SOURCE: Hi, I keep losing power

First check the gas cap for venting. Toyo are known to create a vaccum on the gas tank. Second, has the gas filter been changed. 3rd, Check the timing gear on the crank shaft. the key slot tends to wear throwing the timing out. If there is any play in the crank shaft pulley it is a good sign. Good Luck

Why have i lost all electrical power to my 1974 dodge tradesman van


With the battery connected, did you check the fuseable link which is the pigtail wire on the positive cable ?
If nothing works, it has to be a bad cable, bad connection, or one of the major fuseable links from the battery to the fuse box.

Car loosing power


If the battery is loosing power as you drive it,then the alternator has gone bad,this is what charges the battery,and the engine will also not run correctly if it is not charging.

LC 97 keeps losing power after about about 3 hour of


Drive over to Autozone or Oreillys and have them check the charging system while it is running. You also need to check for the "draw" of power used by the car. They may not have the gauges for that portion of the test.
One item that is silent and draws a lot of power is the rear window defroster. I don't know offhand if it is a dedicated fuse or if there are several items on the same fuse. You could try pulling the fuse for the rear window defroster.
Your air suspension can draw lots of power if the air compressor keeps running.

If you are running down a fully charged battery and all the power of an alternator, something is either glowing, or a fusible link is blown and the charge is not getting to the battery.
