My 1997 Saturn sl2 has a problem with the battery dead after sitting for a month. I charged the battery and took the positive cable off and let it sit for a month and it still had a full charge. Something is draining the battery. I touched the cable to the battery and I hear a click noise along with a small spark.


your car will always have something being powered but its a trickle amount[computer-entry control[keyless entry]-radio memory-etc if ur going to let it sit for a month with battery connected yes your battery will more than likely be dead when u disconnect it ur also clearing all codes and memory in computer and components auto stores sell a trickle charger/maintain charge charger for long term storage there used for any type battery boats ,cars,atvs ,planes,etc the charger maintains the charge in a battery it goes on and off when needed

MY MAESTRO WILL NOT POWER UP


I had this problem. I fixed it myself. The gold connector inside where you plug the charger in was not making contact so it would not charge the battery. I opened my gps and with a small screw driver i pushed the gold connector out so it would make contact with the charger. It works great now. I found this out after buying new car charger, home charger and battery and it still would not charge.

(If you are charging you phone inside your house) First make sure you have power to the receptacle you are using. test this by plugging in a lamp or radio into the receptacle you will be using.

I own the same phone and I have found that the phone has a small rubber cover that goes over the charging port. It's hinged but I found that it has to be removed in order to charge it because the charger can't connect securely with the rubber cover on the phone.

(If your are using a mobile charger) I have observed that my phone has a short in the mobile charger also and changes the ring tone after I charge it. My phone rings 1/2 of the time and I have found that this is a fault of the mobile phone charger. It charges the phone w/o any problem but the connection from the mobile charger is loose. This shorts out something inside the phone and changes my ring tone automatically.
