You're going to have to test your alternator. All you have to do is start the car, while it's running, remove the negative battery cable. If the car continues to run, you have a problem with wiring. If it shuts off immediately after you remove the neg. cable, you're alternator is no longer working and this is why your battery light is on. The battery in your car's sole purpose it to start the car. After the car is running the alternator then takes over and sends power to everything to the car

My 99 Voyager is now possessed! We replaced the battery and checked the alternator. They are both good. checked for a draw on the battery and came back with a 42.9 amp draw. I cant keep the battery charged...


You made no mention of checking for the cause of the main
problem,the battery drain

Have you not used an amp meter to check for parasitic drains?

The battery light comes on ?
You can not have any lights on after the motor
starts

Checked Alternator how-that light has to go
out when the alternator is running

I have a 1999 chrysler cirrus and i jump started it and it started right up but when i turned the car off it wouldnt start again


took our kids 99 Cirrus to shop always had to jump the car. When mechanic was called he said he had traced a ground to under the fuse box.But now the car would not start or jump he said we need to reflash the computer. Took it to Chrysler dealer shop. They replaced distributor and computer 1300 dollars. They said it was fixed. Got the car back. Let it set for weekend. Tried to use it Monday morning would not start. Took the car back to dealership got a loaner vehicle. After a month dealership called and said the car had a bad battery. Now we had the kids replace the battery twice before we ever took it to the firsl shop. I think the car has a short draining down the battery and am considering a battery cut off switch to isolate the battery when not using the vehicle. Getting very discouraged and poor.

My battery keeps draining down at night it's a 99 dodge durango


you have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers

I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus. When it rains,


Check Battery, all battery connections, the ground from motor to frame and from battery to motor and or body. A poor ground connection can cause all kinds of problems. Also i had a car that would not start in high humidity that turnedout to be the starter. It was pulling too much juice from the battery at high humidity.

99 chrysler cirrus lxi won't shift out of 2nd, no speedometer


Had the same problem on my 1999 cirrus lxi. Replaced the output speed sensor on the tranny and topped off the tranny fluid... cleared the check engine light and the cirrus ran great. Caution...the output speed sensor reqires removal of the front left tie and plastic weatherproofing to replace. once you find it's locvation, the replacement is relatively easy.

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
