What could cause the battery of a 1986 Buick Riviera to go dead?

Can be a defective cell in the battery, or it has shorted out. Can also be a defective alternator not providing enough power to keep the battery charged. Can also be a drain on the battery such as a light staying on. dome light, courtesy light, trunk light under hood light, etc. If the battery is over 4 years old or has been run dead more than once, replace it.


Why is battery light staying on?

The alternator has low or no output . Put a volt meter on your battery and take a reading .the meter should read atleast 12 volts. Start your car then put the meter back on the battery and take another reading. It now should be reading between 13 -14.5 volts. If it does not get your alternator rebuilt.


What could drain the battery on a 2002 geo prism other than the alternator or starter?

A dead cell in the battery will cause it to loose it's charge overnight. The only fix is to replace the battery. Any light that is staying on will drain the battery. Also a stuck relay will drain the battery.


Why would a new battery drain when nothing appears to be left on and the alternator checks out ok?

For a battery to "Drain" you MUST have a short somewhere or the "Glovebox" or "Trunk" light is staying on etc. etc. Battery's don't just "Drain" on there own ;-) TommyTrouble


Is there a reset for the battery light in a 2005 Ford Focus?

NO. The battery light as you call it is actually the charging system light. If it is staying on the charging system is not working properly. More than likely the alternator has failed. It really has very little to do with the battery.


Alternator is good battery is new but keeps losing charge?

It sounds like you have a circuit staying hot all the time, like a bad switch or even a radio. Also might have a defective new alternator or battery or both. Start with the most obvious places first. Hope this helps


What will cause a 1993 mitsubushi eclipse's battery to drain even after you replaced the alternator with a new one?

If you have checked the battery and made sure that the new alternator is working, the only other possibility is that something is staying on when the ignition is off. Not all new alternators are perfect, sometimes they come with a faulty component that can drain the battery. Also, older batteries can slowly drain if the plates are starting to fail. It's difficult to just give one solution to a problem with so many possibilities.


What to do about battery light staying on after staring up your Ford Escape Just put in a new battery and no change?

Same thing happened to me. Replaced the battery & the light went out for a couple weeks; after which it was back on again. This time I took it to the shop & they said the alternator was about to go. I didn't want to "fix" something that was "about to go" so I drove it for about 10 more days before the alternator stopped putting out enough juice to keep the car running or battery charged. Took the car back in & paid to have the alternator replaced. Guess they were right b/c it has worked just fine since. Good luck. It sounds like your alternator is about to go.

What would cause the battery to run down on a Mitsubishi Mirage?

If you mean the battery goes dead, maybe you need a new battery. Either that or something's drawing it dead. ie: a light staying on someplace (glovebox, trunk light...), bad charging system, etc. Probably the alternator.


Why is your 1987 Nissan 300 zx brand new battery not staying charged?

I had a situation where the security module(under the passenger seat) was drawing from the battery when the car was sitting. I removed it and the draw on the battery stopped, had to buy a new battery because the draw depleted the battery so bad over the winter that the cells died.


What would drain the battery on 2002 ford ranger?

if the battery is not bad and fully charged, remove the positive cable. Touch it to the positive post slowly. If if sparks, you have a load on it. remove the fuses one at a time and try the cable on the post each time until you get no spark. The fuse you've pulled has the load on it. Trace the citcuit until you find what it is. example, the ign fuse. It may be the alternator is staying hot.
