You may have too much play in your ignition switch.
If your alternator is good it should stay running until your engine dies from no fuel.
Probably a stuck relay.
The problem is probably the alternator. If the alternator fails to keep the battery charged the battery will keep the car running until it can no longer supply voltage to essential systems and the car will stall.
Yes This Cable Is Connected To A Group Of Cables That Run To The Battery Positive Side, To Allow The Alternator To Charge The Battery.,Do Not Remove Or Install An Alternator Until You Remove The Ground Terminal From Your Battery.
The Battery? No, not typically the battery. That means that the alternator is not charging the battery and IF the engine is running, it's getting all of it's electrical energy from the battery. It means that once the battery charge is depleted, the engine won't run again until you recharge the battery.
on a 1989 Cadillac Seville you can bypass the ignition by running a wire to the starter and one from the battery until you can get it fix
I would suspect a bad alternator and battery, have them both checked at the parts store. A car with a fully charged battery and a bad alternator will run until the battery is drained and then quit.
there is a shorted fan relay
If you have a DVOM, test for voltage at the positive battery cable at the battery, not testing at the battery but at the cable, when the engine is running. Now check for power at the battery post with the engine running, should be the same. Next test the battery when the engine is not running, key off, yes, this time testing for voltage at the battery post and cable, should be the same. If all four test voltages are the same, you have a charging system problem. The test at the battery cable when the engine is running should be aprox 13.5 to 14 volts at the cable. One thing to keep in mind, corrosion at the + battery cable can prevent the battery from charging and that's why the test for the charge system when the engine is running is best at the cable not the battery. If you have different readings when the engine is running at the cable and battery post, (the battery test results are the same when running and when not running, but the battery test at the cable is 13.5 to 14 volts) it is probably a corrosion problem. Clean the corrosion between the + battery cable until the voltages are the same at the cable and battery post. This is not a thorough test for the battery condition as you are only checking volts, not amps.The cheapest way is to just take it to any Autozone , or similar parts stores ! They have the equipment on hand , AND they check it for FREE ! They will be able to tell you if you have a bad battery or faulty alternator . Most of these places are honest and tell you what if anything you nedd to replace . I thought I had a bad alternator a while back . Took it in and tested it . The battery had a bad cell in it .So no need to buy the fancy equipment . Hope that helps !
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.
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
Sounds like your charging system isn't working and you are running off battery power until the battery goes dead. Have the battery and the charging system tested to determine what part is at fault.
on dash buttons by speedo use them to scroll to desired action and one is to shut off running boards but if it is ruunning battery down you may need to unplug them until the motors can be replaced
Until they have gathered enough evidence to build a satisfactory case against the defendant. The procedural clock doesn't start running until the defendant is formally arrested and arraigned.
Disconnect the battery, then connect the freon so that as much as possible will go in, then re-connect the battery and start the car with the ac on high until you get the proper amount of freon.
When you disconnect the battery cables to service / or change the battery , the vehicle has to relearn it's " drive cycle " so it may not idle correctly , the transmission may not shift properly etc. until everthing is " relearned "
Yes. FYI answer Once the engine is running, the alternator supplies the electricity for the car to run and it also recharges the battery. Once you have jumped the car to get it running, you can take the battery out and throw it away and the car will run until you shut it off or run out of gas.Not a good idea to do this. In doing so you risk damaging the alternator.
Yes - you can run a 1200 watt motor on a car battery - until the energy of the battery is exhausted.
Yes by not recharging the handset until it drains the battery.
check to see if battery is connected correctly. and correctly is positive cable to positive terminal
Yes - the back-up battery will keep the internal clock & calendar running until it's plugged back into the mains.
Take out the battery, or wait until the battery runs out of power.
Yes and no. Yes: The alternator will charge the battery any time the engine is running (even at idle) if the battery's voltage is below the threshold (usually around 12 volts) so that the voltage regulator triggers the alternator to generate power (around 14 volts) until the battery is charged up. No: If there is not enough consumption of power, the battery may be charged enough and the voltage regulator will not trigger power generation.
my refrigerator is not running right the freezer is at 26 but the box is at 60 what can I do until i can get a repairman
