My 08 equinox has had a dead battery four times and I have had to call roadside and take to the dealer. They have nothing wrong. Why won't it stay charged? I never leave anything plugged in, nor is the radio on. It had 13, 300 miles, it very discouraging to have spent so much and not have a dependable car.

98.3hombre battery went dead after a jump it wont start


double posted, why?
JUMPS OK
AFTER JUMP WORKS AND DRIVING, AND STOP AND KEY OFF
IT WILL NOT CRANK.
did i guess right?
that means ,
check all fuses first. even the alt fuse (large)
1-battery bad? #1 top failure all cars.
2-Charge system bad. (is the charge/ batt warn lamp glowing when running car, bingo.????

3-or phantom drains. (if no crank just after stall then it not this) if drains while sleeping yes.

the tests are easy, a dirt cheap voltmeter
13.3v to 15v running is good charge system.
if 12v and falling not.

if the battery is bad, the charge system can shut down, so, the best practice is to try a know
good battery out of 2nd car, do you have battery to barrow, this is TOP CHOICE< not thinner wallet.

if the good battery fails then the charge system is failing (note I said system and not a part)
or the belt missing or slipping to the alternator.

btw the 4.3L PCM runs the alternator
PCM is engine brain.
btww, same true 2.2l engine.
the regulator is in the PCM.

so is the charge/bat lamp in cluster
on key on, lamp test
the jump start it , it runs
does the charge./batt.lamp go out.
id be all over that lamp, costs nothing to look.

08 impala car wont start radio works, lites work wont turnover @ all just clicla once


New battery will solve your problem. Battery is close to the end of its life (4-5 years). I would highly recommend changing the new maintenance free batteries at the 4 year point.

Turn ignition wont start killing the battery


Hello,This almost sounds like the Alternator stopped charging, and you used up the battery to the point the vehicle died and will not start.The reason I think this is, is because the lamps and accessories work until you attempt to start. Then all goes blank. The accessories may pull, what 20 amps if all are turned on, a starter will pull 200-350 depending on the condition of the starter. IE; the starter is sucking the life out of the battery.I would verify that all battery connections are clean and free of "acid hair" the white powder the grows on the terminals, and it has a full charge. If not, have it charged and get the charging system checked.

My car wont start, dash lights been dimming last few days. it clicks but wont turn over. the alternator was replaced about 10 months ago.


It sounds like the alternator may have been a used one and possibly had a short life. The dimming of the lights is usually a sign of a bad alternator. Nevertheless, check the battery, but I think it may be the alternator. It still could be under warrantee.

Car wont start in cold weather...think it may be


Will it start with a boost? Have you had battery fully charged and load tested? Battery tested at a garage, or autoparts stores, are usually free.

Car wont start


Fully charge battery remove and take to a shop, bench test the battery. If its not the battery remove the starter and bench test it, its either the battery or the starter.

My car wont start without a jump and cuts off from the a/c


1st thing to check is the battery. If you can still start the car, bring it to a parts store where they can do a free check of the battery and charging system (alternator). You may just have a battery that is at the end of it's life. Let me know what the store says, I'll help further if needed. Updates appreciated.
