Question about 1999 Suzuki Esteem
We have replaced the alternator, battery & battery cables but the car is srill shutting off. It seems to be an electrical problem. Someone said it was missing some fuses, could this be causing the problem? It sounds like it's out of gas, but it's not. The flashers & blinkers won't turn on & when you turn on the ignition it will not move out of Park.
Could be sensor gone wrong my nissan wouldn't move out of park untill i fixed a revese light bulb .safety feature

you have reversed the polarity through you eletrics not good your master fuse is an 80a and should not have a gap in it or look burnt.
replce the fuse but you may need to get your wiring and ecu checked for damage

SOURCE: CAR WONT IDLE, NOT ALTERNATOR
The computer loses it's memory when it is disconnected from the battery for any amount of time. Part of this is the engine idle. The fastest way to "cure" this (takes about 5 mins) is to start it up and give it enough gas to keep it running. Then let off the gas so that it ALMOST stalls and give it a little more gas to keep it running. Repeat about 5-10 times (you will notice it improving). You will need to do this with the AC on and with it off as the idle requirements are different. This worked great in my standard transmission. In the automatic, it's possible you may need to also do the same while it is in the various gears. It's a FAST fix though!

You've possibly destroyed the ECM (computer) and maybe damaged other components. Take it to a qualified person locally for diagnosis.

Try turning the key while rocking the steering wheel off the lock, sometimes the lock will bind up the ignition cylinder. If this doesn't work, try a different key
