Might be time for new battery, they only last so long, usually 5 yrs is listed and that's if it's a good one to start with..more pricey. We just had the same thing happen to us. Turned out the alternator was junk, which wouldn't hold the charge from the battery and the battery was a 6yr battery, but we got 8 yrs out of it. Ended up replacing both alternator and battery in Advanced Auto's parking lot, during snow storm in NH!! They let us use their tools to replace both right there. They have tools and they checked both, no cost.

SOURCE: stalling during stop

check the alternator to see what it is pumping out and also check the spark. Also check the fuel pump as it sounds like it isn't cranking out enough gas which may because of low battery. If you have another battery that you can try in the jeep, that would be great and see if you continue to have the same problems. If it is the alternator, after a while the battery will be down in power. Right now I would bet the battery or alternator is bad so have a look and tell me what you find. You will have to test the power output of the alternator

SOURCE: Fan keeps running after engine is shut off

It is normal for the fan to run when engine is off. Engine temps actually rise when the engine is shut off, the heat will rise through the engine compartment. So a Coolant temp sensor controls when the fan shuts on and off, obviously based on the temps of the anti-freeze. The fans are a high draw item, but It would take much longer than an hour breakfast for the battery to run dead. I would check out the battery and charging system first. Is the CEL on? Let me know and we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com

SOURCE: QUICK RUNNING

Check block ground at end of battery cable. Make sure it's clean on the contact surfaces. do same with body ground. Check voltage at the starter. Should be 12v at large cable, 12v at small cable with key turned to start. sorry for the comment before but it was too hard to let it pass! Check back and tell me what you find after testing!

Try replacing Co2 sensor, most people don't realized that unit need replacing every 50-75k miles also. if that does not work, take it to the dealer and have them plug it into the computer, that will allow for them to narrow it down. with service engine light on, it will effect some of your gas mileage and the performances. The dealer charge somewhere around 50 bucks to diagnose using their computer, however 50 bucks will appilied toward the repair bill if they do the work.

2007 rav 4.Battery light came on, drove 20 miles on hwy. stopped, shut car off.started car with a very slow crank. Power steering was gone, all warning lights came on barely made it home. now dead.


Used your battery up just getting home. Now recharge the battery, and test the charging system- could be a bad alternator not charging the battery.

Normally, the alternator powers all the car's electrical needs when the engine is running. If the alternator fails, the battery will then be used to run the electrical needs until the battery is depleted, then the car will shut down. Dead, just like yours. No big deal, just find out why the charging system stopped.

Lacey are you sure your alternator is puting out.just because it is knew doesn't mean it's anygood. But if it is there a fuse at the alternater check it.Also make sure the battery is charged and have someone inside the car where the fuses are.Theother one out at battery lossen the cable for the battery to where they can put it on and off by hand.ok Now as you take off cable look to see if it sparks, if it does there is a short in your wiring or a bad ground.Know the other peson needs to take out a fuse then theperson at bettery need to do there thangjust keep doing till it quit sparking that will tell about where Short is. gl

My battery went dead and after i charged the battery the air conditioning does not cool


What happens is, you have a battery and an alternator. The alternator charges the battery when the engine is running. It can only put out so many amps at 12 volts. A/C compressor runs off the engine, but the clutch for it is electric, and the blower fan is electric. When these are running, unless the car engine is running at above idle RPM's, your alternator may not be actually putting out enough amps to run the A/C AND charge the battery. So it is possible for the battery to go dead, especially if you start the car more than a couple times with out letting the battery charge. It happened to a friend of mine. He delivered newspapers, and it was a hot summer day. His A/C was on, plus, his car had 2 electric fans for the radiator. He was only idling along delivering his papers, and at one point he shut his car off. When he went to re-start, it was dead. He called me and I gave him a jump start, and told him to go for a ride down the expressway, to charge his battery. You see the A/C took say 30 amps, then each cooling fan for his radiator took say 20 amps a piece, then add in the stereo, and the power it takes to fire the spark plugs, and there wasn't enough left to charge the battery. Most cars these days only have 100 amp alternators. Older cars have less

Battery not charging car is dead and will not start


Starting with the battery light, the warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be a faulty alternator, or a problem with the wiring between the battery and the alternator.
Normally you can drive a vehicle for several miles on the battery alone.
If you have charged the battery and it checks out ok, you would need to check the wiring from the battery to the alternator and to the fuse box for problems.

My brake light , battery light and check engine light wont go off after i start my car , and i just got a new battery cus it had went dead , is this a fuse or what could it possibly be ?


Check for charging voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see more than 14 volts. If you see around twelve volts your alternator is not charging.

New battery keeps going dead no low voltage light


Have the vehicle taken to one of many places that will test the Alternator output etc--narrow it down first without replacing that.

Voltage may drop enough to prevent starting without triggering the low voltage issue.

My car is fine when i jump it. but if i shut it off and turn it on SOMETIMES it will be dead. i went to autozone when it started and had it checked and the check said everything was good but i continue to...


It sounds like you need to take your battery terminals off and clean your posts and terminals.Sometimes the simplest things can stop you in your tracks. The Autozone should have been able to tell you what the code meant. If your battery is going dead but your alternator and battery are good. Carefully check your fuses . not the regular ones , the block fuses . You could have an alternator fuse that is blown. Even though everything is working the juice just is not getting to the battery. The charge light on the dash may not tell you if the fuse is blown.

Truck sat for 6 weeks battery went dead. Charged


If checking battery cables and wiring to the starter and ground points doesn't help. Have the battery checked for a bad cell. Preferably before you charge it.

check battery cable for tightness and no corrosion.if all is well charge the battery or jump start it. while engine running check to see if the alternator is charging it.it should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts while engine idling.turn off engine battery voltage should be 12.5. if drops to 11.0 to 10.0 volts.battery is weak.if car running the voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts alternator is charging. if the voltage is 11.8 to 11.0 volts. alternator is not charging.
