Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
1998 chevy lumina car, 3.1
This car had been sitting idle for about 8 months and when I tried to start it the battery was dead. So I jumped it off and let it run for awhile and in the meantime was checking all of my bulbs on the car. I noticed that both low beam lights were burnt out. Well it turns out the battery was bad so I replace it and the car started just fine. The next morning when I go out to start it, it is dead. So I go ahead and replace the low beam headlights and then proceed to jumpstart the vehicle. The car starts just fine and the low beam lights are working, until I take off the jumper cables and they go out so I put the cable back on, but the lights do not come back on. So I went ahead and unhooked the cables and let the car continue to idle while I checked the low beam lights and sure enough they were both blowed out. I let the car idle for about 10 minutes and turned it off and it started right back up, but after about 5 hours the battery was dead again. Thanks, Lionel
Check your alternator to make sure it is putting sufficient charge to charge the battery. he proper thest would be to take it to a parts store and have them tell you the voltage. a get by test would be to start the carnd disconnect the battery and see how long the car runs. IF it dies then your alternator is bad.
