    Hi Melanie, Did you get your problem fixed? I have a similar problem. I disconnected my battery to clean the terminals. I reconnected them and now I have a very rough idle and then the car will die. I can recrank, it will run for a few seconds, then it will die. If I crank it and then hold my foot on the pedal to keep the idle a little higher, it will keep running. As soon as I let off the pedal, it dies. Anyone have any idead?

Not sure what you mean continues to shut off? The old battery died is it bad or just run down? Did it run for awhile and then start stalling? Or did it stall in about the same amount of time each time yo start it like in two minutes and if you start it right back it'll quit even sooner? The battery may be being over harged if you have a voltmeter it'll show 12.6 volts for a good charged battery thats been sitting for awhile in a car that's turned off, you start the car watching the meter and it'll go down to almost 10 volts as it's cranking and after ti starts go up to about 14.5 if the engine and thebattery are very hot it'll not be as high like 13.5 volts is still OK. You sound like it's higher than that like 15. the car will shut off to keep it self from burning up. If it's doing this unplug the altenator and it'll run OK but the battery won't be being carged and it'lll go down. You can still drive it to the repair shop to get it fixed ( the altenator changed or repaired and the system checked out) Or you can remove it yourself take it down to the parts store have them test it and if it's bad replaceit with a tested good rebuilt unit. Have them test the new one too as they may test your old one wrong or the new one they're selling you is bad too.

84 camaro good battery and alt so the part store says but after one start battery is dead have all new wires ?


Battery is only used to start engine.
after charging battery, start car. remove Negative cable, if car dies, wiring to alternator is faulty.

if continues to run, shut off car and all accessories. install ammeter between Neg. cable and battery, if it shows a draw, pull fuses one by one to find circuit with draw while car is off.

Replaced alternator and battery in 2002 Chevy Tahoe. Battery voltage remains between 9 and 14 (leaning more towards 9 and at times falling completely until trucks shuts off)


Hello,
When you say battery voltage how are you testing it? Are you looking at a gauge on the dash? Or are you physically testing it with a multi meter? If the truck is dying and you recently replaced the alternator and battery I would first suggest you to check all them connections again real good. Snug them all up. Check for corrosion and clean as needed. Did you replace the battery and alternator with new/re-manufactured battery and alternator? The alternator needs to put out at least 13.6 volts to charge your 12 volt battery or the battery will not maintain a charge. However the alternator runs the vehicle once it is started. The battery is used only to start the car and then the alternator runs it. So if your vehicle starts and runs and then dies you may have a bad alternator. Check your connections first and then test the alternator with a multi meter. Anything less than 13.6 volt will not suffice. 14+ volts would be the hopeful output of a good alternator.
regards, Tony

My 1988 mx6 mazda car starting dying out plus battery light was on...I got a new battery. It ran tor two days, than it died out on me AGAIN! NOW it won't start.unless I get a jump, it runs for maybe 20...


Hi
If you have a new battery and it dies it means that the alternator is bad. The alternator is what replentishes the battery and run the car while you drive it. A simple test is as follows start the car, while the motor is running discinnect the (red) positive cable from the battery. The motor should continue to run....If it shuts off it means that the alternator is bad. The battery is only used to start the car! After its started it runs off of the alternator which also constantaly recharges your battery. Have any questions email me at jackdouglass@comcast.net

Car ran four days, went to start it and 'click', nothing. Went to repair shop who said it needed a new battery, installed. Ran another four days, went to start and 'click', nothing. Repair facility now...


If there is no power from battery to altenator, than the altenator is bad. Even some new ones can do that. Do check all your battery cable wires including ground wires. Make sure they are all clean. also tight.

Why do my headlights and interior lights dim and then battery light comes on


Because your battery is low and your there is a problem in your charging system. Loosen the nut on the negative battery terminal, start the vehicle and then remove the NEGATIVE terminal cable. If you have cables that mount to the front of the battery then start the vehicle and remove the negative cable. If the vehicle dies your alternator or voltage regulator are bad. Most likely the alternator. remove and replace. If the vehicle continues to run turn the lights on and see if it continues. If that is good, drive to Auto Zone, and ask them to come out and help you test the battery. They have a portable machine that will test it for you or have you bring the battery inside and test it for you, they will even help you install the replacement battery if needed.

Die battery


sounds like you just need a new battery... if the car starts when you're charging, the starter is most likely just using the power from the charger (or the charging battery). And if it continues to run once you've started it, then the alternator is fine.

It's possible that when you installed the new lamp socket that you created a short in the battery, or that the battery is just old and needs replacing... but replacing it is definitely where i would start.

Truck dies but engine keeps running. battery or alternator?


You need an alternator....well unless your belt came off or got very loose. The truck continued to drive because the battery had enough juice left to run the ignition system, but after you shut it off there was no where near enough to turn the engine over or possibly even run the starter. The battery will have to be charged and a new alternator installed.
Hope this helps.
