Manual says Shift Lock Release issue may be due to low voltage battery, less than 9V. The Shift Lock Release problem started shortly before the Malfunction Indicator Lamp problem began. Could low voltage battery be related to the Malfunction Indicator Lamp lighting up steady? If the voltage being low is the cause of the Shift Lock Release problem, how can you tell which, the alternator, belt, or the battery, needs to be replaced or serviced? If the Emissions Controls needs to be replaced, how mu

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?

Low voltage Just purchased a 1993 ford e 350 shuttle bus. It has 2 batteries 1 alternator. Had to replace both batteries twice due to low voltage 10-11 volts after running a week or so .,so i upgraded the alternator to a 250 amp alternator but still killing batteries.Voltage starts out at 13 .5 14 volts,but after using a/c for awile it starts dropping to12,11,10 volts. bad ground maybe?
What is the condition of the battery cables you are probably onto something about a ground but i dont think your ground issue is going to be at the batteries you may not have a good ground on the alternator. The next thing I would check is ... the a ... 2002 Ford E350
The reading on the starter,battery, and alternator is good after running the car. I have been having trouble getting it to start and then I noticed that my battery light would not go out in a short time and I opened the battery it was either dry or low on fluid. In 2006 the battery died a walmart person in the car deptarment put in a battery of low voltage and would not take my word that it was the wrong one. the car back fired an blew a hole in the battery ;the next one went dry so they change
First thing would be to buy a brand name battery at a part store. Wrong size cranking amps could cause problems. A worn solenoid or starter will also burn out batteries. Just happened to me a few weeks ago actually. Do double check and clean all your ... 1995 Dodge Intrepid
Low voltage, the battery runs low when running the car
What is the voltage you are reading? Is it below 13.2 or so? Also have you checked the current with the engine off to see if something else is working that should not be on. I ran across this twice while working on a truck and car. A relay that was w ... 1994 Buick LeSabre

Im having a voltage regulator problem on my 96 ford explorer(V8 XLT). I've replace my alternator twice already and the same problem is occurring, voltage regulator failed. Obviously it's draining my battery. When I'm driving, the battery gauge bounces, then stays steady at a low position, then all of a sudden it jumps back up. I've inspected the wires and they seem fine, I've also had the alternator tested before I purchased it and it passed, the battery is brand new and i also replaced the star

2003 Toyota Rav4 low voltage light is on after changing Mass Air Flow Sensor, alternator, and battery is good as it's 1 year old. Battery was checked and is good. Car is still stalling and voltage light is still on. Took it for free diagnostic at Auto Zone for a second time and code reads Mass Air Flow Sensor. Sensor has been changed. What else could it be?
Did you have the computer reset after the part was changed? That is what you need to do. It may also take some time for the computer to relearn everything. Was it a bad maf sensor or a probem in th circuit itself? There is a difference. If it was jus ... 2003 Toyota RAV4

I have a 96 cadillac deville with charging problems. It starts up with 13-14 volts but while driving it fluctuates up and down, eventually working its way down to low voltage. on occasion it may go as low as 9.0 volts and then shoot back up to 13. The alternator is about 5 months old and has been tested and retested by several shops always coming back good. The battery is 4 months old and is a 1000 cca duralast gold battery. The wires all appear to be in good condition and the PCM brand new. Eve

Voltage guage showing low reading. Had alternator tested. They said it was bad. Replaced it. Only getting 13. something with engine running. 12. something with out running. A "guy" told me the new alternator is bad. Really? I noticed the big red cable on the battery post looks like the got really hot in the past. Could that be a low voltage problem?
You can isolate the new alternator by starting the car and disconnecting the negative battery cable with engine running. Now measure the voltage at the positive terminal to a ground. This will be your alternator voltage under normal load (w/o batte ... 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
1998 Audi Cabriolet will not crank. I have charged the battery and have good voltage. I raised the car abd checked voltage to start and it is good. I loosened the wires and reconnected them on the starter. It still will not crank. We have all the dash lights ect. The starter does not even click. ( like when battery is low). I am missinf a relay or fusible link some where. If so where are they.
Its probably the starter, Mine did the same thing. If you crank the key and tap the starter with a hammer it will probably fire. If so, replace the starter. ... 1998 Audi A4
'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

I have a brand new battery in the vehicle and it went dead in less than 2 weeks. Would the computer located in the fender well have anything to do with the battery being dead? I have had the alternator checked, and there is nothing wrong with it. I replaced the battery terminals. There are no loose connections, no bad grounds, and sometimes, there is nothing wrong with the van. Other times, like now, it won't even crank because the voltage is so low on the battery.
You need to check for something that is a constant drain on the battery.\015\012 Is the underhood light staying on?\015\012Are the interior lights left on?\015\012Is the glove box light staying on?\015\012Has anything been add ... 1998 Chrysler Town & Country

Also do not hear fuel pump come on with key, radio does not come on, turn signals dont work, brake lights wont work, but headlights and taillights fne. Power locks wont engage but pwr windows will. I suspect battery voltage is too low to operate thngs that require speific voltage and this is why the window motors/healights work; they will run on any voltage but lights may be dimmer/motor runs slower.

Using a volt meter, check the voltage at the battery terminals. If below 12v, disconnect the cables and check again right at the terminal contacts. If you have substantially better reading there, clean the terminal surfaces on the cables and the batt ... 1996 GMC Suburban
