Hi! You may want to check for grounded wires. There might be loose or wounded wires that can discharge the battery. One good place to start is on the car stereo wirings. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Battery ok alt new battery light stays on


The light means the alternator is not charging the battery. Once the charging circuit is completed, the warning light looses its ground connection.
You may need to double check the circuit going from the alternator to the battery, or the warning light circuit going to the alternator as it could be shorted to ground.

Check your manual for what the battery light indicates. It is just a general light for the electrical....not always the battery.

I have a 2006 saturn ion-2 the battery keeps dying and wont stay charged. Whats going on with it?


If the battery is new, and you are sure it is ok, either the alternator is not charging the battery or there is something in the car that is using power when the key is off.
You could disconnect the battery at night to see if it stays charged, and-or have the alternator output checked.

96 grand caravan 3.3l battery not staying charged. new serpintine belt, batterty, pulleys, and alternator tested ok several times. Also new computer installed and no fuses are blown. Should I replace the...


if alternator tested fine the wire on the back of the alternator is not getting a circuit back to the battery to charge it.
You can run a wire from the back of the alternator to the battery positive post and it will charge the battery.
I have done that several times on dodges because of ammeter gauge in dash being burnt out.
With the ammeter gauge burnt out it breaks the circuit from the alternator to the battery and the battery does not get charged.

Check the function of the alternator. Charge the battery with a battery charger or jump start the engine. While the engine is running use a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery posts. Red to + and black to -. You should have between 13.5 − 16 volts. If you do not the alternator is bad or the drive belt is loose. If the alternator checks ok then something is on that is drawing power from the battery and running it down. Check under hood, trunk, glove box, and interior lights. Can also be a brake light switch causing the brake lights to stay on. In rare cases it can also be a stuck relay such as a power window relay. From you description I think you will find the alternator is ok and your problem is something is on and running the battery down.

Battery will not stay charged


Check the battery strength and then double check your alternator to make sure it's charging.. I installed 3 alternators, new off the shelf, on one vehicle, and all three were duds (4th one worked fine). If the battery does not need replacing, and the alternator is charging, double check and make sure no components are left on such as a light in the glove box.

Battery light stays on until I press the gas


Known issue to occur occasionally on VW/Audi. What is occurring is that the alternator is not spinning out fast enough to start charging, so the light is on. Once you rev the engine, the alternator starts to charge and remains charging till its shut off and restarted. It can be related to too low of an idle (not adjustable, unless you have a dirty throttle plate or air leak), the alternator itself (aftermarket or a bad rebuild) or an incorrect alternator pulley installed (too large).
