SOURCE: good alternator & battery, but battery goes dead just sitting

The regulator could be sticking in the alternator. Unplug the alternator and see if the battery goes dead. I replaced an alternator once and the new regulator was bad.

Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls & Defects Database Transport Canada Recall # 2007169 Recall Date:  2007/05/30 Notification Type:  Recalls Audit System:  Airbag Manufacturer Recall Number:  G09 Units Affected:  question.gif 51,000 Category: Minivan Recall Details: On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

Battery drawn dead over night.


There are a lot of things it could be, like you said. You could try testing them one by one with a short circuit/continuity tester like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Sperry-Instruments-CT6101-Continuity-Tester/dp/B000GL7GJG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392099595&sr=8-1&keywords=continuity+tester
Or a multimeter at the continuity setting (looks like: ))).
For the inspection, I disconnected my battery and it reset the computer. However, they told me I needed at least 50 miles of history on it before they could pass it. Just make sure you have driven it for a few days after you disconnect the battery so the computer has some emissions history and you should be fine.

My brand new battery is dead every morning. but a I can hear the alternator turn on. THere is a wire coming off the Hot terminal of the battery that is pulling a lot of juice. Im looking for a diagram


Large wire is possible hot wire to altenator. Should have B+ voltage at all times. Need to do an amperage draw test and start eliminating sub systems to determine root cause. Also would like to point out a new battery does not mean defective free. would load test to ensure no dead cells first.

When trying to start my car something is drawing the juice out of my battery


your alternator may no be changing the battery, and you may also need a starter. I would take it to a part store and have them check the alternator

Hello, I have a 1986 Jeep Comanche, 4 cylinder 4x4 5 speed that i just bought used. The battery is brand new, same with cap rotor wires and the alternator i just bought. the jeep kept draining the battery...


If you mean it is going dead while sitting you might have a short or another issue drawing power from the battery. take your truck to your local battery warehouse/store the should have a meter thet will tell you if something is drawing on your system. It could be something simple, like maybe the mercury switch on your under hood light is bad and the light is not turning off thus running your battery dead over night.

I have a 2001 Diamante, somtimes it is dead after sitting over night, I replaced battery and it seemed to be ok but after a couple of weeks it has started doing it again. Each time it happened i got a...


The regulator is inside the alternator.
There is a trem call tri-diodes.
It's a AC to DC rectifier part that will break over 5+ years or 60,000 miles.
The output will read fine at about 13.6V but under a scope the ripple will damage computer (ECU).
I recommend you bring the car is a GOOD shop or a battery specialized store like Sears Automotive and let them use there $600+ test equipment to check out the alternator.
Make sure you change the belt and alternator at the same time.

Brand new battery dying quickly on my 1999 jeep cherokee. draw was not bad, but it only lasts about 4-5 days without being driven before it dies out.


Never saw an ammeter that had a "normal" reading on the gauge face...You aren't reading the dash gauge are you? Normal procedure is to place an ammeter between the battery and either lead and read draw that way. Then remove each fuse till the draw diminishes substantially. An alternator can draw a bit but it should not be excessive.
Checking charging volts, the meter should not read below about 12.5V even with all accessories on and should not continue to drop regardless of running time. (accessories off reading should be between 13 and 14V).
Also have battery load tested if you haven't done that already just to make sure it is good (even when new) and make sure something simple like a visor mirror light or glove compartment light isn't on all the time.

Dead Battery


Sure..you need to get a volt/amp tester to verify alternator strength. If that is OK then each one of your circuits has to be checked for too much electrical draw. It sounds like that is your problem because as you run the car the alternator takes care of your electrical needs; however the battery takes a hit each night if one or more of the circuits is drawing too much juice.
