1999 ford explorer wont start back up

Asked by Jan 28, 2012 at 12:21 PM about the 1999 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My sister has a 1999 ford exolorer and she says it will start with a jump and stay running and driving, but will not start back up after being shut off, wich leads me to believe that it is not the altenator.I am thinking it is a bad connection somewhere. I live a long way away and am trying to figure it out before i go and attempt to fix it. Any help would be greatfull. thank you

Bad battery; once it starts its running on the altenator. The battery isnt taking a charge so canot re-start. If it were the alt you would have a warning light, also the car would die after perhaps a half hour of driving, once the battery was depleted.
