Sounds like you may have battery drain . Take the vehicle to a shop and have them check out battery and charging system. If this is a-ok then its either the wires behind the alternator that are corroded or you have battery drain. They will set up a voltmeter off the battery trminals and start pulling fuses until the neter readings are normal. Whatever fuse they pull that makes the current return to normal is the affected circuit.

Brake and battery light on new battery and alternator installed


Wouldn't be a fuse, but it seems as if the alternator is still not putting out normal power, or else your battery has a problem taking a charge. Better have the battery tested for a dead cell. also see what a voltmeter says about alternator output now. If you have an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere or in the alt. charging controls, then possibly one or more of the diodes in the alternator may got burnt out. That means the alternator puts out less power.
On some newer cars, the engine computer, pcm, controls the rate of charge of the alternator. So you have to be careful diagnosing -know how your system operates. That's why mechanics always ask for year, make, model, and engine size if applicable.

I put a new battery in my chev equinox 2 weeks ago seemed ok if I drove it every day, but if I leave it a day its completely dead, alt is charging at 14.7 volts, the only thing on is the security light on...


You need to make sure that your getting good conection to your battery. If your alternator is fine, as you stated, you might not be getting a good conection. Your alternator may be keeping your battery alive just enough when your driving. Check all connections. Hope this helps.

My lexus E350 battery goes dead if car is not used for a week. Had the battery checked with dealer says it is OK


This has happened to me TWICE in the past 4 months. I had Lexus road side service come out both times to check the car out. Each time the battery was totally dead. The road side mechanic said that if the car is not driven at least 15 minutes nonstop a day, the battery runs dead as there are so many draws from the car on the battery. If you do alot of stop and start driving like I do, that isn't enough to recharge the cell of the battery, it must be non stop driving time. Recommend that I get a 1.5 tricky charge device an hook to battery at least one night a week to keep the battery charged. This is really frustrating with such a new car. I've spoken to other owners of other model luxury cars and no one has had this problem.

All gauges went dead while driving, lights progressively dimmed and finally engine quit.


Your alternator died. You drove until your battery died also. You need a new alternator and a new battery. You might be able to get away with just charging your battery. Do Not jump start the vehicle and let the new alternator try to charge the old battery! Take the battery to a service station for testing and a charge. Install the new alternator and then install the charged battery not vice versa and you'll be fine.

Battery keep going dead, has new battery


Have you checked to see if the alternator is charging ? Run a volt meter on the battery with the engine running, have to have more than 14 volts. If 13 or less, then replace the alt.

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems


I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.
