Sounds like a dead cell/shorted battery. 3 years is a little soon but with the fact that you recently replaced the alternator, I would suspect that your battery is done! Even a weak battery will let you jump one, bad cables usually will let you jump one, but a shorted/bad celll in a battery will prevent them from taking a jump. good luck

1995 Buick Regal battery light is on after replacing bettery. Please help!!!

Battery light actually means charging system light. This indicates their is a fault with your charging system. You may have noticed your old battery slow down to nothing. First step is to check the alternator belt is intact, good condition and tension. Next see if the pulley is spinning freely. Then you will need to check your alternator charge rate> You will need a multimeter to check this otherwise will need to see your local auto-electrican to check. If you have a multi-meter, i can run you through the steps to check charge if you would like.

1991 Buick Regal will not start on cold mornings. Battery has been replaced. What else could it be?

Higher cold cranking amp rating on the battery. 850 or higher. Those old Buick motors get heavy in the cold

1995 Buick Regal. Occasionally does not start. Does try to turn over. Will take a jump. Happens about once a week. sometime more, sdometimes less. no set pattern. getting worse. used to be if you...

Slow charge the battery up for 3 days on a trickle charge and see if it still does it.

If it does, maybe a new battery is in order.

Batteries last only 3 years on average.

Good luck.

I change the battery , now the starter, and my 1995 buick regal still falls dead what else can it be

If the alternator does not put out at least 13.5 volts when the engine is reved up, then a brand new battery will only last a few days before being dead.
The battery and starter probably had nothing at all to do with the problem.

I have a short somewhere and it drains the batterry if I leave it on overnight If I disconnect the battery overnight it starts right up in the morning

When you disconnect the battery cables, do you disconnect both or just the negative and how old is the battery. Sulfated cells in the battery will cause the same condition.

Most of the time the culprits are the glove box light or trunk light left on. However the light dimming module should turn them off after they have been on for 20 minutes or so on your vehicle.

I would start by disconnecting the wiring at the alternator and let it set over night and see if it starts in the morning.

Buick Regal 2001 LS dashboard lights flash off and on

It turned out the ground wire to the battery was loose, Evidently, it loosened up when driving so mimiced the earlier symptoms because it connection was sporadic. I hooked up to a computer to verify after connection tightened and it came away with no errors or problems.

Check the Tension on the Belt. If it is even a Little loose it will not allow the Battery to Charge. Check the Alternator Also.
