2006 Corolla LS battery continual drainage

Battery drainage occurs even thought battery and alternator replaced.
Battery replaced at 8000 miles and similar at 28000 miles alterantor replaced. 2 weeks later Feb15, 2009 battery drained again.

I believe dealer has tools to diagnos problem, or they are avoiding to identify the cause.

Difficult to accurately *****, you need to get the charging checked, even though you have a new alternater the problem could be as simple as the charging light not working, which causes the alternater to initiate. or you may have an electrical component staying on draining the battery.

2000 Ford Expedition. My battery light came on and a rattling noise came from the engine. The alternator was replaced but the battery light is still on. What do I do.

If garage replaced alternator, return vehicle for warranty work.

If you replaced alternator, what was wrong woth old unit??

Provided regulator is internal with alterantor, fault is with alternator.

If an external regulator is used then its faulty.

What voltage reading are you getting at idle / 1500rpm??

Battery warning light coming on after a mile , but battery isnt flat and car starts 1st time and lights are ok Car is puegeot partner combi. Stop car and it and it ok for another mile . Battery doesnt seem...

Check your alternator as it sounds like it may be starting to go. The battery light trips when it detects an issue with the charging system. Very rarely, the battery light can trip if there's an issue with the PCM, but this is very rare.

Take a voltmeter with the car off and measure the voltage on the leads of the batter, should be around 12V+-.2. With the car running, measure again and this time it should read 13V-14V. If it does read 13V-14V then it means that the alternator is working. If it is below 12V, then it means your alternator is not charging the battery properly. If it's above 14V, then it means your alternator is overcharging and damaging the battery.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

Battery terminal gets extremely hot. just replaced alterantor and battery. battery indicator light also on.

Sounds like for one reason or another that alternator is putting out too much voltage to battery. Did mechanic check to see if new alternator was rated same or close to old one, as in amperage rating? Pulley on new alternator same size? You'll need to get it to another mechanic who knows what he's doing, obviously that guy wasn't too concerned with curing your problem. That's why I was hoping you had a voltage reading when running.

Replaced battery twice/dead cells

More then likely just a fluke on 2 batteries,but i would check the output on the alternator to make sure it is NOT over charging.

Battery indicator light on while driving

usually the battery warning comes on while on the road, it means one of two things....1) the alternator has stopped charging. this can be either from a bad alternator or a broken drive belt. 2) the charge is too high. this is often from a part in the alterator called a regulator failing. the easy way to test it for one of these conditions is to look at your volt gauge on your display panel. when running it should read app'x 14 volts. if it is much lower or higher, it usually means the alterantor has failed. if you don't have a gauge, you can use a multimeter set to { volts-DC } and when running that should read between 13.5 and 14.5 volts. your car will start with a bad alterantor when you jump start it, but don't drive it too far. (auto parts stores will test your battery and alternator, usually for free)
