I have a 1.8L 2003 Audi TT Roadster. About 2 months ago after not driving the car for a week, I the battery went dead, but I did not get any warning lights. Replacing the battery seemed to fix the problem. Yesterday, while driving I got the battery warning light and the tach and speedometer fluctuated from zero to normal indication like there was an electrical short. The battery is dead again. Where do I start to fix this problem.

I had a dead battery in my 2005 F-150. I bought a brand new battery changed it and now Im getting a P0506 code from the check engine light. I know its just a computer problem and not a physical problem sucj as dirty throttle body, IAP, TPS, or any of that. It never ran bad until I changed the battery. Now it cuts off at red lights and deceleration. Please help...from what I have heard it seems like a common problem. i just cant seem to put my finger on what it is. Thanks
I think your battery replacement and trouble code are coincidental crazy as it may sound but it happens. Ford came out with a computer update to repair the p0506 problem. This code is a common problem. The only way to fix it is to have your vehicles ... 2004 Ford F150
I just put in a new battery and now my 98 VW Cabrio seems to act like it's not getting gas. It all started yesterday with a dead battery. I jumped it off and it drove great until I turne dit off. Then it was dead again. So today, I put a new battery in it. During all of this time, the anti-theft alarm (horn honking) has been going off any time I was jumping it etc. So I'm wondering if there is some kind of anti-theft deal that effects the fuel system? My son put ihis hand on the fuel filter and

When i turn the key over in my 1986 pontiac fiero Gt, it doesnt turn over sounds like the battery is dead. so i charged it and i took the terminal off and touched it to the battery as it was turned on. It seemed there was a dead short and to much current is being pulled. Whats wrong?

I have a 2006 TL in which the battery goes dead if car not used for a period of time (eg 1 week). Dealer told us to lock it no matter what to reduce drain and that drain would otherwise occur due to the nature of the electrical system and security systems. This seemed to help somewhat but had a dead battery again this week even with doors locked. The HFL in our car does not work and shows 'booting up' when activation is attempted. Is the HFL the likely source of the problem. If so, how woul

1996 chevy truck. (HotRod). I have a 421 sbc with 13.5 compression. New motor never cranked.

The battery on our 2000 Beetle seems go go dead every 4-5 days if not used. The battery was purchased towards the end of January of this year and has happened 3 times in the past month. It sounds like it's going to turn over but the if you try every few minutes, it just tends to get weaker. Any reason why? Does it sound like there is a short somewhere?

Hooked up battery charger to wrong terminals. fried battery, which was replaced, now it has a "clicking" sound taht seem to be under or in the black box containing the modules and high amp fuses. located on the inner wheelwell right by the battery. with all of the modules plugged in, it clicks constant. If I remove the two that are closest to center of vehicle, the clicking stops, but it has no power. Sounds like a solenoid on an almost dead battery, but the battery is new. Any help is appreciat

I took my car for an oil change. I was then told, by the technician, that my battery was dead and would not charge. They installed a new battery, but when I started the car, my radio / GPS display was washed out (Very faint) all functions seem to work. It is just hard and annoying to see. It is like an old tube TV with light horizontal lines kind of running up from the bottom to the top.

2002 F-150 regular cab. Idling seems like it wanted to die. While driving would rev up and down wanting to die. Finally died at a red light and had to be towed home. In the driveway it acts like a dead battery.."clicking". Help !
From what you describe, it sounds like your alternator died. The battery's main function is to provide power to start the vehicle. Once started, the alternator takes over and provides the main source of power to the truck, and also recharges the ba ... 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

93 Dodge Stealth R/T - Starts and idles for a minute or so and abruptly stops. Must sit for a while and will re-start only to repeat the process. Just had the battery replaced and seems like it may be the security system. It ran okay prior to that. It does not get driven a lot and the battery went dead and that was when the problem started.
