New battery keeps going dead no low voltage light


Have the vehicle taken to one of many places that will test the Alternator output etc--narrow it down first without replacing that.

Voltage may drop enough to prevent starting without triggering the low voltage issue.

CHECK BATTERY CABLES MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT CORRODED AND LOOSE.ALSO CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE.SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS IF NOT REPLACED BATTERY.BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE TURN OF RADIO FIRST.AFTER INSTALLING NEW BATTERY.WITH ENGINE RUNNING CHECK ALTERNATOR OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.DOING THIS WILL MAY SURE BATTERY GETTING GOOD CHARGE.2 REASON BATTERIES STOP WORKING.THEY FAIL FROM OLD AGE AND ALTERNATOR CHARGING SYSTEM NOT WORKING.IF BATTERY CABLES VERY OLD I WOULD REPLACE THEM.THAT WILL HELP BATTERY GET BETTER CHARGE.OLD BATTERY CABLES PUT A RESISTANCE ON CHARGING CIRCUIT CAUSE ALTERNATOR WORK HARDER TO KEEP BATTERY CHARGED WHICH WILL SHORTEN THE ALTERNATOR LIFE.

My battery light came on dash of ford transit connect,lights slowly dimmed dash lights slowly dimmed then van stopped.jump started to get home.battery is original 9yrs old do i need a new one?


first check connections on battery and alternator make sure tight clean and there is no damage or breaks also check belt is tight and not slipping or damaged the battery light can mean battery not charging or alternator not putting out a charge if a boost got u home i would lean towards alternator problem [have tested though as well as battery most auto stores usually offer this service for free ]

I have an 88 jeep comanche that has a new battery and new alternator but wont keep charge. What could be the problem and how do I fix this.


IF YOU CHECK FUSE.BATTERY CABLES COULD BE FAULTY IF VERY OLD.THEY CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE IN CHARGING CIRCUIT.CHECK FOR LOOSE DRIVE BELT.AND CHECK ALTERNATOR WIRING IF BROKEN OR DAMAGE YOU WONT GET CHARGED.AND MOST OF ALL MAKE SURE YOU BOUGHT THE RIGHT AMP ALTERNATOR.

I have 1989 toyota tercel.The alternator will run the car's electrical system but will not charge the battery.I have a new battery and alternator.what the problem?


Check the charging rate of the car's electrical system....it should read at idling 14volts.If its not or is just reading 12volts or low means the alternator is not charging, Replace the alternator and get the old battery charged or if its more thn 17months old replace it.
Hope this helps!

Charging problem.. Wont charge battery


The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Nope, but they are usually near the battery, solenoid or starter (where main service wires are)
