It is most likely the voltage regulator sticking after the car has been cut off.Have your alternator checked or replace the voltage regulator.If it drains over night it is the voltage regulator.

Is the glove compartment door shutting fully? It may give the appearance of being shut but being slightly open switches on a light inside it. This has happened to me before and it did drain my battery flat. A similar thing can happen in the boot.

My Buick Rendezvous's battery keeps dying. Charged it, died again. The battery light keeps turning on then it dies. I don't know what to do, I really need this car. I dont know if its the alternator.


The Battery Light coming on usually indicates the charging system is not working. If you can limp it down to your local Auto Parts Store they will usually check your battery and charging system for free.
Yes a fuse can cause charging system to malfunction - also there will be a Major Fuse/Fusable Link. If you have your owners manual there will be a section showing fuse locations and description.
Let me know if and how this helps you
thanks

My battery keeps dieing i dont know why


You may have a key off drain. That is where a component, light etc.., stays on or there is a short to ground in the electrical system that drains the battery as it sits. To test this after driving the car disconnect the batterys negative cable, breaks the circuit not allowing a drain, and reconnect it right before driving it again. If it starts right up chances are you do have a drain. If you still have problems then the fault probably lies in the starting/chrging system, battery, starter, or alternator. In any case you should have your car looked at by a shop that does auto electrical work or a versed mechanic that can test the starting/charging system.

91 Ford Tempo gls manual transmission battery keeps draining the machanics say its not the alternator has replaced battery 2x have a radio/cd player in it. I take the face off and a light keeps flashing...


you need a draw test done on the car to start to diagnois the problem.it can take a few days to find the problem and should be done by a tech that knows how to check for electrical draws as its not an easy job to do and if you don`t know how to do this you may not find the problem or may jump to the wrong conclusion.

My car batterey cannot hold a charge when it gets jumped all of the lights on the dash pop on uternater. is good the batt.it self is good when this was checked out they keep asking if something is running....


Yes if you leave a glove box open, a door open, or your car alarm going off could defiantly drain your battery. On the other hand if it is dieing while running then the problem is your alternator its what keeps your battery charged while your car is running it may test fine but could still be weak. Or it may be that your not letting your car run long enough for it to charge up if you need a jump start then when your car is running don't shut it off for a good 20 minutes because short trips are hard on batteries.

1987 200SX V6 I keep replacing the battery every


if its every year, a couple of things to consider are, climate in which you live( extreme colds can "snap" batteries), quality of battery(rebuilt batteries dont tend to have a long shelf life, or low quality, i know we are all on budgets.). always get the right one for the car. analyze when you are having to replace the battery(obviously right now is getting cold, midwest and back east). get the right one and it will come with a warranty if this continues. take a volt meter and see how many volts the alternator is putting out. you dont want any more than about 14.5v. after that you tend to start cooking the battery.
