If the battery is holding a charge and is testing out okay then the other possibility is that something in your car is drawing a current. You have a short somewhere or something staying on that shouldn't be that is drawing current and amps that is killing the battery. Sometimes aftermarket stereo systems end up having a wiring issue which is the culprit.

96 accord losing water underneath, not the hoses

Hi , this could be a possible cause from a worn water pump bearing? Is it coming from the belt side of the engine?

i recommend getting a pressure test done on the cooling system at a decent garage, they should be able to help you out. Dont go to main dealer, use a local garage. They may help keep cost's down if you cant do it yourself? Hope this helps.

My 99 plymouth neon will not keep a charge. The battery is a month old and was re-tested and it is fine. I also had the alternator tested and it was fine. Any suggestions?

Even though the alternator was tested , it was probably tested for a charge. I dont know if you removed it and had it bench tested or had it checked in car. You may have a draw in your electrical system somewhere. It could bae a bad diode in the alternator or it could be a glove box light staying on or a trunk light staying on.Or or or ? All of these things require testing each circuit.What you can do to see if you have a draw on the battery when you shut it off is to remove the negative battery cable and place a 12v test light from the negative battery cable to the negative battery post. If the light comes on you have a power draw in your system somewhere. If you dont have a test light you can pick one up at your local parts house. You dont need anything fancy just a cheap one will work fine. The things above are the most common. Depending on how many miles or should I say starts you have on your car you might take a look at your ignition switch and make sure it is turning off all the way before you pull the key out. Sometimes the key gets worn and does not need to go all the way to the off position before it can be pulled out.

96 lhs has drier leaking can the seals be replaced , do i need to remove/ replaced the drier ?

Yes you can replace the seal only,Its only a bag in there that attracts moisture, do you need to replace it not really,Just replace the seal and ensure there is no leak.But if you open the system you ll need to draw out the air before you refill with freon

Honda accord 2005 consistently the battery is going bad. now it wont start and the lights and all the electrical work I dont think its the battery. it clicks when y ou turn itover

charge battery.Take battery to your local autoparts and have them load test it if bad replace if good reinstall in car. take car to parts store have them test voltage running it should be 14 volts or better while running if not replace alternator. this should cure problem. while there have them check draw of voltage from starter.usually their is no charge for this type of testing. I know Autozone does it free.please check good review for me if you found this helpful.

92 Accord Battery, Alternator, Battery Cables and fuses changed out. Battery is being drained dont know what else it could be...Help me please!

sounds like you have done more work than needed I wouldn't have changed your alternator, waste of money

1st check your battery with a multimeter (go digital if you can) theses are very cheap to buy, and you will use it a lot, set it to volts DC as per instructions start car and connect multimeter probes or clips to appropriate battery termianals, read display it shoud be 13.8 volts,, you now know battery cables and alternator are fine,, disconnect battery and do the same with multimeter on the battery again, leave sitting and watch reading if it goes below 12 volts over an hour your battery needs replacing.. If all good check when the battery terminals are back on tight and clean put the multimeter probes on termianls and ignition off and watch to see if reading starts to drop, if nothing turn ignition to accessories with everything turned off and again watch meter,, its a long process If you find it is still draining then pull a fuse at a time and check meter each time, if still dropping put the fuse back in and pull another one out.... repeat process till found........ before you start check glove box light isnt staying on, boot/trunk light is going off, ( put someone in there if you cant see) ,, If you have put in an aftermarket stero it may draw to much and you may have to upgrade your system, start with checking your battery

Cant find bleeder valve foe coolant system on 96

dr_greg is incorect. The bleeder valve is on the thermastat housing near the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the the engine. Look for something that looks like a 12mm head nut with a metal nipple comming through it. If you change your coolant but do not open this valve untill coolant flows from it you may cause an air pocket to remain in your engine, possibly causing your car to over heat.

Info panel by gear shifter is not working anymore 96 grand cherok

the info center was not working in my 96 jeep when i got it. it serves no major purpose other than a clock and to let you know when your doors are open. i replaced mine the part itself can be found at junkyards fairly cheap. i paid $65 for mine. and now i wish i had left it alone. constant annoyances and chimes.
