SOURCE: Car dome light stays on

The door light switch may be shorting out locate it on the side of the door, you didn't give a year so don't know if you have the mechanical one or the magnetic on if you look at the door near the cab and look for a button shaped like a T then push it in and out it should spring back out check all doors and watch the light If you push the button in and the light goes out you have found the switch that's giving you a problem The door switch closes the ground and turns the light on. If you check all of the switch's and it still stays on then the light switch is damaged internally even if it works the rest of the system it could be bad. The switch is about $15.00 and is not that hard to change and no special tools are required for this job. If you have any questions let me know and thanks for using Fix-ya.

SOURCE: 1997 saturn replaced battery(new) dead

When the car is running check the voltage at the battery. You should see 14 volts. If you see around 12 volts or less the alternator is not charging.

SOURCE: 240z battery drain

Have you confirmed by going out to the car at night that none of the interior lights or lighted visor lights truck or hood lights are staying on? That is by far the most common cause of a battery drain. Other less common cause is a defective alternator rectifier diode Disconnect the battery overnight as well to confirm you don't have a shorted battery cell, that to will run the battery down, it is called an internal drain. Also make sure the top of the battery is clean of any acid.

I have just replaced my old battery in my 1995 Chevy Lumina and now the new one seems to dicharge completely over night and sometime even sooner. What could be the problem?


if a diode is out in the alternator it will possibly charge the battery but also let it drain off overnight hence dead in morning

remove negative cable from battery, hook up a test light to the negative terminal. opposite end to negative on battery. start pulling fuses, when the light on tester goes out. thats the bad curcuit that is draining battery. wait about 3 minutes before pulling fuses. Good-Day!

Car doesn't start


try using a volt meter after you shut it off and watch the meter and see if it drains,which would mean something is still drawing power when the car is off,then try removing fuses one at a time too possibly narrow down where the draw s coming from.if the battery is new then it should not have a bad cell which could cause it too drain.

Battery keeps going dead overnight. I've already changed the alternator which tested to be bad and still having the same problem


if you installed a new battery as well as a new alternator, it should not go dead overnight. if you have a short in the vehicle that will drain a new battery that rapidly, the cable would have been melted already. although, dome lights do have a tendency to drain batteries, but not overnight. use a multimeter to check the battery voltage while the motor is running. it should read above 13 volts DC signifying that the alternator is indeed charging the battery.

Battery keeps draining already put in a brand new alletantor and brattery still draining and battery lights comes on and truck won't start


You would have checked the charging system before replacing the alternator, so I will assume the charging system is good.
If the battery is being discharged overnight or over a few days, you would need to disconnect it and check every circuit on the truck to find the drain.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee battery will drain


Ditto here on a 2005 jeep. We bought it new and found the battery dead on a few mornings the first year. Nothing left on. Did the new alternator thing about 2 yrs. ago and a few batteries along the way. This is what we noticed..... If you leave a CD in the CD player, that is the prime little devil that sucks out the juice. Now, we never turn off the car while a CD is in the dash. Now, maybe not necessary every time, but always overnight and now by habit, all the time, we make sure there is no CD inserted when the car is off. Hope this helps.
