SOURCE: Factory Stereo Drains Battery

I have had this problem with a few of my cars and I thought the same that my battery was gettin drained by the stereo but really my battery was going bad hich resulted in the radio staying on for some odd reason, but i replaced the battery and all is good with no more problems, so I would take my battery down and have it tested.

SOURCE: 2001 Monte Carlo battery goes dead over night

9 times out of 10 it is the factory amplifier. I had this same problem and it was the amplifier. Disconnect the amp located in the trunk by the speakers and see if the drain continues. You will not have music, but having the amp replaced with an aftermarket one will solve this problem,

SOURCE: I have prob.with battery going dead. while

It could be quite a few things, but if you could get a hold of a hall sensor attached to a digital multimeter, you might be able to find where the draw is coming from.

The hall sensor can detect current in a wire, so basically with everything on the truck off, you start at the battery and try to find current draw. There should be some current in your large + battery wire, just follow that out and test each wire where it splits off and it should tell you more information.

Some local parts stores have alternator testers where they put a clamp probe over the alternater wire... this is a hall sensor. Some local parts stores might be nice enough to let you borrow it out in the parking lot to try to trace the problem.

Not a specific answer, but hope it helps get you somewhere to start.

Battery drain wont start


If the battery is new and ok, and the alternator tests ok, there may be another accessory in the car that is causing the drain. Use an ammeter and one by one pull the fuses out of the fuse box, noting which one causes the drain to go away. There should be no more than .2 Amps draw in a normal vehicle. If it's 2 or 3 amps, this can lead to a drained battery in a day or two.

2 things, not enought cold cranking amps, or while you where trying to start the car the brushs inside the starter caused a ark on the armature causing the starter not to be working at 100% option 1 have a drain test done or 2 replace the starter the drain test will show how much amps its taking to spin the starter if its pulling a high amount of amps/votage to spin the start then replace starter

Something keeps DRAINING the battery?


If you disconnect the negative battery cable and connect a 12V test light between the battery negative post and the negative battery cable terminal the light will burn if there's a draw. Make sure all electrical consumers are off and all doors closed when doing this draw test. If the light is on start pulling 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, when it goes out that's the circuit that has the draw. Trace it from there.

There is something drawing amps(voltage)from the battery.It can be anything,from a clock,in the radio,to an amp,or a light on in the trunk,or under a hood.

Buick century 2003, slow drain overnight, wont start in morning


To know for sure you need to do parasitic draw testing ! Not looking for a magical fix on here . has anyone ran into any issues that may cause drain, like glove box light switch etc,???? In my thrity years of repairing vehicles have seen a lot of thing's cause this problem .Back in the 80's when i first started at chevy dealer saw glove boxes stuff full ,to the point light would stay on . These day's more like a module not powering down when it's suppose to. Hooking up a amp meter between the neg. battery post and neg. cable an checking amp draw. If it's over 80 miliamps you have a draw on the electrical system. Pulling fuse's till the draw goes away . find what all that fues powers and isolate the different circuits till the draw goes away . That's kind of the long way now a days . There is a much easier way ,voltage drop testing accross the fuse's .

Battery goes dead when car sits 3-5 days 98 park ave


Obvious that something is drawing down the battery...Put a test light between the negative cable and the negative post of the battery (remove cable first) start pulling fuses till light goes out. That will tell you what system is drawing...you can then begin looking for the actual problem. If all fuses pulled and light remains on ,chances are you have an internal alternator problem.
