    we tried that. It still isnt holding charge. Does anyone know if there is an alternator relay and where it might be located?

You need to get the battery checked first,then start diagnostics....

    to check the relay you only need to put a voltmeter acroos the two terminals to ascertain 14.8 volts(the charge voltage...)if not 14.8 then it IS the charge relay.

2009 451 Passion. Why a frequent dead battery?


That is definitely wrong, not normal. Voltage should stay at 14 volts or near that until the battery is close to fully charged, then will slide down to about 13.5 volts, and stay there while engine is running. Also, a fully charged battery should show about 12.6 volts at a minimum, especially a new battery.
I don't know what is going on with your system. Take it back to Merc- were they aware of how it is acting, voltage-wise? Doesn't sound like it. One small possibility: is your alternator belt not tight enough?

Battery light and abs light is on and battery wont stay charged, new battery and altenator is good


This sounds like a bad alternator , maybe it charges at times and other times it does not, check connections to battery and at alternator, also make sure all fuse are good.

Battery light stays on


start engine and get someone to hold rpm at 1500 then disconnect battery and if engine stops replace altenator ,if it keeps going then warning light control is U/S but to repair will nesitate removing the altenator and stripping it to change the brush /regulator unit and this can cost nearly as much as a recon altenator ,if it charges then leave it alone it could run for 50.000 miles or more like this

2000 mitsubishi eclipse dies when idling


What you have is PROBABLY a bad Idle Air Control stepper motor... if the car stays running with your foot on the gas, and only dies when you let your foot OFF the gas... or if it dies when you shift (again, cause you foot is off the gas) that is definitely the problem. The stepper motors are kind of pricey (over $300) at the dealership, but you should be able to get one from an auto parts store for 150 or so. easy as heck to replace, it has three 8MM bolts into the throttle body, just unplug it, unscrew the bolts, and put the new one in... just be sure to be careful with the new o-ring... DON'T LOSE IT! :)

Good luck!

Low volts light stays on


new altenator or junkyard one.if new return it, if junkyard just ignore light as its odds on they will not change it .the red light is caused by the difference in the voltage between input and output voltages .Quick test --start engine and run at 1500rpm disconnect battery and turn everything electrical on and if engine stops then change altenator if it stays running then altenator is OK

fit a new altenator and not a secondhand one from the scrappers also check the big block connector and fuses in front of the battery as in the uk they get wet and corrode ,this is where the altenator feed runs from ,try disconnecting the big wire and flashing it to see if it sparks ??quickest way to test for charging is to start car and then disconnect battery ..if it stops its not charging.quick load test for altenator speed up engine too 2000 rpm then disconnect battery and turn everything on if angine stops the altenator is not pushing out enough voltage....right anyone seen a nice mk4 zodiac executive for me ??
