it must be wired or accidentally...due to a short..connected up to battery.. It will usually go through sensors and some kind of timer and or controller,,you can check those as wel. check the AC fan control relay. just unplug and fan should stop. If it does swap with the cooling fan relay and see if problem moves with it. If so repalce the relay.

If the engine is running, then no. The alternator constantly keeps the battery charged.

CMOS is the little battery in the computer's motherboard which keeps the computers internal clock running.

Either a short to power or a bad fan switch.

Possibly a bad alternator. The Alternator charges the battery when the vehicle is running. If the battery is not being charged this could cause the vehicle not to start.

Mower has a generator, which is turned by the engine. When engine is running, generator produces electricity to charge the storage battery.

The motherboard of your computer has a replaceable built-in CMOS battery which keeps track of the time. So even if the entire unit is switched off (that's unplugged from a AC power source) the battery keeps on "running".

In a laptop, your computer battery keeps your computer running when it isn't plugged in. The batteries on a laptop will eventually run out and will automatically recharge when you plug your laptop back in. With a desktop computer, a small battery keeps your computers internal clock powered when your computer is not plugged in.

In a desktop computer, the battery stores the CMOS settings and keeps the real-time clock running. In a laptop computer, the main battery is used to power the computer when it is not plugged into a wall adapter.

Because the alternator keeps the battery charged when the car is running.

If the car won't start, jump it off. While it is running, remove the positive cable from the battery. If the car dies, then your alternator is bad. If it keeps running then you may have a bad battery.

Running keeps you healthy and fit.

Yes, as long as the engine is running, so is the alternator. The alternator is actually what keeps the car battery charged.

my battery light keeps coming on why is that, ive replace the battery and it still happening please help?

User Avatar

Battery keeps running down when you are driving. Your battery light should be on if the alternator is bad. Check the voltage at the battery with a digital DC volt meter set to the 20 volt scale. You should read from 13.5 to 15.5 volts with the engine running at idle. If not the alternator is suspect.

The battery is charged by a generator that runs through a regulator-rectifier. The generator outputs AC voltage and the rectifier converts the voltage to DC. The generator is normally mounted inside the engine on the flywheel.

I'd check your alternator. Disconnecting the positive terminal while the engine is running will tell you. If the engine dies when you disconnect the battery, it's your alternator. If it keeps running it's something else, like your battery. I had the same problem.

I think the person means the heater blower motor and not a radiator fan motor

Your vehicle's charging system is not working. It is running only off the battery power. You need to have the charging system tested to determine what is at fault.

User Avatar

either you have corrosion on the connector cables (wires that hook the battery up to the car) or you have a bad fuse or you have a bad alternator (what charges the battery and keeps the car running). in order to find out try to jump start it. if the engine doesnt turn than the cables are bad.

User Avatar

no the charging system consists of the battery and the alternator. the battery being the starting point of the system. the battery provides the initial power. the alternator then keeps your battery charged while the motor is running. the starter gets its power from the battery but has no relation to the charging system. the starter has but only one function and that is to power up upon initial start up and turn your motor over to get it running. hope that helps you out a little bit.
