Battery not staying charge
I have a 2005 kia rio, changed the battery and alternator.. battery does not stay charged and will not start. I did have the battery and alternator checked battery is fine. When the alternator is in the car and it is checked they say the alternator is bad, but when removed they say alternator is fine. Either way I have bought a new alternator and had it checked is fine, please help.
I bet that your starter is bad. There's no way that if you just put in a new battery and alternator that it can keep dying like that. Or you have what they call a parasitic draw. Something is remaining ON that shouldn't be, causing your battery to die. Go to youtube and type in "parasitic draw test" and it will show you how to pin point the problem......
Same problem. Belt looked fine turned the alternator but was not fine. Changed belt and tightened to specs and was fine. Also could be computer. Can bypass computer using old dodge voltage regulator running to exsisting alternator.
