Q: Car stalled and now won't crank

asked by on

Car stalled and now I can't get it to crank.

A: If your lights are not coming on you could ...

If your lights are not coming on you could have alternator failure. When the alternator fails, the car simply switches over to the battery for its electrical needs. The problem with that is that without the alternator, the battery drains very quickly. Once the battery is drained the vehicle will simply die. Charging the battery will get the car going until the battery is drained again. A charging system test will verify if in fact this is the case. Consider using YourMechanic to help you diagnose your stalling issue.
