Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

Truck is draining charge and not charging battiers


I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start.
End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya

You need to fix or replace the cable and then charge the battery with a charger. Jump starting with a dead Battery will sometimes trigger the Security system and it will prevent starting.

Most likely your Battery continued to run down because the charging system could not get the electric back into the Battery. So as you drove, the Battery was getting weaker because of the bad connection of the cable.

Charge the Battery, fix the cable, and then go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan or charging system test. They will hook up testing equipment and find out if anything needs replacing. The testing is free.

yes the alternator has failed or the wiring to it, this caused a low voltage condition that caused the engine to stop once it went below about 10 volts.

You more than likely burned the fuse for the car's radio and will likely need to be replaced.

Battery is dead 2004 nissan frontier v6


Check the alternator and battery clemmas/wires coming from alternator. It looks like no charge from it coming to battery. If it is second battery already this is the sign. You can do it free of charge at autozone store. But any way as a temporary solution you can buy battery charger ($25 walmart) and charge the battery back if battery is damaged you will see it right away (it wont be charging). After you charge battery back start the engine run it for 30 minutes (if Alternator OK it is enough to charge battery back), stop and start again. If no start alternator is a problem.
Good Luck
