When the car died all the lights dimmed.I originally thought it might be a bad alternator but with normal battery voltage the car wont turn over, just cranks.

Hi there,

"Turns over" and "cranks" is the same thing.

Your engine is cranking over, not firing.

Sounds like broken/stripped timing belt.

Have you checked this?
