    Have you gotten a parasitic drain test performed on your car? it sounds like something isn't shutting off like should and its killing your battery. A parasitic drain test should confirm or rule it out.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

My 1991 f250 battery keeps dying while running


The alternator is not working. When running, a voltmeter on the battery should be at least 13.5 volts, showing the alternator is working and the battery is being recharged. You have a charging system malfunction. check the connections between the battery and alternator. Check battery ground, engine grounds, and engine to body strap ground.

Something is drawing power from the battery and draining it. All of a sudden the car will just die. What could be causing this, and is it a common problem?


alternator is prob. bad. an easy way to check it is to start the car and while its running disconect the negative battery terminal if the car dies right away its not charging at all. if it stays running then turn on the headlights ot it dies then is a weak alternator. sounds like it was going bad when you bought the new battery and didnt need a new battery. you take it it any autozone and they test the alternator in the store to what its output is.

92 oldsmobile 88 royale check engine code 55


Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor, you can get a can of cleaner specific for cleaning them for a couple bucks at the parts store. I'd just get 1 and clean the sensor see if that works. The MAF sensor is either in the throttle body itself (bolted on from the outside or in the air line between the filter and throttle body. That could be the whole problem right there. Good luck.

I have a 2001 dodge Durango 4.7 v8. The battery died and the alternator tested bad. I replaced both the battery and alternator. The new alternator within a week stopped working and I replaced it. It was...


it is the regulator that is the problem
a battery will need 14.5-14.8 volts dc to charge and a fully charged battery in good condition will read 13.2 on a multimeter
as you say the regulator is in the ecm so get a good replacement from the wreckers or junk yard or get a reconditioned ecm for those shops that can recondition/exchange

1999 Toyota Tacoma battery keeps dying


This is easy to test but you need a multimeter. Connect the multimeter to the battery and run the engine at a fast idle (say 2000 rpm). You should get a voltage reading anywhere from 14 to 15 volts if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is working. If the reading is around 12 volts, then the alternator is not working.

Hello my 2003 ford explorer has the brake light and check engine light on already. My question is my vehicle dies when i'm on the brakes or if it stays idle to long. So for the time being i put it in...


im not quite sure exactly what it is, tho i can tell you it is not the alternator, if i were you i would start by changing the fuel filter, that being parly pluged alone can kick the check engine light on and cause the vehicle to die at idle.. hope this helps, its definately the cheapest way to start.
