what is going on?
was driving my mother in laws 90 bonneville sse to my dads to replace the tensioner etc. Anyways im almost there on the highway (doing 65) and i hear a clunking sound, so i pull over and pop the hood and see the belt completely shredded. anyways i go and get a few tools and put a new belt on and remove the belt cords that had wrapped themselves around the crank pully (i believe thats what its called, the big one at the bottom) and after all this the car will turn over but not start. Come to found out the battery is just about dead and we replace it free under warrenty, tow it back to her moms and the car still trys to turn over but wont start. Starter is brand new btw. Any ideas? i didnt think if the belt snapped that it could cause any damage? i pulled over immediatly so i know it didnt overheat etc.
