You have a drain somewhere in the truck or a bad battery. Take the battery to an autoparts store and have them test it for free. If the battery is good, you have a drain. Make sure you aren't leaving anything plugged in to the power outlets. Most GM outlet are constant and will still draw power if you leave cellphone/accessories plugged in.

I have just replaced my old battery in my 1995 Chevy Lumina and now the new one seems to dicharge completely over night and sometime even sooner. What could be the problem?


if a diode is out in the alternator it will possibly charge the battery but also let it drain off overnight hence dead in morning

ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING


was the alternator bench tested? or tested on the car? if the alternator tests good off the car and the wiring has been tested, the ground may be loose or disconnected.

My brand new alternator wont stay charged


Check the charging relay if working. You can find it in the fuse box which is either in the engine compartment or under the dashboard on the drivers side legroom.

Battery won't stay charged, it is brand new battery, alternator has been checked and it is good, blown BTN 60 watt fuse, on 1994 Mazda Protege.


The 60amp fuse probably is in the circuit between the alternator and the battery. Which would be why the battery is not getting charged.
Someone would need to check for a short in the wiring between the alternator and the battery.

2004 Pontiac Montana -brand new battery, new alternator(not rebuilt). have to jump start and runs for a while then dies some times wont take charge. battery will die not running in a day. very intermi


First, you can't and shouldn't test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable while the engine is running. You run the risk of cooking the alternator and the computer. Thats how we used to test generators back in the last century.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? Is the battery charge warning light on ?
There should be a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery that could keep the alternator from charging the battery.
The ignition module would have no effect on the charging system.

Battery light staying on after brand new alternator changed out please help


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 87 plymouth sundance has a brand new battery and been through 2 new alternators. intalled the new alternators ,battery had to be jujmped off but then battery charged fine, a few months later decided to...


The power loss light goes on as a result of the alternator being bad.
Are you getting 'lifetime' guaranteed rebuilt alternators to replace the old ones?
If not, then the quality of the parts may not be good enough to run in your application.

Are the connections clean and shiny when removed?

Will not crank. Will not charge with jumper cables. just put brand new alternator on two days ago and a thermostat testerday.


Sounds like the battery should be replaced if it won't charge with jumper cables.

Once the battery is changed, the alternator should charge the new battery if all else is ok.

The thermostat probably has nothing to do with the charge problem.
