Have the alternator checked and make sure it is good,and check the different components on the car,things that draw a lot of voltage ,like motors,cooling fans,blower motors any amps for sound system?These little alternators are not made to hold up against heavy loads,if there is a motor that is going bad,or if the cooling fan motor stays on all the time,ecm wold not effect the alternator system,you may have to change brands of alternators,and also,replace the plug in to the back of the alternator,they can cause them to fail.

When not running the engine for a week, the battery dies. When I jump start it, engine will start cranking very slow and pickup speed before it starts running.


it seems like the battery is going. clean battery terminals, also the grounding to the body (engine block, transmission, etc.) all should be shiny cleaned. suggest you go to autozone (or other auto parts) for a free battery & alternator tests.

I have a 2002 ford escape just got new battery and I'm still needing boost after boost wat could this be


This could be alternator not putting out correct voltage, could be starter going bad, could be some short creating a drain on the battery, like a light on somewhere, could be a loose or bad ground on the neg battery cable..Could be the wire that sends voltage from the alternator to the pos battery cable which charges the battery.. Take your volt meter test the output voltage of the alternator with the engine running,, should be about 14v.. now check the battery,, the 14v or most of it should be getting to the battery.. if not find the bad connection where the power is being lost.

Battery draining over night bonneville 95


a short will blow a fuse what you have is something stating on most common is a bad power antenna but remove the neg cable and place a test light between the battery and the neg cable remove fuses till the light goes dim the removed fuse that allows the light to go dime is the draw on the battery also a bad diode in the alternator will drain it as well so unplug and unbolt that as well

New battery and new altenator and but battery wont stay charged


HAS THE ALTERNATOR BEEN TESTED ? WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING, THE VOLTAGE READING SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 13.60 & 14.80. IF THAT SEEMS O.K. WITH EVERYTHING IN THE CAR IN THE OFF POSITION, ALL THINGS UNPLUGGED FROM CIGARETTE LIGHTER SOCKETS, ALL DOOR, TRUNK SHUT, & IF THERE IS AN UNDERHOOD LIGHT UNPLUG IT OR REMOVE THE BULB. TAKE OFF THE NEGATIVE CABLE FROM THE BATTERY CONNECT A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, ONE END TO THE NEG POST OF THE BATTERY, & THE OTHER END OF THE TEST LIGHT TO THE CABLE YOU JUST REMOVED. IF THE TEST LIGHT IS LIT, THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. UNPLUG ONE AT A TIME, ALL RELAYS & THE ALTERNATOR, TO ISOLATE THE DRAIN.

Battery cables FRYED!


Battery cables can be purchased at any auto parts store. Always remove the Negative cable first. The positive cable connects to the solenoid to the starter. After removing both cables, connect the positive cable to eh solenoid to the starter, and route it up to the battery. If the new battery has protective caps on it, leave them on for now. Connect the negative cable to the ground. Connect the positive cable to the battery (remove the caps) Once secure, connect the negative cable to the battery (be very careful not to touch anything metal) IMPORTANT: Make sure the Positve cable is connected tot eh Positeve battery terminal (indicated by the + sign. The Negative cable connects to teh Negative post indicated by the - sign. I hope this answers your question fully and best of luck to you!
