1995 stratus starter fuse keeps blowing out and battery keeps draining


If the short was draining the battery then when the fuse blew that would stop the battery drain. So you have two faults. The battery and a short after the fuse.. Have a load test done on the battery to check for internal fault. follow the wire after the fuse and find where it is touching the earth or the unit is is hooked to may be the fault.

I have a slow drain on my car battery. I puller


Use a 12volt test light between the positive battery post and the positive cable with the positive cable disconnected from the battery.
Keep key off.
You will see the test light "light" with any drain.

Any drain showing a dim test light is..... OK
Any drain showing a bright light is.....BAD

Disconnect items (fuses) one at a time and watch the light.
Keep the doors closed....the inside dome light is a drain with the door open!
After fuses are checked....disconnect the alt if needed and watch the light.
Keep going until you get rid of the bright light.

Battery keeps draining new battery and alternaltor


Sounds like an alternator. When it goes bad, your car is forced to run off of the battery , which wont last long depending on what all you have running .
The alternator keeps your battery charged after your car starts.
Try replacing the alternator and let me know if you have any more problems.

Battery drain


That is easy to track down, ok full charged battery, then connect an inductive pickup ammeter that can read milliamps around the positive battery cable make sure all lights and doors are closed and read the drain on the system anything more that .003 amperes is excessive remember that the PCM has a KEEP ALIVE MEMORY and that cannot be shut off so don't worry about that it's so slight that you won't see it.
if you see a drain start unplugging fuses one at a time and lay them out so you know where they came from, keep goin until you get a drop on the reading and that is the circuit that is draining current.
How long does it take do drain a full charged battery?Check glove box lights
trunk lights
underhood lights
aftermarket alarm systems
Amps for the stereo
A bad alternator can drain a battery
