SAME THING, HAPPEN TO ME YOU HAVE AN OPEN CIRCUIT SOME
PLACE IN A GROUND WIRE,
A WIRE OR AN OPEN RELAY IS DRAINING YOUR BATTERY.
SOLUTION: CONNECT A (TEST LIGHT) TO YOUR BATTERY NEGATIVE WIRE AND THE POINTY END OF YOUR TEST LIGHT TO THE BATTERY NEGATIVE PORT IS THE LIGHT IS ON YOU GOT A SHORT, DISCONNECT FUSES ONE BY ONE UNTIL YOU SEE THE LIGHT BLINKING , IN MY CASE
THE FUSE THAT I WAS BLINKING WAS THE EMERGENCY BRAKE.
I DISCONNECTED THE EMERGENCY , I LET THE BATTERY CONNECTED ALL NIGHT AND I DON,T HAVE ANY MORE BATTERY DRAIN.......
I HOPE THAT RESOLVED YOUR PROBLEM

Okay my boyfriend has a 1999 dodge intrepid with 172,000 miles on it. he bought a new battery but now the battery light is still on? do you know what the problem could be? also what could he do to get it...


if the battery light is on while running the charging system is not working.you can check
with a volt meter,setting meter to dc volts & connect meter leads to battery.reading should
be 13.2 - 14.5 volts if lower than this your only reading battery voltage.check single red wire to the alternator it should read battery volts 12v.if battery voltage is present than alternator is faulty,if no voltage reading you'll need to trace & repair the wiring
note; battery should be fully charge before testing

good luck

did you have the alternator tested on the car? the alternator may be good but the wiring to it may have a fault, have some one do a charging test on the car, if it still shows that the it is charging have them do an AC current test it could be that the diode is out in the alternator which would cause the light to come on and also the battery to drain when the engine is off. If it is not charging on the car suspect the plug end on the alternator ( we see them fail alot ). there is also a charge fuse might check it. The charging is controlled by the BCM ( body control module). If no charge and plug and wiring are good , fuse is good , suspect BCM......GOOD LUCK

A new battery should have approx 12.62 fully charged
It could be slightly more
If you ever see 13 volts, on an old battery, it is gone

You need a min of 12.5, to do any testing of your vehicle, or you charge it
It should hold 12.5 or more for 3 or 4 weeks,then charge, if you let the truck sit
unused.

I have a 99 Intrepid and it wont start. There is no power to the dash(nothing). Battery is 1 year, Starter new. With boost cables, dash lights up, but car only clicks.


battery is dead again let it charge longer then try it.
clean your cables and then have the alt and battery checked if they are both good then something is staying on like mine my brake lights stayed on once and killed the battery
good luck

My dodge intrepid wont charge


Check in the trunk and the glove box to be sure the lights are shutting off when they are closed, and be sure your interior lights go off when you shut the door. If it's nothing like that, it is probably your starter solenoid that is draining it after you shut it off, and it will need to be replaced.

1998 dodge intrepid engine keeps draining battery


Go to a part store such as Auto Zone and they will LOAD test the battery for free. If like Dodge said its the battery go back where you bought it and demand a new one. If its not the battery go back to Dodge and complain that you payed for them to fix the problem and they didn't.

Battery drains overnight


First thing you need to do is make sure battery is fully charged & have it load tested. If that and the rest of your charging system checks out, then you'll have to test for a battery draw, when vehicles off.

86 cutlass wont start with a fully charged battery it turns over really slow and drains the battery


Have your starter checked. Once it goes bad it drains your battery very quickly when trying to start vehicle.
