You need to check for draw. first, make sure nothing is staying on inside the car...interior light glove box light or brake lights. Then unplug all fuses, then probe both sides of each fuse socket with an ammeter. The circuit remaining on will show as a draw, then check each component served by that fuse. (you will get a reading for interior lights if door is open when testing that socket) Items on the side of the fuse block that are on with the key off will not give you an accurate reading unless they are manually turned off. clock in radio will show as low draw..ignore it.

You've got something grounded out somewhere in the electrical system. Fastest way to find it is to take it to an Auto Electric shop & have them run a test. Any Sears auto center will do it for you for free.

Electrical problems 1997 cavalier


First make sure the battery is fully charged. Also make sure the belt on the alternator is not broken/missing. after you charge the battery,start the vehicle and put a voltage meter/multimeter on volts dc and apply the leads to the battery posts,you should see anywhere from 13-14.5 volts from the alternator if it is working. if not,check the fuse or fuses for the alternator. if the fuse is good,replace the alternator,and test the battery.

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.

1994 Chevy Cavalier battery dies and light won't come on indicating


Bad battery! if it goes dead while just sitting. A good battery should last for weeks if not months as long as there isn't a constant drain on it.

Battery keeps going dead. We jump it and goes dead in 5 min. the gauges quit working also.


You have a bad alternator. Get the alternator checked, the alternators in 98 cavalier require at least 13 to even start the car off of battery power. The alternator is what charges your car's battery while you are driving. if you have bad alt then your jumping the car is pointless cause it won't harge your battery at all it just kick starts the engine with power from the other vechile. If the alternator is showing at the very least more than 15 when its tested time for a new one. They should run about $90-110, it's an easy do it yourself installation to. Good Luck!!!

99 subaru outback battery goes dead overnite. checks good under load test.


you may have something draining the battery a bare wire touching something, check all of the lights , trunk,hood, glove box to make sure they are all off try disconnecting a lead from the battery overnight to see if the battery still is dead in the morning, if it doesn't go dead you will have to try and find out where the problem is .....hope this helps......cheers.

My Honda Accord 1993 battery goes dead overnite. It starts with a jumper but after I drive a while and turn the ignition off, I have to jump the battery again. The battery is new and has new cables too.


sounds like you got a short somewhere in your system.look for burnt wires or malfunctioned lights. especially in the rear. tag lights are common these days
