Usually caused by failed alternator. Remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts store.

1996ford mustang v-6 5speed if headlight switch pull out is bad will it cause battery to discharge?


As long as the lights do not stay on, a broken switch should not drain the battery. Why don't you pull the fuse on the headlights and taillights?

Truck is draining charge and not charging battiers


I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start.
End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

Battery on a 2005 Mustang went dead. Had a Jump to get the car started. Drove & speedometer & odometer worked fine. However, I had Triple AAA install a new battery & now they don't work. ...


Did AAA clean the battery cable connections when they installed your battery? Did you check the fuse for the insrument panel?

It could be just bad timing or a coincidense but I am more likely to think things are connected. If your gauges worked after jump starting your car, but not after AAA changed the battery, something changed or was left disconnected.
