My battery went flat !

What was connected to it, was it charged and then connected to some unit and went flat or went flat after charging, by itself?

If its new and was unconnected after charging return it to the seller for an exchange.
If it was connected to an vehicle or some other object and just went flat then you have a short circuit somewhere .

The battery was running the car's electrical system but not getting charged when the engine was running, indicating a problem with the alternator or charging circuitry.

Mitsubishi lancer battery keeps going flat is there any common cause for this? brand new battery went flat within 2 days


Interior light or inside hood light. Sometimes an alternator can short inside and drain a battery. A pinched wire touching a ground.

The battery on my 2000 Porsche Boxster is dead and the car is locked. How do I access the interior to release the hood?


The easiest way is to buy a cheap battery charger, one that plugs into your cigarette lighter socket. Allow the battery to charge for a few hours and then release the trunk when it has come up enough. The most likely reason for your battery going down is a faulty alternator. I just went through this problem with a friend. He bought a new battery and it went flat over night. He replaced the ignition switch (common problem), still went flat over night. Even though the alternator was charging great when the car was running, it was drawing current when the car was parked. We ended up getting a brand new alternator off ebay for $135., the dealer wanted $1900., local parts stores about $500.
The alternator was pretty easy to install and it solved the problem.

if there is no charging then its back to the alternator or the way its hooked up? did you recharge your flat battery with a mains charger after it went flat the first time? as no alternator will charge a battery from flat to fully charged,,,,even if you drove around the world none stop! the new alternator may have given up working becouse you overloaded the voltage regulator trying to recharge a flat battery witch would mean it was very week to start with?

Short battery life


Use the best name brand batteries you can find. Energizers and Duracell work best. Chance the size of your pictures to the smallest you can. At 300 X 300, you can still make 8 X 10 enlargements clearly. The larger the pic, the more power it takes to process it.

Yes, this sounds like a flat battery. You could try to get a jump start off someone else, so that you know it is definately not the engine. Otherwise, purchase a new battery and you should be fine.

Battery going flat on car daewoo leganza 1997


hi for a battery to go flat means your altenator isn't doing its job in charging it. all cars are different but it has to charge at a certain rate in order to keep it going. if the charge rate is very low then yes the battery wont last. if alternator is ok then possibly a wirring fault somewhere.
