You have a bad electrical short somewhere, draining the battery.other than that make sure the ground from the battery to the engine block is good

Has new battery and alternater but next day the battery dead


The battery and or alternator maybe defective, even new parts can be defective, look into getting the alternator and battery checked, if they are good, than you have some other electrical problem, maybe parasitic draw.

Is your serpentine belt in good condition? If not, replace it. You'll need a volt meter to check out how much the alternator is charging. Attach it to the negative & positive terminals of the battery & start car. It should read 13.2 to 14.6 volts. If it does not, you have either grounded a positive wire somewhere or your new alternator is not working. Have it tested at the automotive shop you bought it at. Good luck, I hope this helps!

Check the function of the alternator. Charge the battery with a battery charger or jump start the engine. While the engine is running use a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery posts. Red to + and black to -. You should have between 13.5 − 16 volts. If you do not the alternator is bad or the drive belt is loose. If the alternator checks ok then something is on that is drawing power from the battery and running it down. Check under hood, trunk, glove box, and interior lights. Can also be a brake light switch causing the brake lights to stay on. In rare cases it can also be a stuck relay such as a power window relay. From you description I think you will find the alternator is ok and your problem is something is on and running the battery down.

Battery & brake light came on at same time. new battery & rebuilt alternater 2 yrs ago.


check the charging rate the alternator is producing, if the performance is insufficient, it can cause other warning lights to come on as the system does not have sufficient power to run their self diagnostics within their operating parameters.

The alternater keeps going out. We have replaced


sometimes you are just the unlucky soul that gets bum alternators or your battery in the truck has enough juce to crank it over but is almost dead and your alternator is burning up trying to charge a battery that wont accept a decent charge. plus clean the battery terminals
