Hi ..... Charge the battery fully, take a reading (good battery 12.5 - 12.8) and start the bike, Place a multi meter across the battery, with the bike running it should show a reading of 13.2 - 14.2. If the system is charging then it's your battery .............. least time I've had out of one was exactly one year of use on a Harley, eight days out of the warranty period. If you leave the battery overnight then take a second reading in the morning, it'll tell you if it 'bleeds' overnight or at rest. If you've got extras like heated grips, radio etc, make up a simple test bulb with two leads, disconnect negative lead and place one lead onto negative lead and second onto frame. If bulb glows or illuminates when ignition is off you have something the wrong side of the ignition draining the battery.
Good Luck ! ............ let us know how you get on.

My 99 pontiac montana van misses and backfires then quits and runs battery down


Missing is usually ignition problems

Backfiring-timing issues or possibly lack
of fuel

Repeated dead battery that is over 4 years old
you have to replace.


I would first change the spark plugs & then
suspect a timing chain issue

Just have to go over the entire engine, one item
at a time

You can not just shot gun the problem or expect
an internet guess

The vehicle has to be looked at & things tested

With the engine running are you getting any voltage off the alternator? check with a multimeter. Check voltage at battery while running should be 13 volts or more.

Battries dries out soon.


I've done a bit of research on this and am finding from my own experience with my powershot that it's the battery that is the issue. Not all rechargeable batts are equal. There are several cheap rechargeables that don't hold charges. Stick with a name brand battery. Canon makes brand batteries, Energizer etc... but I have found that the my cheaper batteries-even if they're rated a higher capacity, have been the let-down. It is an investment for the good batteries but it pays off when you don't miss the shots you want to take... K

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V

My 81 gl 1100 wont hold a charge why pleeeez help


Sounds like you battery is shot. Could your battery have been exposed to below freezing weather while not fully charged?? If so you likely froze it this winter and have buckled the plates, If that's a possibility replace it.
