Your alternator is shot.
Either a short to power or a bad fan switch.
When replacing battery, when servicing some part of the engine, or when the vehicle is not going to be started for over one month.(keeps the radio memory from draining battery)
try disconnecting the battery
I had the same problem on my denaly it is a module in the dash for the heather. even if you turn the key off it is still on
what alarme is it find the wiring digram and remove the fuse
Probably, with that age of car, it's a wrecked battery. The only last 4-5 years, on average.
my 1992 golf does this... it was due to the new amp and stereo :) fit a spare in the boot solved my problem
your voltage regulator is stuck ,if it's still factory equip , if not the diode in the alt. is bad.
The ignition is draining all the power to start the engine. You may have a dead battery.
check the coolant
Your left eye is watery and keeps draining because it might be infected with something such as pink eye. It might also be happening due to dry eyes or a clogged tear duct.
I have the same problem. I recently had to pull the plug for the air ride compressor, and now, I still have to jump it every week. I think I just need a new battery.. it is old. You might just need to get a new one also..
Apart form normal use of the battery, it is possible that the battery is getting old. Most types of rechargeable battery become less able to hold a charge as they age or may indeed have a finite number of times that they can be recharged. This will happen to phone batteries and to car batteries. When this happens you need a new battery and make sure that you dispose of the old battery properly (they contain chemicals that harm the environment).
Check your alternater. Sounds like it is bad in which case you are running just on the power from your battery which won't last long.
my battery light keeps coming on why is that, ive replace the battery and it still happening please help?
Check the dome light. These cars are notorous for having a bad door switch.
Check battery cables and alternator wiring for looseness and/or corrosion. Weak alternator--can't keep up with battery load. Check with a voltmeter A fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 volts withou engine running With engine voltage should increase to approx. 13.8-14.2 volts. If not in this range replace
It may be that the battery has a dead cell, so you should fully charge the battery and have it tested at any auto parts store. If the battery is good then Start by checking all the accessory lights. Trunk, under hood, glove box, curtorsey, dome, all lights. If none of them are on then suspect a stuck relay. Power windows, seat, locks, etc.
It could be the voltage regulator.
Possible open circuit from the starter relay or solenoid that keeps draining it or some accessory in the car may need lots of power to keep memory function, ex. gps, stereos, DVD players
hi if ur gage keeps dropping and u run out of juice in ur battery it could be one of two things 1) bad battery or 2) bad alternater
Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference in a rebuilt alternator and a brand new one. This is a very common problem.
The battery has a dead cell and needs replacing or something is on pulling power from the battery.
Because you over-use it
