It may be that the batterys bad.have you had it checked ?autozone or advance auto parts check them for free.if the batterys good look for a light thats being left on inside, look for a tail light or brake light stuck on.i'm thinking,if you disconnect the battery at night and reconnect it the next morning,will it start? thats a good test to tell whether or not somethings staying on at night.i suggest you try that tonight.that will tell you whether it's a dead short or just a bad battery. thank you for choosing

You more than likely need to replace the battery.

02 lincoln battery not holding charge

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If the battery is not holding charge eventhough that the alternator is in good condition then the problem will be on the battery itself. If the battery is faulty or near it's break point it tends not to hold charge. I strongly suggest that you have it replaced.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1986 ford f250 wont hold a charge

the alternator might be gone in it, either that or the battery is too old and the core inside it isnt doing its job, before spending money, if you can, try use another battery from another car or a friends car and try run it and see if it holds the charge, if its draining still and not charging then its your alternator, it will need to be replaced or rebuilt. only two things that will cause the battery to not hold charge.

You have a bare wire short some where. Look around the alternator and starter. Also look and smell for smoke or burn rubber smell.
