How old is the battery? If it is the original, it most likely needs a battery.

I had to replace the battery in my 08 mustang three months ago and after a few weeks is died. Took the car battery to Auto Zone and was told that the new battery was not good. Now this morning my ca


I suspect either a bad voltage regulator (should show up on the alternator test) or something is draining the battery when off. Draining a battery below 12V can cause un-repairable damage to a battery although if only a few weeks old you might try to recondition it with a reconditioning charger.

Battery drain


I would first guess the alternator, have it checked for how much power it is putting out with a meter. If it has to be replaced, it is pretty simple to do so and a cheap one can be bought from a nearby salvage yard. Check out www.car-parts.com for the nearest location of a yard that would have your alternator

if you have any further questions, let me know

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

Got a low votage msg couple of weeks ago and replaced the battery. Got the same msg a few weeks later; went away for a couple of days and when I came back car would not start. Took it to Pep Boys to run...


If the battery is not recharging while the car is running, bad connection between alternator and battery. If it is dying while sitting, but charging while running, something is draining it. What? Who knows. It could be anything from a clock on the radio to an engine fan that doesn't stop. Look for anything electrical that is on when the car isn't. ANYTHING. Even the smallest light can pull more juice than you'd expect. Good luck.

Battery dying


It is the alternator then. Dont take it to the dealer though because im sure they are charging you a pretty penny just to tell you there is nothing wrong. With a car this new I would not think this but there may be a short somewhere that is draining the battery but HIGHLY doubt it. Take the alternator out and take it to Schucks and have them test it.

Something electrical is draining battery on 1987 XJ6;


Have you checked the alternator? The alternator may not be charging the battery. With engine running, check the voltage at the battery (it should be ~14V). If it's less than that, your battery won't charge properly. You can take your alternator to auto store to have it load tested also to be sure. Sometime alternator issues don't show up until it gets hot. Defective alternators have also been known to drain the battery after the car has stopped.
