    If you replaced the battery (with a new one) it is unlikely that your battery is bad. Thus it is pointing to your charging system. Check all the connections at the alternator. Ensure they are solid, not worn and not loose. Also, check the ground connections at the alternator. Clean or replace (depending on severity) any corroded connections. Same for connections to battery. Also, ensure the battery connections are tight. If all this pans out ok, get your charging system checked at a service station.

92 Saab keeps dying, won't hold charge....


You have the battery and the alternator and the alternator belt and if they are working fine there must be something that is draining the battery. You need an auto electrician to check what the drain is. In such cases,on various vehicles, the BCM, body control module, proves to have something to do with it. Get A GOOD AUTO ELECTRICIAN to check if there is a particular component

2004 buick rendezvous loses power after jump starting, while engine idlies battery power dies. Unable to restart again unless I jump start. Also, battery light comes on. Battery was replaced 5/28/13.


Sounds like the alternator. A jump can start you but if the alternator is bad your battery will not charge and just die after you use the power you got from the jump.

Xterra won't start when the battery has juice free of corrosion and starter is freshly installed


Check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminals. Loosen, twist and retighten them. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the black earth cable where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork. A bad earth can cause the symptoms you describe.

A quick check you can do is to connect a jump cable to the battery negative terminal - the earth - and connect the other end of the cable to somewhere suitable on the engine/bodywork.

If the car starts no problem with the jumper cable - it's pointing towards a bad earth/connection somewhere on the battery earth

I have a 2003 Eddie Bauer edition of the Explorer. It ran fine until the battery dies from the back hatch being left open. We replaced the battery and it ran fine for a while again then the battery died....


Sounds like the alternator is shot. The alternator charges the battery when you re driving and also gives power to the engine and accessories. If this dies the car will run on battery power until it dies.

99 pathfinder trouble running


There could be several concerns.
The fuel pump is weak and cutting out.
The ignition coils are getting hot and cutting off. The torque convetor in the transmission could be staying in lock up mode, This will cause the vehicle to die out , there is to much torque on the engine when at idle, causing the engine to die out.
The exhaust system could be clogged.
I would try and get the vehicle to a mechanic or dealer to check out .
