Having problems with your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue ?

Security system-passlock 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue has about 150000 miles on it. Has always started fine but was towed a couple of weeks ago without the keys or my knowledge. When I went to pick the car up it was dead, it was assumed to be a dead battery so a new one was bought. The car sat for a couple more days and upon trying to start again the brand new battery was dead. Something is draining the battery. I think the security system was activated with towing, how do you disconnect that or over

Bought the car a few weeks ago. they said i would need a new battery. Put the new battery in it. For a couple weeks it started up fine then one day it the battery was dead. my charging system checks out fine. i boost it off and let run for awhile, turn it off and when i try to crank it, it clicks (not like the starter clicking) and the dash lights flicker with the clicking.

HellornI have 2007 Chevrolet lumina. When I came back from a one-month summer vacation, I found that the battery was dead. I bought a new battery and replaced the dead one.

Charging system The 2005 Montego that we have is not charging correctly. The battery is new, but the battery keeps going dead. We charged it up and started the car and when I disconnected the battery the car ran for a couple of minutes and then died. I am assuming that it is the alternator, but the system check says that the charging system is okay. I want to save some money, but I may have to take it to the shop. Any suggestions.

96 Toyota corolla. I turn the key, all electrical, guages and lights on, but no connect to selenoid or battery. New battery a couple mos. ago. Electrical power seems strong by looking at the lights.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable and accidentally installed the battery backwards. Replaced blow fuses and the car ran fine. After sitting idle for 3 days, returned to find the new battery dead. A jump start got the car going, but after driving 40 miles, then turning the car off and then immediatly trying to start it, the car would not start and the battery was very dead. I think the alternator/ generator must be working because during the 40 mile drive, the lights worked fine. Other than need

Dead battery. I've been through an experience with my 1998 Ford Taurus. The battery went dead in March, 2008. I replaced it, but the car engine didn't run smooth; so, I let the car sit. I got back in the car and tried to start it again in September, 2008. The battery was dead. So, I got another battery. When I was taking out the dead batter, a nub on the cable on the + side of the battery opened up. I notice it was a fuse holder. I checked the fuse. It was burned out. I went and bought a new 30
