Get in vehicle and make sure all doors are closed and liftgate and liftgate glass are closed turn on ignition and see if warning of door ajar is on .if so then one of the door ajar switchs are stuck. purchase a can of PB BLASTER available at your local auto parts store and lube all latch assembleys on vehicle then open and close all doors 10 to 15 times this will usually free up the stuck switch. note spray the latch assembleys really good so it will reach the switch which is hidden in the latch.

Change battery and alternator but 08 Silverado battery goes dead after turning off


You have a current drain in your system. Using an ammeter identify the amount of drain. then pull fuses one by one until the drain disappears. Now you have the circuit that is responsible for draining your battery. You have to check all of the peripherals on that line.

2008 Jeep Liberty error code gate on dash and interior light will not turn off got new battery and still doing it


can i buy a comma? says vanna white?? LOL !
ok, the battery drains, so you got a DRAIN, called phantom drain.
or dark current.!!
we use a thing called an AMMETER (DMM) to find all drains, easy

do you have one, want to learn or just wanting wild guessing.

on any 08 liberty, we check the scan tool data.
oops it shows battery low, wow even the PCM sees that.

new batteries do not fix drain.
nor dead alternators.

get it serviced, by a pro. ?

1: charge battery (rested its 12.6vdc )
2: start engine, scan tool shows, what DTC errors (post em')
3: battery voltage is , 13.3, to 15vdc running, if not charge system is faulting.
4: ok all that is ok, i then key off and measure bettery cable neg lug drain current, if 0.010a to 0.040a its ok, if over 0.1 amps its a drain.
we then find the drain cause, ASK? its not hard with a meter.
but i bet all you wanted is a wild guess.

My interior lights have been coming on by there self at times. It is draining my battery


Sometimes the sensor on the door gets loose and thinks the door is open. When the car hits a bump the interior lights will come on. You can either use the dimmer dial or turn off the interior lights to make them not turn off when the door opens.

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

1999 Sentra Battery Drain


The most common cause of battery drains is that one of the interior lights is on, check the visors if they are lights and the glove box light under hood and trunk lights, check the interior at night to see if any lights are on, the next step is that the Alternator has a failed diode and is causing a draw. Also have the battery tested for a bad cell, that to will draw the battery low.

Battery drains if interior light fuse is plugged into fuse box.


I'd remove panel as/if necessary so that I could remove connector at power trunk latch, and see what happens from there. If interior lights work o.k. and no drain, then you found your source of drain/short.
