Battery and Alternator are good. Any suggestions before purchasing a starter.
My gas cap was off while I was driving. I do not know how long.

EVAP problems would not be related to your battery and alternator. Does the car start if you put a gas cap on it?

no. The positive battery wire has been giving me problems.

If the positive battery wire is a problem then you need to take care of it.

Went the car and it started after a day.

going through the whole wiring system tomorrow to replace wires.
