    heres the deal first i had a deep cycle batter in my car then i put a regular battery in my car they seemed to be being drained when the car is off i checked my amp lights and they turn off................. whats the deal with this could it be my alternator? could it be that the battery is discharged while driving?.......... I was gonna drop my amp to 1 ohm when i got my 150 amp alternator but now its like my car is falling apeat even my breaks are acting up i think i fixed them i gonna go check in a sec.... and ideas on what i can do?

    ok...this I can help ya with....maybe. I had the same problem and I found my alt was bad. I tried the normal thing of disconnecting the batt when the car was running and all seemed good. Then I did research and found that sometimes when a alt goes it can actually start to overcharge the battery when a load is on it(like when you drive or rev the vehicle). When this happens it will slowly fry your battery. When it finally suceeds then your battery will not even hold a little charge. Not even if you charge it all day. Anyway, I bet your alternator is your problem. Pick up a used one from a junk yard for now and see what happens. Hope this helps.

    It is definitely your alt. It should be fine when you get your new one in. As for your brakes. Bleed em and they should work fine. Or you have a leak somewhere in your system...ooor.....you have a bad brake booster(probably not). Problems are listed from cheapest to most expensive..hehe.

    It should not be the install. so it is your back breaks with probs. It is either your automatic brake adjuster or the wheel cylinder. That is the thing inside the drum with the 2 pistons that pushes the shoes out to stop the car. Take off your tire and see if there is a leak from either piston on either side. Another way to tell if there is a leak is check the brake fluid resevoir. If you need to constantly add fluid then you have a leak if you dont then well, you dont have a leak.

    im thinking it has to do something with the electricval system........ like for a while the brake light would come on....... then i had to get my car to pass emessions so the replaced 3 sencors that wernt working..... i got inot a accident now a big one just a tap...... and my car started doing the same things it did when i first got it so im thinking the accident knocked off the sensors and thats why im having so many problems.... but ill take it back in when i get another 600 dollars becuase even if i wanna sell if it has to pass emesions and i preaty sure it wont now.... it even started giving off the same amount of smoke it did before i got it fixed

    If you do auto maintenance as well as you type, you're fukked

    Seriously, sounds like either rear brake cylinders or master cylinder issues. On most cars the emergency brake is mechanical and pulls in the rear shoes, so that's a clue. Get it checked professionally by one of the brake shops in your area. Don't screw with your brakes dude.
