Battery drains


Assume you mean drains of power not fluid. Does battery light show on dash with engine running. Make sure that the alternator drive belt is correctly tensioned (longest side betwen pullys move 1/2" up/down). If it takes a few days to loose charge temp fix is to use a solar battery charger that can charge battery when car is parked. Hope this helps.

THe voltage regulator is in the alternator. They say to repair you have to change the alternator - which is not entirely true. A knowledgable auto electrician can solve the problem at very little cost - comparatively.

1998 Mercury Marquis: Battery indicator light blinks in random, unpredictable ways (not all the time), even though battery is good. Could the sensor be old and unreliable? Or would you trust sensor and...


The light comes on when the alternator voltage/current is low or if there is a short that is draining the battery. If it's blinking, the voltage is probably near the lower limit of acceptable voltage. Recommend checking voltage at the battery with car running. Should be at least 14 volts. If you don't have a voltmeter, take the alternator off and have it tested at the parts store. Let us know if you have more questions.
