Have the battery charged and tested. GM alternators tend to take the battery with them when they die. A weak battery will make all the electronic stuff act strange. Make sure all the cables and connections are solid.

If the security lights stays on. Do a reset. ten minutes on, thirty seconds off, try to start. A relearn is three times this, try to start after the third time. Have a battery charger on it.

WHEN THE BATTERY LITE COMES ON THE DASH IT IS TELLING YOU THE VOLTAGE FROM THE ALTERNATOR IS WORKING, TO CHECK THE ALTERNATOR WITH A VOLT METER ON DC WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING YOU SHOULD GET A READING OF 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLT WHEN YOU TEST THE BATTERY TERMINALS IF THE VOLTAGE IS LOWER THEN 13.5 VO0LTS YOU ALTERNATOR IS BAD

Hi, my battery went flat on my car so i replaced it like you would, but then the new battery went flat within 3 days. i have check that their nothing left on in car what could drain the battery. can you...


There is something on ... batteries do die naturally ... about 1 to 2% a month if left alone, but not in three days. Put a volt meter between the + cable and the + post (remove the cable). Observe the amp draw. Remove the fuses one at a time until the reading toes to zero.

If no change ... consider the alternator ... umplug it from the circuit. You could have a fault in the diode bridge.

Could be a bad battery and alternator, the alternator should still be covered. But the battery will need to be replaced, and make sure there are no short in the electrical system.

I have a 2001 saturn l300 v6 and I am going through fuel pumps every 3 - 4 months I have went to car qwuest and bought a delphi and then another brand from them after it went out I finnally took it to gm...


you never said whether or not you changed fuel filter with each pump,you need to do this because a burnt up pump will load the filter with black partials.Also there is a part called the sock,it is a nylon material that looks like a sock the catches things before they hit the pump,it should have been replaced too.as for why,I think maybe this time someone should be looking in side the tank for rust or any other foreign things that could harm the pump.

Same exact problem


Okay it could be one of 2 things. A) you are leaving something on in the car such as lights or leaving a door open a little. B) you have a bad alternator. To check it once you have a complete charged battery, start the car. Let it run fora few mins. while the car is running disconnect the battery. (this is completely safe) If the car turns off you have a bad alternator. Please let me know the outcome.
