Battery may no longer able to hold a charge, maybe EOL ( end of life), try using a new battery.


Hope this was helpful

How do I find a electrical short changed the battery and still goes dead


When does it go dead ? Over night , while driving ? Two different diagnostic's ! If it goes dead while driving the alternator is not charging the battery . If it goes dead over night there is a parasitic drain on the battery , something is on , using current . You don't say what make , model and year vehicle but most all vehicles from the mid 80's on have a number of control modules (computers ) . They power down after a set amount of time , an sometimes they don't power down . There are videos on youtube showing how to find a key off power drain .

A licking noise starts when the car stops in the front dash then the battery goes dead by the next morning even with new batteries


licking? my guess, clicking?
this question could get lots of banned answers, watch out.
car stated is this a World war 2 jeep (willis?)'
no year,?
no country.? they sell them and make them outside usa,

the car for sure needs service, the only thing active is head lamps
key off, (and horn and alarm)
1: does the car drive? ok.
2: do the head lights work and glow bright.
3: when you do drive is the CEL lamp in the dash glowing (check engine light)
any way its an electrical failure. if car drives ok...
my guess, HVAC controls messed up.
or a damaged Ignition key switch.

Battery goes dead overnight and clicking noise behind dash when moving acc. fuse


Chances are you have a short behind the dash. The clicking might be wires arching off metal or other wires. may have been pulled from a harness or maybe a mouse chewed on it. Unfortunatly, open the dash and look.

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

Problems starting my van. new battery but one quiet click and it all goes dead


When the van was parked, was it in an area where mice or other rodents could get to it? If so, check for chewed wires near top of engine compartment and under van near starter.

My battery is dead and when i open the door i hear a clicking sound in the dash and noise coming out of seatbelt. i charged the battery then it goes dead in a hour and clicking noise comes back


the first thing to check is your battery cables to see if there is any corrosion on them. then i would have the alternator tested to see if it is bad, that will kill the battery as quick as just a few minutes. also have your battery tested to make sure there is not a bad cell in it.

Battery goes dead often. Must jump or charge almost everyday


perhaps your problem is not so complicated. maybe one of your vanity mirror lights arent shutting off or something. go out in your car at night and look for light after your dome light shuts off.
