      I'd follow the voltage feed from battery B+, use a test lite, follow the voltage. Check for voltage at fuse boxes, some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on, Check both ways. You may need to check voltage to and from ignition switch?

      Can you check for applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

      The car won't turn on, so I cannot check any codes.

      Follow the voltage feed with test lite. Unless you can do a little testing, I'm not sure how to help?

    If the alternator goes out, will the car stop running?
    Car stopped suddenly and would not start again. Starter turns over but no spark to coil.

      The charging system shouldn't kill the vehicle as long as the battery has a certain amount of voltage. Most batteries has a reserve spec on the battery, It is listed in minutes, the battery will run the vehicle as long as the voltage use doesn't go over certain amount in a certain amount of time.

      Is there anything else missing besides spark, how about a fuel injector pulse? If you missing both I usually want to check for cam and crank sensor signal, where applicable. Check for applicable trouble codes?

      This vehicle has a similar problem to this post

      Note: try to replace the fuel filter ( if it isn't replace yet ).
      Spray an adequate starting fluid in the throttle body and see if the engine starts on the first crank.In the event, it starts, check the fuel pressure system ( 47-51 psi ).

    My a/c is not blowing cold air. How do I diagnosis the problem?
    It blows warm to hot air.

      A slow leak in the a/c system could be caused by several possibilities; faulty o-ring or seal, faulty / leaking hose connection - to name a few sources. One simple test - costs nothing - is to observe the a/c hoses and fittings for telltate oil leaks. Usually, an oil leak will attract dirt - so look for accumulations around the connection points of the system.
      To have the leak diagnosed will require the a/c system to be fully recharged and pressurized. Any competent repair shop using standard leak detection methods; bubble solutions (like soapy water), UV leak detection dye, halide torches, and electronic sniffers (corona-supression and heated diode types) should be able to pinpoint the a/c system leak.

      Use the mechanics stethoscope to detect an exactly location of the noise and do the repair.
