Soooo... you may ask what was so "great" today, well, i`ve just got back home,
Today my day started like any other average day, Morning breakfast, than some stuff around home, than work till 9pm, than short trip home.... almost, during that short trip home (it was raining of course, not pouring though)my Alfa cut off on me once on high revs, but it started without problems again, than suddenly, no power, and she died... no extraordinary sounds or anything like that, just plain quiet... and, no crank! AT ALL!! tried to jump start from state trooper (Thank you dear State Trooper) but still no crank :(. good thing that my friend was passing by (talking about a coincidence) so he got me safely home where i`ve got in my volvo and went back to tow my little red car back home...
And i`ve just replaced starter, motor mounts, water pump, top...
I wander what could go wrong...
could that be caused by bad alternator-> poor charging? (my red charging light was very very very dim while using windshield wipers) if I would not figure it out i think I will go with my wife`s suggestion and either part it or sell it... I`m so sad...
Hope you got better day that I did!

Main battery cable really loose on the starter?

Junction block wire on the fender clean and tight?


Just reachin'.....
Thank you for response, i was thinking if it could be main cable on starter, because i`ve just replaced that little bugger, but that would not be the cause for loss of power, though you got me thinking about that ground....
Ill get into that tomorrow morning, good night.

if you had the little red light going for a while..it could be not charging..driving in the rain, and with you lights on will slowly kill the battery...i had this problem before caught me twice..get a dig. volt/amp meter, and check your volts.... and don't listen to your wife.. she is just jelious of you other 'girl freind':)
