Thank you Tim for your input..It actually is not the serpentine belt as it is on the other side of the car right next to the engin
Hi Luke. Thanks for the reply. If I'm understanding you correctly, the other belt (which I believe is on the driver side of the engine, near the front) is referred to as the accessory belt. This belt is the one...

Car won’t start, battery is good. Head lights in dash won’t come on. Radio comes on. Can’t lock doors.

Won't start
