SOURCE: battery keeps going flat

Have you had battery load tested? That's a good place to start, then we need to check for a current draw, if that checks out good.

SOURCE: Dead battery even after 12 hours of charging?

it sounds to me that you could just have a bad connection at the battery post. look to see if there is any corrossive build up on them. this can happen over time. it is also possible you have a dead cell in the battery. your best bet is to remove the battery and take it to any major auto parts store. most of the major retailers will check the battery free of charge. hope this helps

Was the old alternator tested to see if it was bad? If it was and all wires are in good shape and reconnected the new alternator the new one may be bad also. It can happen.

Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!

Battery drain when car sits.


depending on you vehicle there is alot of things that can drain the battery, alarm. power sounder for alarm. immobilizer. clock /radio or even a devise that should not be on but is. this would need to be tested on a power drain. on a fully charged battery 12v system the battery should 12.08 volts when connected to the vehicle, test the voltage and leave it for an hour then retest it should be the same or 1-2 volts drop anymore than that for just an hour there is something wrong it could be the battery or one of the above.

Does not start, battery ok. alternator and starter test out ok


The car battery has 6 cells, each cell holds 2 volts, and connected in series adds to 12 volts. Just like your flashlight, each battery hooked in series results in increased voltage. Its possible one cell is not holding a charge, which slowly drains power from adjacent cells. In battery series connection, if one cell won't hold a charge, electrons will flow to lowest cell voltage in attempt to equalize voltage. So when one cell drops to less than 2 volts, the electrons from other cells will flow to this cell to recharge and bring voltage up to equalize voltage level. To diagnose for dead cell in 6-cell car battery, remove the 6 caps to expose the electrolyte liquid AFTER you have recharged the battery for 20 minutes with 10-amp charger, or until "fully charged" indicator comes "on." With a digital voltage meter set to 5 volts DC reading, connect the negative black probe to negative side of battery and touch the liquid electrolyte with the red positive probe. The voltage meter will display the voltage reading on each cell as you move the red positive probe from one cell to another. Make a note of each voltage reading from each cell. Wait one hour or more, then take another reading of each cell. The cell that has the lowest reading is the one that's draining power from the adjacent cells. A normal battery will show no change in voltage level between the first and second reading an hour later. A defective battery will show a drop in voltage to indicate one or more cell is slowly draining power to gradually render the battery completely dead 36 hours later.

I tried to start and all power goes out then I Disconnect positive and re connect there is power but it wont even click over and power goes out again


Your description does not rule out a bad battery. Make sure the cable connections are clean and connected correctly. Assuming this is all good check the voltage with a DC volt meter. A fully charged battery should test 12.85 Volts. If it is very near 12 or lower it is a week battery. With jumper cables or other means to get good voltage try and start it again. If is start you have a bad or week battery. If you get it to run check the voltage again while it is running. The meter should now read 13.5 -14.0 volts. If not above 13 volts it is not charging properly causing the battery to run down.....................

Sounds like a bad alternator. Drained your battery and when you turned on the lights it took all the power left in your battery. When you drain a battery down that far, they are real hard to jump, and coupled with the alternator, the car is not producing enough current to start and stay running.

I would take the alternator off and take it to oyur local auto parts store to be tested. If bad, replace it and charge the battery fully before starting. Then check voltage at battery with motor running. Should be 13.2 -14 Volts DC. If not, you may have a bad battery cable or blown fusible link. (especially that if the alternator tests good).....Mike

2000 Ford Taurus - anti-theft system keeps locking me out. Happens at gas stations. Loosened battery terminal and left off for the night and then it worked. Went and got gas this morning 6:30 paid for...


Hello, This problem is usually from a Bad battery. The car can run with less than a fully charged battery. The Antitheft system needs 13.2- 13.6 Volts to be considered fully charged even though the system is a 12 Volt system.

The Antitheft system is made to reduce the power to the starter if the Voltage is low. So the starter will only get 1/2 of the power it needs to turn the starter. Sometimes it is not enough power to even spin the starter. I do not like the idea, but all Ford products and some others work this way.

You may also be having an Ignition key problem. The key has a computer chip in it and is suppose to communicate with the electronic lockout feature of the Antitheft. Sometimes the key is bad (expensive and needs to be programmed) or the reader in the Ignition circuit is bad or lost its mind. Low voltage from a bad battery can scramble the reader. If you have 2 keys for your car, try the other one.

Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance autoparts will run tests on your car for free. If you need a battery, I believe they still install them free too! I hope my solution is very helpful in solving this problem. You may need to get a jumper start to get you on your way.

If you watch your battery cable connections, there are some portable jumper boxes you can buy for emergency starts. They do need to be charged to maintain them and last 18 months to 2 years. This is just an additional course of action for you, but may help until you get everything fixed.

The car is not holdong a charge. I replaced the Battery about a year ago. Today I replaced the alternator. I used jumper cables it ran for about 20 minutes and then died again. All the wires look good. Any...


FIRST, YOU MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED.. A GOOD BATTERY WILL GO FOR 12 HOURS EVEN IF THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT WORKING.. SECOND YOU TURN THE CAR ON.. ONCE THE CAR IS ON. YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY,, IF THE ALTERNATOR IS GOOD , THE CAR SHOULD REMAIN ON WITHOUT A BATTERY.. IF IT SHUTS DOWN , YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR OR THE WIRING IS WRONG ONE OF THE TWO.. SHORTS ON YOUR WIRING CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO LOOSE POWER.. BUT NOT THAT FAST. BECAUSE IF THE SHORT WAS TO SERIOUS.. YOUR WIRING WOULD BE BURNED.. COMPLETELY..
IF THE ALTERNATOR IS OKAY,, REPLACE YOUR BATTERY,, MOST OF THE TIME BATTERIES GO BAD EASY WITH ANY LITTLE PROBLEM THE CELLS BURNOUT AND THEY DONT HOLD A CHARGE EVEN IF FULLY CHARGED THEY WILL LOOSE POWER IMMEDIATELY .. I THINK THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.. SINCE IT ONLY LASTED LIKE 20 MINUTES.

My Nubira has no power.I found the car this morning making a clicking noise and the red light flashes.Open the drivers dootr and it stops.


Check the battery and cables. Make sure your post clamps and any cables that connect to the clamps are secure.

Check the battery voltage. It should be close to 13 volts with the key off and doors closed, with the headlights on the voltage will drop to 12 or a little under. The headlights should stay bright for hours if you have a fully charged good battery.

If the battery voltage is low and the headlights pull it down even lower, the battery is ether bad or not charged. Try charging it if possible. If not take it to a auto parts store or battery store. They can charge it and load test it for you.

Dead battery even after 12 hours of charging?


Sounds like battery is fine, or at least o.k. , but there is a problem with the starting system. If you put headlights on, then have someone try to start it while you watch headlights, and they don't dim way down, then battery if o.k. for now. Do you know what killed the battery originally, was it just from sitting for a while & not being used? Listen & locate the clicking noise if you can, it sounds like relay or solenoid. You can try a boost & see if that may help. If it's automatic, move shifter through all gears, then try. If standard, make sure clutch in all the way . Let me know what happens.
