    1996 Ford Taurus LX Station Wagon - just put in a new battery and new alternator. It starts and runs fine if driven everyday but just left it parked over the weekend and it will not start this morning. Something must be draining the battery - any ideas?

Mine did the same thing, but i put a new alternatoron it and found that I have an serious electrical drain. I narrowed it down to a relay in the fuse box under the dash. The manual claims it is a "battery saver relay"....any ideas on why this would be draining my battery? I replaced the relay but it didnt help.

Need to recharge the battery,fully,start the car,and check the charging voltage at the battery with a voltmeter, to verify that the alternator is charging the battery properly.If the alternator isn't working (charging) then the battery will go dead again.Charging voltage at the battery with the engine running should be minimum 13.5 volts up to about 14.5 volts.Battery voltage with the engine off should be minimum 12.5 volts.

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,


The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

I have 1998 Chevy Silverado with over 200,000 miles. One morning I started it up just fine, backed out of the drive way, and it just died. I turned the ignition to off, and turned it back on and parked it....


Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.

Doesnt always start, but lights, radio, AC/heat does come on.


First place to check is the battery. Old ones can push your lights , radio, etc, but the starter is the real load. . Can verify this by using jumper cables to a running vehicle and watch your machine fire right up! The reason mornings are the worst, is the battery has had the most time to discharge, and it is probably cooler outside.
