Hey guys so i got a new battery and a new starter for my girlfriends car , so it went from a no crank , no start to a crank and a sputter and it wont even turn on now . But how ever yesterday when i put the new starter in it turned on fine and i was able to drive it home . And all of a sudden today it doesnt want to turn over at all it just cranks and sputters

Check your battery with a multimeter and pull fuses until you find the circuit that’s drawing power. Do you have any aftermarket electrical accessories installed? Sub, HIDS, etc.

A bad ground connection could be the culprit as well. The starter motor could be drawing all of the current. A bad ground could also prevent the alternator from charging the battery.

Check it with odb2. It possible the fuel pump. Too find out spray starting fluid into intake while starting. If it not it.,then check coils pack and controller. Bad crank position sensor.
