More than likely it is a battery on it way out or the stator or pulse coil is starting to go.

Your battery may have a weak or dead cell thats drawing the charge out of the good cells...i would check this first. A fully charged battery will show 12.44 to 12.6 volts on a digital multimeter. You can check the charge of the indivual cells with a hydrometer. Make sure your battery terminals are clean and secure...the ground to frame will corrode and make poor contact over time.
Good luck...i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya

Car doesn't start


try using a volt meter after you shut it off and watch the meter and see if it drains,which would mean something is still drawing power when the car is off,then try removing fuses one at a time too possibly narrow down where the draw s coming from.if the battery is new then it should not have a bad cell which could cause it too drain.

Have a problem with my car chevy van g20 the battery is new and the alternater the car runs all day but when the next day comes the battery is dies and i have to charge the battery help with some idea


You have something draining power that should be switched off, or a short to ground in the wiring. If you disconnect the battery it will probably still be charged in the morning.
Someone would need to pull fuses and disconnect components to find the power drain while watching the battery with a meter.

Check the connecter of you battery. There's a good chance your battery connecters are loose, or another problem with your battery connecters.

Battery dains when not running


The battery current draw may be caused by a few things, here are some to check: the most common is that a light stays on like the dome light, the brake l;ights may be staying on,aftermarket accessories can cause it as well, audio amplifiers or stereo equipment or aftermarket alarm systems, very common.

96 ranger will not keep charge has new battery new alt. and if I jump it off it will run fine for a few days sometimes a week but when I go to start it's just dead. Any help plz.


Check the battery voltage when the vehicle running on idle, it must between 13-15 volt.
Check the battery voltage on full electricity load (turn on headlight, A/C, radio, wiper), it must between 12,6-13,8 V, If the voltage under 12V, check the radiator fan and radio/power amplier

The battery in my 2001 A6 2.7T won't hold a charge for more than a few days. The battery is approximately 5 years old. The voltage meter shows a charge of 15 or higher when the car hasn't been run in a few...


It looks like your charging system is operating properly so there are two possibilities. The first is that there is a large drain on your battery while the engine is shut off. Possibly a light left on somewhere like the trunk light or the glovebox light staying on when it should be off. There are other drains that may be occuring which will need a test meter and time to discover. The other likely cause will be a dead cell in your five year old battery. Have the battery tested and you will find that one or more cells are bad, causing the battery to drain. A five year old battery has about used up it's time in your car. good luck!

The car is a 1992 cadillac deville you can drive the car fine but when you go home and don't drive the car for a few days the battery goes dead and you haft to charge the battery and then the car works...


It doesn't have a short. Shorts blow fuses. It has high parasitic drain. On a cad it might be hard to find but not impossible. Do you own an ammeter?
