Check to make sure you bought the right battery as if you but one with the wrong amps and wattage it will die quickly if it is insufficient for the engine.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?


put kill where? at battery post, and is just a switch,
not those dynamic battery drop relays?
if the battery goes dead with the neg. lug pulled the battery is bad.
end of life , battery.
the lug pull never lies.... ever.
if stays ok now this is called battery phantom drain.
(or aka. dark currents)

finding cause takes an ammeter. any,
here is all ways to find a drain.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?


Hello Jr, The fact that the battery goes dead even with a kill switch would lead me to think the new battery is defective.

My brand new battery is dead every morning. but a I can hear the alternator turn on. THere is a wire coming off the Hot terminal of the battery that is pulling a lot of juice. Im looking for a diagram


Large wire is possible hot wire to altenator. Should have B+ voltage at all times. Need to do an amperage draw test and start eliminating sub systems to determine root cause. Also would like to point out a new battery does not mean defective free. would load test to ensure no dead cells first.

Battery problems


Well, something is on if the battery is dead. Pull the interior light fuse, and the clock fuse, disconnect the negative battery cable and put a 12 volt test light between the battery terminal and the cable...Likely it will light. Then pull fuses one at a time and observe if the light goes out. Keep disconnecting until you get the light to go out. Do not rule out the new alternator, stuff happens.

The battery on my 2000 Porsche Boxster is dead and the car is locked. How do I access the interior to release the hood?


The easiest way is to buy a cheap battery charger, one that plugs into your cigarette lighter socket. Allow the battery to charge for a few hours and then release the trunk when it has come up enough. The most likely reason for your battery going down is a faulty alternator. I just went through this problem with a friend. He bought a new battery and it went flat over night. He replaced the ignition switch (common problem), still went flat over night. Even though the alternator was charging great when the car was running, it was drawing current when the car was parked. We ended up getting a brand new alternator off ebay for $135., the dealer wanted $1900., local parts stores about $500.
The alternator was pretty easy to install and it solved the problem.

Brand new battery. If I do not drive it for one day the car goes completely dead. No power what so ever. No lights, will not turn over... no anything. Is it the alternator as the voltage regulator is...


If it was an alternator related problem the car would die while it was running. it could still be a bad battery. i have gotten a few new batteries that were bad.

try this:
-drive the car for about 15 mins to make sure the battery has a good charge
-after you park it, then disconnect the (-) neg cable from the battery
-let the car sit over night with the battery disconnected
-the next day hook the (-) neg cable back up to the battery and try to start the car

if the battery is good, it will start normally
if its bad you'll get the -no start- problem

If the battery is good, you have a parasitic drain some where in you electrical system.

Sumthing keeps bringing my battery down.the altinator is good but my brand new battery is dead now.whats wrong


Most likely the diode from the alternator is leaks draining the battery2_bing.gif. If you believe your battery is good then recharge it to full level then do the followings: 1- Disconnect negative cable from the battery over night to see how weak it is in the next morning. If it is bad then it is the battery no other thing. 2- If it is good, take off wires from the alternator for a night, next day battery is still good then there is a problem with the alternator diode. Hope this can help.
