SOURCE: Something keeps pulling my (new) battery down in

Hi, a car battery can run down for any of several reasons:

  • You accidentally left the lights on or some other accessory that pulls power from the battery even when the ignition key is off.
  • The battery is not being recharged while the vehicle is being driven (you have a charging problem)
  • There is a key off parasitic electrical drain on the battery because a relay is sticking, a module is not shutting down, or there is a shorted diode in the alternator.

Causes of current drain from a car battery include things like lights that remain on (trunk and hood lights, interior lights, brake lights, etc.) and also relays that may be stuck on, or modules that are not going to sleep or powering down.
An accessory such as a cassette player, DVD player, game console or cell phone charger left plugged into a rear seat power receptacle may be pulling power from the battery. So before you spend a lot of time trying to figure out where the amps are disappearing, check all of the vehicle's power receptacles to see if something is plugged in that may be using power.

Mine did exactly same thing. I simply disconnected it. It does not affect the ride at all.

SOURCE: battery drain

Check the (red) + battery cable where it crosses over the metal power steering lines at bottom of radiator....very hard to detect .....over a peroid of time the insulation will wear thru....making contact with steel lines causing a battery drain just as you have indicated...clean cable in this area....use a inspection mirror and a flashlight.....the insulation will be worn off on underside of will be able to feel worn area with fingers....wrap area well with electrical tape ....Good Luck...

SOURCE: turn signals wont flash on a 94 buick park avenue

did you make sure that you changed the proper flasher, your vehicle has two of them, one is for hazards and other is for signals. to tell just turn on hazards if the flasher that you change clicks then you changed the wrong one.

Battery drain

I would first guess the alternator, have it checked for how much power it is putting out with a meter. If it has to be replaced, it is pretty simple to do so and a cheap one can be bought from a nearby salvage yard. Check out for the nearest location of a yard that would have your alternator

if you have any further questions, let me know

Can a badly installed car radio make my panel go out and keep draining my battery? I replaced the alternator and battery (both are brand new) my battery keeps going dead still

Yes Charlene,
If they didn't buy the correct wiring adapter, And instead cut and guessed which wire did what. The same hot wire for the dash lights goes to the radio too,So you can dim them all. You might have a 12 volt drain happening now. Something is taking volts from your battery just like you leaving your headlights on all the time when the car is parked.

1989 buick park avenue battery wont stay charged

A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

Cars battery was dead after jump starting the car

The cold air is not related to the battery trouble.

I order for your car to MAKE electricity, there must be some power in the battery. If your battery is dead, when you jump it, you can run the starter motor but if you dont put electricity back into the battery, the alternator will not make power. And ... you have the blower on consuming any power that might be remaining in the poor battery.

You might need a new battery and you might need a new alternator in your 15 year old Park Avenue.

Thank your for your interest in

1997 park ave battery dies over night

I just posted my experience in another place on this site but on my 1992 PA the accessories relay stuck closed. This relay is the one that allows you to listen to the radio etc and keep things on until you open the door then all shuts off. When it is stuck closed accessories keep running until your battery drains dead. The relay was replaced and all worked great.
