Your starter may be getting hot from the headers. Once the starter gets hot it is usually hard to start and it will also make your starter go bad eventually.

2009 451 Passion. Why a frequent dead battery?


That is definitely wrong, not normal. Voltage should stay at 14 volts or near that until the battery is close to fully charged, then will slide down to about 13.5 volts, and stay there while engine is running. Also, a fully charged battery should show about 12.6 volts at a minimum, especially a new battery.
I don't know what is going on with your system. Take it back to Merc- were they aware of how it is acting, voltage-wise? Doesn't sound like it. One small possibility: is your alternator belt not tight enough?

I own a 1995 Toyota 4 wheel drive 4 runne that I use only to drive to the beach and back which is about a 5 minute drive. Occasionally I use it to haul something from Home Depot. Over the past 3 weeks, it...


To begin with, you\'re not driving the vehicle enough - five minutes isn\'t usually enough time to recharge the battery after a start, so if you repeatedly start it but give it only a few minutes to recharge, the cumulative drain on the battery gets to be too much.



It\'s a lot like working hard every day but eating only one boiled egg for supper every evening after work - you can do that for a while, but eventually you run out of reserves.



Short drives are also terribly hard on the engine. If it never gets up to full working temperature, it also never gets properly lubricated inside, and so wears out much faster than it should. I\'d recommend driving it no less than fifteen minutes every time (EVERY time) you use it.



All that said, you may also have a bad alternator fuse. It\'d be in the fuse box under the hood, and it should be a fairly large one. With nothing but short drives, I wouldn\'t be surprised if that fuse is also blown; when the battery gets too low, the alternator has to work really hard trying to charge it back up. If the alternator has to work really hard EVERY TIME (because the battery\'s low and never gets charged all the way back up after your short drives), it\'s pretty likely that the fuse will weaken and blow.



Again, if you find a bad fuse there... after replacing the fuse and recharging the battery, drive the vehicle more. Not more often, but keep it running longer when you drive it.

999 ford taurus if it sits for 2 or 3 days the battery is dead how do you track a short


Use a volt meter or test light, disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery post. If the meter reads 12 volts or if the test light is lit start pulling one fuse at a time until the meter reads zero or the test light goes out.

Make note of what circuit the fuse protects then start working your way back from there. It cold be as simple as a dome light being left on but you need to narrow down where the problem may be located.

I hope this helps, good luck!

2003 honda civic driver side window fall down


I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes.
Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt".
I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains.
I hope it helps.
