Your going to need to check for lights staying on like glove box light or hood light, look around and see if you can find something on. the next step would be to hook an amp meter to battery and look at the draw on the battery, if it goes dead in a few days then you will see a draw on the meter, with the meter connected you will then start pulling fuses one at a time until you see the meter drop to .02 or .03, this reading is normal, it will never go to 0. the clock and radio memory always draw a small amount and the computer also even with the key off, when you locate the fuse that stops the draw then find out what that fuse controls and start unhook those components one at a time until you locate the problem, hope this helps good luck.

You can start by disconnecting the battery ground cable, connect a 12 volt test lamp between the cable and the battery post, If it lights up you have a short. and you'll need to start pulling fuses one at a time until the test lamp goes out. at that point you will know where to look for short.

Why alternator don't charge on a 1979 ford thunderbird?


If you can use a new wire and they charge the battery then most likely you have a broken wire in the harness that runs between the alternator and the regulator.

Hi my hyundai getz 2003 1,3gl model left lights on killed battry kick started it drove it and left to idle for about 30 minutes switch it off and now still not starting battry or the immobilzer


If everything was ok before you left your lights on then the battery needs a full charge! The battery will not receive a full charge by idling, to charge the battery you need to take it on a long run in top gear such as a motorway for about 15 to 30 minutes!

Why do i have to charge the batt. every two to three days


The simple answer is the alternator is not charging the battery, or you have something draining the battery when the engine is off.
Have you checked the alternator output with a meter ?

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.

WHY DOES MY 1997 DODGE STRATUS STALLS


if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.
