Question about Cars & Trucks
Batteries second new one
When you say no power does that mean vehicle runs but can't turn any of the accessories on? Or does that mean the vehicle was dead, couldn't jump it (or tired of jumping it) you replaced battery and it still wont turn over. Batt sits at about 12.5vdc and with vehicle running it should read 14+ right off the battery.If it starts the engine for about a week or so then it sounds like you have a trickle voltage to ground somewhere. Fog lights and sound systems are known for this. OR your alternator just isn't replacing what is demanded from the battery. Most Auto part stores offer an aternator/ batt check for free. Hard to say without any feedback from you (just a little on the vague side) I can tell you Iv'e had all these nightmares and more. but the lower fog lights staying on, due to one side shorting to ground about killed me. Another Iv'e had the pleasure of knowing is Batt cables ground( -black) is the worst and coming ina close second is the pos + red ether bad corrosion you can see or corrosion you cant see (somewhere under the rubber coating) or just a plain loose connection. then coming last and not my favorite is a big fat wire from a sound amp or speakers that is touching metal somewhere. One by one in the last 44years Iv'e had to hunt down and eliminate. Hopefully I have covered at least one of your issues~~~kinda hard when you just sit there and stare~~ good luck my powerless friend~~~~~~SC
