This could indicate a weak battery or a drain caused by some electrical circuit turned on. Some parts stores will run a free battery check for you. You don't mention your location or the age of the battery, (Cold weather may cause problem to be more obvious.) Make sure all your lights are off - a trunk light or glove box light could stay on because of a stuck switch. Make sure nothing is plugged into the lighter that would cause a drain.

My ignition went out on the steering column on my 1996 buick roadmaster, so my mechanic bypassed it and put in a switch and push button start, but the problem is by battery will not hold a charge,


So what does your mechanic think is wrong ? Battery dies overnight while sitting or when driving the battery goes dead ? Two different problems . Going dead overnight means there is a parasitic drain on the battery . ( something is staying on ) Going dead while driving means the alternator isn't charging the battery .

I have a 99 ford expedition eb ive had the battery n alternator tested both reading at the right volts but the battery keeps dying.... ive made sure every thing was tight n where they should be n...


If the alternator is charging the battery, and it goes dead overnight, you have a short to ground in the wiring that is draining the battery.
You can try disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the battery stays charged when the engine is off.
If it still goes dead, the battery could have a dead cell.

Have a 1994 blazer s10. keep replacing batteries and they go dead within few days! Where is a common short?


I'll start by saying if a battery goes dead you should be able to recharge it without having to replace it.
If it goes dead overnight something may be draining it, or the alternator may not be charging enough.
A mechanic would check alternator output and check all of the circuits for a power drain.

BATTERY IS GOOD SO IS THE STARTER AND THE ALTENATOR WHY DO I KEEP HAVING TO HAVE JUMP STARTS? 1997 FORD ESCORT


How long does it take for the battery to go dead, overnight, couple of days?

Have you checked the electrical system for draws? You'll need a multi meter capable of reading amperage. Disconnect the positive cable and hook the meter up in series with the battery and the positive cable. You want to make sure the key is out of the ignition, all the doors are closed and all the dome lights etc are turned off before doing this. If you get a reading of more than .050 amps than you have a draw. You may have to wait for 20 minutes or so for everything to power down to get an accurate reading.

If you have a draw of more than .050 amps than you can start pulling fuses one at a time until the draw goes away and then focus on the things that fuse supplies power to. Make sure you put the fuse back that you pulled out before pulling the next.

If there are no draws and the battery goes dead overnight disconnect the battery, let it sit overnight and then see if the battery will start the vehicle in the morning. Every once in a while you will run into a battery that has an internal draw and will run itself down all by itself.
