#1 Post by -SLEEPER- » Thu Sep 16, 2010 5:03 pm

atm my car needs a jump everytime i want to start it..... i put a new altinator on it..... i know the altinator is workin right cuz it will stay runnin for as long as i need it to after wards even driving... but i mean i can start it let it run, turn it off and start it back up right away but if i wait like 10 mins it wont even turn over...... what could be the problem?? i was told battery is junk or starter is shortin out.... and the door has shocked me a few times i dont know if that has anything to do with it but i just figured i would throw that in there..... and oppinions of what could be happening please let me know....

we will say your alternator is charging,, turn your head lamps on , radio and blower motor for 10 minutes with the engine OFF then see if it will restart , if not, replace the battery,,, if your still not sure then go to the nearest auto parts buy a cheapo volt meter and test your alternator output, should read around 13.5 to 14.3 , make sure you have a good ground to block and body, also what kind of vehicle and year,,
