The alternator is not charging the battery. Check that the alternator belt is in good condition and is niether too loose nor too tight.

My 1991 Ford F350 w/5.8, 351Windsor driven for an unspecified amount of time (days, weeks, months?) with a bad alternator. After replaceing it, next was solenoid & starter. Now, not firing. Good coil…

if the alternator was not charging , there would have been an indicator light on in the dash or the volt gauge would have been showing a negative or under 11 volts
second point against a failed alternator for a period of time is that it would have been running off the battery and that results in missing, not starting and engine stopping , dying when being driven as the battery ran down so maybe 2 days at the most with a bad alternator
no spark is-- immobilizer , cam/crank position sensor and ignition control module , no injector or fuel pressure
try reading the fault codes to get closer to the problem

2010 Tucson Hyundai battery drain somewhere. Changed the battery and alternator and still after sitting for a couple of days it goes dead. Has been in many times for same issue and Hyundai can not seem...


we have the same problem. Replaced the battery a month ago and it died yesterday again. The car is at the dealer now. They are trying to blame us for the problem. I have a feeling they know exactly whats wrong, but they are not willing to tell us, since its still under warrenty for 1 month.
Suggestions are;

- the radio might drain your battery, even when its off.
- do you have a homelink? If so, it might be wired the wrong way.

so far thats all i found out by surfing the web.

Battery keeps losing charge in y 2001camry after only about 5 days

A voltage drain in 5 days should be serious enough to find, unless it is at random times. The drain could be on and off every other hour for example.
You may have to check the battery voltage level each day with one fuse pulled to see if the voltage level drops. If the battery has been tested and it is in good condition, it should hold a charge for at least a couple of weeks or longer.

Battery goes dead if not driven for a few days

That would happen because of two reasons 1.Your battery needs to be replaced and has lost its life. 2.The battery is known to die if not used for some time, keep charging it by running your vehicle more often.

Subaru 2009 battery problem

it is possible with clocks and such to drain the battery after 2 weeks. if you can't let it run for a while during that time, just unhook negitive battery cable untill ready to use.
