KHE Posted February 25, 2015 Report Share Posted February 25, 2015 My wiife said the battery went dead on the '97 STS yesterday after she ran a few errands. The car started fine but then would not start later. There was not a BATTERY NO CHARGE, BATTERY VOLTAGE LOW message on the DIC or even a battery light on the dash. After jumping the car and getting it home, she put the battery charger on it - by the time I got home, it was fully charged. The battery voltage was 12.6V measured at the battery. I started the car and measured the battery voltage and it was 12.4V or slightly less so I know the alternator has no output but I would have thought there would have been a message or warning light. I need to pull the alternator and take it to the rebuilder - It does not look like a fun job to remove it. Hopefully I can get it out this evening.
