I have a 1997 Dodge Intrepid automatic v6. My battery light is lightup on the dash board so I figuered my battery was dying due to loss of power in the vehicle, or the alternator going out. I took off the negative wire to the battery and the car continued to run, as Ive been told that by doing this, if the car dies then the alternator is bad. I checked the battery and it reads 14 volts, so I believe the battery is good? I do have a sound system in the car and have a 1500 watt amp connected, the

Can an alternator drain the car battery in a few hours? I have a drain on the battery which I can not find. Everything electrical seems to check out ok. Amp gauge slowly fluctuates from 9 volts to 14 volts. I've had the local parts store check alt output and shows 13.8 volts. It sounds like the rear bearings in the alternator are rattling around a bit and alt gets hot too fast. I know I need alternator repair.

Although the PCM needs to be replaced the car still ran great, maybe suffered a little gas mileage but still ran great. Recently the battery went bad so I replaced it, now the new battery died & when I had the car jumped it won't stay on. It turns over & starts but won't stay on & stalls. My first thought is it's the alternator but it was tested & is fine. Question, can the PCM kill a battery or burn ou

I purchased a new car and the alarm keeps going off without sufficient reason. At first it seemed like a sensitivity problem, since it would issue a warning blast for loud noises(slamming doors, garbage trucks). But the dealer said they turned it to the lowest sensitivity yesterday and it still went off again twice in the middle of the night. Could something with the car electrical be setting it off - bad connection, interruption of power supply, etc.?

2000 Dodge dakota ac is fine until car warms up. Once the truck is at normal operating temp the ac only blows warm. I am very mechanically inclined so I have checked everything.

Hi, first check voltage at the battery with the engine running. If it's less than 14 volts DC, you may have a bad charge wire of a burned fuse. If it's more than 14 volts, there is probably a draw in the truck that is draining the battery. If you ... 2000 Dodge Durango
