Why wont your car battery hold a charge?
Could be a few things such as the battery itself could be NG, or the vehicles charging system is not working properly, or you may have draw in the electrical system discharging the battery such as the glove compartment light stuck on. Start with having the battery tested at your local auto parts store.

What all can drain your battery?
Almost anything. On newer model vehicles, the engine's computer drains the battery constantly, as does the stereo. Short circuits can cause a drain. Any electrical system that is left on will drain the battery. Even a disconnected battery will lose charge over time and the older the battery, the faster it drains. Also a battery with a dead cell will discharge itself, usually overnight.

Asked in Car Batteries, Chrysler Sebring
Does the battery in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring have the capability to recharge itself?
No, a battery cannot recharge itself. The alternator converts some of the engine's energy into electrical energy which is then stored in the battery. If a battery is not getting recharged under normal driving conditions, you either have a problem with the charging system or a failed battery. You can't know without testing. On the other hand, sometimes a dead battery can get what's called a "surface charge". A surface charge just means that when you were cranking last time, you depleated all of the readily available electrical charge. By letting the battery sit for a while, "entropy" has allowed some of the chemical reaction to spread out over all of the battery plates... but the battery cannot "create" electrical energy.
Asked in Car Batteries, Buick Park Avenue
What could cause a 1994 Buick park avenue battery to drain overnight?
Most likely there is something that is draining it. In case it might be the battery itself, disconnect the battery terminals at night. When you reconnect in the morning and the battery is OK, then the problem is in the electrical system somewhere. If the battery is dead then the battery needs to be replaced. Finding the fault in the electrical system can be difficult. Check to make sure all lights go out when the car is turned off. Pulling fuses to see if any stops the drain could help isolate the problem too. Good luck

How to make use of dell inspiron 6000 laptop battery?
Insert it into the laptop. I'll also advice you to remove the battery and test system with the same system's battery to really detect what as happened, because the battery itself can be bad, so just do as I said. Remember to: 1. Breaking In New Batteries 2. Exercise Your Batteries http://www.article-database.com/2009/11/24/maximize-laptop-battery-performance/
Asked in Car Batteries
Battery light comes on?
Battery Idiot Light If by battery light you mean the instrument panel charging system warning light, then that means that more electricity is flowing out of the battery than is being put into it. The charging system is not putting out as much electricity as the electrical system is using. In other words, the battery is being "drained" rather than being charged.

Asked in Car Batteries, Chevy Silverado
How can you tell if the battery charger for vehicle battery is actually working?
If you are talking about battery chargers you buy to charge your vehicle's battery, you will hear a slight hum or a feel a slight vibration as it is charging. Some chargers have a meter which will show the current (Amps) being put into the battery. If you mean the vehicle's own battery charging system, if that system is not working it is likely that a red warning light on your dashboard will not go out after you have started the engine. Vintage cars or special-build vehicles often have an Ammeter to show the current (Amps) being put into the battery. If the vehicle's own charging system is not working you can still drive the vehicle for some distance but don't rely on the battery's charge lasting for long: if the battery is not being re-charged it will go flat because of the current drain taken by the vehicle's electrics. (Ignition, fuel pump, lights, etc..) If you can't get the vehicle's own battery charging system fixed but still want to use the vehicle for short distances you will have to re-charge its battery regularly using a mains-powered battery charger. When you eventually get the vehicle's charging system fixed it would be a good idea to have the battery tested too, to be sure it is ok. If your battery is too flat to start the engine then there may be 2 different reasons why it went flat: 1) because the battery is old or has a fault so that it cannot hold a charge any more - the battery needs to be replaced. 2) because the vehicle's battery charging system has a fault so that it has stopped charging the battery. In that case it is the charging system which must be replaced. This assumes of course that the battery itself is ok.
