About once every 2 to 3 weeks car won't start. Battery appears dead. Then next day fine. Battery holding charge, not starter either. Baffe


If the battery appears dead when the fault occurs, it probably is the battery (or pos/neg leads) batteries are devious and take pleasure in appearing fully charged. Eliminate further by replacing battery, buy or borrow. Only other explanation is a short to negative on particular day, check starter motor cables. Best of luck.

Is my battery bad?


If the battery tests good, and your charging system is working correctly, you may have something using power in the car when everything should be turned off. It could be a short in the wiring, a bad relay, or other component.
If you disconnect the battery and it does not loose power overnight, look for a power drain.

2004 chev silveroda 4x4 z71 5.3 motor,has abattery drainage dead in a week and half


Probably the battery, If you don't start it any time within the week and a half. Computers in the truck stay on all the time. A new battery will drain in about 30 days. because of the computers. A shorted dome light will kill a old battery in about 2 days. Starters and alternators will kill them over night. Start it every 2 or 3 days for 5 minutes, you shouldn't have a problem.

Starter relay


Have a voltmeter? stop guessing, use the meter. same time and $$$$
starter? but what are the symptoms. ?????? no start sure. but
1: dead starter (not a sound)?
2: solenoid on starter click?
3: dead solenoid?
4: some times starts if i wiggle A/T shift lever? PRNDL bad.?

my guess, is the relay was good. all a long ?
if the old relay was burned to a crisp in inside (did you look) then
the starter can be shorted. they can in fact short.

we use to simple and cheap tools, a voltmeter and ammeter
The key switch energizes the relay.
the relay has a coil. if the coil goes to 12v, (meter across coil)
then the relay is energized. (cranking)
if that works we look at the relay output. (solenoids can short too)
use the volt meter.
if the voltage at battery sags below 10v. the battery is bad. or the starter is shorted.
we use an ammeter to see that short.
100- 200 amps (no engine stated but is covered in the FSM)

here is a voltage plot.
if you watch current it it goes to 500amps and the solenoid just bangs
the starter is shorted.

test 1:
voltmeter to battery neg lug (black meter lead)
meter on 20vdc range (battery with meter there,,reads 12.6vdc.)
red lead to starter solenoid small wire, key line (sT) i call that.
I turn the key to ST position.
the solenoid ST pin (small) goes to what voltage. key held there.?
no wire pulled, this is a live test.
we do that first.

Check battery cables are correct ! Prime suspect here ! Alternator may be damaged and shorting .. Don't drive any car that will melt jumper cables ! Something very basic wrong here.

Disconnect the positive lead of the battery and hook a simple test light from that lead to the positive post of the battery. The light will come one for a second and go out. If it stays on you can start looking for the short by one by one pulling fuses going to circuits that don't need the keys to work. The frist thing befiore starting this test is to unplug the hood light if you have one. If the courtesy light isn't the problem, pull that fuse and you can do the rest of the testing with the doros open. Good luck.

Hello i have a 2004 expedition , and i have been having issues with my battery draining. about a month and a half ago i went away vacation , came home to start my truck only to relize my battery was dead....


Your solution is a little hard to find too bad they told you to change the alternator. It is a simple fuse you need to change that is blown. on the expetion sometimes there are two one in the fuse box and one under a black cover follow the alternator small wires it should point to the direction of the small i believe 7.5 amp fuse. it was hard to find and i do this for a living. good searching.

Charging ok new battry wont hold charge 4 more than 2 days


You can start by disconnecting the battery ground cable, connect a 12 volt test lamp between the cable and the battery post, If it lights up you have a short. and you'll need to start pulling fuses one at a time until the test lamp goes out. at that point you will know where to look for short.

Battery goes dead after a couple days. was told it could be anti-lock break module...how hard and expensive are these to replace


Your battery going dead every couple days has absolutly nothing to do with your anti-lock break module. (unless it is causing a short or something and staying on-which i doubt.) Have you ever thought that maybe the battery may be dead and old and need replacing. you should test to see how strong the battery is first with a volt meter or load tester. batterys go dead all the time- more so this time of year where it starts to get cold out. If your battery is new or just got it. (usuaslly 2 or 3 years you should be fine). - it may be your alternator isnt charging the battery anymore. Make sure all dome lights are off when the doors are closed. or that nothing else is left on
