Probally have a draw someplace. If you have a volt meter, you should know how to use it then, check to see what the amps are when the key is off. Unhook postive or negivte batter cable, put one end to the battery and the other to the cable and you'll get your amps. If it's under, 1 I belive you're good. If more, let us know.

Car battery dying


The light is telling you the battery is low on charge. What you need to do is check the alternator and see if it is putting out the correct amperage. If you go to Auto zone they can check this for you and I believe it is free. Another test you could do is start the car and pull the positive cable from the battery and if the car dies then you have a charging problem and most likely is the alternator. A couple things about the battery itself. Make sure the connections are clean and tight. If the alternator is good then maybe the battery is not taking the charge from the alternator.

1991 ford escort battery keeps dying


Check and clean and tighten all battery, starter, and alternator connections. Also the battery and engine to chassis grounds. Did you have the battery " load tested" as a good test requires?
Take the battery out and have it charged up. If the alternator is good, you should not have any more problems. But if you need a jump after a few days to start it, then either the alternator or the battery is just not up to par. Have the alternator tested while on the car and running.
Good luck.

My cadillac deville has no power after sitting for a few days. i need a jump to get it started. why is that


Replace the alternator. Once the battery dies, the alternator should still have a little bit of power left in it, if your car isn't starting after it's been jumped, chances are that the alternator is shorted out. Replace the alternator, and also recharge your battery. Check your battery terminals for signs of corrosion, and clean it off with a scrubbie and a mix of water and baking soda.
