Yes, and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running can severely damage the computers
Yes, a loose battery cable will prevent the alternator from charging the battery. The drain on the battery is not caused by the engine not running unless an accessory is left on. Most likely, the drain is caused by accessories (radio, lights, etc) while the engine is running due to the battery not receiving its charge from the alternator and then not having enough charge left to start the engine.
Yes. You should read from 13.5 to 15.5 volts at the battery with the engine running. Your alternator is not putting out any voltage. Remove it and have it tested at your local auto parts store.
Not likely, but running the engine with a dead battery can damage some alternators. Always fully charge the battery when installing an alternator.
The wrong spark plug wire(s) can cause engine problems including not running but won't drain the battery.
If the alternator fails, it is no longer keeping the battery charged and your engine is running on nothing but battery power. Once the battery runs down, your engine will no longer run.
I've seen this happen in Honda's. Does it remain running for long periods of time or never shut off? If it is only running for a short time, it's cooling off your engine still because it's still really hot. There's nothing wrong with this.
NO. That means the engine is running too hot. Check cooling system.
No, that will have no effect on the battery.
a weak battery will not cause an engine vibration.
Yes, it can ruin the battery by overcharging it. If you are reading between 13.5 to 15.5 volts at the battery with the engine idling then more than likely the alternator is good and you battery has a dead cell. A fully charged battery will read 12.6 volts with the engine not running.
If coolant is up to proper level and cooling fans are working - should not overheat
running with out engine oil
A dead battery would not cause an engine to seize
Possibly. Under some circumstances it could cause the battery to short out. If the engine has been running hot for long periods, the heat could damage the battery too. It might also be that the engine has internal damage and the starter is having a problem turning it over.
If the engine isn't running, the battery is low. If the engine is running, the alternator probably has a problem. If you are wearing dark sunglasses, remove them and the lights will get brighter. good luck!
Could be that the alternator is not charging the battery properly Check with a voltmeter A fully charged battery should read around 12.8 without engine running With engine running voltage should read around 13.8-14.2 The most likely cause is a broken alternator drive belt
No, a defective battery will prevent the engine from starting but once it is running the battery will not cause hesitation. the the starter relay is disengaged , and the alternator takes over battery charging via voltage regulator . voltage regulator prevents power surges and prevents voltage fluctuation.
In the cooling system it transfers heat out through the radiator. If mixed with the gasoline, it can cause rough running or no start. If pulled in through the air filter it can cause a catastrophic failure.
alternater not charging or bad battery!!battery voltage should be about 12-13 volts when engine is off, and about 14 or 14.5 when running. if all is ok then there is a short in system.
Yes, it can over or undercharge the battery. If i is overcharging it can ruin the battery. If it is under charging the battery will just run down. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should read around 13.5 to 15.5 volts.
battery light on 2000 f250 will blink if battery is not properly charged. an example is if you have been sitting all day with stereo olaying and engine not running, you have run battery down some. after starting engine and driving, the battery light will blink while alternator charges until battery is fully charged i have only experienced this at night when lights are on creating extra load for alternator ,after running battery down with stereo all day
It could cause the check engine light to come on with a code concerning cooling system/thermostat performance.It could cause the check engine light to come on with a code concerning cooling system/thermostat performance.
No. It is illegal, will cause a check engine light and running problems.No. It is illegal, will cause a check engine light and running problems.
It can but the Battery light should be on. Check with a digital multimeter what the voltage is at the battery, If its 13-14 volts with the car running the alternator is probably o/k
