New battery but will hold charge for a month,without warming it will not start


Have you checked the alternator to make sure it is charging the battery and also for voltage drains when the car is off ?
You would need to drive the car a few miles each week to keep the battery up. Otherwise if the car sits for several days and is driven only a mile or two, you may need to use a booster battery charger.

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

Welcome to FixYa.com



You have a drain on battery. Check glove box light to see if it stays on truck light and under hood light if one

Battery keeps draining


if your battery died while driving and the car cut off while your driving,, your problem is from your alternator!!!,, on a normal working car, you can start, remove ther battery terminals and the car would still run cause the alternator will be powering the car. In your case the alternator isnt working and the car was working on battery power therefore when the battery went dead the car cut off.. Your alternator need \s to be charging between 13.5 and 14.2 volts.. as little as 10 volts will keep the vehicle running.. I'd suggest you have the alternator replaced.

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls


alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

Check the voltage regulator if there's coming out of it.
you may have a good alternator but if nothing goes at
the alternator, then, it results to a drained battery. Just
replace your regulator, if this is not working.
