Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
I'M NOT GETTING ANY PROPER POWER FROM MY BATTERY 2 START MY CAR. IT WILL NOT TURN OVER, MY INSIDE LIGHTS ARE DIM, & MY BATTERY GAUGE, IS MOVING UP & DOWN WHEN I DRIVE. IT'S A NEW BATTERY, A NEW STATER, & I HAD MY ALTERNATOR CHECK SEVERAL TIMES. IT KEEPS READING GOOD. SO WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Have the battery tested to make sure it is charged up all the way. It may be new but something on the car could be draining it at night. A car I had contained an auto-leveling system that started to loose pressure and the pumps would run like 90 percent of the time and killed my battery several times.You should also check the terminals to be sure that the connections are good and tight. If you can wiggle it off by hand then it could be to loose. Any corrosion could also effect it as well. I have had alternators go out and the auto shop declare it good. Basically unprofessional high school kids that know how to cross reference a number and use a telephone is what we have around here in our auto parts stores, none with any idea what a muffler even is working there. Could also be the internal regulator inside the alternator malfunctioning. Sometimes they dont even catch that either. Could explain the ampre meter going crazy. Kinda doubt that though. Try jumping it off and see if the motor turns a fires. Hope anything helps .
