Check voltmeter if equiped if not use any know good volt or multi meter & check for 13 to 14.5 volts with vehicle running.If in spec.Try a current or amp. draw test spec. should be around 300 milliamps,with ignition key out , & all assessories off if more check to see if any assessories are left on with key out of ignition [dome lites , glove box lites.assessory chargers plugged into cig outlets ect...] this will drain battery.I had a problem with a tahoe awhile back draining the battery. I traced the current draw to the factory radio on / off switch was sticking & making slight contact to complete circuit enough to draw more than 700 milliamps & draining the battery.Sprayed some contact cleaner into switch ,behind knob & turned back & forth while pushing in & out.It corrected the batery drain.Hope this can help.

What happen was something is draining your battery its hard to find those kinna case cause you dont have any idea where it come from what i suggest are get a wiring diagram it would be easier but if you cant pull one just check all your wirings i am guessing that something is touching on your ground, short to ground is hard to find coz youll need to check everything and also you need some knowledge on electrical but youll figure out...

BATT fuse dead short in 1995 yukon


You don't need to replace the fuse box , an you don't have a dead short to ground ! The fuse would blow ! You have a parasitic drain on that fuse . You need to go to http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams an power distribution diagrams , see what all other fuse's are feed from that an pull them out one at a time till the draw stops. There are some good videos on youtube showing how to do this ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy You'll need a DVOM !

01 sunfire battery is not charging


I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be the ignition coil. Ran fine cold but once everything was heated up it broke a connection and went dead. I wonder if you might be having the same thing but in the alternator? Just a thought.

2002 chevy tahoe, draw on battery, new battery, altenator good, discounected pass-power seat(heard they go bad)...don't know what to do?


try unhooking the power wire off the back of altenator it may charge but if a diode is stuck it will drain your battery if this is the problem the altenator will still charge but will drain your battery over night

Not charging replaced alternater still wont charge


Be sure to charge the battery, otherwise you might smoke the new alternator(not made to charge a dead batt.). Have the batt. load tested. Check batt. cable ends for corrosion.

I got 04 ford focus good battery alternator but no charge also i check fuse box next t the battery and the other inside the car everything is good but my alternator still dont charge


1) check 10A fuse in the batt. juction box (eng. comp.) hot at all times.
2) check the large red battery wire to the alt. for good conn.
3) make sure the alt. is grounded properly
4) gray wire sent from the alt. to the PCM
5) blue wire sent from the PCM to the regulator (alt.)
6) small red wire power frorm the 10A fuse
if all checks out and still not charge replace the alt.

My gmas 98 avenger (2.0) wont start. i bought her a batt about 6 mnths ago. it ran fine. but she let it sit for a week, now no start. batt is dead. afteri charge it wont turn or even make a sound, then...


Back to "square one" If battery was drained by a short, etc and sat for a week like that, likely the battery is now doa...Have it tested. Then start checking for source of drain...at this point everything is suspect. Put an ammeter between either battery cable and battery and start pulling fuses till draw is gone. then check system that fuse serves. Yes \, could be a bad alternator but you really should test before wasting time especially if it's not that.

When I turn the ignition on the battery light comes on and the voltage gauge drops between 9 & 14. Then it slowly goes up to around 14. I replaced the battery. Alternator??


take volt meter check voltage on batt.while truck is idling,voltage should be between 13.5-14.5v,turn headlights on it should stay in that range if it goes below,check for bad wire connection at alt.,if conn. are ok,theres a good chance alt. not charging properly!before doing test make sure batt.is full charge!
