2006 Charger Daytona stopped dead this morning (Electrical?)
OK my Charger stopped dead this morning, looks like a short somewhere.
Was going out car started great, was about to leave when I realized that I didn't have any windshield washer. So filled it, closed the hood.
Start started for 1 second then went dead.
Now it won't turn at all, but if I put the keys to acessories I get dash lit up. Interior lights come one.
But if I turn on the headlights, everything dies and sounds like a breaker is cycling.
Gets even worst if I stop on the breaks, looks like everything goes dead and the radio resets.
How can I even start to trouble shoot this?
hey i work at sears automotive, i have to deal with this everyday so hopefully i can help. When you step on your brakes or turn your headlights on that puts a "load" on your alternator. You're battery on powers the car on start up. After it's running the alternator takes over and does all the work. If it's running and you turn the headlights on and it dies then your alternator is no longer strong enough to handle the load. which means it's on it's deathbed. I bet you anything that it's your alternator. let me know what happens.
