    When disconnecting batteries on these late model domestics, I have heard the alarm (horn) do similar things when it is turning on or sensing a voltage spike as the battery's being connected or disconnected. I'm betting your Ford has or had a keyless entry system. These were not some magical warning that your new battery was about to fail. It was actually a sign of the loose connection at one or both posts/terminal. If all else was ok, why would your new battery just poop out; because it didn't have a an adequate, secure connection on at least one pole. Take hold of each battery cable and try to wiggle or move it. This should have already been found to be your problem, yes? Hope you get it right. Thanks for your submission. TT

Get the battery situated, and your beeps should go away. Sounds like an errant security horn from a sloppy connection. Interested to see what happens. TT

My battery is going down over night and i bought a new battery and it still goes down over night.


Have your alternator checked, it may charge some but not enough to keep your battery charged. If it has an internal short (blown diode)it can discharge your battery.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Car will not start.


that indicates a dead battery. Your alternator may have failed. Check the battery reserve power, and if it is under 8VDC the car will not have enough power to crank the starter. A healthy battery will be around 10-12VDC when the car is off.... and 13-14VDC while running.

2003 Impala - mystery problem???


you have something thats staying on with power when you shut the car off,first check all lights glove apartment,underhood,in trunk ,just because ther closed doesnt mean the light is off,check your car at night it might help to see the lights,if not another way is to take a multi meter to the battery and while some holds the meter pull out fuses in your fus box one at a time to see when the meter makes a change,this will help you to narrow down whats staying on and draining the power from the battery,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
