    My 2003 Chevy Trailblazer's "Battery Charging" dashboard light and dash gear indicator remain illuminated even after I turn off the vehicle. Battery needed a jump this morning but the battery itself was tested as good. What might be keeping these lights on and is that what is draining the battery?

Does or did the check engine light ever come on durring all of this ? Or did the alternator light ever come on durring all of this? Jump starting another vehicle, damage to your battery I duoght it, damage to your Alternator and or other electrical componants highly possible if not connected properly.The new battery going dead again could cause all of the problems you have discribed for me. If I were you the first thing I would do is check the new battery and see if it has gon dead now. If so check to see if it is Frozen. If it is frozen you will half to replace it, because once a battery has frozen it will never hold a charge again.Once you have replaced the battery with a good known one (fully charged). Start engine and warm up to normal operating temperature and then disconnect the battery if the engine keeps running then the Alternator is fine . If the engine stalls then you need a new Alternator.A bad Alternator could have ben the problem from the start.I also live in a cold climate zone ( RedDeer, Alberta, Canada).Good Luck and have a good XMSS.

I forgot to turn off the lights in my car. What can I do to start the car running? Do I need to replace the battery?


You can either jump the battery, or remove the battery from the car and bring it to your local repair shop to have it charged and tested, (a lot of auto supply stores will do this for free so call around), or you can jump start your battery and hope it holds a charge.

To jump a battery you will need a set of jumper cables and a second car, or a battery booster pack, (nice investment, they really are handy in a jam).

To jump a car with jumper cables:
******* Always where eye protection*********
1) Open the hood on the dead car and locate the battery.
2) Park the second car as close to the front of the dead car as possible, (just try to leave enough room to walk around the vehicles if you can).
3) Open the hood on the second car and locate the battery.
4) Attach the red, (positive) cable clamp to the Positive, (+) terminal of the battery on both cars.
5) Connect the black, (negative) cable clamp to the negative, (-) terminal of the battery of both vehicles.
6) With the second car running leave the vehicle to sit for about 5 minutes then attempt to start the dead vehicle.
7) If vehicle fails to start, wiggle the cable clamps to create a better connection.
8) If vehicle starts, remove the cable clamps negative first then the positive.
9) You may consider bringing the vehicle to your local auto supply to have the battery load tested once the car has run for a while, (most auto supply stores will do this for free so call around)


Using a booster pack is basically the same, except, you replace the second car with the booster pack. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for charging the booster pack before use.

Good luck. Please rate, thanks.

Battery on a porsche boxster is dead will not start up


If the battery is VERY dead it may take quite a while jump start the car. You may have to run the car with the good battery for five or ten minutes to get enough charge in the old battery to start the car. Other wise a very dead battery will just "soak up" the electricity from the good battery. If your battery was old to begin with it may be unserviceable. I would take the battery out and take it to an auto parts store that can charge and test it. They will usually do this for free.
