Car Starting Problems
Car Batteries

If you left the car lights on all night and the car doesn't start and you just replaced the battery about a week ago does that mean your car battery is dead?

It means the battery has been drained of all it's power. Simply recharge the battery with a battery charger and it will be fine. You do not have to replace the battery, although draining the battery fully does harm the battery. Charge the battery fully and it will function as it should.

If you leave the lights on the battery goes down or anything else that uses the battery over night. But if that's not it, the battery is worn out and you need to buy a new one.

Because you left the lights on all night. This drains the battery. Connect a battery charger and wait about 3 hours. Then the car might start. If it does not start buy a new battery or a new car whichever you prefer.battery juice is gone.

Can be a dead cell in the battery which will fully discharge the battery over night. The battery must be replaced. Of course any battery will loose it's charge over a few months of storage.

lights being on all matters such as so...

There are about 3 reasons your lights don't display at night. 1. Ground wire is loose, located on firewall. 2. Burned out LED display, must be replaced. 3.

check the wiring connections at the battery and the starter. Both places can give starting problems. The dash lights could be a separate problem. Check the fuses for the lights.

Replace the headlight switch that turns on the lights and parking lights, it's a whole unit that has the slider dimmer switch in it. Be sure to disconnect the negative battery cable first. Cheap at a salvage yard.

Because even though the electronics in the car run off the battery the alternator is constantly putting a charge back in the battery as long as the engine is running.

A dead cell in the battery will cause it to loose it's charge overnight. The only fix is to replace the battery. Also if something is on drawing power from the battery it will run it down overnight. Look at all lights. Interior, under hood, trunk, give box, brake lights, etc. It can also be a stuck relay.

The stars are always there, it just doesnt seem like it when there are many city lights, or if its a cloudy night.

There are a few reasons why a battery may drain overnight on a 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood. One reason could be the alternator needs replaced.

Depends if you have the ignition running or just the say you left the lights on. If you just left the ignition on all night nothing will happen except just running out of fuel. If you left your lights on without ignition running your battery will die.

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

Solar lights work by the solar panel collecting the sun energy during the day and storing the energy in a battery bank. At night, the controller provided by the solar system turns the light on and uses the stored energy from the battery. In the morning, the cycle repeats.
