Hi Prue84,


Check to see if your Brake light switch is stuck. When you get out of the car, go to back and look to see if any lights are on. This will kill your battery in a few hours.  The Orion Xtr12 has nothing to do with killing a Battery.

Battery on ford Eco sport keeps going flat only light on is pats alarm flashing could this be a drain

unlikely that the led would flatten the battery
I would be having a load test done on the battery as it may be discharging internally or give you the impression that it is flat because it will not produce the current needed to spin the starter
other pointers to check are the output from the alternator and if it is dc volts , voltage regulator , belt condition and tension
failing that put an amp meter in the circuit for the ground and see what current is flowing
Items of high current draw are bulbs ( glove box, boot, interior light), faulty diode to the alternator, fans, big amphilers left on and faulty ECM and light relays

My alternator is not charging my battery, and both the aternator and battery are brand new and tested positive on the bench tests... Any ideas?

The early GM products would build up restance in the wire that went from the alternator to the starter. The easy cure for this is to install a 10 guage wire directly from the Alternator Batt. lug directly to the battery postive post. Do this using the correct end connectors.. do not just wrap the wire around the termanel. This was a big problem on these cars. especially the Diesel cars. Always disconnect the battery ground terminal before you work on this.

Laptop date and time setting get disturbed automatically when i reboot my laptop

When you boot up and the Date & Time is wrong then you correct the Date & Time, then when you shut down and boot up again the Date and Time has changed. This is an indication that the BIOS battery is flat and you need to replace the BIOS battery. Install a new BIOS battery, go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and the new battery will keep your settings stored in the BIOS.

When my vehicle is parked for a few days it will not start. I charged the battery with a batery charger. The van started. Next day it would not start. So i bought a new batery.It starts now no problem. How...

You may not have needed to buy a new battery, depending on the age of the battery and the year of the vehicle. I have owned these mini-vans for over ten years now and one problem they seem to have is build up under the positive battery post. This is usually an oxide of some kind building up on the battery post from the battery acid and then isolating the battery cable end from making contact with the post. All I've ever had to do is clean the battery post and cable end and tighten it back up and it works fine. Battery post treated washers (red and green) help this as well as putting battery terminal grease on the cable end once installed to keep corrosion from building up again.

If you have a side post battery situation you'll need to take the battery cable off the battery and clean up the bolt with a wire brush and inside the battery connection with a small wire brush kind of like a bottle brush since the threads are not very big. After cleaning apply a "thin" coat of dielectric grease. This grease is conductive and will give a better contact and keep corrosion away.

2001 boxter s ,can not keep the battery charge

replace or renew ??chances are that if secondhand you have someone elses long does it take to run battery down?? have you disconnected battery and put an amp meter between cable and battery terminal to measure discharge ,does battery still go flat when disconnected .do you have a big amplifier in the boot .chances are you have answered your own with elimination as the one thing that can cause a battery to discharge is a diode in the is a radio /interior light or boot light ,amplifer in boot for the sound ,,now if the battery goes flat disconnected then renw the battery .or drain the acid out then flush it out with a hose ,swill with distilled water then refill with acid ,sounds drastic but it often works as a bit of paste can short a plate across.have a play because thats all a mechanic would do.And as for a dealer chances are that if you changed these parts yourself then they would not be very coperative to say the least .
