    2 weeks ago when I went to turn on my car to go to work it wouldn't start:shrug: I jump started it and it turned off on me like a mile away. Later that night I put on a brand new battery and it fired up fine and two weeks later which is now, same thing happened and this time even if I jump start it, it just dies with in 2 minutes or less(the car was running fine earlier in the day):shrug::shrug:

    I notice my ABS light turns on and the lights the light up the guage cluster/guages get low and then it shuts off, I tried to keep drivin and the car would hesitate and cutts off???

    WHAT CAN IT BE:bash:

    Could it be ur alternator going bad, because you said that you got a new battery and it work for a short while.

    Classic alternator failure. ABS light comes on then 60 seconds later the car shuts off.
