99 Plymouth breeze. Starter and battery 2 months old. Wont start. No power at all. No headlights either. Please help.


Make sure battery terminals are tight and not corroded. If still not take battery back and get it tested, could have a dead cell.

Hello i have a 2004 expedition , and i have been having issues with my battery draining. about a month and a half ago i went away vacation , came home to start my truck only to relize my battery was dead....


Your solution is a little hard to find too bad they told you to change the alternator. It is a simple fuse you need to change that is blown. on the expetion sometimes there are two one in the fuse box and one under a black cover follow the alternator small wires it should point to the direction of the small i believe 7.5 amp fuse. it was hard to find and i do this for a living. good searching.

Electrical Short???


Has the stereo been changed recently? If not move to the cigerett lighter. These two are most likely the prob. But you could have a bare wire anywhere grounding out. Good luck and hope you find it.

89 F150 starting problem


If you see the battery voltage dropping by 50% periodically then you have a serious short somewhere.
The first thing to do is be certain no lights are on then disconnect the battery ground.

If you don't have an amp meter then then disconnect the ground wire from the battery and connect a 12 volt test light from the cable to the battery post[If it does not light then reverse the leads from the test light because some are polarity sensitive].

If the bulb lights and you are sure nothing is on, the key is off and the doors are closed; then pull all the fuses and hook-up the test light.If the light still comes on you will probably need to seek some professional help.

If the light does not come on, then plug the fuses in one by one until you see the test light come on.
Unplug the last fuse, if the light goes out then that is the circuit where the short is located.
