Last night by battery light came on so i thought I needed and alternator. Took the alternator off had it tested and tested good so i thought i was due for a battery so i got a new battery and terminals and put it in along with my old alternator. Well now it wont start or turn over. The only thing that comes on is my headlights. Any thoughts

After taking an alternator out and bringing it down to the store, it can jarred enough to get it working again for a bench testing at Advanced grin This just happened today with a friend of mine on a 90 3.3l Voy. winkgrin

Did it start at all and the battery light came back on right away. Then die after running and now will not restart?

Could be something with the new battery terms also?

If you can, I would charge the battery up and have the alt. tested in car, while the eng. is running, to rule out the alt...

Good luck!

Maybe the new battery is bad?

I might be wrong, but even if the Alt was bad it should at least start with a new battery right?

Yep, right on Dtro.

You are also right on the battery. Some times you can get a bad one.

I just have a hunch (if in fact the eng. would not turn over after doing this and he has headlights) since he said he replaced the battery terminals, he may have missed a ground or positive wire or something else.

Could still be a bad battery? If it is not turning over now, there is two concerns now. The battery light issue he started out with and now it will not turn over or start.

More info is needed wink

Well i tried the old battery after the new battery wouldnt do anything other then headlights and the door dinger. Same thing as the new battery. Then i tried putting the old battery terminals back on. Same thing. I dont think I missed a wire just because there was only 1 for the positive and 1 for the negative

Try checking the fuses, you may have blown one while installing the battery.

You also may want to check both of your battery cables for corrosion and make sure that they're snug.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
