Fluctuating voltage meter


Alternator maybe charging , but not enough to keep the battery charged which is causing the battery to drop charge. Most likely it's the voltage regulator inside the alternator. but regardless the whole alternator will have to be replaced. This will eventually cause the new battery cells to go bad.

or any of several reasons:

  • You accidentally left the lights on or some other accessory that pulls power from the battery even when the ignition key is off.
  • The battery is not being recharged while the vehicle is being driven (you have a charging problem)
  • There is a key off parasitic electrical drain on the battery because a relay is sticking, a module is not shutting down, or there is a shorted diode in the alternator.
  • Your battery is old and will not hold a charge anymore. The battery needs to be replaced.

Not to disparage Advanced Auto, but you should check it yourself with a voltage meter-when the car is running, voltage should be over 14 volts, measure it at the battery posts AND at the reat post on the alternator-the readings should be within .02 volts of each other. A digital meter only costs $15 (at Advanced) and is a more accurate test than an alternator that has been removed from the car-when you test it out of the car, you are not accounting for poor connections that might be causing your problem in the first place.

The battery keeps going dead after only a few days.


check the battery voltage with the car running, you should see 13.5 to16 volts dc if the alternator is working. Make sure you are not doing short runs all of the time when starting a car it take approximately 15 minutes to bring the battery to full charge so if your trips are under 15 minutes all of the time the battery will run down. if everything else looks ok it is possible you have a bad battery or something is left on in the car

Where is the battery locate on a 2004 volkswagen toureg


I believe it is located under the front seat. To access it, locate the trim panel at the base of the seat. Remove it carefully and you'll see the front seat attachment bolts. Remove the bolts and tip the seat back. You'll then see the battery cover and you'll have access to the battery.
