Draining the volts form my battery. Not sure what is causing this? I keep charging the batt. but when driven short distances, Battery not charging light keeps coming on ?


Hi, if the battery charging light keeps coming on and the battery is draining it almost certainly means that your alternator needs attention. It may be that the alternator belt is loose or is slipping or theremay be a fault with the alternator itself. A local garage should be able to help you rectify the issue quickly
Good Luck

Zte z990 phone keeps shutting itself off


Well, it really depends on many factors. I guess that you are using many apps at the same time (Background apps consume battery).

Another possibility is that your battery is asking for a retirement. Replace it and see if the problem persists. You may need to take it to the repairman.

Top Load Roper Washer 7 cycle 2 speed W10330949A Bought 2 months ago ..not hooked up right away either While machine is in the washing cycle...water keeps draining out and refilling. Also Water is...


The drain hose needs to be higher than the top of the water level and yes, there needs to be an air gap so the drain does not siphon. As far as temperature, the machine will automatically put in cold or hot water depending on the temps selected. You cannot get straight hot water from this machine...that is by design. You will have to live with the temps you are given...I know, it sucks!

Hi there - I wonder if you can help us, with the heavey snow today our 2 year old Kia Sportage wont move at all. After not using it all day our battery seems to be dead. I would appreciate any help or...


An good battery is not going to die from 1 day of not being used. And one cold day is not going to kill it either. Something drained it, I think you need to charge the battery and take it somewhere and have someone figure out what is draining the battery while the ignition is OFF. this usually turns out to be an anti-theft circuit malfunction which keeps locking/unlocking the doors.

Why does my tomtom go 730 not function when it is cold and how long should the battery work for


To my experience, battery capacity and life is very poor for the GO 730.
If brand new, the battery can last up to three hours but this degrades quickly. If its cold, the electrochemical process in the battery is slower, adding to the problem.
Also, switching off the TomTom does not really switch off, it goes to standby, still using a little power continuously. After a day or two this completely drains the charge.
I have my GO 730 since mid 2008 and battery is down to ten minutes of use after a full charge. In my car I use the provided car DC adapter, so I do not mind the bad battery too much.

FujiFilm A850 Clicking Noise... A900 Shutter Turns Itself Off?


It could be the cold affecting them but I suspect it's a battery problem.
If you use normal alkaline AA's then the camera will drain them fast. Try using the lithium type which has a higher Amh for use in high drain electronic gadgets like cameras.
The cold weather will affect things like cameras, especially when you bring them in from the cold after long periods. Condensation will form inside the camera and cause short circuits or component failure unless you allow the camera to aclimatise to room tempreture gradually before using it.
Condensation can also have an effect on the shutter inside the lens. It cannot evaporate well inside the lens unit because it is sealed and so leaves a residue on the shutter leafs that can cause the shutter to either stick or not work fully and you get either wavey lines on the pictures that you take or they come out over exposed or too bright.
Leave the camera for 24 hours at room tempreture and buy ( if you haven't already got) some lithium batteries and then try the camera

Audi A4 tail lights come on at night and drain my battery


its the sensor in the brake pedal, happens mostly at cold nights since cold weather loosens up the pedal it causes the pedal to go down by itself if like you were braking, I used to roll up the matt and put it underneath the pedal and that would put pressure upwards while i was researching on how to do it myself found out is complicated and decided to take it to the mechanic for a 200$ fix.

Battery keeps draining


this could be a problem on the battery itself, better to bring back the unit to the shop where you purchase the phone. it could be a defective battery.

you still have the unit warranty and it is also important to bring back it to them for further testing and checking onto your unit.
