Hi Gene:
I'd suggest trying to start from the beginning with this.
Try disconnectinf the battery and charging it fully.
When you re-connect it, the "service engine light" may not be on . that would be nice. If there is a problem the light will come back on. Make sure the gas cap is screwed on tight.
The battery not holding a charge is ypically a separate problem from the service engine light.

New Battery and alternator. The Battery light comes on and flickers when car is running.

It`s not uncommon to have a faulty unit, try voltage test on battery with engine running and all the electric`s you can switch on it should be putting out 13-15 volts at the battery also check belt tension...

I have a 1995 caddy. i replaced the alternator, wires, spark plugs and gave it an oil change. I also put a brand new battery in it. i also changed the ignition cylinder. it did fine for about 30 minutes....

Even a new alternator and/or battery can be bad. You should have them load tested to verify they are working. You should also check the alt plug to make sure it is seated all the way or else it won't charge.

My car ran fine i parked it for about 3 to 4 months now it wont crank

Sounds like your battery went "south". Try jump starting it or charge battery and see if it holds a charge.

Put a new battery in it and it ran for about 2 hours than battery light came on and car died,,now with the key just turned to on it makes a clicking sound in black fuse holder on finder

Sounds like you have a charging problem. It could be your altrenator or a loose connection somewhere. Take it to a local auto mecanic that can do a charging system test.

Replaced battery 4 times


there are two things involved. Its either you didn't buy an original battery or the alternator of your car is not very active.

The alternator is suppose to charge the battery, but if the alternator is not supplying full current, it won't charge the battery very well and this will make the battery run down.

I had this problem of recent and I had to change my alternator.

But note that you cannot just change the alternator. Have your alternator tested by a re-wire to confirm if its effective or not. So this will determine whether the battery is not original or if it ran down because it was not charged fully by the alternator.

Good luck.

The battery in my 2006 Liberty keeps dying. I had a new one put installed in May 2010 and now in November 2010 the battery is dead again.

Have the system checked for more than .2 Amps draw in which case there is a short somewhere.

Also, check that the alternator is charging the battery by putting it on a starting/charging machine at Sears or Walmart or the parts store in your area (e.g. Autozone or Advance Auto Parts).

Good luck on this repair.

Volvo 240 wont hold charge

if with the volt meter the amps go down while running and at increased rpms than your alternator is not charging right

Battery not holding charge

Hi first check the alternator belt (is it it there?) if all is ok there then it could be the alternator, have a multimetre put on it it should read around 13.5 if the alternator is doing its job,
Hope this helps

My 1999 plymouth neon turns off

We had the same problem and got 2 different alternators ! Gee, found out it was not the alternator AT ALL, but the wire from the alternator TO THE BATTERY was shorting out. Check that on yours, and good luck!
