    best bet is ebay i provided the link but you need to have an ebay account if you dont want to make an account find someone who has one or try your luck at a retail outlet but you could get overcharged they can be a littly tricky to install if you are teck minded you should have no problems

My 2005 cadillac cats battery draining while driving. What could be the problem?

alternator is the likely cause. But a new battery should accept a charge so take the battery back and have the store charge it. But before doing that, be sure all contacts are clean near the battery. Make a solution of water and baking soda and pour slowly over terminals being carefully it does not go in the battery, then tighten connections. Scrape inside of battery connector. Then monitor voltage as you drive. Is it maintained at about 13.6 volts? do minor loads like turn signals or a fan on low affect it? If so, alternator likely culprit.

Plugged in not charging

If the laptop shows it's on AC when plugged into your card adapter, then it's the charging circuit on your laptop. But if the laptop shows that it's running on battery when plugged in, then the problem is with the car adapter.

If you happen to have a voltmeter/DMM, check the adapter to see what voltage is coming out of the barrel connector.

Playstation 3...Battery in controller is low, plug in controller

The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.

When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.

I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.

Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!

It wont turn no matter how long i charge it

does the orange light flash of a few seconds after you plug it in? If it does, I think that it is a battery problem. After a lot of charges, the battery's capacity decreases. If the orange light just flashes, I would try a new battery for ds lite battery or for a ds battery (both $8)

1997 Honda Civic EX power loss

start with the easy stuff. check the plugs. make sure they are not wet with oil leaking from the spark plug stem seals located on the rocker cover. Check your air filter to make sure its clean. Now for the slightly harder stuff. The spark plug wires should be changed every 80k or so. My suspect the reason for the power loss is most likely a clogged cat convert in the exhaust system. check your exhaust flow. Way to do that is to check the temp. of the exhaust before the cat and the temp. after the cat. If the Cat is plugged the temp before the catalytic converter will be abnormally higher than after the cat.

BUT if you are experiencing misfire of engine. I would go straight to replacing spark plugs and wires. Distributor cap and rotor.

Also check the charging system. make sure the alternator is charging the battery at above 13Volts. With all components on. ( radio/lights/highbeam/AC). Use a voltmeter and check at the battery positive and negative. if its not charging above 13 V replace the alternator.

good luck
