First when you get out at night and close the door do the inside lights go off. If not owners manule . But it sounds to me you have a battery out ( shorted cell) replacde the battery asap and have alt. Checked again ...

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.

As a simple preliminary test, try disconnecting the battery before you let the car stand for a while and see if it will start when reconnected. (If this will not affect radio codes and alarm systems). This will give you an idea if it is the battery or something in the car that is draining the battery.

Sounds like good answers...most likely the battery has a bad cell...you can get a free test at most parts stores...(Take your jumper cables with you, so you won't be stranded...Hope this helps.

Agreed, you can do one of two things. Replace the alternator, or get some new brushes and try out your soldering skills. Good luck.

Hello, I have a 2008 Lexus RX350. I was sick and did not drive my car for a month. Battery was dead, jump started few time to drive. The last time I jump started it came up with the VSC light, engine


Hi
first I hope that you are well now
did you replaced the battery?
if yes, do this procedure and your car will be drivable.
switch ignition ON then OFF 10 times writhing10 seconds ( in total)
then switch ignition ON and leave it for 1 minute then you start the engine.
if you did not replace the battery yet, better you change it first

Dodge Journey windows going down by themselves


I have heard of this in fact, In a 2009 Journey R/T. A trip back to your dealer is in fact the best action. The one I know of had multiple electrical issues after the initial window concern within a few months. ie. wipers, signals, radio, heater not working.
