We just replaced battery and cleaned any corrosion on connections and the battery light has came back on less than 24 hrs. Later. Any suggestions?

Was the battery fully charged Casey? Have you used the vehicle since and long enough journeys to charge the battery past what was used to start the vehicle?

Battery light also indicates that the alternator may not be charging the battery.

My dodge avenger dies out, battery light on and engine eventually dies, have to keep charging battery

Take the battery for a capacity check. At the same time let them check the charging rate off the vehicle. Either the battery is totally unserviceable or the vehicle is not charging it properly.

2003 Ford Expedition not charging

Probe it from the alternator all the way to the battery. Find the voltage drop or open circuit.

Battery will not charge

  1. Sounds like an alternator associated primary fault (not charging) or wiring short circuit.
  2. Battery should have been disconnected for independent charging otherwise damage will occur.
  3. Smell indicates short-circuit or overheating and damage.
  4. Secondary problem likely in starting circuit as well if point 2 not followed.
  5. Fully qualified local Auto Electrician is recommended because of symptoms and high probability of fire risk.

No light can come up including ignation key

check vehicle battery connections for obvious corrosion. If none is present, use another vehicle and battery jumper cables-properly hooked up, and with 2nd vehicle idling, try cranking Toyota. If not immediately starting, give it a few minutes to charge toyota battery, and then try again. A fully drained battery will require several minutes charge from second vehicles charging system to sufficiently charge drained battery.

I have a Cadillac deville 1998 v8 northstar. I had my alternator rebuilt and got a new battery. Vehicle started once but dash read battery not charging. Took vehicle to O'Riellys Battery tested bad. H

When you replaced battery you activated the system. Need to read owner manual and see if it tells how to deactivate it. You may need to contact dealer to deactivate it.

Alternator was replaced now battery needs charging but only gives one hour of working

If the vehicle is not even running or begins to die after as you say an hour that means you still have a charging problem. basically the only reason the battery is there is to start the vehicle. The alternator/charging system is what runs the electrical system in the vehicle. In the power distribution box (a fancy name for a fuse box) under the hood of the vehicle there is a fuse for your charging system. Below is a picture of the layout of the fuses in the panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. I marked the fuse you need to check. It's a 15 amp fuse and will cause the same thing as if the alternator was bad. I hope this helps.

Two new alternators on and the car still will not charge and it kills alternator. Need to know what to look for in the wiring harness. Auto Zone tested alternators before installation. Still won't...

Go to web site WWW.HMASERVICE.COM and register your vehicle by VIN #. You'll then have access to shop manuals, wiring diagrams, technical service bulletins, illustrations, etc.
Provided there is no problem with the vehicle's wiring, find out what the charging current is to the battery. I've seen batteries which TEST good, but when under a CHARGE short out internally.
Example: Tested a battery & charging system on a Hyundai Elantra, the battery tested "Healthy" but indicated there was a CHARGING SYSTEM PROBLEM. I checked the battery voltage while the engine was running and found the battery voltage at 14.3 VDC (which was normal). I then used a Digital DC Clamp meter arount the positive (+) battery cable & found the battery was charging at 70 Amps!.. it was supposidly already fully charged (should have only been taking 4 to 6 amps when fully charged).

Best guess without looking/diagnosing the vehicle myself

Maybe this will help.

JaBLussier@Hanover .comWhere do jumper cables go for charging a battery on a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville?

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
OK the best way to do this so you dont mess up the electronics in the vehical are as follows
First connect the 2 cables to the vehicle's battery red on positive and black on negative..
Now on the other vehicle the one needing charging. place the red cable on the positive battery post and take the black (negative) cable and place it on the negative battery post
now make sure the key is turned off in the vehicle that needs charging
now start the other vehicle first and leave run for about 30- 45 seconds then attempt to start the vehicle that is needing a charge once it has started quickly remove the cables off of the vehicles and you are good to go simply leave the car running to let the battery charge for at least 10 min ok
Hope this is very helpful for you please do me a favor and give this solution a rating this rating helps our asker's get the best possible solutions
Best regards Michael

well Marie the reason your vehicle is acting this way is because even though you put new battery in you still have to have a viable altenator to run the vehicle. the battery is only used to start the vehicle and run the radio and lights and other accessories. while the vehicle is running the altenator is not only suppose to charge the battery but it is suppose to supply the amprage to energize and coolapse the coil to give the vehicle spark. a bad altenator while driving doesn't charge the battery it drains it . a quick check is to have the vehicle running and then remove the positive battery cable if it dies you know it's the altenator.... please rate this and good luck keep me posted
