Could be that there is a battery drain, a common one that most people wouldn't notice is the trunk light staying lit even when closed.
To test a drain remove the negative battery cable and put a test light in series. (Attach the Neg Cable to the Test light, then the test light to the Neg Post of the battery) The light should dim slowly then go off if there is no drain.
Could also be that your alternator simply isn't charging the battery anymore, Check the Serpentine belt to be sure it's tight, you should be able to twist it roughly 45% give or take with ease.
Hope this helps

Battery won't hold charge could either be bad cell in battery or you have a charging problem with your alternator, First I would chech your charging voltage should be around 14.2 volts while at idle, if ok then i would do a load test on battery and then a cell test, very possible could have a shorted out battery.

320D E46 BMW 2000 engine won't start. Batery indicator is OK, central lock is working.


If your battery is good and all of your other electrical systems work fine then chances are it is your starter that is bad. However if the engine turns over but just won't start then you most likely have an electrical problem such as a bad ignition switch or ECM. I hope this helps you out.

1996 jag xjs , the battery is dead , I need to jump start it but the trunk won't open ,battery in the trunk , can it be jumped from under the hood ? and why won't the trunk open even with a key ?


The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

Please check alternator when replacing batery.

What could be the issue charging the battery on a Dodge ram 150 with a 360 motor Alternator is good and is throwing enough juice but its not geting to the battery. we traced it back to close to the battery...


if the batery is old enough it could be that it just can't hold a charge any more, check that the batery terminals are in good dhap and not curoded, it doesent take much to distrupe the current flow to and from the batery

Changed car batery, now i need to reset the clock.


press the set button and use the seek and scan buttons to change time

Press the volume control knob and hold down. Press the seek button left to set hour, press right to set minutes.

Hold the clock button, and use seek left and right. Left <- (Hours) & Right -> (Minutes)

Depending on what radio you have ONE of these will work.
