Many years ago, when we had a Toyota motor it would do the same thing. The problem was fixed by a motor electrician–a poorly-made connector in the engine was overheating and this was causing an open-circut to the electrical system.

Answer #5

It can be more than just the battery….it could also be a choke sensor…they get dirty and they can stop working….my car kept doing that, and I took it in many times to no avail. Then I found a mechanic who figured it out. I had to get that sensor cleaned every year.

If the battery isn’t charging while you drive, then your alternator is shot….not to mention, if your battery is dead, it takes a jump to start it.
