Sounds like a defective battery not a drain, have the battery tested by a auto parts store lioke Kragen or Autozone.

    1st a good battery puts out 12.5 volts, next when you turn on the ignition this loads the battery and drops the voltage, trust me you almost certainly have a bad battery, these small cycle batteries are good for around 2 years.

Starter on JD 2130 tractor quit.Put on new solenoid but still doesn't engage.12 volts at starter but only about 7 volts on ignition wire when you turn the key.What's wrong?

dead battery cell , bad ground on the battery
the battery can read 12 volts at rest but when the starter is engaged , in a bad battery , that voltage will drop to what you have and so the starter will not engage or turn the engine

Voltage draw down found!
1) repaced bad battery
2) rechecked voltage draw...

Voltage draw down found!
1) repaced bad battery
2) rechecked voltage draw still showing 12 volt drain with all under hood fuses, relays, and interior fuses and relays pulled.
3) Computer was the 12 Volt drain, & had to reprogram itself.
4) gave the new battery a good long charge, reinstalled the battery into the vehicle.
5) Hooked the battery up, pulled the keys out of the ignition, close and lock all doors with auto door lock. Waited minimum of 20 min so the computer would go back into the sleep mode.
6) after 20 minute wait, rechecked the voltage draw by removing the neg battery cable from the battery, hooking volt meter + lead to battery cable end, and neg lead to battery neg post, nothing showing or zero reading.
7) Hooked the neg cable up to battery, started the truck and let the engine idle to normal run temp, then fast idled 1200-1300 rpms for 2 minutes, then drove the vehicle for 5+ miles and alternating speeds. All appears back to normal now. Alt showing 14.2 to 14.4 volts, and no other problems.
After all of the afore mentioned, my problems began with a bad battery cell, thus caused my computer to have the memory reset.Until the computer was reset, I had a 12v continious draw down! I got this info from a repair manual, that I purchase sometime ago. Thanks for your alls help........EJB

Add 12 volt outlet switched by ignition

Look in your owners manual for the accessory fuse. That line turns off. Also, consider a 12 volt relay between the seat and your power source. A small toggle switch will work well for a relay.

  1. Electrical
    • 1 Remove the battery cover using the appropriate tool from the Triumph tool kit. Connect the red and black voltage meter clips to the positive and negative battery posts. Red is always positive. Black is negative and ground.
    • 2 Switch the voltage meter to 12 volts and check the reading. A fully charged battery will put out 12 to 14 volts. A reading of less than 12 volts indicates the battery must be charged. Batteries that have been inactive for long periods of time respond best to a slow, overnight charge. Remove the meter clips and charge the battery, if necessary, before proceeding.
    • 3 Refer to the workshop manual and locate the ignition coil. Connect the red and black meter clips to the positive and negative terminals on the coil. Switch the voltage meter to 12 volts and note the reading. Typical ignition coil resistance is 0.5 to 1.5 ohms, or about one volt. A lack of resistance indicates the coil must be replaced.
    • 4 Connect the red meter clip to the gray wire terminal on the back of the ignition switch. Connect the black clip to the head of a nearby bolt as ground. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position and note the meter reading. A reading of less than 12 volts indicates a problem with the ignition switch.
    Fuel System
    • 5 Close the fuel petcock using the selector lever. Depending on the year and model of the motorcycle, the petcock is located at the underside, or at one side of the gas tank. Trace the path of the fuel line from the petcock to the carburetor or the fuel pump.
    • 6 Remove the clamp where the fuel line connects to the carburetor or fuel pump using the appropriate tool. Position a glass jar under the connection. Pull the fuel line off and direct the end of the line into the jar.
    • 7 Open the petcock and observe the flow of fuel into the jar. A lack of a consistent fuel-flow suggests a clogged petcock or clogged in-line fuel filter. A consistent flow of fuel indicates a problem with the carburetor. Proceed to the final steps to troubleshoot a fuel pump.
    • 8 Close the fuel petcock. Reconnect the fuel line from the gas tank to the fuel pump and tighten the clamp. Remove the clamp that secures the fuel line at the output connection on opposite side of the pump. Hold the glass jar under the connection and pull the output line off the fuel pump.
    • 9 Open the fuel petcock. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position. A lack of fuel flow from the fuel pump output line indicates that the electrical fuse is bad, or the pump must be replaced.
      Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position and close the fuel petcock. Refer to the workshop manual for carburetor information, fuse replacement and fuel pump information.

What voltage should be delivered to the fuel pump on a 2001 Olds alero?? I'm reading 4.6 Volts (anticipated 12 volts). If 12 is required any suggestions on where to look for the decrease.

that's the voltage of the fuel sender unit, i.e. gas gauge. try the other wires. the power goes on for only 2 seconds so you'll need someone else to turn the key while you check this out

Installing remote starter what does run start posisition mean

When testing the polarity of the vehicle's main power wires for remote starter installation; the run position is the vehicle running. The ignition, accessory and battery wires should read 12 volts in the RUN position. This same group of wires should read 12 volts in the ON position. The ignition, starter and battery wires should read 12 volts in the START position. The accessory and battery wires should read 12 volts in the ACC position. The battery wire should read 12 volts with the key OFF.

How do you know if your alternator is going bad? and how do you know its not something else draining the car? like an after market raido it was instaled with a speed wire harness but i am getting a wierd...

An alternator going bad will drain your battery in a few hours of driving, and it will not recover. A battery going bad might give some trouble starting the car, but once under way, it will recharge, and work for many weeks until it finally dies. A bad connection on the 2 power cables to radio (ignition & live battery) will trip the corresponding fuse, so that is not the problem. You might have bad speaker connections, and it will sound like you describe, but it will NOT drain the battery. My best advice is 1) Disconnect the radio for a day or so, and see if the condition improves. 2) With a voltmeter, test the battery voltage just after shutting down the car. It should read 13-14 volts. Then test it one hour after that, and it should read 12-13 volts. Should voltage read below 12, then you have either an accessory draining the battery, or a short circuit.

84 CK TRK, 2500, 5.7L 55,000 miles have replaced alternator twice - battery still reads 12 volts. Trickle charge on battery OK and engine starts up OK - terminal 1 on alternator wire (brown) reads 2.4volts...

On some of the older style GM's you can take that brown wire and cut it and take the end leading from the alternator and hook it directly to the hot terminal on the alternator and just leave it hooked up and it will work. But I have ran into the occasional problem where leaving it hooked up will drain the battery when the vehicle isn't running. Hope this helps..
