clean your battery terminals...im fairly positive that it could be that
Yeah, I had a similar problem when I installed my stereo... First check to make you put them on securely and two get some baking soda and water and scrub those down...

It sounds like you aren't getting a good connection...

Let us know,

Check engine light on? If so what are the codes? In no SES then I would agree about bad battery connections. Why did you disconnect the battery? What were you working on at the time?

:scratch: Was that supposed to be English? We can't help if we can't understand what you are trying to say. Sounds like your terminals were corroded. Clean the ring terminals, clean the battery posts, and verify the terminals are on snug. If that doesn't work have your battery tested. If the battery comes back as good then replace your grounding cable and ring terminal.

thats were the battery and the cables connects.... is it the little rings
:agreed: clean the inside of the rings. check and make sure the ground cable (connects negative/black ring terminal to the car's metal chassis/frame) and verify that it is connected tightly and that the cable itself is not brittle. If it is then replace it.

my 00 gt gave me that problem and left me stranded at the side of the road once...... i had replaced the alternator for an aftermarket autozone one and the alternator died after just 4 months, warranty still covered it so i exchanged it and its been 7 months, and 5k miles trouble free on dat department... so just check and c if u smell it burned, or any visible signs of burned.. good luck.

Yea autozone tested your battery power to ee if your battery wes good, they didnt check your actual connection to the terminals on top of the battery...that white stuff you wre talking about is corrosion...that makes a bad connection.. take off the cables that lead to the positive and negative terminals on the battery and clean them very good with a wire brush (clean both the terminals and the cables) then reconnect the cables to the terminals tightly......if that doesnt do the trick then have a ur alternator checked. I doubt its something with the fuses. OH AND YOU REALY NEAD TO LEARN HOW TO SPEAK/TYPE

More English and less Engrish if you want specific help. Why not post up a list of things that you have already tried, for starters. I get the feeling that you have not even tried the tips already posted.

Also, the search function does work. Test it out!

problem fix now is the air conditioner when i turn it on my car turns off right away.....and i heard that when u take off the battery and when u put it back on you can feel the car rough because they say that it resets everything it takes about a week or so to get back to normal is that true?
