I have a 2001 s10 4.3 vortec 4x4 with major electrical isues. A completely charged battery drains completely in 1-2 hours. With a volt meter, I have narrowed it down to 2 different possible issues: the starter and the main underhood fuse block. With the ignition turned off and no key in the vehicle the alt draws 8.98 volts ( all wires unhooked). Ignition off and no key, the main fuse block draws 12.85 volts. The alt was unhooked when the fuse block was tested so as not to cause parasitic drain o

Car wont start when I turn the key, although there is power getting to the fuse box under the dash, yet no power getting to the small black clip on wire on the starter motor solenoid. The car will start when the solenoid is bridged straight to the battery terminal. Cant find any relays or fuses between the fuse box and starter solenoid, am I missing something? What could be the problem? Please help.

My daughters 2006 chevy cobal wont crank the battery is fully charged . i tested the batteryit has 12.75 volts at the battery and at the jump start terminal under the hood i also connected a fully charged jump start battery and it still wont crank lights come on strong checked all starting fuses and relays . i ran out of day light i havent checked to see if there is power to the starter yet will do that tomorrow . any outher things i should check thanks
Sounds like the starter itself has gone bad. If you can access it easily you can try to jump across the solenoid. Use a jumper wire from the hot lead to the exciter lead. If your not comfortable doing that DONT. Im pretty certain your starter is ... Chevrolet Cobalt
Car wouldn't hold a charge so replaced the battery and it quit running wont accept a jump. I checked the fuses next to battery and the ALT one was blown went to take it out and it is like the two metal pieces are welded together cant get it out do i have to replace the whole wiring? Before this happen I had three lights go on at the same time they were Battery,Charge & Light, they wouldn't stay on all the time just come on then go out looked for loose wires saw none. car had a lack of power and

I have a 1998 for taurus and the battery keeps draining. The alternator and battery are both good. I have read on how to dete4rmine if there is a drain on your battery. I have disconnected the positive cable and put a multimeter on the + post and the cable when the car is off and i am getting a reading of 12 volts. I have pulled every fuse and relay in the car and none of them stopped the 12 volt "drain". Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to avoid taking it in and paying out th

2006 nissan altima battery shows 12.73 volts on the multimeter but every thing electronic in the car seems like it has a weak battery. When I turn the key to start the car I get nothing at all and the volts drop to 6.5. When i take out the ignition fuse under the hood everything in the car electronically works great but i just cant start. any ideas? Im thinking the starter is gone and its drawing to many amps and thats why it makes every thing in car goes funny.
The proper voltage acceptable is 12.4 volts (across the battery) this test does not test the seperate cells.due to the excessive drop in voltage I think your battery has a bad cell in it.A good battery might drop to 11.8 but 6.5 your battery is no go ... Nissan Altima
My 1994 BMW 525i. is draining battery. I replaced battery. have had alternator checked twice. charging fine. I checked the wires to the alternator> red one has read 12.4. the smaller black read 10.7. I asked a local electrical shop and they said they dont believe that 10.7 is enough to get the alt to kick in.My question is where in the fuse box is the alternator relay. Am I on the right track here. do you think a relay could solve this problem?

1998 explorer intermintant start. New starter. alternator is 6 months old (suppose to be liftime, I wonder if the problem IS the ALT.) When it decides to start. The alt. only chargers at 13.6 volts. But sometimes it shows 14.4 volts. Now with a freshly charged new battery all I get is a click. No trouble codes with my XRAY.Please help Thanks JE

I recently have had a problem getting my starter to turn over. I replaced all the spark plugs, the starter, the terminal bolts, cleaned all connections and made sure my battery was charged, checked the fuses and swapped around the relays but it still wont turn over, just a hard click, any suggestions?

94 Chrysler Town and Country won't start with key. Battery and cable connections are good. 12 volts directly to the starter solenoid starts the engine. All gages come on turning key to start position but only a click and no start. Replaced ignition switch and starter relay - no change. Traced 12V wire from starter solenoid to fuse box and the starter relay and wire is good. Applying 12 volts to the socket of the starter relay results in starting the engine. Is this a failure of the PCM?

Battery not holding charge, new battery,new starter, new voltage regulator,new cap, rotor,wires. Alt.is putting out 12.4 - 12.6 volts have had alt. tested twice told within voltage output specs. charge battery and truck starts right up, but run for 15 miles and lights go dim starts to run rough and will not start back up without a jump or battery charge. I feel that the alt. has gone bad but everyone tells me no. please advise
I agree with you. Drive it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. I always believe you need more volts than the battery has to push the amps along.\015\012The regulator usually is set for 13.5volts to 14.2volts. But the alternator has to p ... 1986 Dodge D150

97 Escort that failed to start a couple times-obviously not enough from the battery. Had it tested at a parts store they said replace battery which I did. Started car and "battery" light is on in dash. Had the guy check and he said there is 0 volts reading form the alternator. I would figure a bad alt should at least show a few volts?? I cant seem to find a fuse or bad wire yet there may be. Also how do I check alt directly for voltage?? Thanks so much. Wayne
You should be able to to check for voltage directly at the the largest of the wires going to the alternator[black with an orange tracer].If you have no power then you have a blown fusible link,from the starter solenoid to the positive battery post.]I ... 1997 Ford Escort
Truck won't start.Has new battery,starter/solenoid.I replaced the main(80A)fuseible link and the 50A Starter fuse(glass)-behind the front driver side wheel.The starter relay was also replaced.No lights to dash,except if I run a jumper from wire side of 50A starter fuse to pin1(W/B wire)of ign switch-then I get the brake battery lights on the dash,and the buzzer for the brake-vac-assist go on,but even then when you turn the key switch nothing.
