Battery drain


I would first guess the alternator, have it checked for how much power it is putting out with a meter. If it has to be replaced, it is pretty simple to do so and a cheap one can be bought from a nearby salvage yard. Check out www.car-parts.com for the nearest location of a yard that would have your alternator

if you have any further questions, let me know

2002 Grand Caravan Sport, new starter, new battery, battery light came on ans has stayed on since about a week ago. Last night, in a food drive-thru, light, wipers, things went crazy for a second, felt...


Sorry to say this , but its the ECM computer. Altenator runs threw this and it is dieing or dead.You can get one at a junk yard . you will have to pull yours first. there are numbers on them that have to be matched up. junk yard should be able to help you on this. It will still need flashed/reprogrammed. Some auto stores can do this at a fraction of the cost of the dealer. call around.

When we turn key car is dead. Car has been sitting for 2 months.


replace your battery, a battery discharges every day you dont run the alt. to charge it up... after a week or 2 weeks the battery would be dead, just from a car sitting not being started... if you are not using the vehicle, it is a good thing to replace the battery, and every couple days just start the car up and let it run a while to charge the battery.... if you are going to have to leave the car for a while without starting it, then disconnect the battery, and remove it from the vehicle... you can buy a cheap trickel charger for the battery when it is out that will keep it charged till you decide to put it back in.... hope this helps you...

98 Olds 88 starting problem


Update--after getting car back from 3rd shop, it ran flawlessly for about a week or ten days. Then started doing it again. I decided to do some more troubleshooting myself. While trying to track down the components of the fuel pump electrical circuit, I did quite a bit of wire wiggling at the firewall and inside behind the glove box (the location of the fuel pump relay on this car). I had a buddy turn key to "on" while listening for the fuel pump relay to click. When he did, the fuel pump ran 2-3 seconds just like its supposed to. The car started right up, and has ran since---two weeks now. My problem definitely now looks like a short in the wiring somewhere in the fuel pump circuitry. Next time it does it, I'll try to further narrow down the area of the problem. I found this one basically by accident.

If the car sits for > week, car won't start.


The car does not have an alarm system but does have a remote start system installed by a certified dealer.
