Assume you mean drains of power not fluid. Does battery light show on dash with engine running. Make sure that the alternator drive belt is correctly tensioned (longest side betwen pullys move 1/2" up/down). If it takes a few days to loose charge temp fix is to use a solar battery charger that can charge battery when car is parked. Hope this helps.
My wives car battery kept going dead and had to be recharged often because it wasn't driven enough to keep the battery charged. A friend told me about the Solar Panel and I bought one and haven had a problem since. It really works great not only for the car battery but also for Trucks, boats, camping gear and RVs that have a 12V Battery. It is available at Harbor Freight Stores. Copy this site
A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

I would start by stopping or calling a dealer regarding recall/technical service bulletin regarding your throttle position sensor. Have you VIN & Mileage ready, to see if it's covered under powertrain warranty.
I would say that the battery is low from sitting. Some alarm systems have a low voltage indicator that sets off the alarm. The flashing lights and clicking (alarm module) under the dash are indicative of just such a problem. Have the battery charged and consider disconnecting it or you can purchase a solar charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter to keep the battery charged (usually under $30 @ Lowes). However if you remove the battery is may you to lose radio codes etc... I believe the solar charger is the best option at this point. Have someone give it a boost with jumper cables or a charger to stop the flashing and clicking in the interim. Thanks for using Fixya and please post a comment and rate my assistance.
the best way to test this is to take off the battery and let it stand for a time if the battery still gos flat its the battery its self,, if its good after a week or so use an avo meeter to find out how much of a leak you have got, if its only say about 100ma's or so its the alarm draining the battery any more than this look at the alternator this could be were the leak is draining back all cars leak a small amount of curent from the battery if left standing my 4x4 would have a flat battery in a month if i left it stood
the way to get around this is to get a 12 volt solar charger the bigest one you can get your hands on say at least 2.5 watt's there about £20
it only needs day light to charge the battery up but full sun light it better
plug it into the cigarette lighter socket and that will keep the battery charged up when you leave the moter standing around unused byt do take it off before you start the engine up or your going to cook the charger up,,my 4x4 never ever had a flat battery after i fitted a solar charger it was the best £20 i ever spent,, its now keeping my motor bike battery charged up!!!!!!!!
Is it turning over at all or is the starter at least clicking? Check the water in the battery if it has removable caps. If the water is low then fill it with distilled water. If the battery went too far down on juice it may have a dead cell and need to be replaced. You could try a slow charge for 24 hours and see if the battery makes a recovery. They make a little solar trickle charger that has a solar panel that goes on your dash and has a cigarrete lighter plug. Something like this can keep your battery from dying when on long vacations. If the car is in the garage it comes with a long cord to run the panel outside.
absolutely. solar chargers are out there, most electronic shops will have them. get at least a 7 watt one. or a new deep cycle battery will easily handle being in storage for a week. so long as doors are all shut tight.
Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.
