Is your battery secured were it can't shift around? If yes, replace your cable ends.

2007 Tahoe loeses all power than halfhour later comes back this has happen 3 times. jumping it does not help. new battery no help


First ,check positive/negative battery cable terminals at the battery for corrosion, make sure cable connection is tight and clean. Check positive connection at starter for loose or corrsion. Negative bolts to front of engine on right side, make sure its tight, no damage, no corrsion. Electrical senter located on left fender. Use a circuit test light clipped to neagtive and probe for 12v on the buss-bar located center of fuse panel ( large red wire on back feeds this connection. I suspect your loosing circuit at starter, but thats just my first thought if you've already have eleminated the battery posts.

Car starts fine then starts to slowly die will not start untill completly cooled off 2004 kia


Nuts, bolts, and other connections are susceptible to coming loose due to severe vibration from the road and engine vibration. Check to make sure the positive & negative battery cables are tight. Next, follow the black negative cable to the chassis (or engine block) and ascertain that end is tight. Next, follow the red positive cable to the relay end, then to the starter motor to ascertain those connections are tight. As you're following the cables, check for corrosion.
When nuts/ bolt connections to electrical power are loose, less electrons can pass. Corroded cables have the same effect. Corrosion acts as a resistor, much like taking a garden hose, then bending and creating a choke point where less water can pass, decreasing water pressure on the outlet end of the hose. Loose electrical connections also simulate resistors. So you can imagine a circuit is like a garden hose. The electrons is water, and your headlights, tail lights, stereo radio, and other electrical accessories are the water valve. When you run your headlights, air conditioning, wiper blades, etc... you increase the power demand and the flow of electrons, much like you had increased the garden hose water pressure by opening the water valve wider.

Have changed out the Alternator and battery with new ones. Battery will still not stay charged. Thought it may be a Voltage Regulator issue is that the only other thing it could be?

OR YOU HAVE FAULTY ALTERNATOR.

Battery symbol came on and stays on.


You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10min but if it returns, have the charging system checked. A battery light could be an indication of a loose/bad connection (corrosion on calbes/terminals) or an alternator problem. Since you've ruled out a serpentine belt issue (unless is slick/worn and not grabbling) I'm sure it's one of the above. Best of luck with your problem.

A month ago I bought A used 2000 elantra it used to start fpr the first try In the same time I changed the engine oil and Trying to put a good battery when I finished it did not start.


Verify (test) the battery is good/charged. Verify good, clean cable connections (positive & negative, correct polarity). Inspect positive and negative cables for loosness (positive cable condition to starter connection - clean/tight) negative cable condition to ground connection clean/tight). Replace/repair/clean/tighten cable(s) as needed. Did you remove/disconnect any components from the engine when you replaced the battery? If so, did you remember to put/reconnect them back?
