You probably need a new battery if it doesn't hold a charge. Average lifetime of a battery is about 2 years. Look on the outside of your battery and there should be a label with a year and month punched out which will tell you when it was made. Look inside the battery to see if there is corrosion or low water. If the water is low put in distilled water, fill it not quite full but so the water is above the metal plates then charge again. If its corroded it won't charge well. If it takes a full charge then dumps it once its put back in the car you will need a new one.

SOURCE: battery keeps going dead .

When the car dies because the battery gets to low on voltage, as yours is doing, then it's one of two things. The alternator or the voltage regulator.I'm assuming you had the alternator checked. So you will have to have the regulator checked. The regulators usually are built into the alternator, some models though used to have a separate one, out side the alternator. And for a while in the 90's they put the regulator in the ECM/PCM. Hopefully yours is not there. A parts store should be able to tell you exactly where yours is. Hope this helps alittle.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.

Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

Why is my 2000 alero killing battery all the time

Perhaps your alternator is faulty or drive belt slipping or battery could be faulty.
Check battery connections and main earth strap.
Have battery tested and then check voltage goes up as you rev up to see if it's charging. (should reach 14.5v)
If there are no warning lights the battery is the prime candidate

I have a 99 ford expedition eb ive had the battery n alternator tested both reading at the right volts but the battery keeps dying.... ive made sure every thing was tight n where they should be n...

If the alternator is charging the battery, and it goes dead overnight, you have a short to ground in the wiring that is draining the battery.
You can try disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the battery stays charged when the engine is off.
If it still goes dead, the battery could have a dead cell.

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 dead

With a meter, the battery should have 12 volts at rest. With the engine running and no accessories on, the charging system should be producing 13.5 - 14.5 volts.
You could have a battery problem, a charging problem, or something draining the battery when the engine is off.

If i keep the negitive connecter on the battery it will go dead in a hour there is not a wire hooked up on the alternator but i dont know where it might go?

Even with the wire removed, are you saying it goes dead while driving or just sitting . if it goes dead wile driving then the alternator may not be charging the battery as you drive but if it goes dead while the car sits then there is a draw some where.
if you sent me the year make and model with the engine size and also let me know when it goes dead in 1 hour, while driving or car just sitting and i will help you solve the problem. good day
