Why does battery drain while driving Volvo 940?
Alternator is defective or battery has a dead cell.
at the age of 13 and up
Bad alternator or corroded or loose cables.
Depends on if it drained while you were driving or ran down while it was parked overnight. If the battery runs down while you're driving the vehicle then more than likely the alternator is defective. If the battery drains while the vehicle is parked then the problem is either a dead cell in the battery or a light is on somewhere on the vehicle. Could be a under hood light, trunk, glovebox, dome, or even… Read More
If the battery, drive belt and wiring are okay then I would suspect the alternator is faulty. Your local auto parts store can test the charging system for you at no cost.

There are several things that can cause your 1990 Volvo 740 to stall while driving. The most common cause is a bad fuel pump.
A light in your car might be on, running down the battery!!
My Asus Transformerpad t100 drains battery in sleep mode the same as if it were in use. The product is supposed to drain battery less while in sleep. How do I fix this?
You will need to replace your Asus Transformerpad T100 battery if it continues to drain the same amount as if it was in use. Batteries should drain less, not the same, while in sleep mode.
Can a loose positive battery cable prevent the alternator from charging the batter and can it cause a battery drain while the engine is not running?
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.
Your battery is weak, or your your alternator is not charging battery.
Dead cell in the battery, or parasitic drain from a light that is on or a relay that is stuck.
Yes the car radio will drain the life out of a battery. The way it works is the battery acts like a plug-in that is in your house, and everything is hooked to it so after a while of using it all the power is draned from the batery and it is dead.
other then the normal things like gas, battery, altenator, belt broke. There is the clog in the fuel line, bad filter, bad fuel pump, and check all fuses also.
check battery cables at battery may be lose.
There is a possibility that your door is not closed properly. The hinges are prone to go bad, and your door will not close properly hence a battery drain by the interior lights. You could also have a bad battery
Your car lost power while you were driving and it will not start now because the battery is depleted.
Yes, it sure will. The alternator's purpose is to replenish the battery. The alternator may either drain a battery while sitting if the diodes in the rectifier leak current (like a check valve) or may just not maintain the system load while your engine is running. (not keep up to the demand/not charge at all)
The alternator died first and drained your battery shortly thereafter.
You get an error light when you try to start your s40 Volvo the error light says Key Error Try again?
New battery in the key fob may have lost it's memory if the battery has been out for a while - go to Volvo and pay megga bucks.
Bad alternator and/or belt. Your battery isn't being re-charged while you run the engine, so the electrical things drain the reserve from the battery.
If a Kawasaki 650 Prairie backfires and bogs down while driving, this may be due to old battery. It is best to change the battery and clean the filters, too.
While the car is running the alternator should be recharging the battery faster than stereo can drain it. I suspect you either have a problem with the alternator or its time to get your battery replaced. Until you get it fixed, if you don't turn on the radio, it wont drain your battery :) If it is a high power model, it needs to be wired directly to the battery.
from me constantly raping your cars exhaust while you sleep.
It can be a dead cell in the battery which means the battery must be replaced. It can also be a light is on somewhere on the vehicle or you have a stuck relay.
It could be your connection to your battery. If its bumped loose, you would lose all power, even while driving.
One obvious symptom is that your battery will not charge while driving.
Eventually, yes, it will.
Dead cell in the battery or some light is on pulling power from the battery. A stuck relay can also run the battery down.
How much will it drain the car battery when using a car lighter in a parked car to light a cigarette?
If you're looking for exact numbers, I don't have them, but you could easily light an entire pack without an issue while the radio is on. Neither drain a noticeable amount of battery.
Your alternator is probably not keeping the battery charged while the car is running. You need a new alternator!!
The alternator is not working properly. Your car will still run off the battery for a little while then when the battery dies the car dies. Check the alternator or take it to autozone and they will check it for you.
I'm not so sure :(
Will leaving your FM transmitter plugged into your cigarette lighter while the car is off do anything. Will it hurt or ruin the battery?
It will probably keep transmitting and place a small drain on the battery.
All batteries will drain a small amount, even if they are not being used. However, a substantial battery drain would be due to a problem with the battery or laptop. Make sure that the laptop is indeed off, though. With Vista, clicking the power button in the start menu will not shut down the laptop, but will instead put it into sleep mode. This continues to drain the battery. Some of the lights on the… Read More
Usually when the battery light comes on its the Alternator, or a bad wire from Alternator to battery, but id check Alternator first.
Run Infinity Blade on that turd, it'll molest the battery level while providing you with minutes of slashing fun, also put brightness on full and the sound on full, that'll drain it drier than Africa's water supply.
Your generator light comes on in your 73 beetle while driving and when you shut the car off it wont restart?
If it won't crank, which is probably what you really have going on, it means your battery went bad while you were driving.
Engine staled while driving and the battery light came on then went off and then your check engine light is on would it be my alternator or battery that needs to be replaced?
Why does your 1994 probe gt Lose all electrical power to while driving battery dose not hold charge when boosted?
old and cold = bad battery
Answer 1 To the best of my knowledge, the only reason a battery discharges while driving the vehicle is that charging current is not getting to the battery. There could be many reasons for this, and although I can't recall all of them, here are some possibilities. The alternator, or generator if so equipped, is defective and not generating any charging current, or not enough. Even if the alternator/generator is good and working, it is… Read More
The car will stop if the battery cable comes loose.
yep... especially if the alternator is bad too
Charging system problem. Normally this means there is a problem with the alternator.
On some car yes it will.
In a modern car there are a few things that are still "on" even when the ignition is off, there's a clock in there somewhere, you've probably got an alarm as well ASO. It isn't much, but enough to drain a battery if left long enough, particularly if the battery isn't 100% to begin with.
If it won't turn over, it means your battery is dead or your connections are bad. If the car stopped while driving it likely means t he alternator has gone bad and the battery was drained to keep the car running as long as it could.
Drain cleaner is a base and its pH is around 14 while battery acid is an acid and has a pH somewhere under 5. As you would expect, an acid is far more acidic than a base, because a base is simply the opposite of an acid.
This can be due to the charger being faulty or not being official, 3rd party chargers often don't provide the recommended power and so take longer to charge the phone. It can also be due to you using the phone while it's on charge, as this can still drain the battery.
What caused the security alarm to go off and all the gauges drop in a 2000 Chevy Silverado while driving?
There are a couple of reasons that could happen, but the most common is that you're alternator is not recharging your battery fully. While you're driving, the residual charge from the battery is getting very close to zero, and the alarm goes off because "IT" thinks someone is tampering with the electrical system. BUT.....if that were the case, it SHOULD NOT just happen while you're driving! It should also happen while the truck is sitting… Read More
What is wrong with 2002 intrigue when it will start if boosted for few days and then won't alternator and battery check good?
Probably have a 'parasitic load'. This is something causing an abnormal battery drain while the car is off.
