Question about 2006 Hyundai Tucson
The battery died five times.
Trickle charged it overnight, no worries. Ran for another month or two each time, then died again. After the third time, took it to NTB to check and remove & replace the battery (it looks new), they said it's new, great and would not change it out.
Been keeping an eye open for leaving lights on, radio, door ajar and what not..died again. Recharged, all good. The fourth time it sat for a couple weeks in the garage, dead.
Today, I checked it in the morning, cranked right up. Ran it for a couple minutes. Then I get the call (while I'm at work), car won't start--need to pick up the young'un at school. So, from about 0700 to 1500, it drained down enough not to crank. When I got home, I tried it. Just kind of made some clicking sounds. It either dies totally, or has enough juice just to light some lights and make a clatter to start. Only thing I can thing is something might be loose since it is so random. I pulled all the fuses in the compartment and they look good, had a good seating. Any ideas what might be the problem, or how to t-shoot such an intermittent problem? (Battery still takes a good charge overnight, charging right now)...
It is the Alternator. The Battery will Charge But drains while Driving. The Alternator is not Recharging the Battery while the Motor is Running.
