Check condition of belt. If a "v" belt the back of the belt must be level with the top of the pulley otherwise the belt slips under load and it take power to drive an alternator while charging check belt tension and adjust if necessary. If a serpintine belt-multigroove make sure the belt is properly tensioned

SOURCE: battery discharge intermittently with brake light coming on too

Check all wiring connections to alternator and battery to insure all are good, if ok it will most likely need an alternator.

SOURCE: Think there is a battery drain somewhere

Their is possibly a short. I would first isolate the problem. Disconnect the CD player and radio. If you can disconnect it then remove the radio fuse.

Start and drive the car for 15 minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for a while. Then go out and start the car. Repeat this until you are sure that your problem is with the radio or wiring.

If The car fails to start and is having a repeat of the problem you have a parasidic draw on the battery from somewhere.

SOURCE: Car won't start even after new battery purchase

Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.

SOURCE: 2008 Toyota Avalon Battery Problem

I doubt this is a smart key problem, the key uses a chip and its own battery. Something in the car is causing a drain, a light is staying on possibly. Trunk light, glove box light, under hood light... maybe you have a portable GPS unit plugging into the auxilary port? Just a thought. This is not a common problem that has been reported by Avalon owners as of yet.

SOURCE: I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power

Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!

You need to check the alternator output. It sound as if the battery is discharging because there is not enough or no alternator output. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage at the battery when it is running. It should be 13.5V-14.75V ideally but, at least 1.5V higher than a fully charged battery's standing voltage to charge. The battery light usually illuminates when the running voltage is low. I do not know what your 'stop' light is.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Car does not like to start after it's been driven. When turning the key it will just click 4 or 5 times and than turn over very slowly. We replaced the battery as it was only at 6 volts when under a...


Offhand I would say you have a problem with the charging system instead of the battery itself. Check the voltage at the battery terminals without the engine running (it doesn't matter if the key is on or off), you should be reading around 12 volts with a good battery, and again with the engine running. With the engine running you should read somewhere around 13 1/2 to 14 1/2 volts. If not, then you probably need to replace the alternator. The reason it worked with the new battery is that it was fully charged to begin with and it took about a week to run it down to where it would not run the starter again.

Battery wont stay charged, alternator problem?


I suggest that you take the car to an autoparts store and have them check the alternator output. That will tell whether the alternator is putting out sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged or not. Most parts stores will check the alternator for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

When we turn key car is dead. Car has been sitting for 2 months.


replace your battery, a battery discharges every day you dont run the alt. to charge it up... after a week or 2 weeks the battery would be dead, just from a car sitting not being started... if you are not using the vehicle, it is a good thing to replace the battery, and every couple days just start the car up and let it run a while to charge the battery.... if you are going to have to leave the car for a while without starting it, then disconnect the battery, and remove it from the vehicle... you can buy a cheap trickel charger for the battery when it is out that will keep it charged till you decide to put it back in.... hope this helps you...

Car won't start. Makes a sizziling or "zzzz" noise when key is turned on.


Had car checked again at dealership. They stated they checked the charging system and battery would not hold a charge. Found a bad cell in the battery. The alternator was working fine. Battery replaced. Car has been starting fine since battery replaced.
