Why is my car cutting off after I jump it off especially after putting on a new battery and alternator.

Asked by Jul 08, 2015 at 06:01 PM about the 1998 Honda Accord EX V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 1998 honda accord V6 keeps cutting off after I start it. I just replaced the battery and
alternator after the battery exploded due to the alternator OVERcharging (17 volts) the
battery. Every time I jump off the car, it'll start but immediately turn off after 30 secs.
What's wrong?

Check the charging of your alternator again still may be over charging. I no you say it's a new alternator but just check it again. If new alternator is under charging check alternator fuse if the old one was over charging may have blown that fuse.
