of aftermarket power pulleys on your car? If so get rid of them. Especially if you are running a huge stereo system. Now I really don't understand your question that well. You said " i checked the last two i went threw and they were fine" so whats your problem?

I guess you mean the alternators are working but you are not able to start the car? I would say check your battery. Could be its just not putting out enough cca (cold cranking amps)

also check your grounds, make sure they are tight and clean.

Re: having a problem with my altantor

yes tight battery connections, if one or both are loose that will drain your battery. I drove from my house to Lowes one time in the wife's van. I got there bought some stuff for the house then came back out and dead nothing. I was so confused but I popped the hood and started trouble shooting, you know it was a loose ground terminal. Also its winter clean those puppies nothing leaves you stranded on the road better than corrosion on the battery terminals, clean em and use that dy electric grease on them. Some people say na, I am a firm believer in that stuff.
