well guys i got my car a little over two weeks ago, everything has been fine and good till this morning. go out to start it, click click. ****. turn the car into accessorys and the radio comes on, lights works everything works but it will not start when ever i hit a button or use the turn signals the volt meter jumps a bit. get a jump. after i get the jump runs good for about 10-15 minuits with the volt meter jumping all over the place and my climate control shuting it self off every few secons, then it died. i am guessing it is probley the alternator. battery terminals are clean, the ground is good. what would be your sugestion?

Using a multi meter can you get a voltage reading from the battery with the car running?

with the key in the crank position, check the voltage at the battery (whether it cranks or not).....voltage should not fall below 10.5V....ideally it should stay above 11V.....if it is in the vicinity of 10.5V or lower, battery is bad and/or cables are corroded inside the insulation and/or are not tightened down properly

it was a combo of both battery and altenator, so its being fixed as we speek
