Battery post are overheating
I got my front and rear brakes done the other day
at the mechanic shop. I drove home, I got up and
want to work the next day. I drove to work and the
battery light came on. The next day the battery
light and the check engine light came on this is
been happening for the past 4 days. I lifted up the
hood today. And the battery cable terminal top is
melting and cable are burn. any suggestions
You have a dead short somewhere, check the wiring from the battery to the starter, alternator and grounds.
Also have the battery checked. Possible short in a cell of the battery.
Sounds like the short could be a pinched battery cable somewhere between battery and starter, positive or negative. Brakes don't have anything to do with it but possibly pinched wire or something like that during the work you had done
Thank u, i was thinking the wiring too on battery cables. thank u again
I just put a new starter in and the battery Junction starter box is still running hot it's over 15 voltage
Almost sounds like the alternator is putting out too much voltage, which would be the voltage regulator for the alternator. At the battery if you check with a volt meter with the vehicle running, there should be from like 13.5 to 14.5 DCV.
I took my car in to a shop an the guy fixed it. He said the only thing he did was the post needed to be tighted so he cleaned the burned part off, put some lubrication on it and tightened the nuts. So I drove my car on the freeway and i pull over to test it my self the voltage is run at 13.99 to 14.29 its good to go:) happy happy happy
It was the positive side that he cleaned up, there was no corrosion just a bad connection
It was the positive side that he cleaned up, there was no corrosion just a bad connection I believe the first shop i took it to, unloosen that nut
That would do it, glad you found it.
