1996 lexus es300 not holding charge


Make sure the battery is good. U can charge it and disconnect it from car overnight and see if it works the next day. If it is still fine then the car has a drain. If no good, then the battery is bogus and cannot hold a charge.

U have something in wiring that is draining the battery after shutdown. Need an ammeter. Hook it up to the battery and wait about a half hour. Then notice draw on meter. Start removing fuses until you locate the line that is responsible for the draw. Then check out each and every item on that trunk line.

1997 Toyota4runner, battery won't hold charge


Is the battery not holding a charge or is it being drained by something staying on? If not holding a charge then replace.....if something draining the battery look at interior lights or trunk/boot light!

My battery has not been holding the charge. Is there a way of determining if its the battery or the electrical system?


Fully charge the battery, then disconnect it from the car by removing the negative battery terminal. Wait about 24 hours (or however long you state the battery won't hold a charge), then reconnect the negative terminal and try and start the car. If the battery did not drain while it was disconnectesd, then your car is draining the battery while it sits.

Hello! I have a s500 2001Benz and our battery keep dying overnight why is this..


You have an excessive power drain from some electric component in the car and it is draining the battery power rapidly. That is, assuming you have a sound battery that is holding its charge.

You need to have some tests run to identify the source of the drain and rectify it. You will need to either have Mercedes do this or a competent auto electrician who is familiar with Mercedes systems.

The battery will not last very long if it is being constantly discharged like this due to the excessive power drain.

Furthermore, if the battery is old and on the way out it will not hold its charge for very long even if there is no excessive power drain. When the car is idle and everything is in working order, there are still systems on the car that drain a small amount of power constantly so you still need a sound well charged battery.

Battery wont stay charged


If the alternator is good and the battery is new, then something is draining the battery while it's parked. In the old days people left their headlights, radio or something on and this drained the battery. Now a days this is not as big a problem with 5 minute timers that turn off lights if you forget. I would take it back to whomever did the alternator work for an answer. How old is the battery? You can take it to see if it can't hold a charge any longer. In my experience, most batteries don't seem to hold a charge after about two years. Did anyone do some custom work in your car that requires electricity? It could be this extra stuff is draining the battery.

1994 Chevy corsica won't hold a charge changed alternator still won't hold charge


How old is the battery? Did you check wiring circuits for alternator? Do your dash gages show it charging while driving? If it drains over-night with key off, have to check amp draw, everything off.
