Check the condition and tension of the drive belt have the alternator test for correct out put as there may be a faulty diode and it is charging ac current so the battery is doing all the work and will eventually go flat.

08 commander v6 no power, sputtering charge light flashing trackshon control and check engine light on


charge lamp is telling what its sick.
why ignore that?
my guess, is battery is now discharged and all electronics no nuts
when the battery goes dead. dash V meter drops below 12v ....that is battery discharging..
so fix the charge system.
you can even go to walfart and they have charge system test box.
but id bet they are closed today like everything,

take that lamp serious. (it means change system or battery faults)

Hi there, I have an Isuzu trooper 1999. It keeps discharging the battery. When i start the car and take out one of the battery cable the car turn off. I took out the alternator and get it check at...


taking a cable off the battery while the engine is running is a guaranteed way of killing the alternator . The alternator has not been checked properly as it has to be on the vehicle to test all the cables and regulator. If the battery was tested with a multimeter then it has not been tested correctly as it is done with a load tester to determine if the battery is capable of holding a charge under a discharge load.. Batteries can discharge internally as well as from a current flow though a completed circuit Ie-glove box light on --boot light on -- door light on relay coil shorting out . Take it to an accredited auto electrician and have the work done properly as it saves a lot of heart ache.

Resolving battery dying out and discharge light dosen't come on?


Discharge light will actually only come on when the alternator is not putting out its normal 13.5 - 14.5 volts. Sounds to me your alternator is fine, your battery has some dead cells, and will go dead soon as you shut off your engine. Battery is not accepting the charge the alt. is giving it. New battery is needed.

I have a 1994 f-150 pick up got a new battery & when i put the heat on it discharges & now truck won't.


You mean with the engine running? If the engine is running, the heater fan should be getting power from the alternator, not the battery. Does your battery light go off after engine is running? Or does the voltage gauge show normal charging when running?
If you can start the truck, have your charging system checked out. If it won't start now, have the battery charged up and try again. Then have the charging system checked. If it is good, your heater fan may have a short and drawing too much current, But a heater fan will run the battery down pretty quick, if the engine is not running.

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

Battery light went on and the vehicle died under way 20 minutes later.


If the Power steering and everything else seems to work the problem should be in the Alternator or Battery. Check your Battery cables for loose or dirty connections.

If you find the Battery cables were the problem, you need to recharge the Battery. A jumpstart may get you going, but the Alternator is meant to keep up with the current electrical demands and it will take a long time to fully recharge the Battery.

Autozone and Oreillys can check the Alternator and Battery if they are carried in, or on the car. Since the Expedition is dead, you can take in the Battery for a recharge and testing. This will keep you from needless work removing the Alternator if only the Battery was bad. If the Battery tests good after the recharge, then your only remaining option is to remove the Alternator for testing. Should both the Battery and the Alternator test out good, you have a major electrical malfunction. You will need an electrical shop.

Car wont start but the lights, radio and everything battery operated comes on but it just makes a click noise when trying to start engine


If you can hear a click (quite loud) from the engine compartment, but the starter won't crank, this also could be caused by discharged battery. Battery problems - Discharged or dead battery is one of the possible reasons for a car not to start. Very common is the situation when we forget to turn the lights off overnight (the dome light, for example), which causes the battery to drain. In this case when attempting to start a car, all you will probably hear will be a clicking noise - there won't be enough power to turn the starter. Here is the simple way to check if the battery is discharged: Turn the ignition on. With the engine off, turn the windshield wipers on. If they move way too slow, much slower than usual, the battery is probably discharged. Also look at the dashboard lights - if they appear very dim, the battery is probably discharged.
If the battery is relatively new, it can be recharged. All you need to do is to boost your car and let the engine run for a while to charge the battery.

However if your battery is more than three-four years old, you will probably need to buy a new one. Sometimes, an old battery may even die with no apparent reason, even if the day before it was OK.

If the battery is OK, the starter solenoid, starter cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.
