Question about 1999 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

My battery loss charge

I purchased a battery from Sears 2 years ago. I have had to go back to Sears twice times. Both times I was told by Sears that it was a bad battery. It is happening again. I only have 78,000 on my 1999 ES300. My mechanic thinks it is not the right battery. What is the proper battery??. If it is my car, what could it be???? The alternator was tested by Sears the last times. It was not the alternator according to Sears. My battery cables are new. Someone please help.

They probably had a series of batteries that were bad, and unfortunately, you got 2 of them. Take a credit (as it must still be under warranty) and get another one, or buy another brand. I don't think it has anything to do with your car.

Have something draining my car battery. I have a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville, and I have to get a new battery about every 18 months. I had a new alternator put in, new not used, about 20 months ago. I replaced...

If you have a drain on your battery , it would not take 18 months for the battery to go dead . What do you mean The battery gauge in the dash shows only about 1/2 power, When ? When the vehicle is running ? Not charging ! The battery gauge as you call it has nothing to do with the Battery . That's showing how much the charging system is putting .The volt's indicator is controlled by the PCM - engine computer . With the engine running should show 14.1 volts .if your only seeing 7 the charging system isn't working. The alternator is controlled by the PCM as well ! Have it check by a GM dealer .

What is draining my car battery?

sounds like perhaps it is time to purchase a newer car and let that one find a new home . our daughter had a problem like this and after much expense was told to unhook every thing electrical she could . ended up being the radio/stereo in the trunk.

I have a Scion tc 2005....engine did not start once about 5 months ago...I was waiting 10 minutes and started w/o any other problems until today when it happened again, but this time did not start after...

first if they did check, it was after you had driven there allowing the alternator to put a charge back into the battery, you need to have the battery tested before you had it jumped, this would have told them that it is bad, most car battery only last for 3 years, even if you had a die hard from sears, another way to test it is to have a cell test they will put a load box on the battery and it will tell them what cell is going bad

BMW X3 Doesn't Start

Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .

Replaced battery twice/dead cells

More then likely just a fluke on 2 batteries,but i would check the output on the alternator to make sure it is NOT over charging.
