Try having your battery tested. it might just be getting weak or your alternator may not be charging right. your parts store can check both at the same time.

I checked the battery it said good 100% ,but in the morning I try starting my truck a it won't start, I jump start it, and turns on right a way, what can it be?


It is possible the battery has a dead cell. It will charge just fine but will drain overnight and require you to jump start to get going again

My battery is always drained after I stop driving the x5?


Is the battery and the battery connection in good conditions? Try to charge the battery overnight with a battery charger. If then it starts your engine, the battery may be ok.
I recently had an issue with my car that the connection to the battery was corroded that was not visible just by looking at the battery. The connection had to be cleaned and solved the issue.
If the battery and generator in your vehicle is ok, then it must be a short circuit in the car that drains the battery. Locating that may require shop visit.

What's your problem? EVERYTIME I SHUT MY TRUCK OFF, I HAVE TO GET IT JUMPED, COULD IT BE BATTERY ALTERNATOR OR SOMETHING ELSE? PLEASE HELP, I'M BROKE AND HAVE TO TAKE MY SON TO A FREE CLINIC...


right get a jump start then with engine running take a battery lead off ,say the negative one and if engine keeps running then you need a new battrery ,if it stops you need a new alternator ,now if it keeps running and battery going flat overnight try leaving the lead disconnected on the battery overnight in case a diode is playing up in the regulator on the alternator ,or a boot light or something similar is staying on.

My car need's a jump ever morning , when I come down it's dead but will stay started once it's jumped please help going crazyyyyyyyyyyyyy.


First have your battery load tested, and your alternator checked for proper charging amperage. If that is ok then you have what is called a parasitic drain that is draining your battery overnight. A parasitic drain test will need to be ran and repairs made.

Good luck. i hope this helps.

New battery going flatafter draining it by accident overnight. jump started it, drove home, but battery flat again after a day or two.


battery needs a deep charge from a battery charger.if you drain battery to low the alternator cannot supply enough charge to bring battery up to full charge.

My gran vitara has trouble starting in the morning, when it has been sat all night, then the rest of the day it is fine, does it need clean filters??or is the battery wearing out?or any other ideas you can...


You have a defective battery. Overnight, it leaks off power. In the morning when you start it by jump starting (or a push) and it runs, the alternator will charge it, making it good the rest of the day. Then again the power will be drained overnight due to the shorted battery components.

Battery drains overnight


First thing you need to do is make sure battery is fully charged & have it load tested. If that and the rest of your charging system checks out, then you'll have to test for a battery draw, when vehicles off.

Car won't start. Makes a sizziling or "zzzz" noise when key is turned on.


Had car checked again at dealership. They stated they checked the charging system and battery would not hold a charge. Found a bad cell in the battery. The alternator was working fine. Battery replaced. Car has been starting fine since battery replaced.

Flat battery


Sounds like your altenator. Take the vehicle in or just take in the alternator and have it checked for proper voltages. The alternator should be delivering 14.5 volts when running over 1200 rpm. If not then the vehicle will use up the battery power until flat. A tell tale sign is the front head lights brighten and dim with the revving of the motor. To continue running off the battery itself will eventually kill the battery.
