Question about 2005 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

Dash lights My dash battery light came on & has been on for several months. The battery went dead several times so I replaced it & now the dash light remains on. The battery seems to be doing fine but should I be concerned - can I easily reset the dash so it doesn't come on.

My 2005 kai will not start and all the lights are out on dash


It sounds like you just have a defective battery, new sealed batteries do this exact thing. I have had this happen on my personnel cars and trucks about 5 times over the years. Also make sure the battery cable are clean and free of corrosion.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

I hadn't realized that an internal light was on and it was just sitting there for over a day. I went to turn it on and nothing came on no lights ,no dash board, no click. tried boosting it still nothing....


old post.
ok, no head lights, that means the battery is dead.
head lights are hot all the time, (safety) if they are dead
diagnosing HL is simple to do.
voltmeter to battery, oops 10v. bad. charge it.

many times leaving lights on, kills the battery for ever.
camel and straw deal.

1: dead battery , not 12.6v.
2: fuses blown. (in engine bay fuse box)
3: battery lugs corroded real bad.

2004 Trailbazer would not start turned the key and the interior lights and dash lights went dead but head lights stayed on. I took it to a mechanic they replaced trhe battery no change. They tapped on the...


INTERMITTENT BATTERY DRAINS ARE HARD TO FIND. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES IN THE VEHICLE. MAKE SURE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT LITE IS GOING OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE COURTESY LITES ARE GOING OFF. DISABLE ANY UNDER THE HOOD LIGHTS. REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. USE A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, FASTEN ONE END TO A GOOD GROUND, { METAL PART OF THE MOTOR} . FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. IF NO LIGHT , NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON LOOK IN THE FUSE/RELAY BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULLOUT THE FUSES, LARGE & SMALL ONE AT A TIME, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK IN TRY THE NEXT FUSE. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT CAUSING THE DRAIN. IF IT NEVER GOES OUT, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. IF THAT MAKES THE LIGHT GO OUT, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT IS NEVER ON, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS ANOTHER DAY TO FIND THE DRAIN.

Battery goes dead after several days, have tried


Connect the meter, then pull fuses one at a time until the current draw goes away.

You have now isolated the circuit that is the culprit. Troubleshoot that circuit and you'll find what is causing the problem. I would suspect there is a light staying on somewhere (engine light) or possibly ABS pump (if truck has ABS brakes). Maybe dash lights are on all the time.

Let me know what you find, or if you need more help.

I have a 99 camry the went dead and i tried to jump it the horn blows good the head lights comes on but when i turn the key it says nothing the dash lights doesnt come on its like its not getting any power


There could be several reasons for your problem:
  1. Check your connections for tightness and corrosion. A corroded battery cable/post will diminish the current going to the dead battery.
  2. Check jumper connections
  3. Dead battery; the worse off the battery is, the more time it will take to charge the battery sufficiently enough to start the car; a completely dead battery with bad cells will never recharge sufficiently enough to hold a charge and start the car on a regular basis
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Your alternator is dead/dying. Nissan puts both of those lights on to tell you that the alternator isn't charging your battery.
