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.

Why my car is dead after sitting for 3 days. when first hooked up jumper cables the interior lights came on then went off and wouldnt even turn over


If your battery is dead after 3 days it's probably getting stuffed or else you left something on. Anyway jump starting should work regardless. How good are your jumper leads? You need a pretty heavy set to start a car not those skinny things you get at super cheap auto stores. Hook them up and start car you're jumping off and run it at a high idle for about 5 min then try and start your car. That should put a base charge into your battery and it should go. If not buy a new battery.

Wont start with key


Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.

After I replace a new battery in the key,hawcan I reset the antitheft system on mu 2008 Lancer


Not reset reprogram right. To do that follow the instructions below.
1. Locate the Data Port under drivers side dashboard usually located to the right of steering column.

2. Insert keys in ignition and leave in the OFF position.

3. Make sure there are metal contact pins in terminals 1 and 4 and connect the Data Port terminals 1 and 4 with a
suitable jumper wire, leave the jumper wire connected throughout the programming procedure. Make sure you
know which terminals are 1 and 4.

4. Within 10 seconds after connecting the jumper wire, press the Hazard Switch 6 times. Note: The doors will
automatically lock and unlock once at this time indicating that the system is in the programming mode.

5. Press the LOCK button on the remote to be registered three times within 10 seconds. Upon successful
programming, the door will lock and unlock once.

6. Repeat step 5 with up to 4 remotes (including any existing remotes) within one minute. After completing each
programming, the doors will lock and unlock once.

7. Disconnect the programming wire and remove the keys from the ignition.

Check battery cables are correct ! Prime suspect here ! Alternator may be damaged and shorting .. Don't drive any car that will melt jumper cables ! Something very basic wrong here.

My battery is running dead every two days! I jump it and starts up, after several minutes with the jumper pack cables! This has happened 4 to 5 times since I purchased the vehicle just 2 weeks ago...Am I...


If the key is in off position it won't drain battery.
You may have battery draw in that vehicle , or the battery itself is going out.(BMW batteries are good for 4-5 years)
Both cases needs to be checked by workshop , cause BMW very sensetive to the voltage drop. When you disconnect battery you may need to perform some settings adaptation after you replace it or connect it back.
New BMW requared to reset computer even after brake job and battery replacement.

I forgot to turn off the lights in my car. What can I do to start the car running? Do I need to replace the battery?


You can either jump the battery, or remove the battery from the car and bring it to your local repair shop to have it charged and tested, (a lot of auto supply stores will do this for free so call around), or you can jump start your battery and hope it holds a charge.

To jump a battery you will need a set of jumper cables and a second car, or a battery booster pack, (nice investment, they really are handy in a jam).

To jump a car with jumper cables:
******* Always where eye protection*********
1) Open the hood on the dead car and locate the battery.
2) Park the second car as close to the front of the dead car as possible, (just try to leave enough room to walk around the vehicles if you can).
3) Open the hood on the second car and locate the battery.
4) Attach the red, (positive) cable clamp to the Positive, (+) terminal of the battery on both cars.
5) Connect the black, (negative) cable clamp to the negative, (-) terminal of the battery of both vehicles.
6) With the second car running leave the vehicle to sit for about 5 minutes then attempt to start the dead vehicle.
7) If vehicle fails to start, wiggle the cable clamps to create a better connection.
8) If vehicle starts, remove the cable clamps negative first then the positive.
9) You may consider bringing the vehicle to your local auto supply to have the battery load tested once the car has run for a while, (most auto supply stores will do this for free so call around)


Using a booster pack is basically the same, except, you replace the second car with the booster pack. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for charging the booster pack before use.

Good luck. Please rate, thanks.

2002 Gmc Safari 4.3L, ticking/clicking sound coming from area by alternator and vehicle would not start after being turned on and off a few times. Dealer claims it is distributor cap and rotor plus weak...


Usually a dead cell will show normal to low voltage on a voltmeter but it won't allow the car to start. I'm not sure on the electrical mechanics of it, but it has something to do with the battery not being able to run a return current through the starter when you're trying to start it. If the car will start up fine with jumper cables then the battery is most likely dead.
