Dodge truck battery drains overnight. new battery installed


Seen this "mystery drain" many times. Check spark at the battery to see how big the drain is. For this simple test, blow away any (explosive) battery charging fumes. Leave one terminal on and gently touch the other to its post in fairly dark surroundings. Then try it again with the wires taken off the alternator. Your spark is now probably much less. Usually bad diodes leaking electricity backwards through the alternator cause this drain. Replace the alternator or the diode pack inside it. Some mechanics recommend actually measuring the drain.... hahaha. OK whatever.

Light on dash reads "check


nancycmixon, When you see this "check your charging system" you need to have the alternator checked. This is the main component for the charging system. A normal alternator will put out 13.6 to 14.6 volts. A few tenths of a volt either way won't mean too much but if they are extremely over or under these values means you have a bad alternator. I believe that your vehicle has a voltage meter in the dashboard and it will usually read in the thirteen to fourteen volts range. As far as your battery losing its charge overnight means that you have another problem and that is you have what is called a parasitic drain. There are a certain amount of parasitic drains already in the car with the radio memory and maybe a clock that constantly displays the time and the antitheft system in the car. These will not drain your battery overnight. You have something else draining your battery that is your problem. Have the alternator checked and mention the battery drain. There is test for this but it is too lengthy to post here. Sorry about that. Good luck with this.

I have a bmw 2001 330ci convertible which had the alternator replaced twice in a month and half.the mechanic is claiming that there is an electrical problem and he cannot figure it out and to go to the bmw...


it seems like something is draining your battery while the car sits overnight. causing the battery to get weaker and weaker putting stress on the alternator making it fail prematurely. the dealership will do a paracidic drain test where they'll find out what is draining your battery while your car sits overnight. it could be a bad module somewhere that's staying on when it shouldn't be.

Battery drains overnight. Oldsmobile Aurora 2001 Have checked all fuses and relays. Keep being told I have a bad battery but this is not what Sears tell me. They replaced one battery although they did not...


Check the body control module located on the drivers side above the brake pedal. It is a black box very easy to change. You can find them online from 60 to 100 dollars.

Conversely it could also be the multifunction switch. This is a little black box near the end of your turn signal level underneath the steering wheel cover. It can cause a ticking noise to be randomly heard and cause your parking lights to flicker or stay on, draining your battery. The switch can cost $800 dollars to replace. However, the unit can be cleaned and repaired with contact cleaner and compressed air.

Battery drains overnight.


Alternator. The regular inside the alternator has an open diode. Disconnect the battery overnight and it will start the next morning. The alternator will need to be replaced to fix the problem.
