SOURCE: Battery keeps going dead. Especially

it may maybe that the alternator doesnt give out the specific amount of electricity to properly charge your battery. you may have to run some tests on the alternator itself to see if it is giving out the proper current to charge.

SOURCE: i have changed my battery 3 times and it keeps going dead

Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.

Does the fuel pump stay running at all like when you shut off the engine?

SOURCE: battery died for no reason

About the only thing you can do is disconnect the battery and connect them again after 5 minutes. If that do not work check for blown fuse. Other than that then the XM radio has been damaged by the charger.

SOURCE: battery keeps going dead. 06 ls430

With the engin not running and the key off, lift the hood and disconnect the positive lead on the battery. Then touch the lead back to positive terminal on the battery. If a spark is seen, there is something still on in the car. Could be the power mirror switch, seat heaters or even a car phone. Trial and error to find it.

Sorry I can't be more specific but that is the test.

Good luck.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

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

Tip

Battery keeps dying for no reason:



Is your Battery good or bad?
Sometimes a battery seems ok then later it seems dead. sometimes it charges and then it won't take a charge. This keeps going on and doesn't really seem like the battery is bad. This is a common problem happening to everyone at times.
Could be a dead cell in the battery, try measuring each cell in the battery. If one cell is low it will seem like a dead battery. But the battery really needs to be replaced. The debris in the bottom of the cell is intermittently shorting the cell.

Hope this helps.

My 1999 Pontiac Montana starts fine, and then sometimes dies


The starting /keep running issue is probably a slow IAC (idle air control)Next time turn the key on,wait 3 or 4 seconds then start,if it keeps running after that wait time everytime,it most likely is the IAC,,,,,,no big deal.
How long does the van sit when it has a dead battery?

Hi, my 2002 Dodge Dakota has been going dead lately and needs to be jump started. I have already replaced the battery to no avail. It usually goes dead after sitting for a few days. But the max battery...


It could very well be a defective battery, you could have 1 or more bad cells in the battery. A voltage regulator or an alternator. If it isn't one of those then there is something drawing power from somewhere that is causing it to go dead.

Car battery keeps going down


You seem to have an electrical drain on your battery from what you are saying. However the drain can be coming form you alternator. With some skills I can tell you how to check for the source of this drain, Its an old technique that I learned years ago. Get a regular test light(the one with a bulb/light in it) disconnect your negative batter lead from the negative post on the battery. Connect clip end of test light to battery pole. Touch pointed tip to battery cable(negative one) With ignition key off and out of ignition and all doors locked and ALL OTHER ACCESSORIES OFF... this test light bulb should NOT be lit. If it is there is a drain. Go to main fuse boxes and remove fuses on at a time(MAKE SURE ALL DOOR ARE LOCKED AND ALL ACCESSORIES ARE OFF when doing this procedure) As you remove a fuse if light is still on replace in the same spot and move on to next fuse until light on test light goes OUT. when it does "Bingo" that's the circuit that has a drain in it. Some accessory in that circuit is draining your battery. Locating the source should be easy the fuses are marked by what they control. Contact if you need more help. Good Luck
