    Once I think I may have figured out the issue, will the alternator automaticlly charge the the battery or does it need to be driven for a certain amount of time?

Check all your mini lights in the vehicles, meaning, Trunk lights and switch, interior light and switches, glove box and switch, under dash light and switch etc. check all them cause you may have a light that is not shutting off and causing the battery to drain, something as small as the glove box light can drian a battery fast over night.... also check all the grounds,ie: the battery ground, chassie ground, engine grounds, make sure they are all tight and dont move.... hope this helps you out...

There may be something that is arcing out causing the power to drain. Check your fuses and relays in your fuse boxes etc. If you cant find a fault in it anywhere I would suggest fitting an isolater switch, that way when you get out of the car of a night time you can isolate the battery then switch it back on in the morning. you could always hook up a battery charger overnight as well that may prevent a flat battery.

The only way someone could diagnose your car for certain is to have a look physically, unless they have the same sort of car and suffered an identical problem.

Yes my father recently had the same problem on our family targo.
If you go to the fuse box leave the battery connected take each fuse out one by one and test each one with a multi meter untill you find the one that has the power leakage.
if you need any more info email me at fluffy2@live.com.au hope it helps.=)

The battery warning and anti theft light comes on and the car goes dead.


Check your voltage before jumping to the conclusion of a bigger issue. Get yourself an inexpensive multimeter/voltage tester and set it to 12v d.c.
1. Check voltage of just battery. Should be around 12 to 12.5 volts if its ok
2. Turn the car on, check voltage again, it should be 13 or more volts

If #1 is not happening, charge the battery overnight.
If you have a good charge and #2 is 12v or below, your alternator is shot, or you could have a corroded ground, loose ground, or something is just not making a connection.

If your battery keeps going dead after this, something is making a connection when it shouldn't and you have a slow electrical leak. If that's the case, start reading about how to check for voltage leaks in a car.

Battery keeps going dead overnight. I've already changed the alternator which tested to be bad and still having the same problem


if you installed a new battery as well as a new alternator, it should not go dead overnight. if you have a short in the vehicle that will drain a new battery that rapidly, the cable would have been melted already. although, dome lights do have a tendency to drain batteries, but not overnight. use a multimeter to check the battery voltage while the motor is running. it should read above 13 volts DC signifying that the alternator is indeed charging the battery.

Have a 1994 blazer s10. keep replacing batteries and they go dead within few days! Where is a common short?


I'll start by saying if a battery goes dead you should be able to recharge it without having to replace it.
If it goes dead overnight something may be draining it, or the alternator may not be charging enough.
A mechanic would check alternator output and check all of the circuits for a power drain.

Battery keeps going dead. Installed new Honda battery, checked charging rate while running, 14.5 volts and battery static voltage is 12.65. After sitting for one day, car won't start, lights but no sound,...


diode pack on the alternator is most likely suspect ,alternator will charge but drains to earth when not running ,pull the big terminal lead off and see if it goes flat overnight

Good alternator & battery, but battery goes dead just sitting


The regulator could be sticking in the alternator. Unplug the alternator and see if the battery goes dead. I replaced an alternator once and the new regulator was bad.

1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Electrical problem. I AM STUMPED


It goes thru the dash circuits. Yes! add a wire from the alternator output to the plus battery . The charge lite may be inoperative - either on or off. You might want to put a fuse in that new line.
A cheap volt-ohm-meter would help you see if the alternator is charging 14-14.8 volt and the alterantor field is being energized.
