I just replaced my alternator and belt on my 93 CS, w/ the 2.8. It won't crank over now. Battery is only 7 months old, but has been sitting for maybe 5 months. I had the battery tested at Napa yesterday. Due to my schedule , (they only could charge and then test it for like 15-20 min.) They said it "looked" to be fine. BUT,the car has been sitting for a few months with the battery unplugged. But I think its still totally drained.
It sounds like the fuel pump is working, radio comes on. Heater blower, headlights. But it still won't crank. I believe we were getting a couple "clicks" from the starter, but nothing more. But to me it seems the battery is still just too dead to crank anything. We tried jumping it, but nothing. It fired fine with a jumpstart about a month or so back, before I swapped the alternator. Is it possible the battery is just too low to do any more? Just thinking what else I am missing. Everything seems to be hooked back up. I have yet to check fuses, or give the starter a whack.
Any ideas gentlemen?
