What could be the problem if your car will not start after running on a brand new battery after a month?
The alternator probably isn't putting out properly. Go to AutoZone and have them check the alternator. If the new battery went completely dead, and you know the alternator is good, the culprit could be a "slow draw". This would be caused by a trunk light that stays on when the trunk is closed, a vanity mirror light, glove compartment light, console light; something that you assume goes out when it's closed, but doesn't. Check all of your courtesy light switches in these places to make sure they make proper contact. A glove compartment or console door that doesn't close properly could be the culprit. Until you find the problem, disconnect your battery when you're in for the night! If you can't resolve it on your own, find a shop that has a low amps probe. It'll determine where the draw is coming from.
83 Celica charging light and brake light on all the time replaced brand new alternator and brand new battery the problem does not go away what else could be the problem?
Should give more info. Did they come on at the same time or days apart? Could you have 2 problems not just one? If they both came on together you could have a wiring problem. If it has a sensor for the light in the master cylinder it could just be low on fluid, bad sensor or damaged wiring to sensor. Have you checked the output of the alternator with a digital multimeter? Check it…
Probably need a new alternator, or you battery cables or conectors could be bad If the battery is connected to your vehicle and it is not maintaining charge while the vehicle is running then it is more than likely your alternator that is out. If the battery does not have juice and is brand new then it is defective. I have also heard that if you place a car battery directly on concrete for a…
Could the problem be the alternator or voltage regulator if a battery won't hold a charge in a Mazda miata?
What could be the problem if my 2000 Mazda miata has a new battery and the battery loses it's charge after driving the car in one day?
Age of battery Battery will not hold a charge (check with a volt meter) A fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 volts (without engine running) If charging system is working properly reading should increase to approx. 13.8-14.2 with engine running. If voltage does not increase with engine running could be a problem with charging system of battery is defective and will not take or hold a charge
Assuming the new battery is good! The usual problem why a battery is not charging is the alternator. The battery will be discharged if the alternator is not working properly when you start the engine and when the engine is running, etc. The vehicle uses the batteries electricity instead of the alternators electrical output, and of course if the battery is not being replenished by the alternator the battery will fail in a short period…
When you drive your 2000 elantra you notice that smoke comes out of the battery top vent you changed the battery and this is still going on does anyone know what could be the problem?
If the battery light is displayed when the engine is running, you may have a problem with your charging system. The battery display will stay on while the key is in RUN until the engine is started. If the message stays on after the engine is started, it could indicate a problem with the generator drive belt, or some other charging system problem. Driving with this message could drain your battery. If you have to…
What is wrong is it seems like your battery is dead and the car will not start but the headlights still shine bright?
IT COULD BE YOUR BATTERY BUT I WOULD CLEAN AND CHECK THE BATTERY CABLES FOR A BAD CONNECTION. SOME AUTO PART STORES WILL TEST YOUR BATTERY FOR YOU FOR FREE. ALSO A GOOD WAY TO TEST IF IT COULD BE YOUR ALTERNATOR IS, IF YOU CAN BOOST IT TO GET IT STARTED THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS REMOVE ONE OF THE CABLES WHILE IT IS RUNNING AND IF STAYS RUNNING THEN ALTERNATOR IS…
Battery light is on while the car is running and I have to put the battery on charge what could be the problem beside Alternator battery any help is appreciated.?
Question on a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country The van was running and just went dead you have no power at all the battery cables are new Could this be a fuse problem?
Well, it could b a few things. It could be that your alternator isn't recharging your battery and it just shut off because it doesnt have the charge 2 keep your vehicle running at the level its used to, by using the raido and such, or it could be a problem with combustion. it could be your fuel supply that's causing the problem, either a clogged filter or a kink in the gas line
What does it mean when a dash light that looks like a battery appears on my 1998 F150 Ford It has a 4.6 liter engine. I purchased a new battery but the light is still on. Thank You?
Unfortunately , your battery is not being charged properly It could be an alternator or voltage regulator problem , a broken or disconnected wire , there might be a fuse for the alternator that has blown ( before the serpentine belt , when multiple belts were used , it could be a broken belt ) if the light came on when the engine was running You would need to have the charging system tested to…
a head light problem should always start with the fuse and then the bulbs. if the lights still are not coming on make sure they are getting the proper voltage from the battery. (if the vehicle is running than you are ok on this one) if you are getting good voltage than your light switch could be to blame. hope this could help.
Your battery could be discharged enough to not activate solenoid (clicking) If it's that dead, battery may be completely shot or problem with connections. If those look ok, substitute a known good battery to see if will start. If/when does, see if charging -use voltmeter at posts with car off and on-if charging voltage will be higher when running. If charging-buy a battery.
After 1972 volkswagon beetle running fine all day when we got home it will not start. key doesn't seem to do anything it has a new battery. Could there be a trick with the ignition?
check your battery post terminals for good clean connection. If no problem there then you might have a bad generator. Your generator might not be charging your battery. If you installed a new battery and ran your bug all day chances are that your engine was running off of the battery which was not being recharged by your generator. As soon as you turned off your engine and tried to re-start it, your battery did…
Can you charge a dead battery by getting a second car that is running take the good battery out of the running car and put the dead battery into the running car as a means of charging it?
1999 Polaris scrambler 400 I ride at night and use headlights I come home with dead battery it has brand new stator. what else could be the problem?
Alternator can be discounted for starting problem; it charges the battery when the engine is running it has nothing to do with starting the car. If the engine is not turning over (cranking) when you try to start it, either the igniton switch, wiring or starter motor are at fault. Also check the thick cable from battery negative/body to the engine block. NOTE if the car is automatic the park/neutral switch could be faulty. If…
you need a new battery. if battery has been replaced and this still does not solve the problem, you must have had the bad battery for too long and it ruined the If the new battery doesn't solve the problem you can have check the battery cables, make sure they have a clean tight connection. Also the problem could be with your starter also.
If a Kia Retona won't start, there could be one of a number of problems. The car could be out of gas, or the battery may be dead. There could also be a disconnected wire from the battery or one or both of the battery cables could be dirty or corroded. If the engine is trying to turn over, there may be a problem with the starter. A mechanic can diagnose the problem.
My Chrysler Pacifica has a brand new altanator and new battery and when its on idle the battery dies but as long as its running on higher rpms it works fine What is wrong with it?
Yes, I had this exact problem with a 2001 Chevy Prizm's stereo console. Usually it can be detected by checking if there is a large draw on the battery when the engine isn't running, but mine was intermittent. One test is the unplug the power connectors to the radio and see if the battery doesn't die. The obvious fix is an after market stereo console.
98 Chevy Malibu that starts the first time every time but takes awhile you can hear the starter but sometimes it takes 5 seconds to start What is the problem?
Dashboard and center console lost power even with ignition in the on position or the engine running. What could be the problem?
Symptoms: Besides having a dead battery.......... If you charge or jumpstart your vehice's battery and successfully get it running to only have it mysteriously die and have no lights, radio, etc.; it is probably you alternator. If your vehicle will run constantly on it's own, but will not start after shutting it off, it could be your battery. If your battery will hold a charge on it's own, but goes dead a while after you…
Your 1993 Pontiac transport will not charge battery an battery good and battery hand reading nothing with engine running an already had alternator check an replace pcm but there is still no charge?
Does the Alternator have a power supply back from the battery to excite the alternator? I had the same problem and despite trying several alternators found that a fuse had blown on the circuit bring power back from the battery. Or the bushes in the alternator could be worn out or the diode pack could be shot. Put a volt meter onto the small wire on the alternator and across to the vehicle body you…
I had this problem with my 1994 Buick LeSabre and it no longer happened when I installed a new battery. It's been at least 6 months now with no recurrence of the problem. Before the new battery, I noticed that if I waited about 5 minutes after turning off the car, I could get the lights to turn off. Seemed like something had to cool down.
