A possible alternator failure. It would have shown a battery charging warning light on the dash before failure if this is the case.
Restart with a donor battery and check dashboard for charge warning indicator. If illuminated, then replace alternator.

SOURCE: Battary light would not go off

Have the battery and the alternator tested under a heavy electrical load. Some of the cheap battery testers will not indicate a bad or weak cell. Also your alternator may not put out enough amperage to keep up with the electrical demands placed upon it. A good battery tester is a carbon pyle tester. Good luck.

SOURCE: the altanator will charge the battary but it dies

HI, what your are experiencing is a Battery drain issue.

There are one or more devices that are not shutting down during the downtime of the vehicle. this will cause the battery to drain overnight. You will need to isolate this drain and fix it asap if possible.

Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights. Now about the "miss" in the engine. We would suggest doing a cylinder leak down test, also check for a "flat" cam. If the problem still exists, scan the PCM (computer) for trouble codes.

MY BATTERY KEEPS DYING


Either you have a dead cell in the battery, or something draining the power in the van.
A mechanic would take the battery out and have it tested, then check each circuit in the van for a power drain.

My 2003 KiA sedona,acts like the battary wants to die and then suddenly it starts, has been doing this for 3 days.


1st: Battery needs to be checked (no weak or dead cells) then fully charged.
2nd: If battery is good and fully charged, the problem could be excessive amp draw from the starter, a starter draw test would determine if the starter is drawing too much battery power.

MY 2005 SILVERADO STOPED RUNING WHILE DRIVIN WONT START NOW. NOTHING IN THE TRUCK IS WORKING


Fried ignition switch will do that. It's in the steering column and controls all power to everything but if it cranks then it's at least mostly working. Check battery and if drained then possibly the alternator went out. The ECM can be shorted out by a bad sensor but usually act up for awhile before dying. Dead ECM you can still crank motor. Crankshaft sensor would kill engine if bad and no start but car would still crank.

With the engine running are you getting any voltage off the alternator? check with a multimeter. Check voltage at battery while running should be 13 volts or more.

1999 Chevy Venture Van - AC not cooling, recharged and it worked for a couple of days but quit again, we figure it was a leak. The fan switch also does not work on speed 1 but will work on other speeds. ...


,, check your output voltage at the back of the alternator or a easy way is strat the car and disconnect one of the battary termianls and see if the car is still running,, if not your alternator might be bad ,, local auto zones will check it for free if u take it out ,, but don't untill u have check other things,, fan switch has a resistor in the heater core box ,, one elment might be bad in it ,, make sure the alternator is charging the battary try what i said unplug it while the car is runnging the battary terminal one of them .. don;'t do this for to long , you can blow the diodes in the alternator ,, so jsut check and if it runs then shut it off ,, its not your alt if it keeps running after u disconnect the terminal
