I was driving my DTS the other day and it just cut off while I was driving ,,So I got the battery tested and they said the battery was fried so I brought a new one and now the car still won't start ,,Iam thinking it might need a starter or alternator

This belongs in the proper post-2005 DTS forum - it has nothing to do with factory warranty or corporate discussions.

Moved to new "DTS".

An alternator will not keep it from starting.
Does the engine turn over at all after putting in the new battery ??

I would think the alt. would keep the engine running when driving but I dont think it is bad. Go to a parts store and have a scan done of the car most will do it for free. Mike
