EBL 50 amp circuit

My battery was dead. I isolated the problem into the EBL 50 A circuit. Ipulled the fuse and everyting is fine, except of course my power seat which is on the same circuit. Is there something that is common to cause this short? And does EBL stand for there is nothing in the manual? Thanks.

My battery is going down over night and i bought a new battery and it still goes down over night.


Have your alternator checked, it may charge some but not enough to keep your battery charged. If it has an internal short (blown diode)it can discharge your battery.

A 50 AMP fuse is a main power fuse. This is not "isolated" that thing probably feeds 5 or more other circuits. You need to get the power distribution diagrams and narrow it down further by pulling the fuses (NOT RELAYS) that are fed by that fuse. Once you have it narrowed down to a single (small) fuse, then you narrow it further by checking the circuits that are fed by that fuse. You must check everything that is fed by the small fuse. The easiest way is using the power distribution diagrams to unplug all of the components (one at a time) that are powered by that fuse. Sometimes you can eliminate two or three components at a time by disconnecting a single, common connector.

2007 equinox battery keeps going dead


you will need to check for a draw on the system, this is dome with a ampmeter installed between the negative battery cable and the negatibe terminal on the battery. the draw on the system SHOULD NOT be more than 50 milliamps. if the draw is more than 50 milliamps, you will need to remove fuses one at a time to isolate what circuit is running the battery down

Kinda depends on what you are looking for!
At Harbor Freight you can buy a Volt/ohm/ammeter for about 3 bucks.
Do it.
Use the Amp Meter set for 10 amps. Connect it between the neg. cable and the battery - terminal.
Repeat the fuse pull exercise. The removed fuse that reduces the reading the most is the fuse to the circuit that has your problem (except the hood light and the interior lights - which will be on during this exercise).

Once you have isolated the circuit you should easily find the bad device - or bad wire feeding that device.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Either there is a drain on the battery or the battery itself is bad. You can start by cleaning the battery with a solution of water and baking soda. This will remove any and all drain in the case of the battery and will get the corrosion cleaned up off of it. The next thing that i would do is check the amps on the battery and take the fuses out one by one and then see what circuit that the drain is in. Once you have isolated it to a particular circuit then back track the circuit wiggling all of the wires and components until you have isolated the drain and then fix it.
