    My battery light came on when driving and then went out. Then the van started jerking--rapidly normal speed, then slow and back to normal, as I pulled off of the road. The digital gages were nonsensicle and rolling or flashing numbers (odometer etc). I turned off the car and it wouldn't start. Had it jumped but it took a while to charge the battery enough to start it. It was rough running at first and then finally smoothed to more normal sounding. After about 3 minutes it started running rough again and cutting out a ton, then backfired twice and died. Battery deader than a doornob. Is this the battery, alternator, motor, or???? Thanks!

1998 Plymouth Breeze Drains the battery

Check to see that the trunk light and glove compartment light actually turn OFF when the trunk and glove box doors are closed. Also, if one of the diodes on the alternator has failed, it may still test "good." With the car sitting, ignition off, fully-charged battery, check to see if the back of the alternator is HOT. If it is HOT, replace the alternator.

1998 mercury grand battery not charging put new alternator and battery still not working

Is the battery light on the dash board working? If the light does not work the alternator will not charge, it needs the power from the light to energise the rotor.

I have a Cadillac deville 1998 v8 northstar. I had my alternator rebuilt and got a new battery. Vehicle started once but dash read battery not charging. Took vehicle to O'Riellys Battery tested bad. H

When you replaced battery you activated the system. Need to read owner manual and see if it tells how to deactivate it. You may need to contact dealer to deactivate it.

My front air does not blow out (it works in the back). I changed the blower relay in the fuse box next to the battery and put in a new blower fan under the glove box but it still does not blow air out in...

Have you replaced the blower motor resistor? It's located behind the passenger-side in-dash glove box. That's what allows you to control the fan speed.

My heater/blower fan is stuck on high all of a sudden.

This is definitely the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor located behind the dash Glove Box.
Remove the Glove Box completely to access.
It is mounted onto/slightly into the fire wall and has 3 to 4-wires going into it. I believe there are two (2) 8-mm bolts holding it on. It is shape like a 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high.
Disconnected the negative side of the battery first
Unplug the resistor.
Remove and replace with new resistor.
Re-plug back in.
Reconnect the negative side of the battery.
Check operation before re-onstalling the glove box!

Air conditioner quit working after changing battery?

i had the same problem,to me it was the ac/heat door actuator,this turns a motor for the temperature contol, when its broken it ither stays at just one temperature or flips from hot to cold constantly , if it is this is its not a cheap fix. if you go to the dealer just the actuator costs you about $200 and labor is $800 they will tell you that they need to take the whole dashboard out and thats why it will take 8 hours. what i did was get one from the junkyard for $50 and install it myself,all you have to do is open the glove box and take out a 3-4 screwd weird shaped box (actuator) its a tight space but it posible to take out with out pulling the dash,it saves you $800. it took me about half an hour to change it.

Battery light

1st thing to check would be the alternator, to make sure it's charging the battery. If it's not, the red battery light would come on. Most major parts stores offer free battery and charging system checks, they can tell you if the alternator is not charging. Have it checked asap, as the new battery will be dead soon if it's not being charged. countrycurt0
