Battery was dead. Charged it up. Mower starts and runs rough, surging and bucking. However, When I started it and disconnected the battery, it immediately smoothed out, running perfectly.....super smooth? What could it be?

One of the cells in the battery is probably not working, and the charge is leaking off.
That may be why you had to charge it.
A new battery should solve both problems.

Battery will not hold a charge. i charge it or jump it off and it will be dead the next time I use it. I even bought a new batter and it was drained when I went to use it again

It sounds like it has a short on it or the alternator isn't giving a charge. check the wiring for breaks... charge the battery up and get a altmeter to test if when running the battery is getting a charge, hope this helps

I have a 1997 BMW 528i that idles rough and now the check engine light came on. It idles rough, but when you press on the gas it runs smoothly. What could be the problem(s)? And the battery goes dead

Cars use the battery when they are not running. It is called parasitic drain. When the light comes on if you take it to a major autoparts stor like checker, advance or autozone, they can check it for free and tell you what the light means.

Engine wont start, BCM just replaced, inflatable restraint and check engine light on.

need to start with do you have any obd code with key turned on
caddy is more complex system than most , check fully charged battery, and not a jump start, and battery is in very good condition .disconnecting battery would only clear codes leaving you with nothing to go on hopes this is some help to you.

Okay, I have a Ariens, Sport Zoom, Zero Turn, 12 HP mower. The battery was dead. It has a built in kill switch for safety. If there is no weight on the seat the engine shuts down.The battery is located...

Hi Tina, yes you can do as you asked and this will bypass the seat switch. No there is no need to disconnect the battery as the wires are not live unless the mower is running. Regards Phil.

Mower runs great, problem is battery goes dead, its a new battery, i recharged it, measured the voltage at 13.41, started it, it measured 14.47 volts then drops a few decimals every minute like 14.42 after...

Try disconnecting the battery and note if the voltage drops.
If it does, the battery is not holding a charge.
If it keeps its voltage, the problem lies in a minor short in the mower.
You have to determine which item has the problem first.

Is this helpful?

Mower will run if jump started and continue to run but when turned off and back on will not start until jumped again.Meter does not show mower is charging

The battery needs to be checked.If its running with jump start this indicates that mower is fine but the battery is not supporting it for normal start.In some cases the battery has low charge so getting the battery charged helps.In some cases the battery is dead so battery needs to be replaced.And in some cases the battery is new ,its charged but actually the terminals from the battery gets rusted and do not get connected so this leads the problem.So check the battery,if its low on charge get it charged,if its not getting charged then replace the battery ,if its charged and new then clean its terminals and reconnect and check. But if battery is properly charged and connected properly ,then also you see the same problem then its fault in the starter and starter solenoid.It needs to be checked and replaced.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Battery draw down

Disconnect the battery. Charge the battery. Then let it sit idle for whatever period of time that it has been taking for it to go dead. Reconnect the battery & try to start it. If it is dead then the battery is bad, If it cranks OK then you have something drawing the current from the battery.
