The alternator is out. The ONLY time your vehicle uses battery power (while the engine is turning) is during start up. After that the alternator runs the car.

With the car running put a volt meter on the alternator. Red lead on the big nut on back side if alt. Black lead on the neg batt cable or a good body ground. Voltage should be around 14.5v DC.
Then still with engine running, red lead to batt postive, black lead to batt neg. Voltage should read the same. 14.5v DC
If not, the alt. Is bad

SOURCE: need to charge battery on my chevy venture.

Okay... One can not see the negative battery terminal so.... Connect the negative clip from your charger to the chassis and then remove the RED plastic cover in front of the black relay box above the battery OR the plastic cover from the positive battery terminal and connect the positive cable. Make sure you have good connections by watching the meter on your charger. Then plug in the charger and turn it on. Charge time depends on the strength of your charger. I'm going to go hook mine up again because I need to go out for a bit. I don't think I'm going to like changing this battery..... Just thought I'd share..... Good luck.

Sounds like an altinator problem. Have it checked out. If your altinator is bad it will not recharge your battery while its running and cause your car to lose all electrical power. When this happens, your car will not usually run for more than 10minutes or so.

SOURCE: electrical system is draining the battery

It could be the alternator or possibly a short somewhere. Make sure that there arent any lites staying on under the good or somewhere that could be draining your battery. When ya sit and idle..turn the wheel sharply to the left then the right..if it dies then a cable may intruding on your wiring.

How do you tell if it needs charged or not?


Hi Kelly, A fully charged battery is 12.4 to 12.6. and when the motors running it's 14.3 to 14.6... Three reasons your battery is flat (isn't charging), You have a faulty battery, A power drain or you have a faulty alternator... Clean your battery terminals and If you don't have a multimeter then Try jump starting your flat battery and driving your car for at least ten minutes then turned the motor off and try starting it WITHOUT jump start, If the battery's still flat then it's the battery, If your car starts straight away but won't start the next day then you have a power drain... If you jump start your flat battery and go for a ten minute drive but during that drive the motor dies without turning off the key then it's the alternator....
A mechanic or an auto electrician can usually test Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

Drained battery


Clean the battery terminals and cable terminals. Hook battery back up. Try to start again (with or without jumping). If it starts , make sure the charging system is working. If you have a voltmeter (or gauge in car dash). You can drive to autozone, Oreillys or most auto parts and they will check the battery and charging system free of charge.

What are the manifestations of low battery for 2002 chevy venture


The red indicator means that the battery is below the minimum voltage required to start/operate the vehicle. Try removing both cables, then clean the cable ends and battery terminals with a wire brush. Check and refill the battery cells (distilled water) if it's not a sealed battery, then recharge it. If you don't have access to a charger, reconnect the cables, jump start the vehicle, and run it for about 20 minutes with all accessories OFF. If it does not take/hold the charge, it's time for a new battery. OR, if this is the original battery, you might want to skip the charge/jump start and just replace it. It's rare for an original battery to last more than 3 or 4 years.

Batterie dead


A 3 year old battery is on the cusp of being at the end of its life. You must first test battery strength ( voltage ) and then the alternator output for proper voltage.

The security light is on in my 2001 chevy venture message center


Hi there,
Most commonly with these cars the security system will do this if the battery is "drained" while trying to start the car. ie: a low battery that is too weak to turn the engine over. Usualy the power options & accesories will not work if this is happening.
To fix it you will need to ensure the battery is charged, you then disconnect the battery negative cable for about 1 minute with the key out of the ignition. reconnect the battery cable & start the car normally. Everything should be back to normal.
Let me know if there is anything more you need for this concern.
Farrout!
