Dead battery if not taken for a run every 5-6 days. Replaced battery. Didn't use car for 3 weeks and dead battery again


You have a battery drain that should be diagnosed by:

Have a parts store test your alternator diodes; if OK then
Put an amp meter between battery ground and battery neg cable to read draw with key off, then remove one fuse at a time to find which one makes draw go away. Once you know which circuit is faulty, check all items on that circuit.

Some of the usual culprits are glove box door not shutting properly and making light stay on. Light in trunk staying on. Brake lights staying on because switch is misadjusted.

Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Charging stystem seems to be working..... But when ever the miss's gets inthe car to go to work,she will get 10 miles and the battery light will start flashing,then get solid and she will lose the head...


When this happens, are the gauges dropping or not working properly or at all? Check the alternator. May not be charging so everything is running off the battery. The battery is used mostly for starting, but the alternator recharges the battery, so if after driving for a short while, and alternator not charging, everything electrical will drain the battery. You can sometimes drive the car for a while when this happens, or if the alternator goes out completely, the car will not run at all.

Driving home last night the battery light flickered on and the amp gauge swung towards discharge. Truck ran fine but electrical accessories operated slowly. The next day truck started with no problem,...


This sound like a loose conection at the batter or alternator. Check to make sure all the conections are tight and snapped in place securely.

New batter but battery light stays on


Your alternator must be defective, that is what turns on the light. Replace the alternator.
