Question about 2006 Audi A3

1 Answer

Battery goes dead every 10-12 days

At first, my battery tended to be dead when it was in the 40-50 degree range in the morning. I've put the car on a 2-amp charge for 10+ hours and that seems to solve it for 10+ days, then it just doesn't have the juice to crank over. The car is completely unmodified, but nearly 4 years old. Oh, the battery did have several cells that were down 1+ inches, but the problem was not solved when I refilled and put it on a long, low charge.

    Battery is only 2 years old in an A3 T. Goes dead intermittently. seems very unusual for a 32,000 car to have a battery last only 2 years.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?

Hello Jr, The fact that the battery goes dead even with a kill switch would lead me to think the new battery is defective.

Battery needs charging too often

You probably have an electrical drain on your battery. Check an see if your light in your trunk stays on all the time. I had this problem before but mine would go dead after 8 hours or so. I could not figure out were my drain was so I installed a sylinoid to cut off all power coming from the battery with a switch I installed inside the car. A quick way to tell if it is an electrical drain is disconnect the battery when you park the car, than re attatch the battery cables next time. If it starts no problem it's a drain somewhere. If not it might be that your alternator is going bad or even possibly your belt going to your alternator is slipping. Hope this helps

I pack my car this morning and when i came back to stat it it couldn, it was jump started. i drove for less than one mile and and it went off again. i recharged the battery again, i drove...

3 possibilities are:
  • Dead cell in battery; a battery with a dead cell won't accept a charge from the alternator
  • Bad alternator; if the car will run on it's own without stalling, the alternator is probably still good; if the car stalls you may have alternator problems
  • Bad starter; (assuming you've ruled out alternator problems) a bad starter will start when the car is cold; once warm, it requires more power to engage than the battery has therefore, it needs a jump start
I'd advise bringing the car to a shop (most autoparts chains will do a free electrical system check) and have the electrical system checked.

I brought a brand new battery and dorve the car for one day. The nexy day I cranked up my car and the battery was dead.

Have your alternator checked and at the same time have the battery checked at your local Auto Zone or O'Reilly auto parts store. Or auto parts store similar to one of those. Sometimes when your battery goes dead it tends to wreak havoc on the alternator which can cause the battery to not hold its charge.

I have a 1996 range rover 4.0 and a friend hooked up the neg battery cable to the battery and the other neg he ground is thi what he should have done

Most batteries have just 2 terminals +ve (Red) and -ve (Black). Modern cars tend to have a -ve earth.

Normally -ve to black and ground +ve to read and HT system.
