Drive over to Autozone or Oreillys and have them check the charging system while it is running. You also need to check for the "draw" of power used by the car. They may not have the gauges for that portion of the test.
One item that is silent and draws a lot of power is the rear window defroster. I don't know offhand if it is a dedicated fuse or if there are several items on the same fuse. You could try pulling the fuse for the rear window defroster.
Your air suspension can draw lots of power if the air compressor keeps running.

If you are running down a fully charged battery and all the power of an alternator, something is either glowing, or a fusible link is blown and the charge is not getting to the battery.

Battery icon displays at times but lights stay bright and nothing seem wrong.


this could be just a loose or worn alternator belt, also could be alternator brushes about to fail, with a multi meter start engine and set meter to 20v DC and put relevant prongs to correct battery terminals it should read about 13v to 14v, 12v up over is ok but should be above 13 on tick over and not much or at all higher than 14v, keep meter on battery and rev engine to make sure the charge rate doesnt fall below 12/13volts when engine under strain as this will effect battery current while driving etc. especially at night when using lights, this might be ok now but it will get worse so dont neglect problem as you dont want to get stuck in middle of nowhere one night when out driving, car will slowly start to lose power as it can only run on battery for approx an houre, its running on battery not alternator everytime battery icon shows whilst engine is running and over time this will also effect battery condition.

Why won't my '98 Chevy Malibu start, it just clicks??? YET, it HAS POWER!? I have a '98 Chevy Malibu. We turned it off after driving for about 5 minutes that day, came back 5 minutes later and it acted...


You know the 97 to 04 Malibu is noted for intake manifold leaking antifreeze into the engine. A little antifreeze in a cylinder can keep the piston from moving in compression stroke. Take a look at the spark plugs, see if any of them have antifreeze on them and maybe the starter will spin the crank with the plugs out.

My 97 Olds aurora cuts off while driving. It's done it 3 times in 1 week. It doesn't stall when i start it back it up. I changed my alternator recently and i bought a new battery. Any ideas?


It could be the Ignition Switch. If, when it cuts off, you notice your gages, etc go off, then you are losing ignition power. If not, then maybe I would look at the crankshaft position sensor, etc. This should through some sort of code though.

Ok. my car 97 pontiac sunfire needed a new alternator output cable. guy put a new one on but apparently messed with something else and now its not starting. said the theft light came on and that it isnt...


Tell the guy to call the dealer and ask them how to override the anti theft system or reset it. when you disconnect the battery and lose power it kicks on the anti theft device and it won't get fire.
