Yes, and no... at this point you haven't done any testing so anything electrical is suspect. First, you need to check obvious items such as glovebox light etc to make sure they aren't staying on...Then you need to remove one battery terminal and put an ammeter between the terminal and wire. Start pulling fuses one by one till draw shown on ammeter drops. Check to see what system that fuse serves and you can begin narrowing down the problem. If after removing all fuses the draw remains it's likely that there is an internal bleed off in the alternator. sometimes a bad diode or regulator can do that. I would first have the charging system and the new battery checked ...there are defective batteries, not often as there once were, but it can happen.

I have 91 Previa and about a week ago I was at a stoplight and the battery light flickered on and then my van lost power and died. I bought a new battery and all seemed well until 2 days later when


Hi

Yes it sounds like the alternator voltage regulator is wearing down and needs to be changed or replaced.

If you can get your hands on a 12 volt multimeter, turn the setting to 20 dc and place the negative wire on the negative battery post and the positive wire on the positive battery post.


The battery with motor off should be 12.6 volts and higher, start the the car the read out should be 14.,2 or higher.


You can turn the lights and heater on to see if the alternator can cope with the load.


if read out is less then you need to change or replace it.

Cheers

I had just replaced my starter a couple days ago on my 96 grand jeep cheroke v8, but even before i did i started getting this check battery on the little screen and the check guages light would come on. ...


If the battery voltage gauge goes to zero, it may be a bad connection at the battery.
Batteries generally last an average of only 3 years, but they will go bad gradually until the voltage drop on starting will drop below levels that the car can run the starter.

Try a new battery, they're not too expensive at Walmart or Sears or a local auto parts store.
Try the largest CCA capacity battery you can buy and you won't have regrets, in my experience.

Good luck on this repair.

ENGINE REBUILD WARRANTY???


Sorry, most warranties only cover original repair and no warranty repairs after that. In other words warranty doesn't get a new start date. This is not what you want to hear but as I am in the industry that is the usual wayit operates... Unless you can talk them into extending another year or two....

91 Accord LX 2 dr 4 cyl just put new battery with 5oo cold cranking amps-NO Start! Owner said car has had perpetual problems holding a charge and starting! About 3mo ago Owner charged the old Die hard...


If you manage to get it started, check the alternator output...I'm betting it is bad. Should be making no less than 12.5 with accessories all on, 13.5 to 14 with just engine running. Bad alt can drain battery even when off depending what failed inside it. Towing with a chain is not really a good idea. the cross pin in those differentials are not very good and can fail.

My blower only works on setting 123 + air con not that cold


You have a resistor array assembly going out. What you described is typical of the first resistor going out and over loading the second, which goes out and overloads the third. Replace the HVAC resistor array. Don't buy a used one. Spend the extra money on the new OEM dealer item. Good luck to you.
