Could be but unlikely....sounds like a faulty sensor somewhere, I trust no one has altered the idle as these are electronic and must not be adjusted unless Technically qualified.

Electrical??? A few weeks ago my battery light started coming on while I was driving just suddenly. So I took it in and battery checked out fine and so did the alternator. Just tonight the battery light came on again then the abs light then all my lights started to dim, battery dropped low and when I push on on my breaks to slow the RPM needles starts jumping around. When I made it home the truck died and wont start now. Any suggestions on what it could be. I have given up on this truck.


Since you've checked your voltage at the battery and alternator and they are ok, I would say it seems like an electrical issue. You need to put the truck on a diagnostic scanner to see what part (electrical part) is malfunctioninig. ... 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Penny fell in to cigarette lighter. I removed penny after several sparks while driving. All seemed well but when I arrive at destanation I noticed battery gage was very low.

96 Chrysler concorde 3.5L, I have consistantly pull the gas after start or it won't stay started. As is the pcm forgot the idle. Once its warmed up it will have a rough idle and eventualy die. What could this be? And yes it started after the battery died and car sat for 3 weeks. Now has a new battery and still not idle right. Do I have to reteach the pcm the idle on a long drive? Also being that the idle is low the lights are dim aswell. I thought maybe the altenator was bad but the test shows

'06 Sedona battery light comes on. Low voltage indicated on radar detector. Battery was replaced ...2 days later the same problem. When battery was replaced, I unhooked batt connectors and van still ran...so didn't think it was the alternator. Also battery did die the first time and could not restart vehicle. Battery was tested and was producing 1/3 less amps than normal.


It can still be the alternator, the alternator can produce enough to keep the car running, but it may not have enough to keep the battery charged 13-14 volts. It don't take long for a new battery to drain if the alternator isn't putting out the right ... 2006 Kia Sedona

My 2007 Honda Accord's battery just died yesterday and it is only 1.5years old. I will be putting in a third battery today. Are the cranking amps of the old battery too low for cold weather starts? Could I get away with by a battery that has more cranking amps to get more life out of my battery?

I have a 1998 f-150 that the alternator just went out on. I tried to make it home on battery power only when it died on the freeway and i had it towed home. I charged the battery (new battery) so I could drive it a few blocks to get a new alternator and now the tranny will not shift into third. It does make a low pitched squeek when trying to shift into that gear. I also had a problem a few weeks ago with the truck seemingly wanting to downshift all the time going down the road. I had the fluid

The fuse failure is a direct result of a short to groundthe car running after removing the car is a tumbler issue or an ignition switchhowever, looking at both concerns you can speculate that the ignition switch is the source ... Jaguar XJ6

I have inherited an old datsun pickup that has been unused for quite some time. I have no idea if there is anything wrong with it, but I jumped the battery (is completely dead, only works when connected to cables) and put some gas in it and it started briefly, then died. Could this just be the low gas or dead battery? any ideas?

Yea, after swapping the ECU my MR2 started. Now to the problem that (I think) killed the ECU. The new one may be hurt. When the car quit the first time I was revving the engine to about 6000 rpm. I drove it for a few minutes and did it again. The engine died just like before but when it dropped rpm it came to life again. This time the windshield wipers are stuck on. I think this could signify a problem in the ECU. It also burned the fuse link at the battery again.


I agree. I would test the power from the ecu. It may be sending off the wall power signals. ... Toyota MR2

My 1996 Pontiac Grand Am GT stick shift vehicle keeps dying. It will shake when the gauge gets to the 1 RPM spot and continue shaking for a little bit and then just die. I have replaced the oil but perhaps it could be something with the battery or maybe the fuel filter. I am not sure.


Wrong, it couldn't be the battery because the battery is basically used to keep track of the time and make sure your car starts, after it does the battery basically charges and runs like the radio etc. The fuel filter would be more likely, but my mon ... 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

Suddenly my 1997 town & country van starts dinging (the same ding when the fuel is low) 3 to 6 times when I make a right turn or go up the incline driveway at work. What could be going on? Also, my battery died. Coincidence? or is the ding trying to tell me something is wrong with the car. If so, what could it be? Thank you so much for this free service.

Check charging system light and check battery light come on at begining of low idle. voltage at battery terminals during high idle was 14.5 vdc, and at low idle 12.65 vdc. engine speed did not seem to effect voltage supply at this point. battery cables were in excellent condition and battery is brand spanking new. is there a voltage control relay that could be bad? what other tests could i perform with a voltmeter? what else could it be?
