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.

Battery draining overnight


First, make double sure that there is nothing left on that would drain your battery. Secondly, if you have ANY doubts about the integrity of your battery (even if it tests out O.K. at your local parts store), replace it.. Myself, if my vehicle ever fails to start correctly , I get a new battery. In the long run, poor batteries are the most expensive batteries you can have. Batteries can also have an intermittent internal problem that cannot always be detected by testing. My opinion, in a nut shell is that you need to replace your battery.

My 2003 c5 zo6 corvettes battery is to low to start the car after 1 week


You may want to check the built in trio-diode in your alternator. This lets current flow one way when it is ok. When defective, current will flow both ways & this will run your battery down.Take a fluke meter & see if there is excess voltage draining when car is turned off. You can replace the trio-diode or the complete alternator. GOOD LUCK, ROBERT OLIVER

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.

I HAVE A 2001 VW BEETLE.EVERY MORNING I HAVE TO JUMP THE BATTERY OFF.I CHANGED STARTER,ALTERNATOR IS OK.EVERY MORNING IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND BEFORE JUMP IT OFF.


Have your battery load tested. It sounds like overnight it's slowly losing it's charge. Another possibility is something electrical is "on" or draining battery overnight.

Van will run and over nite it will not crank in the morning..it trys to turn over but doesnt


Does it start if you jump it? It sounds like the battery is going dead overnight. Check to make sure that there are no lights staying on (interior, trunk, glove box, etc.) that would drain the battery. If the battery is more than two or three years old, it may have a dead cell. It will take a charge and appear to be okay, but runs down very quickly. Most auto parts stores will be happy to check your charging system and battery at no cost.

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.

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.
