Have you had the alternator checked? If an alternator is not working it can acually drain your batt. big time fast.

To indicate to you that it may need charging, replacing, or a loose connection.

when you have to keep charging it frequently, as its no longer holding the charge.

Could be the life of the battery has expired or the charging system is faulty or the vehicle has a draw on the system killing the battery when not running. Drive the vehicle to your local auto parts store. They will test the battery and the charging system at no cost. Battery is bad or something is draining it. Most places that sell batteries can check it. With it charged, disconnect it and see if it holds a charge. If it does, something in the car is draining it. Dead cell in the battery or something is on drawing power from the battery.

Your alternator is not charging or the battery is very low

No, a battery charging problem will have something to do with your alternator 90% of the time. The other 9% of the time its the battery itself that can't hold a charge, the other 1% is engine electrical relays.

When replacing battery, when servicing some part of the engine, or when the vehicle is not going to be started for over one month.(keeps the radio memory from draining battery)

User Avatar

the alternator isn't charging as it shouldthe battery is bad and can't hold a charge any longeryou have an electric fault somewhere which is draining the battery.

alternator probably needs replacing not charging battery or bat is dead and not taking charge

User Avatar

The PLIP battery on the Peugeot 307 means that the battery is in need of charging. It can also mean there is a problem with the battery cables or the battery needs to be replaced. Not replacing the battery when necessary can also cause problems for the alternator.

If the alternator is not producing 13.5 to 15.5 volts it is defective and needs replacing.

User Avatar

You may have an electrical short where there is a bare wire coming into contact with metal and draining your battery or you may simply have a light on that's making the battery's voltage to drop . An experienced mechanic will be able to conduct several diagnostic tests to determine the cause .

User Avatar

Then either something is on draining the battery or the battery has a dead cell draining all the rest and must be replaced.

User Avatar

Can be the battery is defective and needs replacing or the alternator is weak and needs replacing. Have your charging system checked. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.

User Avatar

If your battery isn't charging, or is taking much longer to charge than it used to - it's time to replace it. Re-chargeable batteries don't last forever, and will eventually need replacing.

User Avatar

It may need replacing or it can be the alternator is overcharging the battery. Have the charging system checked out. The alternator should output from 13.5 to 15.5 volts with the engine running at idle.

User Avatar

charging system not charging battery with new batttery, alternator and fuel pump. what will make that happen ?

User Avatar

Make sure the battery is checked out under a load. This will indicate whether the battery is capable of holding a charge.Second, suspect the alternator is not charging the battery.Third, suspect a short or a switch somewhere that is draining the battery.

User Avatar

Try replacing your magneta , maybe some short in wireing , or it is just your battery . If none of these work , call an ATV or motor cycle dealer . You should get your answer there .

That's not 12 amps,that's 12 volts,which means the system isn't charging Measure the voltage across the battery terminals,if its charging properly,it will be between 13.8 and 14.7 volts,anything less and its not charging. Suspect then a faulty alternator or wiring problem. and have the battery properly recharged and tested too,a low battery will not give you a correct charging reading and a faulty alternator can take its toll on a battery.
