Hi again just got a new battery, battery light is still on car is starting, but now whats the problem


The BATTERY light indicates that your battery is not getting charged. There could be several reasons for this most probably your alternator, which generates the current to charge the battery when the engine is running. If the new battery is not getting charged, it will eventually drain not start your car. To confirm that the battery is not getting charged and that is the reason for the BATTERY light, put a volt meter across the battery while the engine is running. It should read around 13 volts indicating that current is flowing into the battery. If it reads 11 volts or less, that means the batter is being drained and not charged. Then have your alternator checked.G

did you test the battery to make sure it can hold a charge. If the alternator goes sometimes it takes the battery with it ( orthe battery can cause the alternator to go)

Battery light stays


You have a short circuit somewhere that is draining the battery and making the alternator work that much harder. If the battery and alternator check out, it is most likely a short circuit in the starter solenoid. Try that and see if it solves it.

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

I just put a new battery in my car and got the alternator checked but my battery is still getting drained, whats going on


Do you mean the battery is draining overnight, and needs jump started? On your Olds, if this is the case...the starter has to be draining the battery...most likely a short...is it the original starter? Changing the starter on your Olds is not a big deal...:) Nice Car, if your Cutlass has gauges...(including Volts/Battery) the signal should show...toward charge when driving...The starter short is hard to confirm.

Battery draining


Usually if the battery is draining that means there's a problem with the alternator.
