Why won't my battery stay charged
I have a Chevy Equinox 2012 and my battery light keep
coming on so I got my battery charged and it read good, so
I put it back in the car and my battery went dead again, so
thought that it was my alternator, so I got a new alternator I
put a new alternator in and it did it again my battery went
dead. I don't know what to do someone please help. What
do I do know
Replace the battery.
I replace the battery and then my new battery did the same thing and then I thought that it was my alternator, so I got a new alternator and the battery went dead again. I checked the corrosion didn't see any on the wires. I don't know what to do.
Ok,It sounds like you have a parasitic draw,
I looked up what you said that it could be and I well go and get a multimeter to test the battery and alternator thank you very much
Suggest you get a meter and measure the voltage on the battery in the car with the engine off and then running. Should be 12. 5 off and 14.1 running. Readings are approximate, but you should see around 2 volts difference between off and running. Less than 12 volts off, indicates a defective battery, especially if you reading 10 or 11 volts.
