Best solution replace it with a new one
They can do the load test

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.

9 times out of 10 it is the factory amplifier. I had this same problem and it was the amplifier. Disconnect the amp located in the trunk by the speakers and see if the drain continues. You will not have music, but having the amp replaced with an aftermarket one will solve this problem,

Hello allyssiandra.
The green wire leading to the alternator is grounded by the computer to complete the field circuit.
The dark green/orange wire is power supply to the field circuit fed by the auto shutdown relay.
The large output wire out of the stator in the alternator should have battery voltage on it at all times. Test to verify this power at the alternator terminal. There is a fusible link in this feed wire that could have went open circuit.
To test the system manually ground the green wire with the engine running. This is called a full field test. This will put the alternator in full output. If it doesn't, apply positive battery power to the dark green/orange wire with the engine running. This bypasses the auto shut down relay.
Hook up wires at the alternator before starting the engine for safety sake.
Do this much and report back here to me and I will help with the next step in repair.

SOURCE: alternator isn't charging the battery,

Taking in all you said here, The alternator is bad. The alternator should be tested when is hot. 95% of the time-- when an alternator is checked cold, it wiil pass as good. CHANGE your alt. it will take care of your problem.

07 pontiac Grand Prix won't start even with a jump. An says charging system fail on message center.


It takes a lot of time to charge a really dead battery. When you try and start the car with a dead battery installed there is a large voltage drop across your jumper cables so you must achieve a reasonable amount of charge on the battery before you can turn over the engine even with the jumper helping. If you are losing charge on your battery in a short period of time you may have a failed voltage regulator, a bad battery, a bad alternator (should be putting out 14 volts DC or so) or bad connections. You could replace the battery (with a charged one) as a test to determine that the car will start. If it starts OK than read the voltage on the battery terminals while the car is running to check the alternator and regulator.

Is my battery bad?


If the battery tests good, and your charging system is working correctly, you may have something using power in the car when everything should be turned off. It could be a short in the wiring, a bad relay, or other component.
If you disconnect the battery and it does not loose power overnight, look for a power drain.

Battery dopes not hold a charge


How old is the battery? Does the car sit for long periods of time? Or is it an old battery with the vehicle driven only short trips? If thebattery has died many times and you have charged it. It more than likely has a dead cell. The issue with this is it will still read 12v when connected to a battery charger making you think the battery is good. Walmart will test for free, plus they have cheap batteries.

Battery lost charge


firstly check that there are no lights left on including the boot light. next have a load test done on the battery to determine if there is a dead cell. Cells collapse over a very short period of time especially if the battery is over 2 years old

Battery goes dead instantly


TAKE BATTERY TO AUTO PARTS STORE FOR A LOAD TEST PROCEDURE, MAKE SURE THE CASE IT IS PUT IN HAS THE DOOR CLOSED FOR YOUR SAFETY, BATTERIES SOMETIMES DO "EXPLODE" AND ACID FLYING IS NOT GOOD. IF BATTERY IS NOT GOOD, I WILL SUGGEST YOUR BUY AN AMPHOROUS SOLAR POWERED BATTERY CHARGING PANEL, THEY COST BOUT 30 BUCKS AND WILL KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED UP OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME.

The battery wont hold a charge. the battery is completly dead after a very short period of time


Does the battery go dead while sitting or while driving? You may have a draw problem where something is draining the battery while parked, or you may have a charging problem, or you may have a bad battery, depending on how it goes dead.

What are possible causes for battery drains when parked for extended periods?


Most cars now have many modules that incorporate "memory" systems that require a constant low voltage supply, including your radio. Most batteries will hold enough charge to last a month without going completely dead. Not sure what you consider "extended period".
If storing for more than a month, you could either put a 2 amp "battery tender" on it or disconnect the battery (but you need to know how to re-arm the security system so when re-connected it will start).

If the battery is going dead in a short time (two weeks or less) have the battery load tested after getting it fully charged. It may be good enough for day to day use but if it's not in really good condition it will get low quickly.
If you have a drain that's unusual, that will require going through the entire electrical system fuse by fuse 'till you find the drain source. At this point it can be so many things that commenting is foolish as testing is the only way to verify anything.

Turn the key on, nothing happen, no ligths inside nothing


1) Battery cables disconnected 2) Battery dead, probably shorted. Any other electrical problem, would leave some systems alive. A run down battery that wont turn over the engine, will still be able to power dome lights, or other accesories.
