Sounds like a draw...did you do a circuit test one at a time to narrow down your issue?

I believe it is your factory anti-theft system. check your owners manual for how to disengage same.

SOURCE: New alternator and battery battery light stays on and car dies

Have you checked the alternator fuse? The regulator needs power from the fuse to turn on the alternator. The old alternator could have blown the fuse.

There is a knob beside the headlights under the hood, fairly good sized, looks like rubber and you can manually turn down your headlights. That happened to my 86 Supra last year and the sync was just off and once I turned them down they started working perfectly. Hope this helps

I have a 1990 Volvo 240 recently the car started to die at random times while driving. When it dies all the dash lights come on can't start it for a bit afterwards. I replaced the battery and it seemed...


  • This is classic of your alternator going bad. Sometimes, when it first begins to go bad it will function on and off. Soon it just stops charging the battery all together. The battery has one function and that is to start the car. Then the alternator is ran by the belt and charges the battery and in effect runs the car. The reason for the lights coming on is the power fail in the car.
  • Buying a new battery worked for a short time because the fresh battery ran the car but with no alternator to charge the battery the car soon died again.
  • The fix is to replace the alternator. Do it soon or even that new battery will go bad from being drained so much.

regards, Tony

Sounds like you have a bad alternator, or something drainging your battery, take it to Pep Boys or Autozone, they can do a load test to check the alternator.

Hi l have 1989 toyota supra turbo but this car have 1 problems l drve this car to go work every day but when l park the car dosn wana star again l put new batery end l have that same problem


The first thing you need to look for is a light that isn't shutting off. Could be your interior light, a trunk light, glove box, tail light etc. If no lights, could be your starter solenoid is not shutting off. Try disconnecting the battery while you are at work, and see if it starts after. ( if you can't find any lights that stay on)

Battery dies after a day or two of no use


Sounds like you have a power drain, have you installed any new electrical items recently, lift off your Neg batt connection, as you touch it back, is there a spark, if so,this shows a power drain somewhere. Does your battery go flat when car left to stand, or does it go flat regardless of if you run the engine?
