Not working batteries

Hi. Just a quick question. I am changing batteries in my sons favourite digger that he got for Christmas. I have new Duracell ultra power aa batteries after I insert them there's not one ounce of Power, when i press the power check on d side it says they have 100 % power. When I put the old batteries back in they still work slightly. Not sure what the problem might be. Thank u in advance for your help. Regards, jackie

SOURCE: power seat switch

It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.

SOURCE: new battery in 06 mazda 6

1. Turn ignition switch to "on" position.
2. Open passenger window completely from passenger side window switch.
3. Close passenger window completely from passenger side window switch, and hold switch for an additional 2 seconds.
4. Turn ignition back to "lock" position.

That's it. Works like a champ. And here you thought it was more than just a battery dying....I did.

SOURCE: driver side power window controls

I was told its a common defect...just by the way it was made. I took the passanger panel control off and put it on the driver side and it worked...the other dude is right 200-300 at a dealer. I saw one on ebay for 110.00 so im gonna go that route.

SOURCE: Power door locks and driver side power window not working

The solution to this issue was recently discovered during our most recent trip to the shop. We told them not to leave the window down when they changed the battery... BUT DID THEY LISTEN...NOOOO.

So quite by accident I was finally able to correct and then test fail the system and test and fix again...

Here you go.;
1. disconnect the battery and connect both the positive and negative cables together(after disconnected))
2. disconnect the window and lock controller in the driver's side door.
3. Leave cables connected for at least 5 minutes
4. Re-connect door window controller and locks wiring harness
5. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
6. Connect Battery starting with the negative cable(ensuring not to connect then disconnect, (one swift motion)
7. open drivers side door and turn key to the off position(do not remove)
8. You should hear a series of dings
9 Once dings are heard remove the key from the ignition and you should hear the door lock solenoids activate..
10. Congrats.. Your done and the windows and locks work.

My mini 8 has all lights flashing. Put in the right batteries but the flights are still on and the flim keeps spitting out....

Hi! Please try this out:
1. Leave the mini 8's lens open.
2. Then try to put on the batteries again. (with the lens open.)
3. If it doesn't work, then try it again.

*It's important to see first if your battery is not defective or it is not leaking, and it is recommended to use high-quality batteries like Duracell.


Hope this will help. :)

Hello, i have a 1996 jeep cherokee, my battery is overheating and my gauges are lit up like a christmas tree, i changed my alternator and my gauge reads 19, help please. Jeremy

Problem is that the regulator isn't inside the alternator any is in the computer (all one unit) Quite likely it is full on and yes, that will "cook" your battery pretty quick!

Now what? Changed alternator but car still won't start.

a dropped/disconected starter solenoid cable is a good candidate, a heavy cable runs from the battery to the starter, a lighter cable runs from the ignition to the starter solenoid, the ignition key throws the solenoid which engages the starter pinion gear in the flywheel, and connects the cable to spin the starter motor. even loose may not be producing enoug current to fully engage the starter.
there is a fusible link in the battery cable that is a good candidate.
if the battery were disconnected during alternator changeover, look for loose cables at the battery posts, and corrosion on the posts.
if the battery was not disconnected look for collapsed positive plates on one or more cells of the battery..
