SOURCE: Resolving battery dying out and discharge light dosen't come on?

Discharge light will actually only come on when the alternator is not putting out its normal 13.5 - 14.5 volts. Sounds to me your alternator is fine, your battery has some dead cells, and will go dead soon as you shut off your engine. Battery is not accepting the charge the alt. is giving it. New battery is needed.

Can the car alarm kill your battery but you can start the car but after you turn it off battey died again


sure, if you let the alarm drain the battery, this can destroy any stock battery.
The car batteries are not like golf carts and are not deep discharge rated. (so can be damaged)
so charge the battery, if it wont hold a charge, it is bad.
if it discharges silently, and darkly parked , that is phantom discharge
if is discharges , driving that is a engine charge system failure.
parked over night discharging is phantom discharging.
if the alarm goes off and stays in alarm , then dont use, it.
if the battery is happy with the alarm defeated then the Alarm is bad.

The battery measure 12.6vdc charged,(rested) "voltmeter"
and running measures, 13.3 to 15vdc at idle.

Battery keeps dying


To run the battery down over night, points to a pretty good drain. At least a light left on, it should be easy to determine if that is the cause. Don't forget the light under the hood, in the glove box, and in the trunk.

Another problem may be a good battery, getting poor recharging. The battery may start the car fine in fully charged condition, but if the alternator is not putting out the proper voltage and amps, it will not only not recharge, driving the car will continue to discharge the battery. This often is not noticed, until you turn off the car, and cannot restart due to a low battery condition.

Do not overlook the battery cables. Often they look fine, but if there is a small amount of corrosion between the positive battery cables connection at the battery, that will create a poor connection for starting, as well as a poor connection for the alternator to resupply the battery with electrical power. Remove and clean to bright metal ALL battery cables and clean ALL of the ends. Be sure to also clean the battery terminals to bright metal condition, and be sure to clean, or replace, the battery terminal bolts.You may also want to take it to autozone they will put it on a diagnostic scanner for free and that may also help you narrow down your problem.

Kia sedona 2003 fan belt breaks later changed but d battery keeps dying off over night mostly when d ac is used


Sound like you have a battery problem to me. Try a known battery which keeps its charge, maybe borrow a battery from someone, and you`ll see then whether your battery is at fault or not. Might save you some money, by trying that first.
All batteries have a life, up to 5 years old maximum, they are not made to last forever.

Good luck, hope my advice helps you.

The gen. pulley wont turn truck turns off when idling


You mean the alternator pulley won't rotate?

If so, the battery is dying because there's no alternator to keep it charged up, so there's no electricity to keep the computer and spark plugs working, and the engine then dies.

An alternator pulley that won't rotate means the bearings inside the alternator have frozen up solid.

The only fix is a new alternator, and probably a new belt. You might need a new battery too, if the battery has been discharged too much and damaged.

Battery keeps dieing..jump start and runs for a few days and dies


Humm ...Didn't die before the accident? now dies? BMW has good mechanics,but could not find any problem???. I gota think that it is related to the rear ending,but how? I would look for loose connections, Battery Ground that might have been removed before welding.Battery terminals, Any primary connections that may not be making 100% contact . It's worth a try.Good Luck

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the


The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.

Truck dies but engine keeps running. battery or alternator?


You need an alternator....well unless your belt came off or got very loose. The truck continued to drive because the battery had enough juice left to run the ignition system, but after you shut it off there was no where near enough to turn the engine over or possibly even run the starter. The battery will have to be charged and a new alternator installed.
Hope this helps.
