If you get the battery light on the dash, is the alternator. If not is the battery.

If it was the battery or the alternator it wouldn't start back up. Do any lights come up on the dash?

if is the alternator it will start but it won't charge the battery well and then it would stop the car. If its the battery it will start but you might have some features that won't work as usual.


If its the alternator and its not charing then the battery would die hence why the vehicle would turn off and if the battery is dead it wouldn't start again by just putting it in neutral. Dumb. Ass.


Lmao thanks for sharing need that ive has same experiences
