You definately have a short draining the battery- Try pulling the fuse to interior light/radio memory then hook up a 12v test light between the unhooked positive + cable and battery post{ leave the fuse out when testing other fuses} - If it still lights start pulling fuses 1 at a time and if your lucky it should go out when you find the faulty circuit- Then you have to diagnose that circuit for a short... If it still stayes on with fuses pulled have the alternator checked for bad diodes...Hope this helps

The battery dies after sitting for a few hours ? Parasitic drain on the battery ! With the key off all fuse's shouldn't be hot ! Bad ignition switch . Find a wiring diagram at www.bbbind.com an check power at ignition switch . Look on you tube , a lot of videos on basic electrical trouble shooting .

Battery keeps going dead


Does it go dead after sitting for a few hours? Once started and driven for several miles will it restart if the engine is shutoff? If the battery goes dead only after sitting for a while with the engine off, you probably have a bulb or some accessory that is draining the battery.

Battery loosing charge in a few hours


you have a "dead short" in your primary electrical system it sounds like to me. I would clean all connections starting at the battery and the positive cable to the starter and put a tester on your harness to your ignition to see if there is a strong enough connection. Good luck!

That symbol means low voltage in the system, you have a dead or defective battery. These new sealed batteries can go out of the blue, starts fine and then a few minutes or hours later nothing, no crank no start. You can confirm the battery is the problem by honking the horn, it will dribble out a noise or not work at all if the battery is dead or nearly dead.

I have 850 volvo and keep getting imobilisor and alarm when i go to start it new battery it doesnt reset


Hi

Did you switch the new battery over directly after you removed the old one? If so try disconnecting the car battery for a few hours, then when you put it back on put the live "red" on first then the "negative" black second. this often resets the immobiliser.

Hope that helps.

p.s in some cases with other makes you have to leave the battery off over night as the immobiliser if factory fitted has a battery backup built in. this needs to run dead.

Regards
Dan

p.s.s also try lock and unlock with the key not the remote.

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.

Car Won't Start


If the car is dead, it should not make a sound, this is normal for dead things. Get a live one.
