Not Starting...Died While Driving
Sorry, for the long story, but background is important...
Ok, so I started my car like normal and put on the heater full-blast. I noticed that the fan was not blowing very fast and I drive for maybe 5 minutes and I notice that my Mach 460 woofers sounded terrible (but not my 10" sub in the trunk it was still thumping), so bad that I turned off the radio. Then not 2 minutes later I notice my car's "ABS" light come on and start to try and die, so I turn left onto a road to head back then she died (luckily I put her in neutral before to gain a little distance.) A man helped push me the rest of the way off of the road. He used a wrench to cross the battery and said my battery was bad because it should of discharged harder (I don't think there's anything wrong with the battery.) I disconnected the fuse from my amp and let her set a little bit then started to start her and she was struggling, but after pumping the gas she started up strong and ran fine until I made it to school and she tried to die again and I pumped the gas to keep her from dying and she just kept barely putting along until I let off the gas and parked. Now, shes not even trying to start and while most accessories work, the subs on the Mach 460 system still don't work while the tweeters and head unit still do.
I have been having the battery light flicker when the car is under load recently,and yesterday I noticed it stay on under not-so-heavy load. I've been procrastinating replacing the alternator for about 2-3 months. Only thing I can think of is:
1. Bad Alternator (after tonight, I'm straying from this)
2. Bad ground somewhere (but everything else does fine like headlights, stereo, tweeters, blinkers, lock remote)
3. My theft system is armed (maybe the alternator got so bad the car thought it was getting stolen, I don't know)
Please help with any suggestions/ possible answers. Thanks
