Car died on me at a gas station. Drove fine. Stopped for gas, cut the car on and it would not turn over. Not getting a clicking noise or anything. Car eventually died. Got a new alternator, a new starter, battery fully charged, 2 sensors changed in the engine and my car still will not start. What is the problem?

Hello, 

Thank you for writing in. There are several components that could be causing your no-start issue. If the vehicle is not cranking over, then the starter motor that you just replaced may not be getting power. This could be an electrical issue stemming from the battery or the ignition where you turn your key. Further electrical testing will need to be done. Start by checking the battery cables, even if they look clean and tight, and work your way through testing the ignition switch. Good luck!
