Question about Cars & Trucks
Where did you find it? Kind of reminds me of a part from a gas furnace down in the basement? Also, looks like part of a fan part from an automobile.

The most common cause of this problem is a light or some other electrical item is ON all the time. Only a few things can be on when the ignition switch is off. Look at the light in the trunk and in the glove box or some other interior light. Another cause can be an alternator drive belt that is slipping when the alternator is trying to charge the battery. As the load on the alternator increases the power needed to turn it increases. A badly worn drive belt or a defective belt tensioner may not provide the power necessary to drive the alternator. With the engine off see if you can turn the alternator by turning the fan blades on the alternator pulley. You should not be able to turn it. While you are looking at the belt, it should not have cracks in the drive grooves. If it dose it needs replacing.
This problem could be something much more complex but those problems require more extensive testing. A relatively simple way to narrow the less obvious problems is to check for voltage at the fuse block items. The simple test method requires either a DC volt meter or a simple DC test light. Look at the fuse items that you know should be off when the ignition is off, such as radio, AC, defroster, wiper, back-up lights, etc. One by one take the fuse out of these "off" items and test for voltage or "light" from BOTH sides of the fuse socket to a good ground. If in doubt about a good ground make the same test from a fuse you know is ON when the ignition is OFF. You can be sure the item of ON and OFF with the ignition by checking the same item with the key on and off. You should have the 12 volts or the light when making the test of the item is ON. If you find a fuse that is ON that should be OFF look into that fused item. To be sure that is the problem item, leave the fuse out over night or how ever long it has been taking the battery to go dead, and see if the battery OK the next day. Be careful about leaving the fuse out of a critical item if you are going to be driving the car. Don't drive with a critical item off because you pulled the fuse. You may find that an item that is ON when it should be OFF may take some more complex analysis to resolve the problem. The fuse block test only narrows your search. Good Luck!
