car wont start new battery & new alternator


Recommended Posts

Try a new shop. Or dealer. Can u get a refund on battery or alternator? I think ur mechanic owes you an explanation. Unless its a family member.

Promblems could be:

1. Bad battery ground;

2. During repairs, connections to alternator and/or battery not properly secured;

3. Battery or ignition fuse(s) blown (use Owner's Manual in glove box to determine where fuses are and check);

4. Positive/negative battery connection(s);

5. Starter;

6. Security system problem.

Best chance of determining what's going on is to see if there is a trouble code(s).

I would start with running the OBD codes, paying special attention to those starting with P or thrown by the PCM that are CURRENT.
