Battery dies over night

Hello I just resently changed the alternator and battery in my 1992 suzuki swift. It was running ok for about three days then over night the battery was drawn down to almost dead. It was having the same basic problem before I changed these parts. I'm just wondering if maybe it's a voltage regulator problem or some other type of parasitic drain on the battery.

    I disconnected the alternator and left the battery connected and the next morning the battery was fine and the car started. So I reconnected the alternator and the battery was drawn down again. I still have to take the new alternator back to the auto parts store but I'm confidant this will resolve the problem. Thanks for your help.

    have u checked to see if any type of light may have been left on that is not easily visible?, examples are glove box, visor lights etc. Also try disconnecting the alternator over night, if it is a rebuilt it could have a leaky Diode, this would draw the battery down

It's probably the door light. This is a common problem and more can be found at TEAM SWIFT. You can disconnect the wire from the door jamb or turn the dome light to the off position. TEAM SWIFT has this common fix more in detail.

My friend has the same problem, turned out that the stereo was causing the battery to drain even though the stereo was off due to a dodgy connection!

If the alternator is bad, and it is cause battery light is on, the elec. system does not have enough power (voltage) for the system to work right,being that it's only working off the battery voltage till battery goes weak. Have an alternator check done or check voltage at battery with engine running, should have no less then 13.5 volt's.

Aside from having a faulty fast idle valve, you may have a leaking intake manifold gasket.

With the battery light on, it is leading me to think alternator not charging the battery. If you can get it started and running, take it to Autozone and have them test your battery and alternator (free test, they bring the machine into the parking lot to your vehicle). Hope this helps.

BATTERY DIES OUT IN 2-3 DAYS.


are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked
