I have a 1995 toyota tacoma. We have replaced the battery and the alternator.
Today while driving it to work it shut off again and won't start. It acts like the
battery isnt charging or something. We have no clue what it could be. HELP

the BATTERY~ connections must be shiny...NEW battery like I have to get after the charge would not take...assure the connection to the motor has a clean bolt and connecting lug...be sure the Chassis ground is also assuredly connected...this might be the trouble ...the cable has a flaw that only shows itself when jiggled around and separated~...that's a theory anyways...NEW cables and battery and it's off to the races~

Please define "won't start". Is it flat out dead? Like all you get is a click? Or can you crank it over forever and the engine won't fire up like it's not getting fuel? Need to know this for a better diagnosis.
