LeSabre Custom 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 298,000 miles


About a month ago,the battery would start going down in power. If I did not crank it for 3 days, the battery would be so weak that it would not crank. If I cranked on the 2nd day, it would start, but you could tell that it was going down. If cranked every day then there was no problem. At least for now that seems to be the norm.

I've had a mechanic check some of the circuits, but not a lot of attention put into the matter. The circuit for the radio did not work. The interior light and dashboard light did not either. Although the lower interior lights did have a shortage in it and I had the bulb taken out to eliminate the distraction.

Any help would save my receding hairline.

This car has an intermittent charging system problem which occurs more frequently in Summer. The car died on the highway due to this also. I changed the alternator more than 5 times. Took it to the dealer and a number of Auto electric shops. They checked the wiring, etc. Still that only made me to lose money rather than getting a fix. Till now it is not yet resolved.

Another annoying problem with this vehicle is the water leak. When there is a rain, water leaks and fills the trunk and rear side floor.
