Get your stater checked out. your stater is just like an altinator but is inside the engine. you will need to go to a shop to have this done.

Did you check to output of the regulator/rectifier and stator?
Have you repaired the main earth connector 6 inches from the battery? these need to be removed and the wires permenantly joined by crimping and soldering.

I would check the continuity between the 3 yellow wires going to the regulator from the stator, it should be zero on all, make sure key is off. then if this is ok start the bike with the wires on and check the battery voltage as you rev it up you should get 14 volts if this is ok then you do not need to change the stator.

89 chevy shuts off after 30 sec of being jump start


I suggest that you have a load test done on the battery as from your description there is a dead cell . Coming to a stop is when the engine is idling and the output of the alternator is below that required to supply current to the ignition system. With a dead battery and jump starting it is possible that the CPU program is corrupted so after you fit a good battery use a scanner to reset the CPU program

New battery keeps going dead when car shut off overnight


Sounds like a slow drain - like a dome light or short in the wiring.
If the battery stays charged when it is disconnected, you'll have to check for a power drain in the car.

Resolving battery dying out and discharge light dosen't come on?


Discharge light will actually only come on when the alternator is not putting out its normal 13.5 - 14.5 volts. Sounds to me your alternator is fine, your battery has some dead cells, and will go dead soon as you shut off your engine. Battery is not accepting the charge the alt. is giving it. New battery is needed.

84 camaro good battery and alt so the part store says but after one start battery is dead have all new wires ?


Battery is only used to start engine.
after charging battery, start car. remove Negative cable, if car dies, wiring to alternator is faulty.

if continues to run, shut off car and all accessories. install ammeter between Neg. cable and battery, if it shows a draw, pull fuses one by one to find circuit with draw while car is off.

1993 buick lesabre shut off while driving,battery was dead then bought a new battery drove well for 3 weeks then shut off while driving again had to jumpstart it.


Your alternator is bad. It's not recharging the battery as you are driving. The car is using battery voltage until it is all used up and then the engine dies. Replace the alternator and recharge the battery.

2002 S80 T6 engine fan will not shut off when ignition is shut off thus draining battery


Some cars are simply wired in a manner to run the cooling fan with the key off and the doors locked in order to keep underhood temperature from climbing way too high for plastic engine parts to survive.

Usually there is not a problem with a dead battery because the fan switch will shut off the fan hours before the battery dies. If your battery is dead after such an episode it's more likely that you need a new battery than anything is basically wrong with the logic or operations of the fan switch. But it won't hurt to check the operational temperature if that is needed.

If you re-wire the switch to only operate when the key is on then you run the risk of over temperature on all your plastic parts under the hood. Some high dollar engineer has staked his/her reputation on having the wiring as it IS. It bugs the heck out of me too but maybe it's better to live with it?

2004 dodge durango engine shuts off while driving


I had this happen to me before. My battery had went out and I had put another in (didn't buy a new one-- it was holiday). It did this exact thing to me. The scary part is once, it was on the interstate going about 75 mph... didn't die but all gauges went to nothing. It turned out that the battery I was using didn't have enough cold cranking amps and was pulling down the alternator too much so the computer shut it down. The one time it didn't... it was because the RPH's were too high. Try checking the battery and alternator... make sure you have the right battery and have an alternator shop test your alternator if the battery is good.
