You might need to get your battery checked as well as your alternator as there may be a faulty regulator there.

This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  3. Disconnect the heater hoses. Be careful not to damage the core by pulling on the hose to remove. Cut the hoses if they will not come off easily.
  4. Remove the instrument panel.
  5. Disconnect the resistor assembly.
  6. If possible, disconnect and move the duct (non air conditioning) or the evaporator housing (air conditioning) to the right to gain clearance for the heater unit. If equipped with air conditioning, do not disconnect air conditioning system until absolutely necessary. Refer to Section 1 for discharging, evacuating and recharging the system.

My car will start and idle fine even with lights, heater, ect turned on but when i start to drive it the battery will drain, why? We put a new alternator on the car and are still having the same problem.


Possibly the new alternator is bad or is not hooked up properly. Take it to any major auto parts store and they will do a free diagnosis of your charging system to help pinpoint the problem.

I have replaced the alternator in my 1988 camaro v8 z28 and i still have a discharge in my battery that i cant fix.


Check to see if the alternator is charging,and if it is charging correctly,and the battery is good,test the battery with a load tester,if they check out good,then there is most likely a draw in the electrical system drawing voltage with the key off,check for a clock radio to be pulling down the battery,or a interior dome light or something of this nature,trunk light or hood light.Voltage for the charging system checked at the battery should be 13.65 to 14.25 with the head lights on,and the ac on high blower.Now to check for a draw,remove the negative battery cable and put a test light in between the cable and the negative post of the battery.If the test light lights up,then something in the vehicle is drawing voltage,pulling one fuse,at a time will help find the circuit that is causing the problem.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

You need to pull fuses to see,but it can still be the alternator,with a bad diode allowing the drain,remove the negative battery cable from the battery,then buy a test light,they are cheap,clip one end to the negative battery cable,and touch the tip of the test light to the battery post,and the test light will light up,cause there is a draw on the system,make sure the doors are shut,and the lights are off.Then unplug the connector on the alternator,if the test light light goes off,the alternator is the problem,if not,remove the dome light fuse,and start pulling fuses one,at a time,and putting them back in,as you go,if you pull a fuse,and the test light light goes out,that is the circuit that is drawing the voltage from the battery,leave it out,and hook cable back up,and see what does not work with the fuse still out,and that will be the problem,please rate if this was at all helpful,thank you.

I have a 2005 Buick Rainier. The A/C unit has a full charge but the compressor won't come on. The relay checked out ok, yet when jumped out the compressor works.


The ac system has to be reset,removal of the fuse for the ac,will do this,leave it out for about 10 seconds then replace it,removal of the negative battery cable will most likely do it,but,the computer for the vehicle might loose it`s memory if you do this,unless you have had the battery out before,and know that it will not,after reseting the ac system,have the ac gauges put on the car,and see what the readings will tell,there is a problem there somewhere or the ac system would not shut down,the system while not running,it is hard to tell if there is enough freon ,or not,but check it with the gauges to tell for sure what the problem is.
