Q: my battery wont charge and its good and altenator is to whats wrong

asked by on

really need to know why it wont hold a charge

My car has 82127 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the battery will not hold a charge, then it may be bad or has a draw on it causing the drain. I recommend having the battery checked to see if the battery has a draw. Check to make sure the alternator is charging and the connections are okay. The most common problem include interior lights or the trunk light staying on.
