Battery won't stay charged

1. the car drain's the battery even when it is not started or the key isn't in ignicion, the car has a electrical problem, you left a light, the starter could drain it, the alternator as well, or a bad radio is draining the battery even with no key in the ignicion,
2 it's a bad battery (discharges it self by beeing counicated inside).

solucion 1. to see if the car is drainin the battery would be by disconecting a battery termina and see if discharges again, if not, then the car drain's the battery.

solucion 2. if the battery discharges even when if it's disconected from the car, then change the battery.

warning, the first cause coul'd induce to a self discharging battery. even if you changed the battery, do a litle monitoring to be sure it's not the car that is turning the battery bad. how? if you install a new battery, leave the car for a few days (i mean do not start the car) and see if the battery discharges, if so, then you have to search what is draining the battery (that could be a very costly work, time and money and complicated). or put a ''battery disconector'' so the car cannot discharge the battery.

All warning lights stay on

a bad ground or a alternator going bad will cause what its doing,you need to have a shop check it though and make sure the dash isn't shorting out. good-day ! to check voltage from alternator-- with car running at battery there should be at least 14.1 volts or more at battery ( check with a voltage meter ). to check battery itself, shut offf car. hook the voltage meter to battery, turn on headlights and if the voltage drops to 10 or lower battery is bad. do the running test with all things turned off. you can also go to a auto parts store and they will test for free. auto-zone etc.

Battery is dead. It can be jumped, but won't hold the charge if you shut the car off. 2008 Chevy Impala ltz. We were on the road and stopped for a overnight stay. When we got ready to leave the next...

Battery is shot, buy a new one (possibly get some warranty credit if it is new enough). I just had a co worker ask me about the same problem today and the dealer replaced his battery in his Jeep. The new maintenance free batteries only last approximately 5 years and they don't give you a heads up like they use to in the old days. I have started cars in the morning and noticed that they start a little hard that day. The next time I try to start it, the battery is dead.

Back in the day, I think we had a little more warning because we had to crank the engines longer. With the electronic ignition and fuel injection the modern engines crank so easy, so we don't put a lot of strain on the batteries and when they go they go.

Iwent out two days ago car wouldnt start cheched by pulling spark plug wires and there was no spark. I killed the battery try to start it so I took the battery out charged it put it back and the car...

Suspect your battery won't hold a charge as it did when new. As they age, from repeated discharge & charge from normal start and stop, over time they don't charge as deeply. I think this is your problem. You can verify by charging it up, and taking car to local Autozone, Advance or any good auto parts store and have them load test your battery, that'll confirm or not. While there have them test your charging system - they do both FREE

Drivers light point across lane into ditch, not at all forward. How do you adjust

Park your vehicle on level ground (preferably) facing your garage door or an available wall. Get yourself a screwdriver (usually a phillips head) and an adjustable wrench or selection of sockets. Turn the headlights on but do not start the car if possible. If your battery is close to dead, you can start the car, but be *extremely* mindful not to touch ANY moving parts in the engine during the next steps. You have been warned.
Looking at the garage door or wall, you will be able to see how badly aligned your headlights are. Open the hood to your vehicle. Look at the top of the headlights as seen from under the hood. There will be a set of screws on each one: One that controls the X (horizontal) alignment, and one for the Y (verticle) alignment. By turning the screws, you will (slowly) move the headlight. Make adjustments to these screws until the headlight in question matches the other one.

What you want to do is go to an auto parts store and get a current tester.
You put it in line with your battery and keep removing fuses until the light goes out,then find out what components are on the circuit with the fuse.
Often times its a glove comparment lamp or trunk light.
Something that is trickle discharging .
