Extreme cold by itself will not cause battery failure. If the battery is discharged for any reason, such as the alternator did not fully charge the battery last time the engine was run, perhaps something was left ON last time the engine was running or possibly even the battery had an internal short, then another condition can enter into the situation. A battery cell can freeze and crack the case if the cell is allowed to completely discharge. Also, if the cell completely discharges then sits for a period of time, the plates in the cell can "sulphate", making them unable to ever take a charge again. Understand that a battery is nothing more than a storage device. It does not MAKE electricity, it only stores what was produced by the alternator.
the alternator is out
You left the light or something on last night and ran out the battery or your battery died
Discharged battery possibly or trouble with starter.
Alternator is no longer working properly.
A light in your car might be on, running down the battery!!
Bad Battery. Bad Alternator. Lights left on by mistake. Something left running. Exc.
A dead cell in the battery will cause this. Also, any light that is on pulling power from the battery. Another possibility is a stuck relay.
AC runs on the battery. If the car is off and you run the AC, then start the car, it will stall.
Headlights run off the battery not the ignition...
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 would say yes
A dead battery would not cause an engine to seize
A bad alternator/generator would cause a 'no charge' in the system, which would drain the battery while running. Also a shor tin the wiring may cause a false indicator light.
Dead cell in battery, replace it.
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.
Extreme cold! cause we're from Sub-continent, so we know very well what is extreme hot!
Some causes for a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo to stop running include a lack of fuel, a bad battery, or defective spark plugs. There can also be a combination of issues which would need to be diagnosed by a mechanic.
Could be a faulty thermostat switch in the radiator !!
check your alternator may be going bad
No. The power to illuminate the Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) is supplied by the alternator, and does not have to be supplied by the battery. Once a vehicle is started and the engine is running you could remove the battery from the car entirely and everything requiring current would still operate.
why would my starter wire burn, going from starter to battery
Because whoever told you that a low battery would cause hard steering is an idiot.
