SOURCE: radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light

The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)

the alternator has a circuit in it that illuminates the battery light on the dash.that circuit is most likely at fault but because the battery went dead once i would think your alternator is just about at the end of it's useful life.

the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off

SOURCE: 2004 saturn ion, one headlight does not work

Clean the contacts. Then check to see if you have power at the plug.
If no power at the plug try to trace the wire back. Not likely but make sure both headlights are on the same fuse. If you don't have a way of testing the circuit switch the bulbs. Move the working bulb to the other side.
Good luck!

I ve vchanged the battery and alternator on my 94 nissan sentra and the system still wont charge what is the cause


My wife and I have owned three 1994 Sentra cars. One of them went through batteries and alternators like crazy. Last time the 1-year old battery died, I replaced it and went straight to an auto electric shop. The technician found the alternator was putting out about 77 amps the entire time the engine was running (factory alternators are rated for 80 amps, but only when charging nearly-dead batteries). He also found that the harness running to the alternator was hot enough to scald you if you touched it. Miraculously, I found a factory NOS harness on eBay and bought it. Easy to put in, and the car went from a maximum charging voltage of about 13.1 volts, to a MCV of up to 14.1! Haven't replaced a battery or alternator on it since. Hope this helps someone...

I went on holiday for about two months and my roommate said she turned the car once a week. when i returned, i tried to turn it on but the battery was dead. AAA came and jumpstarted it and it turned on...


Dead battery, but to know for sure the battery is the issue, it MUST be fully charged and then load tested...

Facts on batteries, if you draw it totally and completely down, many never return..

The reason for the battery charge is, for example, diodes in your alternator can fail, everything appears to work, but when the vehicle is off, there is a voltage leak to ground. To test, measure how much voltage and amperage is going out of the battery when the vehicle is off, pull negative and put meter in series at that point. Do not be fooled by radio and clock, and you may want to pull fuses until you get nothing drawing out of the battery....for testing

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely dead...no warning whatsoever!


Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.

Blinkers suddenly went out on the Van


well, it could be a short, but it is more likely to be that the relay went again, or that the fuse went. try those first. and depending on the quality of the relay, it may go more often than every 4-5 months. if there is a short, when you replace the fuse it will immediately blow again. also, you might try replacing the bulbs.
