If your battery is older than 3 years and you live in an extreme warm or cold envirnment, chances are one of the cells is dead. You will need to replace the battery if it wont hold the charge. Also bring the vehicle to an autozone or advanced auto parts store and have them do a free diagnostic on the alternator and voltage regulator. If the alternator is bad then that could also be your problem where the battery wont stay charged. A rule of thumb is that if you replace the alternator you should also replace the battery so as to avoid the new alternator from working overtime to try to bring up the charge on an old battery. These auto parts stores can also do a load test on your battery to see if it needs to be replaced free of charge.

Why does my battery stay on in 2004 mitsubishi galant


Question is kind of vague. I think your saying your battery light is staying on and your battery is not charged.I would have to say your alternator is not working.

Charged battery light stays on


11v is too low, should be over 13v, check the battery for low water if it's not a sealed one, refill if necessary to bottom of the fill ring, then charge battery. If you have a battery hydrometer tester, all the cells should then test about the same, if not and one or more cells show weak, the battery is shot. If you have no equipment, most chain auto parts stores will test it for you free, if you jump start it, and can get it there, they will also check the charging system, (alternator, belts, etc.)

the battery wont stay charged? if youre putting in a fully charged battery and your car runs, but then the battery slowly dies, the problem will be your alternator. the alternator is what maintains a car batteries charge. try replacing the alternator. hope this helps.

Battery will not stay charged


Check the battery strength and then double check your alternator to make sure it's charging.. I installed 3 alternators, new off the shelf, on one vehicle, and all three were duds (4th one worked fine). If the battery does not need replacing, and the alternator is charging, double check and make sure no components are left on such as a light in the glove box.

The alernator does not appear to be charging the battery,the car has not been used for three weeks,battery has been charged but battery light stays on,can this problem be fixed easily?


It sound's like the battery need's to be replaced, the alternator can't be checked without the car started, to check the alternator measure the voltage across the battery, it should read higher than the battery voltage. if the voltage on the battery stay's at 12 volt's with the car started the alternator is bad.
