I stopped at traffic light and my car went off and won’t start again. I had it towed home, it will jump start and keep on running as long as the jump start pack stays connected. As soon as i disconnect the jumpstarter it shuts off. There are no warning lights on the dash while engine is running. My guess is alternator is bad and car ran on battery till battery was discharged and the it stopped on the road. Now if this was the case shouldn’t there be a battery and/or break warning light on the dash while car is running on battery?
Also if it were a battery problem then the car should run on power from the alternator once it’s jump started right? In which case there should be a battery warning light on the dash right? I know the dash lights aren’t bad because when i turn the key to the on position all the lights show up, including the battery light. I will like to take out the alternator and bring it the the shop for testing but before doing this i’ll like some input since i’m not very convinced it’s the alternator because there’s no battery signal on the dash while engine is running on battery.
