1999 cadillac deville brake light switch

I have a 99 deville and when i bought it the battery went dead. the dealer replaced it and it was good for a while then it died again. i noticed that the brake lights were staying on after about the third time i charged the battery. could the brake light switch be bad, cause if i keep hitting the brake pedal it goes out and then it is fine when i go to start it again.

I have a 2004 deville my battery run down over night


IF THEY CHECKED FOR A DRAW ON THE BATTERY AND THERE WAS NONE DID THEY CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT? IF IT WAS IN SPECS THEN YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A BAD BATTERY. YOU MAY WANT TO HAVE IT CHECKED AGAIN. THE DEALER IS NOT ABOVE MAKING MISTAKES

96 infiniti g20 ABS light came on and car died


Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units If you needed a bigger battery then the autozone salesperson should have sold you the correct battery first time round.( try getting a refund on the first battery) Jump starting an efi vehicle incorrectly will do serious damage to the control module requiring a new ecu unit. Check what is staying on when you switch off including interior lights/ boot light

Your alternator is dead/dying. Nissan puts both of those lights on to tell you that the alternator isn't charging your battery.

Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.

Radio/cd player stopped working after battery replaced


Had battery replaced on 2005 DTS and afterward the radio/NAV/On-Star would not work.(Totally dead) The dealer who installed could not locate problem. (No GM dealer in Amador County, CA). I read several forums citing this/similar problems. I checked the three fuses labelled "radio, audio, NAV" by pulling, checking and reinstalling (all three were good). When I then restarted the car, everything was once again working! Poor connection? Corroded contacts? Some mysterious computer glitch? Who knows?
