No electrical power. The battery has a full charge. Main fuse is fine. What should I check next?

Left key in ignition and drained battery. Have since recharged battery but I still have no power. Besides the main fuse, what should I check next?

    Spark test the battery to see if it took the full charge. Use a piece of wire, coat hanger, anything that will reach both terminals. You want to see a really strong spark. Run a jumper cable from your car to the battery. See if you have power now.

    Ran cables, still no power. Have power to relay, but with a test light no power at main fuse.

There are 6 more fuses located under the engine cover on the right side (see owners manual). one of the 15 amp fuses protects the starter solenoid. This one could be blown. This can happen sometimes if a short occurs during battery replacement.

Could the ignition be draining my battery


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Check your charging system.
If parasitic drain with everything off, check amp draw. Check for any lamps left on somewhere, best time to check is in the dark.
Sometimes a battery can drain back through a faulty alternator? You can pull /replace fuses one at a time, when you pull the fuse on the problem circuit, the drain returns to normal.
I don't know your year--make--model?

Battery wont start the car ,ill charge the battery its ok for a few hours then its dead ,alt charging good ,battery is new,every fuse in both pannels are hot with key off please help


The battery dies after sitting for a few hours ? Parasitic drain on the battery ! With the key off all fuse's shouldn't be hot ! Bad ignition switch . Find a wiring diagram at www.bbbind.com an check power at ignition switch . Look on you tube , a lot of videos on basic electrical trouble shooting .

check the rectifier, make sure the battery is fully charged, and check the ignition coil, it could have fried due to electricity passing and not going anywhere, thus creating heat

I have full battery power but no power to my dash ignition lights when i turn key put have head lights and horn. on my 2008 chevy cobalt


Some cars have inline fuses in the battery cables and have multiple connections for components making one get power and others not. If all your fuses are good, the next thing to look at is the electrical part of the key switch. Usually there is the mechanical part with the tumbler, and the electrical part.

Runs fine for a wile then dies battery drained


Hi
A car battery can run down for any of several reasons:
  • You accidentally left the lights on or some other accessory that pulls power from the battery even when the ignition key is off.
  • The battery is not being recharged while the vehicle is being driven (you have a charging problem)
  • There is a key off parasitic electrical drain on the battery because a relay is sticking, a module is not shutting down, or there is a shorted diode in the alternator.
  • Your battery is old and will not hold a charge anymore. The battery needs to be replaced.
Most of the time if the battery is fairly new and keeps getting drained have the mechanic check the alternator if its charing the battery.
Thanks for using Fixya.

HI. It is possible that the battery has reached its life span, and may need to be replaced. If this is a new battery, the charging system may be malfunctioning. Use the procedure below to inspect the entire charging assembly for faults.

Wear protective eye wear and clothing and remove all jewelry when checking your battery and charging system. Jewelry is a good conductor of electricity and is not recommended. Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation. Automotive batteries have a +positive terminal (red), - negative terminal (black). Electricity is stored in the battery and then supplied to the vehicle when the engine is not running. While the engine is running the vehicles alternator charges the battery for future use. (Note: never disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If the battery cable is disconnected from the battery a spark can be generated which can cause the battery to explode or a major electrical malfunction to occur.)

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the +positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the - negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure)

The alternator is rotated by a drive belt driven by the vehicles engine while it is running. Electrical voltage and amperage are generated to recharge the battery and supply voltage to the electrical system of the car. The alternator is held in place with mounting bolts. There is a main electrical wire on the rear of the alternator that supplies voltage to a main voltage junction box. If your alternator is not charging properly, your battery will slowly drain down from operating all the electrical systems in your car and stop the car from running.(most non charge states will be the cause of a loose belt or a low tension rate, due to a mis-adjusted alternator. make sure you have enough tension in the belt for full rotation of the alt pulley)

Next, you will need to check the alternators output with the Amp meter.

Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, but if the voltage is low, it will still allow the battery to go dead. To check the amperage output of an alternator an amp meter is needed. Once the meter is connected start the engine. Next turn on all electrical accessories and raise the engine idle to about 1200 RPM. The alternator should output the max amperage it was designed to produce. Example: a 90 amp alternator should output about 88 amps. Note: An alternator cannot sustain maximum output for long periods of time. If the alternator is forced to operate at maximum output it will overheat and fail. An alternator is designed to operate at max amperage output only for a reasonable amount of time.

((Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.3 volts. If not the alternator may need replacing.)))

Now, if the charging system is ok, move on to the starter, and ignition switch. Use this procedure to inspect these additional areas.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.
