Battery wont stay charged


If the alternator is good and the battery is new, then something is draining the battery while it's parked. In the old days people left their headlights, radio or something on and this drained the battery. Now a days this is not as big a problem with 5 minute timers that turn off lights if you forget. I would take it back to whomever did the alternator work for an answer. How old is the battery? You can take it to see if it can't hold a charge any longer. In my experience, most batteries don't seem to hold a charge after about two years. Did anyone do some custom work in your car that requires electricity? It could be this extra stuff is draining the battery.

Battery on 06 silverado runs dead over a few days of not being used.


More than likely a parasitic drain.
Many times in courtesy system--Check after dark for any system lights burning, especially lighted mirrors if present.
If not found, drain test required.

2005 F250 Battery lite would come on until warmed up, for approx 1 month batteries hold charge under a load. Had to jump start twice and while driving the Dash cluster went wild, IE ~ ABS Lite, A Wrench...


first i would check the alternator just to be on the safe side sounds just like the problem or the brain or body control module went haywire on and sometimes a battery will show that is good untill you actually use it might get a good diagnose from a local shop - dealer etc.

ABS light, VSC light, and battery light all came on at the same time. VSC light is an easy reset, but it appears vehicle is running off battery charge only. I had battery checked, and it is 1-year old...


Your alternator has to produce at least 13.1 volts to recharge the battery. If less is produced then possible causes are alternator, wiring, fuse, drive belt. Your ABS and VSC modules will self protect and shut down when low voltage is detected. Repair the charging problem and the warning lights will be sorted too.

It sounds like your alternator is bad. East way to confirm, take it to local auto parts store (IE: Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE charging system test. Couple of thoughts; you have two new batteries and your poor alternator has to work twice as hard. After you put new batteries in, you've been running on straight battery power. Alternator normally runs all your electronics and recharges battery(s) but if Alt has gone "south" then you're on straight battery power.

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.

My silverado 3500 01 battery keeps going


Ck the charge rate at the battery posts. The proper range is 23.6 to 14.2v , The higher the voltage the llower the amps. Ie; at 13v Alternator is about 10% under capacity. @ 12v it is charging at max capacity. @ 15 v isthe alt is not charging but frying your battery. 9amps is ok if battery is fairly charged but at start up it should sit on 13-13.6 volts. for about 15 seconds the start climbing to less charge towards 14.2.

84 Vette car sits for three days and it drains battery battery is new----just had alt. rebuilt-- short where?


If it still does it, locate the fuse panel and with the car off, pull a fuse and measure the current draw.  Be careful.  Make sure your meter is on HI AMPS.
