SOURCE: Battery keeps going dead.
obviously there is an abnormal drain on the vehicles electrical system. Examples of this are a glove box or conso;e light staying even though you closed it, is there a reading or compartment light on ? Anybody that just says "you need a battery without ALSO testing the electrical system for integrity is not helping,

Obvious that something is drawing down the battery...Put a test light between the negative cable and the negative post of the battery (remove cable first) start pulling fuses till light goes out. That will tell you what system is drawing...you can then begin looking for the actual problem. If all fuses pulled and light remains on ,chances are you have an internal alternator problem.

hi, a couple of problems that cause battery drain on X5's are the heater resistor blowing air out of the vents even when the key is removed, depending on the country that you live in some of these cars have a traffic monoriting system that may be causing the drain, also ensure that you have had no water ingress leeking into the spare wheel well causing the control units in there to become faulty, hope this points you in the right dirrection, regards mark.

Hello raiderfan520....Have the battery "load tested" this will tell ya if the battery is defective, one bad cell will draw the others down. If it's bad and only 12 months old you should have warranty left. (free replacement or pro-rated)...If your battery load tests OK, then you have an amperage drain going on while the vehicle is parked.
This is called a "parasitic drain"
Make sure no interior lights, under hood, trunk lights...etc. are remaining on. I hope you don't need the following information i'm about to give you, but here are the steps to locating a parasitic drain.....
PS...what kind of season are the raiders going to have this year? I'm in LA county and "Manny being Manny" has turned me away from baseball for now.

you need a volt meter. unhook the positive side of the battery. set the meter to dc amps. touch one leed to the battery and the other to the positive cable making a circuit.if theres more than 1 amp or so being pulled,that will drain it in time. sart pulling fuses one by one untill the draw goes away.then you will know what circuit it is on. after that ,start chasin wires to find the short.
