The gauge inside is telling you how many volts your alternator is putting out, not yoru battery. Go have your alternator tested to see if it is putting out 14 volts or more...........if not, you are drawing more current out of the battery then what the alternator is replacing and you are going to end up with another dead battery. They can test alternators at Autozone for free or you can go get a multi meter and test it yourself. Have the alternator checked.
I would drive it at least enough to keep the battery charged. The battery can actually fail just from not being charged.
it indicates that the alternator is not functioning sufficiently to keep the battery charged.
Get a new battery, mine was doing the same thing. No matter how charged it is, youll still need a new one.
There is probably a bad cell in the battery. Take it to an auto parts retailer and have them check the battery for you.
reincarnate your battery dudes XD
Have the battery load tested at your local auto parts store, even though you think you have it charged it may be bad. Have the charging system tested also.
I had to take mine to the local Chevy dealer to get the code to reset the radio after the battery was changed. I was charged $40 by them to do this.
did you find the problem?? i having the same deal with my '06. new battery and alt is fine!
how to replace a 1990 Chevy Beretta battery
The Chevy volt car is an electric car but not fully because the battery only goes for 25-50 miles per charge. After that, a gasoline engine starts and produces energy for the electric battery to run the car. Gas is only used after the battery is run down and can be charged again.
Could be, (assuming the starter is not cranking the engine) a bad starter, dirty or loose battery connections, the engine is seized.
Alternator is defective and is not keeping the battery charged. Or, you have a light or relay that is on pulling power from the battery. Start the engine and check the voltage at the battery with a digital volt meter. You should have 13.5 to 15.5 volts if the alternator is good.
Try getting a jump start. Could be a bad battery. If your battery is good, then you will need to get a new starter. It may be the Starter or the battery make be dead,
Check your battery to see if it is fully charged and your wires are clean and tight. If so, you probably need a solonoid.
I am assuming you are asking about getting the battery out of your 1988 Chevy Celebrity. To get the battery out: 1. Loosen the strut from the radiator support bracket and swing it aside. You may have to loosen the single bolt at the inner fender well to move the strut. 2. Wearing gloves to protect your skin from battery acid remove the ground cable. 3. Remove the positive cable. 4. Loosen and remove the holding clamp at the bottom of the battery. 5. Lift the battery out of the battery tray. Reverse the steps to put the battery back in.
The location of the battery on a Chevy Venture is under the hood. It rests under the cross bar, which has to be removed to replace the battery.
The first thing I would check on, would be the battery not holding charge(bad battery), The battery terminal should be tight and VERY clean, Alternator not putting out enough juice to keep the battery charged. Or the starter is weak and looking for a replacement..
my guess from what you said is that either the battery or alt. is getting weak battery and alternater replaced less than 4000 miles
have the alternator and the battery checked
There is no battery reset.
test the voltage on the battery first, then on the alternator. If its good then it could just be the diode in the alternator. I would suggest you replace it becuase eventually your alternator will die and the battery will not get charged leaving you stranded somewhere. It is possible to just be a battery but you wont know unless you have the battery tested. check the voltage on the battery and the alternator before you do anything else.
If it has the same orientation of the battery posts and will fit the holder then it will work.
how do you remove the battery? We have all the terminals off but still cant get the battery out.
The battery on a 2007 Chevy Equinox is located under the hood of the car. It is right behind the right headlight.
not really but would not suggest starting it because of over heating issues and as long as the battery is charged it should start
