Alternator. Check your belt, make sure its tight and still there. Make sure its grounded right and the plug didnt vibrate loose. make sure there is no metal, besides the post clamps, touching your battery also. If this doesnt fix it, take it to auto zone and have them check the alternator.

SOURCE: security system shut down car.ignition was

The security system will not shut down the car while running, if the car shut off while engine was running you may have another problem. Do you have a "chip" or black pellet in your key, if so the wires going to the key cylinder may be broken at the cylinder or the key may be worn if you are having a security problem

SOURCE: 96 Ford Explorer battery drains

Hi. The problem is something on the car is draining the battery, but finding what is draining the battery is not easy.The first thing that comes to mind is if there is a light in the trunk is it going out when the door is closed?This is a simple thing but enough to drain the battery in a week.
One of the main parts of the electrical system is the alternator which has the main battery + cable attaches to it and therefore leakage (drain ) can occur when a part of the alternator goes faulty (usually the regulator ) I have replaced quite a lot for this problem.
The way an auto electrician would find the problem would be to put an amp meter on a battery cable and isolate one system at a time until nil or nearly nil amps are recorded.
Ihope i have been of some help to you, the problem is not an easy one to solve (like looking for a needle in a hay stack).

My driver side brake lights went out. I replaced the blubs and the running lights work plus the passenger brake lights work. so I am lost

Its your turn signal switch in the steering colum. just pull your steering wheel and then the switch. I didn,t want to pay $80 for a new one, so I fixed it with bondo! That was about a year ago...still working fine.

Passenger side reverse light bulb stays lit when lights are turned on. Replaced bulb but didn't solve problem?

Sometimes such a problem is because the ground wire for that light is bad, and so the electricity is feeding to ground through the back-up light.
Try to run a new ground wire from that light socket to the steel body ground.
Be blessed.

2006 Kia Rio will not turn over

the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

The car battery is losing it's charge when vehicle is not running

You have what is called a parasitic draw on the electrical system , battery . Could be a control module not powering down when it's should . a electrical componet is staying on . , light in glove box , something you can't see . Bad diode in the alternator could cause this . But this just gussing , testing is the way to a fix . Watch thesed videos on testing for a draw on the system . Improved Methods to Find Parasitic Draw Battery Drains Overnight

Check engine light is on . Replaced mass air flow sensor last time it came on and solved problem. It's only been 2 months sense its been changed . Have a K&S filter system , made sure I didn't...

take the vehicle to AutoZone and have them read the OBDII code in the computer so you actually have some idea what might be wrong instead of guessing

Light of ABS is always on . on my Golf 2001 manual diesel. I have had no problem with ABS but light stays on since 1 year ago, Can I turn it off

Only way to turn it off would be to remove the ABS sensor (bad idea and potentially dangerous) or to replace the brake sensor. The part runs between $40-60 and is relatively easy to install.
