Truck is draining charge and not charging battiers


I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start.
End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya

Jeep starts with jump..as soon as you turn it off it goes dead..no power for windows or even inside lights..


If you are completly without power for anything, you are most likly looking at a bad ground wire. Check the ground on the battery and follow the negative battery cable down to where it connects to the engine. Below are 2 pictures as I am not sure which engine size you have. The first is the location of that main ground from the battery for the 4.0 liter engine and the second is the location for the 2.5 liter engine. Sounds as if it's as simple as that if you are not getttting anything at all. Hope this helps.....

I am trying to do this from home have no testing equipment and do not know what iI need to test. I drove the car on Sautrday had not one problem. Tried to start the car on Sunday and I had absolutely no...


Hello,

Based on your problem, that I read fully twice, based on ALL THE things that are dead, this is positively a battery charging system problem.

Meaning this, Sense nothing works including head lights, which would work most likely, and they don't you are going to find this problem in a couple possible places. It appears your battery is dead. Now, listen if your battery is not dead or is good, the cables (positive or negative could be loose, or bad connection. What could also of happened, to cause this is a couple of things. If you have a bad alternator as you were driving it, it would not be charging your battery and actually draining it, with all your electronics on while driving. So, when you parked it, that battery most likely is completely dead or a positive of ground from that battery if loose or poor connection, allow the alternator not to charge battery while driving.

In conclution. Check good the battery, and connections and then the alternator. Now, sense you have no testing equipment as you stated, hard to test the alternator, all you can do, is somehow charge your battery and get car going and try and drive to closest battery place, even auto zone can check your battery cells and your alternator. I hope this helps. Mike

My battery keep dying and won't hold a charge.


I have the same exact problem. First thing I did was replace the battery. Still having problem. Alternator charges then, an hour later the battery is dead. I was at a stoplight and suddenly the air amd radio quit for a couple of seconds, the volt meter hit bottom, then kicked back in and everything worked again. Turned the car off, started it back up. Parked, went inside, came back out, battery dead. New battrery, Good alternator, could it be the regulator shorting out? do they have regulators anymore?

MY 1995 JEEP BROKE DOWN ABOUT A YEAR AGO I JUST HAD 3 MAIN FUSES REPLACED A BRAND NEW BATTERY AND A BRAND NEW ALTERNATOR BUT THE BATTERY WON'T KEEP A CHARGE I HAVE A SHORT SOMEHWERE BETWEEN THE FUSE BOX...


Have you checked the charging of the alternator at the battery? (not by a parts store) Put a volt meter across the battery and check voltage while running. You should be showing 13.5v or better (not over 14) with accessories off, 12.5 or better with everything on including high beams. If you don't, chances are you may have a regulator problem. I don't know how you are checking draw, but you should be using an ammeter placed between either battery terminal and cable (cable removed from battery) Unplug each fuse and watch for a substantial drop in draw. That system will be the one with the problem...then, unplug each component served by that fuse (with fuse replaced) till the draw again drops. That will be the component that is pulling your battery down. You did check the simple stuff like sun visor lights and glove box light?

Dead battery or alternator?


Sounds as if the alternator is shot.
You can take the battery and alternator in to any parts store NAPA, AutoZone, Murrays, etc. to have it load tested for free.

  1. Check the wiring of the new radio installed as follows..
  2. Disconnect battery ground
  3. verify radio ground wire is grounded to metal
  4. verify radio hot wire (normally red and thick) is connected to a power source that is off when the ignition key is in the "off" position.
  5. verify that the always hot wire is connect to a constant 12v power supply even with the ignition off.
  6. make sure the pwr antenna wire if not used is taped at the tip and not touching any metal.
  7. verify that all speaker wires are connect correctly and not shorted to ground.
  8. connect battery ground you may get a small spark if your courtesy lites work.
  9. start engine verify your battery is charging by disconnecting the battery ground cable while the engine is running, it should continue running if it don't, alternator maybe bad.
  10. If it continues running problem solved..
