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).

What keeps draining my battery?


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 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!!

Have a 2002 ion that sometimes wont start but if left for 10 mins will start up.


I have 2003 Saturn Ion. I had this problem over and over 2006 - 2008. IT IS THE IGNITION SWITCH. IT IS DEFECTIVE IN ALL ION'S.The replacement may be defective also, not sure. Mine was driving fine, went ino store for 1 hr came out stone cold dead, would not start and key **** in. Had to have towed to Saturn. They said it was battery and replaced battery.I said this did not make sense. 6 yr battery only 3 yr old , never weak start, never run down, in summer? It happened again 2 mo later. They tried to say battery , I said no. They checked battery. It was fine. Could not find problem. They did total electrical check. It happened again 1 mo later. drove into feed store. Went in came out it happened again. I got jump from someone 30 min later and started right up. 2 wks later same, I got jump 20 min later started. 1 mo late same. Sometimes it would just start up. Took to another Saturn place. They said Ignition switch, saturn was having big problem with this on Ions. Got changed and no problems for 1 yr. I was talking to repesentative at Saturn Headquarters. I told the problem. They said the ignition switch has an electrical component, or it is hooked to electrical component. THEY SAID IF I HAD JUST SAT THERE 20 MIN WITH KEY OFF, THE COMPUTER CHIP FOR IT WOULD HAVE RESET ITSELF WHEN IT COOLED DOWN AND I COULD HAVE STARTED IT EACH TIME. IT WAS BEST TO GET REPLACED AND NOT WORRY, BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU IN A STRESSFUL PINCH, UNTIL YOU CAN GET THE IGNITION SWITCH REPLACED. NOTE: Go to Auto Zone , O 'Reilleys, Pep Boys etc, get a repair manuel , CHILTON $ 23- $ 25 , for your year , make, model car. CHILTON IS MUCH BETTER THAN HAYES MANUEL. It is wonderful and many things you can do yourself.

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.
