Try to charge the battery it sounds like the battery went dead and you probably have a charging problem

    it could still be dead because the altenator is not charging it i would still try to charge it and then try to start if it runs and batery light is on you have a problem with the altenator

    just try to charge the battery first and see if it starts and if battery light comes on before you buy an altenator

Interior lights flickering or staying on


Have you recently done any work in the doors? It sounds like a short or connection issue with your door lock harness inside your door.

Battery's are draining on a 2008 gmc duramax


Check all the interior lights in the truck, look at the visors which are the single biggest cayuse of the battery drain, look at night. Also Have the batteries tested, a shorted cell will draw them down as well. Never overlook the obvious.

check fuse panel first for blown fuse,second check your daytime running lights come on without flickering. if problem persists- all these are affected by headlight switch- controls interior lighting and headlamps and daytime driving lights

Radio, clock and interior lights don't work. all fuses are good.


For all those who have a situation where the interior courtesy lamps and radio don't work in a ford contour: After dozens of uncomfortable minutes checking fuses under the hood and under the dash I realized the problem wasn't the fuzes but instead it was the courtesy lamp relay in my 2000 ford contour. A $6 part from O' Reilly's (R6026 or V09174) and voila! Interior lights are on and I can finally get that Disturbed disk out of the CD player. It was real fun contorting my body into positions not intended for any human to access the fuse panel under the dash (just above where your left leg would be when driving). Best of luck to all. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

My 2002 Honda Civic starts - but slowly and the lights flicker


Well it absolutely sounds like an alternator issue. But i noticed you said "in the rain" correct? See this is where it gets tricky for most folks. But ill tell ya how to resolve this, if you arent having problems now things are gonna be just fine. I mean if you got up the next morning and th ecar did normal, then evidentally an electrical component had some moisture in it but has dried out now,so if it was the alternator the problem would only worsen, and within a few days your battery would fail. So I think you will be just fine
