To turn it off until it is repaired go to the fuse box under the dash board and pull off the cover. On the back of the cover or on the fuze box itself are the functions of fuzes in the car. Simply pull the fuse for the turn signal...but that does not completely solve your problem, it just saves your battery! You can't drive the vehicle legally without working turn signals! Get it fixed!!!

    The fuse box doesn't contains turn light fuse. I even tried removing all the switches one by one. Could it be located somewhere else?

    The other fuse box also didn't helped as well. I called a service center and the technician found the problem in Auto-Cop wiring unit. Its working now. Thanks to all for help. Cheers and happy new year

SOURCE: with the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off

hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

SOURCE: where is the camshaft sensor on 97 nissan sentra

I am not sure where in a Sentra, but in a Quest 1993-02, it is in the distributor (integral). Common problem with Quest is that brown dust covers optical sensor under slotted wheel under rotor. If dust, the bearing is failing and you need new distributor. Clean optical sensor and see if it starts and runs. Get dist. on ebay.

report back on progress.

SOURCE: 2002 mitsubishi lancer ac does not blow cold and will continue to

Sounds like either the a/c relay is bad or a/c compressor clutch is not disengaging. Look on the compressor for an electrical connector, and if you can, unplug it. That should stop the battery drain. I would suggest taking the car into a good a/c shop to have the compressor looked at. The clutch can be replaced without having to buy a new compressor.

What would cause a batt drain on a 1998 vw jetta after sitting over night

Alot of things. Could be a short or a bad diode in the alternator. Or even as simple as a bad relay.

My 1999 Chrysler LHS battery drained why is this happening

Tons of possibilities here. Corrosion on terminals builds up over time, causing higher resistance for the electricity going back into the battery from the alternator, causing it to charge more slowly. Moisture (or moisture in dirt) on top of the battery can cause a slow discharge between the poles (worse in humid areas). Short circuits (from bare wires, corroded connectors, etc.). Devices such as phone chargers plugged into power outlets that stay on when the key is off (some do, some do not). Interior lights left on. Remember, also, that alternator recharging will typically not take a maintenance free battery to 100% charge once it has been severely discharged. That means that, even though the car may seem to start fine, it may reach the point of turning the engine slowly (or not at all) much more quickly. It will only reach 100% again if trickle charged (with a battery charger). Probably 4 out of 5 of my battery issues have been solved with a good terminal cleaning and an overnight trickle charge, and my batteries rarely last less than 5 years. My truck battery is still going strong at 9 years. Regardless, though, batteries eventually stop charging, even expensive ones. Hope it turns out to be something simple.

My son has a 2004 Crown Vic and when he turns on the high beams it causes his battery to lose power so the car has to be boosted every morning. Even when he purposely doesn't use the high beams sometimes...

Ford Electrics are a big PIA. Get a repair manual for the car. Get a DVOM and in your spare time start from the headlights and work back to the light switch. Look for the power draining with the meter. Start by checking the connections and then the individual wires. It's a long tedious process usually better left to a qualified ford mechanic. It's probably a bad switch though.

Bmw z4 battery problems

It could be that the battery is shorted, it could be that the alternator is bad, it could be that the alternator circuits have an open or shorted circuit, it could be something as simple as a loose or corroded battery cable end. It could even be a combination of things like a shorted battery that has damaged the alternator and BOTH need to be replaced. Or it could be even something more simple like a light or other accessory was left on and caused the battery to drain and all you need to do is jump-start the engine to get the battery charging and turn the accessory off. You must test your battery/charging system and/or check all of your electrical accessories to find out which it is.

1990 Lincoln-Battery drained while turned off sitting

If you are jumpering the starter, then the battery is not being drained, the starter may have a bad solenoid.
If the problem still is a dead short, a painstaking troubleshooting is required.
Remove one fuse at a time, check for voltage drop, and see which one is the culprit. Then you woud have to locate each item on that circuit and trace the wires for one that is broken, or pinched & contacting ground.
Also, check at night or in a dark garage, as trunk, door, or hood pin switches may be stuck in the open position - and will keep the lights on.

Interesting note - your having to jumper the solenoid on the starter indicates a possible worn/damaged ignition tumbler. If your tumbler is not seating on the OFF detent, your ACC may still be left on even with the key out of the ignition.

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
