SOURCE: battery keeps going out on a 2005 ford focus wagon

have you replaced the battery? If not they do get bad cells, If you have? Do a voltage test on battery before you start it and after, Before should be 12.5 or close to tht, And running should be 14 or close to it, If not bad altenator, If both of those check out? Has the vehical got a stock stereo? Sometimes amps and subs kill a charging system, I`ll be waiting for your repost to continually try to help you. Good luck, Sam

SOURCE: my battery in my 2008

1. From what you have said it appears there is sufficient power being drained from the new battery when the vehicle is turned off to completely flatten the battery. With the number of power driven items in these vehicles I cannot sit here and guess what it might be. (For example, the electric motors in the seats in some vehicles malfunction and start draining power sufficient to flatten a battery. Power window switches sometimes malfunction and do not cut power to the electric motor in the door, etc etc.). I assume you have checked the obvious, ie. there are no lights remaining on in the vehicle and that the entertainment system is fully powering off normally etc.

OR

2. The alternator in the vehicle could be faulty and may be generating insufficient charge when you are driving. When this occurs any power shortfall is drawn from the battery and it will eventually go flat.

I suggest you take the vehicle to a competent auto electrical specialist and have it checked out. You will only find the fault by having the vehicle inspected and tested.

If the alternator checks out OK he should then be able to trace the source of any power drain for you if that is the cause of the battery discharge.

Finally, phone up the service department of you local ford dealer and ask if there have been other 08 Expeditions they have had in the workshop with this problem. If so they should be able to tell you what they found to be the cause or causes in those instances. It is useful to know but it does not mean the cause will be the same in your case.

SOURCE: battery keeps going flat in

hi.

first thing, whan you turn the keys to step 2 in ignition, the warning lights are supposed to come on, so you can see that the lights are actually working. they then go out when the engine is running.
as long as they go out when the engine is running, then they are not a problem.
if the battery has only been going flat since the service in Fords, then take it back, and complain.
ask them exactly what was done, and keep complaining until they do something.
if they have caused a drain on the battery, then it is up to them to fix it.

My passenger side front window (England, left) dosnt work properly. It goes down ok but it will not go back up unless operated by the drivers doors. (England, Right)


Hi, has your car got global closing. Sometimes they forget their memory, normally after pulling a fuse or flat battery. Open all your windows, sunroof if you have one. Press the lock on your fob and keep held down, all windows should close, this also works for opening when you keep hold of the open button, try doing this a few times, eventually it restores memory. I also have a 2001 focus.
