Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

Dead battery replace, died again 3 days later

I had a battery less than a year old, took it to auto zone. They said battery bad. Replaced it and 3 days later battery dead again. When checking the original, voltage was over 12volts, almost 15. Looks to me like voltage regualtor or alternator. But could that be causing the battery to die. How much do you think it would cost to replace? This is for 2000 Infiniti I30, which was not listed in the products below

    My battery keeps going dead. No dash lights indicate a problem although my tac does not work. I realize that the battery is not being charged but once I charge the battery everything is fine for about 30 miles.

    If the car is left for more than 2 days, the battery dies. Does the i30 have a particularly high current when it sits in the driveway?

12 volt is actually a misnomer of sorts... it's actually closer to 13.8 volts i believe. if the voltage regulator is not working right you could very well be frying the battery. replacing it is the cost of the alternator + labour (unless you do it yourself).

this is called a parasitic drain. It could be a trunk or glovebox light that isnt turning off.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

96 infiniti g20 ABS light came on and car died


Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units If you needed a bigger battery then the autozone salesperson should have sold you the correct battery first time round.( try getting a refund on the first battery) Jump starting an efi vehicle incorrectly will do serious damage to the control module requiring a new ecu unit. Check what is staying on when you switch off including interior lights/ boot light

I have a 96 infiniti g20 and the battery keep going dead.. I had it checked and the alternator. Only the battery was bad. So i bought a new and thought things were fine then not long after (few days later)...


Auto Zone is great for general parts but NOT for diagnosis problems. Did anybody check the CHARGING SYSTEM & CHECK FOR ELECTRICAL SHORTS? They will just change general parts. Have it ckd out properly & you'll see what I'm referring to.

I have a 1991 Cheverlot S-10 pickup that starts up fine, and dies while driving a little while and most specifically when the lights are turned off. Then you have to wait a couple of hours and it will...


have you checked the altenator? is the belt on the altenator? most places like auto zone will check it for free. advance auto also checks them free. sounds like after it dies and you park it for 8 hours the battery picks up enough to start it and run it for what?30mins top? with lights on 15mins or less? you're altenator most likely bad or belts loose or gone. hope this helps!!

91 Accord LX 2 dr 4 cyl just put new battery with 5oo cold cranking amps-NO Start! Owner said car has had perpetual problems holding a charge and starting! About 3mo ago Owner charged the old Die hard...


If you manage to get it started, check the alternator output...I'm betting it is bad. Should be making no less than 12.5 with accessories all on, 13.5 to 14 with just engine running. Bad alt can drain battery even when off depending what failed inside it. Towing with a chain is not really a good idea. the cross pin in those differentials are not very good and can fail.
