SOURCE: battery not holding a charge

Hi

Normally all circuits should be dead when you switch off the ignition.

Only usual live one, is the radiator electric fan.

You should hear this running after you switch off, for only a short while, if you listen you can eliminate this.

Perhaps glove box, or trunk lights are sticking on ? but normally you only get them if side lamps are on, but still worth checking !

You will have to try disconnecting the battery over a weekend, if it is flat on Monday, it must be the battery.

Good Luck

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

John.

SOURCE: 98 cadillac deville battery wont hold a charge

sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Battery is not holding a charge, how long is the standard battery built to last? Also, after I put gas in the vehicle car has trouble starting again.

It's very possible that it's not your battery but your starter acting up. A weak starter will start a car when it's cold, but once you drive the car around and it heats up, it takes more power to start the car than normal, giving the indication that there's something wrong with your charging system when it's really the starter. I'd go to get your charging system checked out b/4 throwing in a new battery, only to find out it's something else. I'm guessing starter based on the limited information provided. Good Luck with your problem.
p.s. Most batteries will last at least 4 years

SOURCE: new battery and alternator. Battery still won't hold charge

Check all your fuses if you had a system failure it could have blown a fuse. I am not sure on your vehicle where the fuse is in the car or under the hood it could also have a relay. You can check your alternator by checking the voltage at the back of the alternator where the big wire bolts on. You should have 14+ volts at the alternator.

SOURCE: battery on 2007 chevy impala died last week

Take it back to the place where you bought it and have them test it. Not all 'new' batteries are perfect. Many can be defective from the factory or damaged during shipping etc.

The older batteries in small appliances only last a few years and then they need replacing. This will get worse until it fails completely.
It's time to replace the battery or the whole vacuum.
The newer appliances use lithium batteries, which will last longer.

How do I set the settings on my NAPA automatic starter/charger 85-435 to charge my car battery or to try to quick start my car? I have a 1997 VW Cabriolet.


It is best to "trickle charge" a low/dead car battery using the lowest setting. The "jump start" function will probably not have enough juice to start your car by itself. Refer to the manual of your charger for safety precautions.

My 2000 Ford Explorer makes a clicking sound (not a turning over sound) when I try to start it. THe lights, radio, and air conditioner seem to work fine. Once the car is jumped...which happens easily, it...


Check your battery voltage when the car is not running. Check voltage again as someone else holds the key to START. Check voltage again after you've jump started it. First reading sould be about 12.5 to 13 volts. Second reading should be greater than 10 volts, and last reading should be 13.5 to 14.6 volts. If first two readings are low, your battery is not charged, or won't hold a charge (defective). if the 'while running' test is less than prescribed, then your alternator is not putting out enough voltage to charge your battery and should be replaced.

2003 olds aurora charging system low volts


The alternator is most likely the problem, it isn't putting out enough of amps to charge the battery, but enough to keep it going which won't last long. Before assuming the battery or alternator, try your battery connections for corrosion or tightness. If you live close to an auto parts store they can check the battery and alternator to see which is the problem. The battery will not hold up long if running lights at night or other power consuming things.

My 91 toyota celica gt will not hold a charge.


the only reason that a battery will go flat is if its not getting a charge from the alternator, the brand new battery you purchased might be a little faulty but i cant see it. has your ride got abnormal stereo in it or aything unusual such as lots of dvd players n such as these can make it so your standard alternator cant charge quick enough before releasing to the equipment.

Two new batteries, won't hold charge


I would Check the Belt Tensioner. If the Belt Tensioner is Not Holding the Belt Tight Enough it will not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery and will result in the Dead Batteries. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
