My 2003 Buick rendezvous battery light came on, my battery is only 10 months old so it kinda new. What else could be the problem? Because it starts up fine.


The "battery" light really isn't just about the battery. In fact, it often has nothing to do directly with the battery. The Battery light indicates that the charging circuit (alternator/regulator) is not supplying sufficient power to run the vehicle, and thus the additional power needed is being drawn from the battery. In normal conditions, the battery is only needed to start the vehicle. Then the alternator provides power to the car/truck and at the same time charges the battery back to full power. If the battery light is on, have the charging system checked. Often the alternator is going bad.

I got an issue that I'm stumped on. here is the


By shorting out the neg and pos terminals of the battery for 10 minutes you have flattened the battery and may have damaged a cell and plates in a cell. You should have got a massive spark and if you didn't then the battery is not all that good. Just because the battery is new does not mean that it is not faulty. That is why there is a warranty on the battery. You reset the cpu by the use of a code reader as the cpu needs to be reprogrammed to reset.. You keep saying like it is getting little or no power . Do a load test on the battery and you may find that it fails under load

I had exactly same thing on my boat recently...which has a car motor in it. And I also charged the battery and I also had a reading that said I had charge. HOwever, I tried another battery from a car and it suddenly worked. Don't know why, but it really was the battery. When I put the old one back in, it still wouldn't start. With a new battery it's fine. Ya just never know why sometimes!! Good luck!

I just got a brand new battery for my 96 mercury sable and the battery light is on and my radio wont work


usually if a battery light is on it is a sign that the alternator has went out, start it and take the negative battery cable off while its running, if it dies the alternator is bad.. as far as the radio, that has nothing to do with it, most likely a fuse blown.

We bought a brand new battery one month ago. A few days ago, the car wouldn't start. We jumped it and it started. Today it won't start. When the key is turned, the car makes no noise. No clicking, no...


Check and clean the terminals then boost the car to start it after it starts. Well it's running take off the positive terminal if the car stops running the alternator is no good and you have to replace it.

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Car died the other day, and now it wont start. Everything such as dash and radio seem to be working fine.


hi there the things to check are do you have a spark at the plugs?
do you have compression ?
are the cam shafts turning?
is the cam belt intact?
this are all needed to make the engine run it will turn over great but not start with this things not working infact if the last 3 are not there it will sound diffrent when you are turning it over with the key.

hope this helps Regards JR

Car won't start even after new battery purchase


Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.
