Why won't my 2006;envoy battery stay charged. When I disconnect the positive battery cable it shuts off. I replaced battery and alternator numerous times. I even replaced the altenator plug but it still...

there is a power leakage in the electrical system
disconnect the earth cable from the battery and place an amp meter in the circuit ( terminal to lead end) and check for current reading. the amount of current flowing will give an indication of the drain and what is likely to be still on. ( glove box light,boot light,interior light,relays,fuel pump, faulty ECM radio amp or booster diode in alternator etc)

I just replaced the battery and alternator, but the battery light still stays on, what could it be?

When working correctly and charging, the alternator develops a voltage in the small wire at the back which, at the 'battery light' end, opposes the voltage supplied to the bulb from the battery. The bulb then goes out. This is not happening in your case, suggesting either a faulty alternator or a broken connection to the bulb. You need to use a multimeter with the negative probe earthed and the positive probe along the length of the small alternator wire to locate the break. If there is none, then I suspect you will find the alternator is not charging and therefore faulty.

Violet - for connection to negative switched courtesy light door switchs
Blue - ACC wire connect to an ignition switch positive supply
Yellow- connect one yellow wire to the left indicator and the other to the right inicator. Ensure that you connect to the switch output to the bulbs, not the supply to the switch.
White - Current sense loop- cut for current sense leave intact for non current sense.

How do I fix the heater switch on a rover 25 1.4i Y reg

** First check the Fuse 19, 20A, in passenger fuse box (see manual- under steering wheel). then earthing connection E5 (Front LH inner wing.
**electricat connections are most accessable at Motor resistor bank, behind glove box (released by 8mm 2 bolts underneath ) Resistor pack in front of blower motor, 2x 6mm bolts. flick or squeese electrical relaese tab**

** Check the state of the motor speed resistor pack/ prone to resistor/resistor wire failure , which is behind the glove box,

The motor circuit is Green, live feed , to motor, slate black to motor speed selector (resistor pack), Output (slate or Yellow or Green or pink And Black) then Heater selector switch to earth (black).
- The feed from the motor is Slate/ Black wire. It pass through (or bypasses) resistor bank which limits the current through) the motor thus controlling. the speed. This has 4 connection slate grey from motor.

**Check 12v feed on blower Motor connector Green +ve , Slate Black to Earth. if ok, short Slate/black(Sl/Blk) to earth motor should run.

-Slate/B black (S/B) via No restor to switch, pos 4,

-Yellow/ Black (Y/B) via High resistor to Switch Pos 3
--Green/ Black (G/B) via Medium resistor to Switch Pos 2.
--Pink/ Black (K/B) via Xresistor to Switch Pos x.

From heater selector all final connection to earth are via to Black wire to earth on ineer LH inner wing.

Brake light is on after changing pads and sencors

Check brake fluid level, if low top up & problem solved

If not, disconnect and reconnect the sensor wires ensuring a good connection. Check to see if solved.

If not, it seems that the sensors are perhaps receiving an earth signal somehow, check that the sensors are seated correctly.

Hopefully one of the above will sove the issue.
