My ford think batteries are dead. A few years ago I had system installed to turn off power so they wouldn't drain while not in use. My sister used cart and didn't turn switch so batteeries are now completely dead. How many are there? Can I replace myself? How much? Last time dealer seemed VERY VERY expensive

You don't need to replace the battery just because its dead or if you can get a jump from a friend and drive your truck around for an hours or so, your alternator should charged the battery 50-65% percent; to get it up to 100% I would say 3 to 4 hours of straight highway driving although I usually recommend put it on the charger overnight; most auto part store will even recharge the battery and test the cell its self making sure the battery is still can hold the charge and good. battery can be fairly expensive and can run anywhere from 50-75 bucks, depending on the cranking amps of the the battery. yes you can change or replace it your self, which is not that difficult. some auto parts store will even assist with replacing the battery, especially auto zone and never get it from a dealer, they have almost 100% mark up on most of their parts.

It would help us to answer you question if you include the model and type of vehicle.. When you say "batteries" you imply more than one - which would indicate that it is a diesel truck ??

Please add some more detail and we will do our best to help..

OR - if this helps enough - batteries can range in price from around $60.00 to over $100.00

You could also try this for a worth of information about your vehicle..
Go to autozone.com and register.. Enter your vehicle info and you will have a tone of available info about your vehicle.. Prices, parts, allot of "how to" help.. This might be all you need for the help you seek..

Have a great day !!

1988 lxi honda accord battery drains overnight


Just a couple problems I've had. dome light left on due to faulty door open switch, spot light charger or equipment left plugged or wired to battery, lately I thought I had a bad battery but I just need to clean the terminal connections. One more thing if your car is running you can pull the negative cable off the battery. If the car dies your alternator could be the problem. If you have a light in the trunk or under the hood you could pull the bulb out to make sure you don't have a faulty switch turning them on. These are kind of simple and that is the way I start out.

Have the charging system checked. Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will do it free. Check Diodes.

Some production years had a weird problem. Its worthy of mention but since you replaced the batteries, it should not apply. Watch your Charge, Voltmeter as sometimes the Alternator will disconnect automatically WHILE DRIVING at even 70mph. The system monitors your vehicle for PARASITIC drains and automatically disconnects the power connection as part of a Battery Saver.

So if Battery levels fall, causing the Alternator to work too hard to recharge a drained system, it will disconnect the charging circuit. Even if if you used a boost to jump the truck, it will charge for maybe 5 minutes and then disconnect.

Now for the battery to drain in 1 hour, you should have a glowing part. About the only thing which could drain that much power is a Rear window defroster or a stuck timer or power relay on the glowplug system.

The glowplugs could be remaining energized and you would not know it. A grounding starter could drain the system. Have a draw test performed.

Most anything else would break a fuse or burn a wiring connection.

Clean the Negative battery cable and if mounted to the block, check the engine to frame strap.

Please rate my info.

I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

ok you can start by pulling the fuses out one by one and use a multi meter to see how much each one is drawing power it doesn't take allot in my jeep i found the in side console computer was not turning off and was draining my battery dead so i had to run a jumper from ware i pulled that fuse
to a fuse that turns off with the key and that ended the drain on the battery and if you pull them out when its dark you will see a spark with the key is off when you plug the fuse back in and see what
that fuse is.

hope this helps you
good luck

you should check the voltage on your batttery when the car is running. If it reads about 13.5 to 14 volts, your alternator is doing it's job. If it's less, replace the alternator. If the alternator is ok, you have a power drain somewhere, you will need a proffesional to look at it.

No power


I think you should check the charging system. You said you replaced the battery a few weeks ago. Even with the charging system not working, the battery might have enough power for a dozen or more start-ups; but using the lights may have drained what power was left. Get or borrow a battery charger and charge your battery. If mower then seems to be working fine, measure the voltage across the battery when the mower engine is running at normal speed (not idling). It should be 13.5 volts or more if the charging system is working. 12 volts or less means it's probably not working. Either test or replace the regulator/rectifier. Please rate me if you think this helped, thanks!
