Remove the negative battery cable from the battery negative terminal and set it aside so that it cannot make contact with the terminal. Just make sure you are not laying it on another piece of metal. It can be tied in position with a piece of string. You can "insulate" the cable clamp by wrapping a rag around it, which will prevent contact if the cable should shift back against the negative terminal. Or, buy a battery disconnect [switch] from a parts place, and then all you need to do is turn the switch and the battery is no longer connected to the car's system. Answer 1 assumes that the problem is some kind of electrical drain in the vehicle electrical system. The problem could could be a battery nearing the end of its life, and simply is not capable of holding a charge. j3h.
A little known problem that exists is that the vehicle's blower control system (in the front dash) has a speed regulator called an ATTENUATOR which controls the speed at which the blower blows. For example; most cars have High, Medium and Low for blower settings whereas, Cadillac's have a 0-100 speed. Meaning, you can set this speed anywhere on that grid and the blower will stay at that level.
The ATTENUATOR unit is located inside the dash controls where you adjust the blower and it's tough to replace. However, if not done right after the attenuation system burns out the burned system will be left to it's own devices which equals a constant drain on the battery. Why? I'm not sure. But I do know once the part has been replaced the problem is fixed. I believe it has something to do with the in-line fuse assembly that it 'BLOWS OUT' at the same time. Without a fuse, the power will drain through the wiring harness until the battery is dead as dead can be. I found it lasted about 30-45 minutes after each charge. So, that is a very quick drain on any battery.
Dead cell in battery or something is on pulling power from the battery.
catalytic converter is probably clogged
A car battery would keep dying because inversely, the lesser the battery is used, the dying process continues. The more the battery is used, the lesser the dying process. But the dying commences and continues , the moment the car engine is not used. Thus, as often as the car is being used, the dying "resumes" the moment tne engine stops. And the faster it is used again, the slower the dying process.EVerytime the car engine is used, the battery recharges, thus life is given back to the battery. Once the engine stops, the dying resumes. This is why the car battery keeps on dying (everytime the car engine is not being used)
your battery is dying or is dead
Your battery is probably dying
you look on the side of it
With so much electronics, it is extremely hard to find any problem that happens just so often. If it wouyld die and not start, it would be easier to find but if it is running good when the dealer has it it is hard to find. Have patience. hey this might help ive had that problem and i just tried it out today.your car must relearn what your idle speed should be.i found that answer right on this website.rephrase your question to why is my Cadillac Seville stalling.Hope that helps its a very easy procedure!!
No it doesn't double on the weekend.
Your battery is slowly dying.
that means the battery is not good
When you see any sign the old battery is dying.
I have a 2001 Intrepid and my battery kept dying, so 2 tow trucks later I found out that the battery that was in my car had over heated and battery acid was leaking. After that all I had to do was replace the battery and everything is well. Hope this helps!
put the doors back on or get a new battery
Because you over-use it
it's already well dead if it is corroding
I think it is a dying battery
well when its dying its red when its going to die in like 20 secs it will flash red
have the battery tested, average life of a battery is 2 to 3 years. if battery is good check voltage regulator and starter motor. there is a short somewhere if the battery is good
starts slow, lights dim on starting.
Is it new? if it is it's not the battery. If it's really old your battery most likely is leaking.
battery hooked up backward, wires crossed somewhere or it could be the solenoid.
Dead cell in the battery or some light non vehicle is on. Can also be a stuck relay.
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.
it might be because your car battery is low or dead
