Question about 1992 Dodge Daytona

1 Answer

Dead battery but when I connect a charger some relays click on in the front right corner of the engine area. After charging, the battery goes dead again in a few hours. Sounds like the relays shouldn't engage at least until the key switch is on. Wheres the problem?

Vehicle acts like dead battery but it is not.


It is a type of security system. Like you said all functions are turned off until you push button because battery is disconnected from system.

Assuming the battery is fully charged, the connections from the battery red to starter motor & relay are tight, and black terminal from battery to engine block (or chassis) are tight, and cables &/or terminals are not corroded, and the battery electrolyte levels are not low to expose the battery lead plates, the symptoms you describe sounds like a main fuse panel issue. Some cars have two fuse panels; one beneath the driver or passenger console, another one beneath the hood in engine area. If fuses are OK, then not enough electrons are passing through when you turn the key, meaning something is acting as a resistor to prevent free flow of electrons (loose connections or corroded terminals or cables). When you pop open the caps off the battery, each cell holds 2 volts. If the lead plates are exposed, that cell will hold less than 2 volt. Replenish with distilled water or battery electrolyte (sold at some auto parts store, so call around instead of driving all over town). If you have a battery charger & digital voltage meter, the battery should read 12.6 to 13 volts for fully charge. If below this, touch black probe on voltage meter to negative side of battery, then dip red probe on each of battery cell's electrolyte. Write down the voltage reading of each cell, then hook up the battery charger let charge for half an hour or so until battery shows 12.6 or higher reading after unplugging the charger. With charger unplugged, take digital voltage meter and take 2nd voltage reading of each cell, dipping red probe into electrolyte while black probe touches negative side of battery. Write down voltage reading of each cell. Wait half an hour to 45 minutes, then take a 3rd voltage reading of each cell. If there's a drop in voltage reading on one cell from the 2nd time, this cell is not holding a charge and its draining power from the adjacent cells, resulting in eventually leaving a dead battery after it had been parked over the weekend. Replace the battery. This method of diagnosis to check battery condition is more accurate than a load test. I've seen batteries that will pass a load test, yet battery goes dead after the car (or semi truck or bus) had been parked for 2 or 3 days because the faulty cell had drained power from the adjacent cells next to it. In semi trucks & buses, when the battery goes dead, it continues to drain the power from other batteries that are hooked in parallel or series to other batteries.

Battery goes dead instantly


TAKE BATTERY TO AUTO PARTS STORE FOR A LOAD TEST PROCEDURE, MAKE SURE THE CASE IT IS PUT IN HAS THE DOOR CLOSED FOR YOUR SAFETY, BATTERIES SOMETIMES DO "EXPLODE" AND ACID FLYING IS NOT GOOD. IF BATTERY IS NOT GOOD, I WILL SUGGEST YOUR BUY AN AMPHOROUS SOLAR POWERED BATTERY CHARGING PANEL, THEY COST BOUT 30 BUCKS AND WILL KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED UP OVER LONG PERIODS OF TIME.

1995 dodge stratus keeps going dead in driveway. I jump it off and let it run 15 mins to charge battery up. Turn off and crank right up, but the next day it is dead again.


With engine running used a voltmeter and check voltage at battery, you will be checking alternator out put voltage, should have a reading of no less then 13.0 volts, if less bad alternator, the reason it keeps going dead is that the car is using the battery to run it .till the battery has no more power, then you jump it and the battery is charge up again and will run again till it goes dead again.

When I turn the key I get a rapide clicking sound


Check your ground wire for battery where it connects to your frame.

Also check/clean the connections where the positive wire goes to the starter solenoid. Any connection you run into from the battery, clean them off with a wire brush or sandpaper.

Starter Solenoid can also be failing/dead, these can be tested for free at most auto part stores if you remove them from the vehicle.

My 1997 Saturn sl2 has a problem with the battery dead after sitting for a month. I charged the battery and took the positive cable off and let it sit for a month and it still had a full charge. Something...


your car will always have something being powered but its a trickle amount[computer-entry control[keyless entry]-radio memory-etc if ur going to let it sit for a month with battery connected yes your battery will more than likely be dead when u disconnect it ur also clearing all codes and memory in computer and components auto stores sell a trickle charger/maintain charge charger for long term storage there used for any type battery boats ,cars,atvs ,planes,etc the charger maintains the charge in a battery it goes on and off when needed

Car wont start, just a clicking noise from the engine, insurtument clocks go all the way round before resting back at zero


If you are getting a rapid clicking noise, that means the battery is dead or you have a poor connection between the battery and starter. It could also be a poor connection on the negative or ground side of the battery or ground cable. Try jump starting it or put a battery charger on it for a half hour or so and try it again. If you get it going you should have the charging system and battery checked ASAP (as soon as posible). If you don't need to go anywhere leave the charger on the battery over night, set the charger on a slow charge rate less than 15 amps.

I was driving home and all of a sudden all of the warning lights started to flash on and off...battery showed little to no juice. I did make it home, but as soon as I turned the car off and tried to turn...


Ladytkk:

The clicking sound is the starter solenoid (a relay) trying to connect the starter to the battery. This is normal when the battery is run down. the first thing to do is to see if you can charge the battery.
If you do not have a charger, see if you can borrow one. BTW, a small charger is a good thing to have, especially if lights or etc are left on and your battery is dead when its time to go to work. You can get a small one at a Walmart like store for a reasonable fee. Connect the red lead of the charger to the red (+) terminal of the battery and the black lead of the charger to the black (-) lead of the battery. Let it charge for at least 5 or 6 hours. Unplug the charger, disconnect it from the battery and try to start the car. It will probably start. At first opportunity, drive the car to one of the major auto parts stores like AutoZone and have them load test the battery. If you need a new battery, most stores will install it right there.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh Please give me a rating Thks
