In Topic: Battery Drain

18 October 2013 - 12:56 PM

You seen to know more about these things then me. If my alternator is shot how come i can use the car for 2-3 days without the battery dying? If it wasn't getting a charge surely it would die alot sooner?? I put a multimeter on the battery just and it read 12.50 engine off and 12.30 engine on.the last time i charged the battery was Monday night and have used the car daily since then. Surely the battery should have less charge in it than that if alternators not doing its job?

I've had it looked at. Apparently its the alternator. They put a multimeter on the lead coming out of it and apparently its not giving anything out. So looks like fun times ahead replacing alternate. Thanks for help everyone.

I haven't had the car long. I had to replace starter within about a month of buying it and during that time no i never had this problem.

Its a fairly new battery (was on car when bought it) but i wouldn't think it was one of the special silver ones.and the only time I've had the battery light on was tonight on the way home.
