Battery goes dead often. Must jump or charge almost everyday

I have changed my battery, alternator and sent out to electrical shop. No one can figure out problem. Two months ago this problem started. Jeep was dead, jumped it. Now, just this week, truck been dead since tuesday, went out today, truck started right up. When it goes dead, it is dead, no clicking, no nothing.

    I have checked that. My Jeep has been dead since tuesday. Went out today to put on charger, and the truck started right up.

    Any other suggestions? Something I can tell the mechanic to look for? Tired of this process of elimination. Already have spent small fortune.

Perhaps your problem is not so complicated. maybe one of your vanity mirror lights arent shutting off or something. go out in your car at night and look for light after your dome light shuts off.

c85a2fd9-af0e-4d08-89b4-66fb0b469e10.jpgThe motor home battery I couldn't teel you but if you're talking about the vattery for yhe charger, it's located in the Passenger side inside the trunk. There is a cover over it that has to be removed to get access to it. If jumping, there are posts next to the battery I believe designed just forr jumping. I would REALLY suggest just charging the motor home batteries or using a different vehicle to use. Have found on your kind of vehicle that sometimes when getting jumped or visa versa That it causes an electrical problem. there is a fuse link in the wiring directly (sort of) from the battery to the alternator. Have seen this fuse link blown a lot and MANY people change the alternator thinking the alt. is bad beause the battery goes dead not to mention the car letting you know thta there is a charging problem.Hope this helps.....

My 2012 hyundai sonata battery will drain dead after 2 days when I don't start it, what could be the problem? I have to jump start it and if I drive it everyday its fine.


it can be a number of problems one can be you have something is staying on it can be a light in the boot,you alarm is wired wrong or a radio is not off or it can be the battery no good. By jumping the car with a jumper leads can damage the battery, or you alternator is not charging good. First to check your alternator you will need a volt meter and place the negative from your meter to the negative of the batter and the positive to the positive and start your car. If the reading is 14.3 V to 14.8 V your alternator is good than the problem it can be any of the other things that I indicated

2004 dodge neon will not turn over


have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables

Brand new battery keeps running down. I'll jump it off, and two days later, battery is dead. Today, the A/C went out. Are these problems connected? What's running my battery down? Is It a belt issue?


It's probably your alternator. When your alternator isn't working properly your battery provides all or most of the car's electrical power. Until you can replace the alternator you can disconnect one of your battery cables while the car is not in use and that will prevent the battery running down. One way to check if your alternator is the problem is to disconnect the negative battery cable while the car is running. If the car goes dead, it is very likely an alternator problem. It usually requires about an hour of labor to replace an alternator. Most alternators can be rebuilt at an alternator repair shop and that is cheaper than buying a new or re-manufactured one.

My honda civic wont start at first i thought it was the alternator so i went and picked one up from pick yah part and got it changed and the new alternator is charging my battery but when i try to start...


the problem is either in the batterie or alternator. junkyard alternators are a 50/50 chance of working. you should go to your local parts store and have them do a batterie/ alternator test. they dont require you to take them out the car.

yes the alternator has failed or the wiring to it, this caused a low voltage condition that caused the engine to stop once it went below about 10 volts.
