If the battery is actually good and does not have a ( bad cell ) then I would be looking at a bad ground wire.

SOURCE: needs jump

Check the battery for charge and alternator for power (free at Autozone) It might be deposited/rusted contacts on alternator and battery to reduce the electric current to battery from altrnator so battery just draining out. Also if it is very cold overnight (less than 0 F) battery lost the cranking power.
Please kindly let me know if the information provided was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

SOURCE: Battery needs jump start if car is not driven for 3 days.

u either have a shorted cell in the battery or the system has a current draw like a glove box light being left on, try disconnecting the battery the next time you leave it, if it starts ok then u have a current draw and need to find the source of that draw.

First of all, disconnect the negative cable from the battery and charge the battery up to a full charge. When that is done, check the battery voltage with a volt meter; you should see about 12.5 to 13.5 volts DC. Next, reconnect the negative battery cable and make sure all cables and connections are clean and tight at the battery and the starter. Start the car and check the voltage at the battery again with the car running. You should see about 13 to 14.5 volts DC which confirms that the alternator is doing it's job.
Next, check to see if your brake lights are on when no one is pushing on the brake. If they are on, then that is what's draining your battery.
If that is not the problem and your car battery continues to go dead after a couple of days of sitting, you have some sort of "parasitic load". You will probably need an automotive electrical expert to find the parasitic load.
If you find that the brake lights are on when no one is pushing on the brake, you most likely have a little plastic piece broken that mounts near the top of the brake pedal shaft. I believe it is called a "brake pedal stopper" and it is supposed to push against the brake light switch when there is no pressure applied to the brake pedal. When it breaks, you should find the remnants on the driver's floor area. You can get a new one from the dealer for a couple of bucks. You may want to use a flashlight to check things out near the top of the brake pedal shaft to see where the brake light switch is supposed to be pushed by the "stopper".
I hope this helps.
Good luck, Mark

SOURCE: Check gauge light came on in my 1999 dodge

Charge your battery to full charge, next if you have a test light hook up the negative cable to the battery then with the test light touch one end to the positive battery cable and one to the positive post, is the light on? if yes is it bright? if yes Check your glove box and remove the glove box light check the light again, is it still bright? then check the rear cargo lamp and see if it's on if not, remove the bulb anyway and check the light one more time. if the light is still bright disconnect the light from the positive cable and the battery and then disconnect the positive wire to the alternator once it is disconnected do the light test again. Hook light to post and to the positive cable, is the light still bright? if no It's the alternator diode trio regulator Bridge, if it's still bright hook up the alternator wire again and then with the hood up and the hood light disconnected or the bulb pulled, locate the fuse panel and remove one fuse at a time, while you watch the light be sure to have the bulb out of the dome light so it does not give you a false reading. Now pull one fuse at a time if the light goes out thats where you have a problem on that circuit, on the fuse panel lid it will have it marked as what it is you can let me know what circuit it is and I can tell you how to check that circuit or if you prefer you can go to http://www.alldatadiy.com and buy a subscription for your car and it will have all the test and wiring information you want.
If you find the alternator is the culprit it could even be the brushes have fallen out one side or the other and is shorting if the battery is fully charged take it to auto zone and they can test the alternator output, if it does not put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts and 60 or 90 amps and 900 RPMS you know the alternator is bad just buy a replacement because rebuilding your alternator would cost as much buying a new or rebuilt alternator that has had everything done to it.
Now for the check engine light while your at auto zone you can have them pull the codes for your computer and that will help give you an ideal if the two problems are related. If the battery voltage drops below 10.5 volts the check engine light will come on because the computer is detecting low voltage if you run it on low voltage for very long you may burn out the computer. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya

SOURCE: Cadillac 1999 DeVille Battery goes dead after

You should check for voltage draws when the vehicle is off... Disconnect the negative battery termal, Pull dome light fuse,and connect a light or volt meter between the two.

common offenders are alternator diodes. These fail and cause drain.

Then you have to check, circuit by circuit, until you find the offending system.

Also, before doing anything, disconnect negative terminal and see if the battery is still fully charged after a few days...

Weak connection between battery post and cable. Since the jumper cables bypass this, by clipping on the cable ends, the car will start with a jump. Takes less current to start a warm car than a cold one, hence it starts all day. I would look closely at the cable ends where they attach to the battery. Clean them until spotless with baking soda and water and terminal cleaner brush.

If this does not solve the problem, clean the chassis ground on the other end of the - battery cable and + cable where it connects to the starter.

Check your alternator output also. Battery should not be defective in 2 years.

Possible current drain when key is off. Put a voltmeter inline with the battery and check for draw. If you get more than a few millivolts something is on and drawing current. Glove box light maybe? Check by pulling fuses until you find the source of the draw.

This is just a suggestion that may fit the symptoms. It sounds like you are not getting fuel at times which could mean that your fuel pump is supplying fuel, but your in line fuel filter is getting clogged and not letting fuel pass to the injectors. The fuel that has mandated alcohol in it is highly hydroscopic and picks up a lot of water that ends up in your tank and mixes with the rust that it causes on the steel tank. That gunk is sucked up by the pump and under pressure blocks your fuel filter after a while, and is so impacted that it cuts off the fuel flow stalling the engine. If you let it sit for a while, then the impacted debris settles down in the bottom half of the filter allowing the fuel to flow, but under pressure it builds up at the exit port again. It could be as simple as changing the fuel filter.

There very will could be a battery drain, but what I would do first, is go to any auto parts, where they will do a battery test for free, could have a bad cell in the battery and not holding a charge.

Every time my 04 nissan max sits for a couple of days it wont start its not the alt and i have changed the battery


You obviousily have a drain on your battery. However get your battery checked again anyways just bc it's new doesn't mean its properly rotated. Think abt a lb of ground beef at the grocery store. Just bc it's there doesn't mean the date doesn't have to be checked. I would start there. If that isn't it, I would take it to a electrical shop. You would have something draining your battery. Good Luck, but try the battery.

Manual VW Passat 93 wont start


I had the same problem with my 93 Passat diesel, good lights and glow plugs but no effort to turn over. I could hear the relay kicking in the dash (by the drivers window.) I decided to cross the starter terminals and then discovered that the wire was corroded under the solenoid and into the body of the starter. I got a replacement starter and it rolls over fine. Now if I could get ti to pick up fuel... hahahaha
