Battery keeps dying

Answers :

You definately have a short draining the battery- Try pulling the fuse to interior light/radio memory then hook up a 12v test light between the unhooked positive + cable and battery post{ leave the fuse out when testing other fuses} - If it still lights start pulling fuses 1 at a time and if your lucky it should go out when you find the faulty circuit- Then you have to diagnose that circuit for a short... If it still stayes on with fuses pulled have the alternator checked for bad diodes...Hope this helps

After replacing battery and alternator, Tahoe doesn't want to idle smoothly or at proper rpm range. Idle keeps shifting up & down, and when ever you stop at a red light, engine dies if you don't keep your foot on accelerator.Also, keeps blowing fuse for door locks.


Take out the fuse for the door locks. Then see if the battery still goes dead. If it does not go dead, then you know the electrical circuit that has the short. You could just leave the fuse out, not have power door locks but at least the battery woul ... 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

My 2002 cadillac keeps turning off while im driving. i thought it might be my sound system but i took it off and it still keeps turning off. most of the time it starts right away after it dies on me i just give it 5 to 10 seconds and it will start. sometimes it takes a long time for it to start but it will start after 30 minutes. when it dies on me it just shows the lil battery symbol on the display. also the battery read 14.2 volts ok, sometimes it goes down to 12.5 volts ok. battery terminals


Really is the battery symbol in the display, is not the "check engine" symbol?- Possibly the Oxygen sensor needs replacing as the sympton you describe is usually what happens when the O2 sensor malfunctions\015\012- Had the Oxygen ( ... 2002 Cadillac Deville

I have just replaced my battery for my 2000 leganza and my car still keeps dying only to not start again like its a dead battery, so i want to replace my alternator.

When starting the first time it runs a sec then dies but the starter keeps trying to turn it over to keep it alive. Then I try it again it starts runs for 3 secs then dies and back fires.

I received a solution saying that is the case. I took it to the mechanic, and he told me there was n

My 1984 ford f250 keeps loosing a charge. I recharge battery and drive the truck. When I park it the battery goes low and will not crank the engine. I checked all but the alternator.

If it keeps running it's not the alternator? Thanks
