Re: 2006 T30 Battery gets very low after several days/week of non use


  My battery is dead over night, the engine won't start in the morning. Recharged the battery and still low voltage in the morning, 10-10,5 V. I recharged the battery until it reached 12,7 V, put it back in the car, started the engine and the voltage drops from 12,7 V to 11,8 V in a second. If I turn the head lights on, the voltage drops to 11,3-11,4 V.
 It's clear that the alternator is the problem and I'll replace it with a new unit. If the key is not in the ignition over night, how is the alternator sucking dry emoticon the battery? I don't get it....

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Most likely, as memtioned earlier, the diodes in the alternator rectifier short to earth. These diodes are directly connected to the battery through the regulator, so are independant of the ignition switch.

I removed the alternator last night, it's hard to acces it, I think it's position is too low for a 4x4 car. The positive feed, covered by a red rubber was full of rust and green deposits, and the plastic around it was melted. Also, there was a little black box ( 2 x 2 cm ) with a yellow wire that it's missing, somebody removed it. It was conecting the positive feed of the alternator with the body of the alternatort ( earth ). I found only a part of the box, no trace of the yellow wire that was coming out of it.....emoticon

Get a hydrometer and check the specific gravity of the battery fluid in each cell to make sure they are good to hold a charge.

Sorry to everyone who may have been waiting for an update on the charging issue.

I started a new job right at the time of the initial posts and since have been working just under 60 hrs a week and completely forgot about the update.

 emoticon Well... GREAT NEWS... NO MORE PROBLEMS!

The issue is solved and the car and it's electrics have had no issues ever since I did what I was told.

Hopefully this has been helpful to some other people too. If so, let me know and I will pass on the great results to the auto electrician I spoke to in Sydney.

Thanks again to all who contributed.
