    Service electrical system warning came on and all the interior lights turned of. Then the car died. Is it an alternator problem? I can still jump the battery off and drive a couple of miles untill it dies again.

I had to replace the battey in my CTS 3.6L after only 18 months and 14,000 mi. There is a very high electrical demand on this batter and the engine compartment gets quite hot which kills the battery. Have your dealer it with the highest capacity and longest life battery that will fit. It should be under the new car warranty for 3years or 30,000 mi.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

96 olds cutlass ciera sl wont hold charge with new battery and alternator


Well the charge light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
You would need to get the alternator and circuits tested on the car.
It could be a bad connection somewhere or other wiring problem.

Charging system problem. Have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose
your vehicle.

Sounds like your alterator has malfunctioned and is not charging the battery or providing electrical energy to the vehicle.

Need to check battery condition first. Is it the original battery? If yes chances are it needs to be replaced. May have a dead cell or 2 & will not hold a charge. When it ran before this, was the check battery/charging light on? Also verify charging system is working correctly.

THE CAR LIGHTS WERE LEFT ON,NOW IT WONT START THE HAZARD LIGHTS COME ON BUT NO OTHERS I GOT A BOOST BUT IT STILL WONT WORK


It's possible that your battery has died. Depending on how old it is, they tend to last 4-5 years, anything beyond that and just replace the battery.

First thing to do is charge the battery overnight using a proper battery charger and try it again. If it won't hold a charge then it's likely time to change it. In the event the booster cables weren't hooked up properly you may have further electrical issues. Check all fuses and relays. Good luck.

Your battery may not be holding its charge. Charge the battery and take a voltage reading. Then after a few hours take another reading andsee if the voltage has dropped. If that is alright, refit the battery to the car. turn off all the electrics anddo a voltage test. If the battery is discharging then ou will have to find what componant is drawing the voltage. I normally check the boot through the rear seats first.
