Check the alternator or belt. when running the alternator should read at least 14 to 14.5 at battery. with engine off, it should read at least 13 volts at battery. if the alternator is not charging right, not enough power will get to pcm,

I purchased a GM Certified 2008 Escalade in April 2010 and I haven't driven the SUV for over a month. Today I turned the key and get nothing. I think I need a new battery?


Great SUV and hopefully factory warranty to 100,000 miles included...Your battery can certainly lose it's charge when not being driven over a month. Your Escalade has many advanced electronic safety features. These continually drain the battery when not being re-charged while driving...First try to jump start your car from another car (that is running) to see if the battery might be saved...You could have developed a bad cell while in non-driving mode...Hope your battery is still rechargeable...If not, you should purchase the largest cca rated battery for your Escalade. These more powerful batteries can take more than a standard battery...Look for at least a 1000 cca (cold cranking amp) rating. Hope this helps. Delco, Autozone, Walmart, and Costco have the best pricing...not in that order..

1985 dodge powerwagon, lights went dim driving home now wont start, just replaced battery 6 months ago. starter clicked at first then nothing.


The alternator may not be charging the battery. Jump start it, and use a volt meter at the battery, red lead to positive and black to neg. The meter should read between 13 and almost 15 volts, any lower than 13 volts, the alternator is no good. (this is done with vehicle running).

Prizm was left unstarted for one month in 100 degree temperatures. Unable to jumpstart. Battery was replaced but starter does not seem to have power. Lights are working. Any ideas? My son loves this car....


Go to Advance Auto and ask for a $15 battery. these are new batteries returned because the customer bought the wrong item. they have a 90 day warranty and are $15 to $20. or simply return the battery you just purchased, and exchange it but get it tested before you leave the store.

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...


If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.

Battery light on dash is on but car is still going - only got a new battery 4 months ago - car is still driving - Imported 01 Mazda Premacy


The battery light on your dash indicates a charging system failure, that would be the alternator and its wiring. If you are still driving the car and haven't needed a jump start in four months, you probably have a malfunction in the circuit that checks the charging system.
Check your voltage at the battery with the vehicle running and if it is between 13.5-15 volts i wouldn't worry to much about it.
