Why my car won’t start?

Asked by Guru9TLTQZ Mar 21, 2021 at 02:00 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Impala SS FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

May car just stopped running at a red light, it
sound like it wants to crank but it isn’t catching.  

1 Answer


If it suddenly died at the light and is now having trouble starting, the first thing I'd check is your battery and alternator. A bad alternator won't provide enough electricity to power all of the car's systems, which will lead to the battery losing charge, which could leave it with insufficient power to start the car.
