Question about Cars & Trucks
All details added above but also copied here in case if they got deleted from above:
battery goes dead overnight, could starter do it even though truck has no prob. starting after boost and or no prob. starting if battery terminals taken off overnight and in morning get hooked back up? Could alternator be prob. even though it charges battery when running could diode actually draw battery dead overnight? How do I reset emissions reader on truck so I can get NYS inspection since when it got hooked up at auto inspection shop it said battery was disconnected so was unable to read emissions? Isn\'t there an tool or handy man trick to reset emissions instead of driving truck to redo emissions brain to clear it from reading terminals were off? I got no inspection ticket recently DA refusing deal unless truck fixed by 13th could someone plz help me be able to get my truck inspected by telling me what can drain battery and how to reset emissions memory so it dont read that battery terminals were taken off? Idk yet how I am going to get it to auto shop yet for inspection with no sticker, any ideas? Truck gets plugged in what else do auto shop check for when doing inspections? I am crying so bad bc my no inspection sticker is an misdemeanor and DA was jerk when I first went to court along with judge revoked my right to have attorney etc. I am such a mess I cant risk going to jail bc of misdemeanor and I asked DA if I could sell truck instead of having to find way to get it to inspection place and he said no then he wont give me a deal. I had an inspection until the morning cop pulled me over. Truck came with inspection and he said past owner forged the sticker I asked for proof bc I know no one can forge inspection the shop always like glues it to windshield its like super glue stuck on there and he said he had no proof for me. I called lawyers and they told me to get truck inspected would help my case as I had figured such also but they said DA has to prove I had knowledge that inspection was in the truck forged so he cant prove that bc as I told him truck came with inspection. Cop wrote out to court that I told him that I knew it was forged when I NEVER TOLD HIM THAT! So then DA said last time do you refuse attorney so we can et this settled tonight I said if we settling it tonight then no I dont need an attorney I just want to know my fine price so I can begin paying on it and get this all over and done with. He said alright so we agreed we would settle that night. In return he says you know you gave up your rights to have attorney right I said yes as long as we settling right now then he said he wants me to come back and have truck inspected before I return. I said then I bring attorney bc it wasnt settled tonight as we discussed him and judge said no attorney bc you already waived that right tonight. I said hold up a minute I told him aka DA that everytime he asked bout attorney as long as we settle tonight I didnt need attorney and I had no appointed to me bc judge said he not give appointed attorney apps for traffic tickets the 1st time I went to court for all of this and I was upset and adjourned. 2nd time went to court aka last time DA said I gave up rights to attorney and adjourned it wanting me to bring inspection proof in, then turn around this is my 3rd time wasting gas to go bk for same matter its so ridiculous and I said to him specifically the last time when judge asked u have no attorney with this being misdemeanor I said no u refused me application and he turned beat red in face and neck area both and said u could of got your own app. I said nope couldnt I called legal aid they say u had to give me ap and bc he didnt give me app they wouldnt take me as client. So I realy need sum1 to plz help me. I neva been in trouble b4 to bad I not minor bc I would use my minor rights for 1st offense but now I no minor and being told no attorney allowed for me, then now everyone I ask for help with my truck are popping it to me and or they dont seem to care that i been asking for them to get my truck issues solved. I am balling my eyes out bc I have no wheres to turn too. I call tow truck to tow to their inspection shop which like one is 3 mins from my house wanted 150 and other one 20 mins from my house and wanted 550. I told them ones for 3 mins away i rather drive there before paying 150 when that prolly be needed for my fines and I need to get my truck done. So I bought new battery 1st then today alternator hoping to God alternator is good in my truck now and that was the problem. I would be so happy but then I would have to figure out how to get to inspection place and also if I need spring hanger on trujck in order to get inspected since Im told it takes long time to do spring hanger and it pain bc some bolt is super tight in there.
Have the alternator tested for low output...when running, could be producing enough volts to keep running...ie 10-11...Your recharging system requires 14 + volts to recharge properly while running...there are also times when the starter has a short, that can cause your overnight low battery too...These tests should be free at your local parts stores.

Have the computer scanned (see my tips and tricks section for a free way to do so - click my screenname and go to Tips and Tricks). There are either latent codes (codes which are set but are not tripping a check-engine light) or you have an issue with a readiness code.
Once the codes are scanned, post them here as a reply/comment and I can work with you on solving the issue.
