My battery keeps going flat

You need to get the alternator checked as it keeps the battery charged. If you have a multimeter, then connect it to the battery with the engine running. It should show around 13 to 14 volts. If it shows 12 or so, then the alternator is not working.

Does the vehicle start?
If not, then check battery voltage. If below 12.5 volts, then recharge the battery and retest system charging voltage (should be around 14 volts)
If battery is fine and vehicle starts, then check fuse box and wiring loom connectors.

Hi im having problems with my altinator the light is on in the dash and my battery is going flat in one day. The altinator is charging at 8 and a half the car is an eb ford falcon station wagon 92 model...

Hi Jenny,
Your alternator should be recharging at 13.5 - 14 volts DC. I would say that is what makes your battery flat if you are only recharging 8.5 volts. Replacing the alternator would be indicated. Since that model car was only produced in Australia and New Zealand I dont know the availability of parts in your area. I did locate one on Ebay.AU for AU$188.00 with the shipping and could be posted to you. You may check your local auto garage as to the possibility of rebuilding the one you have......Mike

The battery keeps running died

bad battery or your alternator isn't supplying the recharge necessary to keep it charged, with the motor off you should have a reading of 12-12.5 volts at the battery , once started it should read between 13.5 and 14 volts if its not, Its the alternator

Will replacing the alternator belt on 2000 hyundai recharge the battery that has almost gone dead in 24 hrs of non use? Is this belt replacement expensive and or covered under hpp 4b?

not its not coverd under hpp, but if the belt is slipping it wont charge very well, also an alternator was never intended to recharge a flat battery only to keep it toped up,,, if its tottle flat it would be best to recharge it with a mains charger first as the alternator will never fully charge it from flat,, unless you drive around the world first??? it would take years to do it,,,if ever,,,charge the battery first with a mains charger

Keeps getting flat battery when parked overnight

could be the battery is not great and needs replacing,or else the alternator is gone and not recharging the battery properly,also make sure no lights are left on anywhere to drain the batt,,,if the alternator is good it should show 14 or more volts when tested with a multimeter any less it should be replaced,,,
