SOURCE: 2000 beetle battery can't hold charge

i think you should take the car to a local parts house and have them to test the charging system . If the voltage regulator has stuck it could be pulling a constant draw on your battery also check at night to make sure that none of your lights are on sometimes the light switches can go bad and cause this to happen such as hood or trunk.Hope this has helped you out some!!

SOURCE: battery wont hold charge

HI. you may have a battery drain issue that is sapping your battery overnight.

Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

Take it to Sears or another large auto parts store and have them test the condition of the battery. They do the testing for free!

I think probably not the starter, the battery is dying. The old alternator was possibly OK, but it never hurts to have a new one.

The behavior you describe is absolutely classic for a dying battery, which will not retain a charge. If you are sure for some reason that it is in fact OK, the only other answers are worn out contacts at the bottom of the solenoid, or a dead segment in the starter motor.

My car started just fine this morning. I was sitting in the parking lot for about a half hour and tried to start it again and it wouldn't start. The AAA man said it was the battery but my light did


A "light" never comes on to tell you your battery is dying. If you have the original GNB battery from DaimlerChrysler, you\'re WAY past due for replacement. 2008 Avengers, especially the 2.4L PZEV engined models are NOTORIOUS for being hard on batteries, especially if all you do is putt around town, due to both the onboard alarm system and the positive EGR pump, which runs right after you shut the car off every time, putting about a 30 amp load on your bettery without the alternator charging. Frequency battery maintenance and equalization charging is essential in the case. Also, Chrysler started using those horrid stainless steel "post straps" back in the \'90s, and those damned things will cause oxidation of the lead on the posts, due to dissimilar metals. Either way, service your battery, or replace. You\'re obviously from the south somewhere; it\'s SIT, not "set".

New battery, new alternator, still wont start


    • 1 Ensure that your battery cables are properly connected to the battery.
    • 2 Start your car.
    • 3 Let the car run for around half an hour. Most cars idle fast enough that the alternator will be able to charge a battery while sitting at idle.
    • 4 Turn off your engine and test your electrical systems. If they work properly, your battery has been charged. If they do not work, or are sporadic, turn your car back on and drive around for another half hour. After the drive, your car's battery should be sufficiently charged.

I've tried boosting my car, but my car wont start. It has been sitting in the garage for about a year. A new alternator and battery were put in about a year ago. Why isn't my car starting now?


if the battery is completely dead, it may need to be charged properly rather than boosted. if you have access to a battery charger, try that.

It sounds like the alternator is not charging. First check the belt tension, sometime the tensioners go bad and the alternator isn't spinning. If that's OK then it's time to replace the alternator
