Solinoid should not do this. Make sure all electrical is off when you park it. Lights will fool you. Check to make sure key is turned off. Check the rectifier. Hoe this helps

SOURCE: Put new battery on 14

The generator is under the flywheel with or part of the ignition coil.

Check all the battery wiring and grounds. A bad or weak connection will act the same way.

Have a 1994 camry xle a 1997 lexus motor was put in it v6 3000 4 cam 24 the battery goes dead after about two days when the battery is charged it hard to start the starter clicks several times before


You either have a bad battery or something is draining it. A good way to test for this is to remove the pos battery cable from the battery. touch the cable to the battery post to complete the connection. If you hear something pop on, hum, buzz or click, it is staying on draining the battery. Your local auto zone, or advance auto ect will test your battery for free

Dead battery


You have a random electrical short in the system and it is on the acc. side of your ignition system.Systems such as interior lights, glovebox light, brake lights, memory circuits for onboard computer, radio and some aftermarket components. Without me being able to see your car it is very hard to determine the cause. First determine that the battery is dead. Its possible that the battery cables have a bad connection, not at the battery but at the starter sol. or the battery cable ground connection on the engine. Clean these connections to see if you fixed it. If not then after that you will need to remove the poss. battery cable take a volt ohm meter and put the black lead to the poss. post of the battery and the red lead to the cable, set the meter to 10 amps BEFORE you hook it up. Then wate until all systems have timed out when this happens the needle will drop. If not then you have a direct short. If it does drop it should drop to less then 2 amps (that is normal) if it is above that you have a drain on the battery. Before you start this test make sure the key is out of the ign. then remove the interior light fuse that way you can open the doors without resetting the timers. Watch the meter and remove one fuse at a time, if the needle drops then that is the circuit that is giving you the trouble. Find out what that fuse controls and repair as needed. Hope this helps. Let everyone know if it did OK

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

Car won't start gave jump start but it only clicks after i take the cables out battery die again??


  • If it starts with the aid of a jump start and dies as soon as the jumper cables are removed then your battery clearly needs replaced.

  • When you put the new battery in you can have someone start the car for you and then you can remove the positive cable off of your battery (while the car is running). If the car stays running turn the defrost on and the headlights and this is called testing the alternator under a load.

  • The alternator should support the functions of the car and the car running with no support from the battery. The battery is only for starting the vehicle.

  • If during this entire test the car stays running then the alternator is good. If the car dies at all the the alternator is bad and needs replaced.

  • If you have any comments please free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Battery is being drained by something, its new


2 things, not enought cold cranking amps, or while you where trying to start the car the brushs inside the starter caused a ark on the armature causing the starter not to be working at 100% option 1 have a drain test done or 2 replace the starter the drain test will show how much amps its taking to spin the starter if its pulling a high amount of amps/votage to spin the start then replace starter

91 Accord LX 2 dr 4 cyl just put new battery with 5oo cold cranking amps-NO Start! Owner said car has had perpetual problems holding a charge and starting! About 3mo ago Owner charged the old Die hard...


If you manage to get it started, check the alternator output...I'm betting it is bad. Should be making no less than 12.5 with accessories all on, 13.5 to 14 with just engine running. Bad alt can drain battery even when off depending what failed inside it. Towing with a chain is not really a good idea. the cross pin in those differentials are not very good and can fail.

Electrical


If you have a volt meter check to see if there is a drain on the battery when the car is off, you can then pull each fuse to see which circuit is causing the draining. Sounds easy, but I have also seen cases where somone left change (a penny) in the cigarette lighter causing a short cirucit.
