No idea without troubleshooting the electrical system.
Someone would need to disconnect the major electrical parts and check for voltage drain with a meter or test light.

You could have a bad switch somewhere, like in the glove compartment, which wouldn't allow the light to turn off, or it could be a relay not allowing your interior lights to shut off when you close the door, or your headlight switch might be faulty, or anything like that. Start with checking all your lights in the car to see if something does not go out when the car is shut off and write back..

Something is draining the battery on our 2002 bmw z 3. The battery and alternator checks out good. What could be the problem??


The problem is that an electrical component in the BMW that should be dormant when the vehicle is shut down is actively drawing power.
The only way to track it down is to have tests run to see which circuit is drawing excessive power because there are numerous components that might be the cause.

Where is the fuse for the instrument panel on a 2002 Ford Thunderbird?


I'm not sure about the 2002 T-bird, but a 1992 T-bird has a fuse labeled MEM in the box behind the battery on the left side. It's a 5 amp fuse that's for the instrument cluster, the error module memory and the radio.

2002 Mitsubishi diamante battery won't stay charged. I had Sears check it out and they said the charging system works just fine and charged the battery. Didn,t drive car for 2 days - it was in a nice warm...


Interesting as I just started having a similar problem. AAA said thre is a slow drain on the battery (which is only 6 months old). We can hear a very high pitch sound under the hood which may be part of it, but have no idea yet as to what it is.

Hello how do i open the trunk on a 2002 t-bird when the battery is dead?


Hi, you can jump the car at the fuse box. Just use another car or battery, pull a big fuse out, turn the key on, connect the negative cable to bare metal on the chassis and touch the positive cable to the terminals where you pulled the fuse out while you push the trunk button.

2002 FORD EXPLORER DOOR LOCK SHORT DRAINING BATTERY


I just spoke to ford(cause I have the same exact problem), and they told me it's sounds as if the door power lock acuator is going bad. You can buy the part for around $110(plus tax) at autozone, and have someone replace the defective one. Or, go to a ford dealership and they will replace it for some where around $249 hope this helps.

Problem with loosing charge on battery it seems that the alternator is draining it. have replaced both and the same problem. have also checked all other connections on the motor and still no luck. any


is voltage at battery when engine running and headlights on around 13.5-14volts?
if so its not the alternator
do a current draw test with amp gauge in system with everything off 0.02-0.05amp good any more than an amp will drain battery over night something staying powered up or a short can cause this
