Check the date sticker on top of battery. It is getting close to the month rating then it is time to replace it.

Can a oil leak damage a alternator as to where it won't charge the battery?

Yes.. If oil gets into the circuit board it can damage the diodes and circuit board. Oil can also carry other damaging minerals and debris into the Alternator.

When i stopped all dash board lights came on and now wont start and has no power to anything

When vehicle stalls, the dash lites may come on.
Make sure battery has a full charge, battery connections all good. Make sure charging system is working properly.
Use a test lite and check voltage to fuse circuits in fuse box. Some fuses circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. Right now, I can't tell if you have problem with battery--battery connections--charging system--fusible links--ignition switch or what? You need to do some testing. Let us know what you find?

What is year--make--model?

Flat battery. Recharging but why is fuse board making lot of clicking noises and sounding alarm as battery charges?

1st disconnect the battery from the circuit board and charge the battery separately. Then reconnect the battery and see if it resets itself normally.

Hi have a magne1.9 deisel when I insert my card it says card not accepted, is this because I need to change the battery? In my card

If you have a voltmeter, check the battery. Replace if it is below 2.7 V (should be about 3 V). If changing the battery doesn't work, check out this video: Renault key card easy fix ignition key save 300 GBP - YouTube

Note one thing: the person in the video is not observing electrostatic safety handling precautions. Do not touch any of the circuitry with your fingers except the battery contacts or printed foil connected directly to the battery; otherwise handle the circuit board only by the edges. If you must use a non-insulated tool, touch it to a battery contact before applying it to the circuit board to discharge any static electricity carried from your fingers. Carelessness in this regard could damage the integrated circuit, leading to immediate or eventual failure.

2001 Dodge Stratus ES charging problem...Not alternator or Battery... HELP ME

Change all your relays,especially in the engine bay,check your idler control valve/servo for faulty or short circuited.Also check all the fuse boxes for contamination,Spray with circuit board cleaner or something similar.

First the dash controls went, no power to the gas gauge or temp or speed, then a weak start. Next a clicking sound that stopped the car from starting. New battery and was working when the dash was hit....

Initially it sounded like the typical dash gauge cluster solder problem on the main wiring harness of the dash circuit board, and possibly a low battery charge. Both very easy to fix. Your further description makes me think it might be the BCM (body control module). This is a bit more involved. If the battery is fully charged and battery cables are clean and in good condition, do you get any engine cranking or clicking sounds at all? If not, then I would strongly suspect the BCM. I fixed mine by taking the BCM out of the vehicle (not really too difficult) and locating a resistor on the circuit board labelled 331. There is only one of them with this number. I re-melted the solder on each end of this resistor, and have had no further electrical 'ghost gremlin' problems ever since. (over a year now) You may need to do the same with the solder joints on the dash gauge circuit board wiring harness. This problem has to do with defective solder used around that time period. I had to use these fixes on both a 1996 and a 1998 Voyager. Please post any other questions or diagnostic info.

97 jeep wragler sport 6cyl battery good and holds charge, changed starter, drove about a mile and battery gauge shot up to 19 volts, went back down to normal then shot back up to 19, what do you think is...

use a digital voltage meter on the battery to verify the 'spikes', Jeep Wrangler gauges are notorious for being erratic (I have a 98 TJ, how's your gas gauge working?)-

the printed circuit board gets weird due to water leaks that find their way to the back of the pod from the top of the roof seal, so it is not unusual for gauges to act strangly.

If that is not the case, it is time for a new alternator.

Put a new battery in my girlfriends 2002 gran vit5ara key remote and it does not work,how do I re program the remote? please advise thanks, mike amchin

What I would do first is to make sure the battery is not now upside down.
Then I would take a rubber pencil eraser and gently clean the contact surfaces of the remote's circuit board where they touch the battery. Then I would take the transmitter circuit board out and using the eraser rubber clean the contacts under the rubber push buttons and their corresponding grids on the circuit board. If still no luck I would take it to a dealer and have them test it. If no work you can buy them used very cheap on ebay, and have the dealer charge you to reset the vehicle to recognize the new remote..

Method of charging a 2004 Mercedes E320 battery

It is always safer to charge the battery out of circuit, Removal of one cable will insure you can safely charge without hurting electronics on board. Generally if your battery is already sufficiently charged it acts like a capacitor in the circuit and will prevent damage, but many battery chargers do not always put out a pure dc voltage and this can damage electonics.
