Hi, Sounds like a shorted diode in the alternator which would actually drain the battery. Pull the battery cable while the vehicle is running, if the alternator has a short it will stop as if you turned off the key. Good Luck!

92 Saab keeps dying, won't hold charge....


You have the battery and the alternator and the alternator belt and if they are working fine there must be something that is draining the battery. You need an auto electrician to check what the drain is. In such cases,on various vehicles, the BCM, body control module, proves to have something to do with it. Get A GOOD AUTO ELECTRICIAN to check if there is a particular component

Sounds as if you have a short draining the battery overnight. Take the battery negative off and run a 12volt test light between the terminal and the ground post on the battery. leave the key out of the ignition switch. see if there is a dim or bright light glowing in the test light. If either one is the case start pulling out your fuses and watching the light until the light goes out. When it goes out y have identified the circuit your short is in. ( headlamps, door switches, ect. ) Make sure to put each fuse back in the proper place so as not to burn anything up!!!!. By the way , you did NOT keep the positive battery terminal off to see if the alternator was charging did you? If you did you just burned up your new alternator,which by the way will give your battery a direct short to ground through the diode trio in the alternator, thus causing the battery to very quickly drain. and Why should you have to jump start a NEW battery? Check to see if you are lucky enough to have a charging fuse, if you did the positive off while running thing that fuse could save you if you have it.

2004 dodge neon will not turn over


have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables

Battery won't hold charge. replaced battery with new one approx 3 weeks ago. out of blue the battery lost charge to turn over, but lights, radio ect would come one. was able to start with a jump.


Could likely be your alternator. There is the possibility that the new battery is bad as well, but it's more likely that the alternator is going bad and unable to provide sufficient charge for the battery and other vehicle components.
One way to test this is, with the vehicle running, disconnect the negative battery post connection from the battery and notice if the engine shuts off. If the alternator is good, the engine will continue running.
If you suspect the alternator is the problem, you can take the vehicle to a local Advance Auto Parts store and they will check it free of charge.

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont hold a charge and needs to be jumped. When trying to start it makes a clicking noise and the console instruments jump. Is this the battery??? Or the alternator?? Or...


First remove and clean battery cables and battery posts with a wire brush or sand paper. Make sure battery is charged and check to see if it starts. Then check battery condition and charging system. The problem could be cables, battery, or alternator. Check them in order and repair or replace as needed. Check cables, battery, belts(tension and condition), and charging system in order. Do this because bad cables will give false readings for other tests and so on.
