SOURCE: 1999 bmw 528i replaced battery and alternator

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.

Sounds like something is shorting out but first I would not trust that the battery is good . So try unhooking the battery after its been charged and then hooking it up the next morning to see if it will start your truck and if it works the battery is good and need to find the short but if it is drained and dont start truck its a bad battery.

SOURCE: 99 passat 2.8, vehicle was driven the night

That code is a Throttle Position Malfunction code.

This means one of two things:
1. The throttle body needs replaced
2. After the dead battery, you need to adapt the the throttle body.

The cheap way to do this is to leave the driver's door open, turn the key to the on position, but do not start the car. You will hear the throttle body self-adjust. This may take up to 2 minutes. That should get it close enough. To get it perfect requires a trip to the dealership.

If it does not help, the throttle body might be dead.

Disconnect battery ground for 30 seconds & reconnect. Light should be out unless you have deeper diagnostic problem. Charging system good Battery good. This action should reset trouble light. Good luck!

My 2007 honda pilot had a sudden and complete shut down while driving about 10mph and will not start again and no power at all, the gear will not move at all


So why are you here?

You have tried to charge the battery & maybe there
are other tests that could be done,but the battery
would appear to be done

You always start any testing for a problem with a good
battery capable of taking & holding a charge & at least
12.6 volts static

Car security system


If the red light that stopped blinking is on your dash board, then your car battery is most likely dead. All the problems you mentioned above happen when the battery is bad or dead. Auto Zone will test the battery free of charge to see if it's still good or time to get a new one. They will also re-charge the battery if it is good. Check to see if your battery posts & the connection terminals to it are clean & tight. If there not..... then your car's charging system can't re-charge it. Also have Auto Zone check to see if it's the RIGHT battery for your car, & have them test your alternator. There all free services Auto Zone does.

My 2004 Honda Pilot ran fine then a hour later won't start. At first thought battery so we charged up usig one of those chargers you plug in. Lights flicker, and clicking sounds but won't turn


Check batry terminals are secure & free from corosion, check security of earth strap to engine & main power wire on starter, if ok have the batry load tested to ensure it can perform under load as the starter needs a lot of current. Have you tried a jump start?

Battery drains while car is not driven


Try charging the battery out of the vehicle. If it holds a charge, you have an open circuit somewhere. Check your light switch first. Make sure the interior lights are off.

My 98 lumina has a constant power draw from somewhere. I just replace the battery and had the alt tested (it was good). I have to jump the dang thing every morning but if I drive it enough during the day...


The alternator may charge fine but could drain the battery through a bad diode,have you checked the alt for a bad diode?Disconnect the battery positive cable.Put a regular 12v test light between the battery positive post and the positive battery cable.If the test light is bright you do have a drain,if dim it is OK.A dim light may mean the drain is internal in the battery.If you do have a bright light remove a fuse ,one at a time from the fuse box until the light goes dim.Once dim you have identified the bad circuit.If removing all fuses do not dim the light,disconnect the alt charging wire at the alt,if that dims the light,then you do have a bad diode.DO NOT create a drain(bright light) when checking for the drain by turning on the key or opening a door/trunk etc.
Also,do an overnight battery check by disconnecting the battery overnight,if things are fine the next morning after the battery was disconnected then it is a drain in the vehicle,if the battery is dead even after being disconnected overnight,,then the battery is bad.

Nissan Wont hold a charge


Hi. this is defiantly a slow or major drain that is occurring within this vehicle. Here is a test that you can preform that will help you find this battery drain so you can illuminate this issue.



--BATTERY DRAINAGE TEST PROCEDURE--


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.


Please rate and god bless:)
