Temporary fix until you find someone who knows.
When you pull into your place to park the car for the night, or whatever, go ahead and unhook the battery. Re-hook up the battery when you are ready to drive it again. That will at least keep you from not driving it at all.

SOURCE: Car Battery draining over night

Something is shorted and it could be very difficult to find sometimes. It could be something as simple as a button being pressed when it shouldn't turning on a light or feature that runs all the time, but in a 2001 that is unlikely as it should turn off all lights after a certain period of time. It could be something in the radio. What I suggest is to pull one fuse at a time for accessories, check your manual for what each fuse powers. If the battery still drains with that fuse out then put it back in a pull another. When you find the fuse that allows your battery to keep it's charge then you will have a much smaller field of offending components.

For example, if you pull the fuse that powers the radio and heater, and the battery keeps it's charge then you know it is either the heater or radio causing your problem.

This can take a few weeks to do completly but won't cost you a penny to do.

Your truck won't start -battery is dead -charge overnight and check voltage- it should be 12-13.5v in the morning- when the truck starts check the voltage at the battery while the motor is running-you should get a reading of 13.5-14.5v. If battery won't charge overnight it may have a dead cell and needs to be replaced- if you get a reading of less than 12v with motor running your alternator needs replaced -cheers Denny

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 and brake lights are on

Could be a problem with the alternator or the hydraulic brake system.
You would need to check the brake fluid and see if the battery is being charged by the alternator.

I have 2 problems 1. my low coolent light keeps flashing an staying on its full of fluid an 2. good battery in car changed altinator an now the battery wont hold a charge what could the problem be

The switch in the coolant tank that turns the light on can stick due to contamination from old coolant.Replace this switch,or leave it disconnected.If your battery drains overnight,there is likely a draw,possibly trunk ot glove box light on.If the problem started when the alternator was replaced,it could be a shorted diode in the alternator.

My murano keeps running down battery and loses power before it cuts off completely

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Is the battery new? If not then the battery may have reached it's break point. If the battery is faulty, it tends not to hold charge. That's why even you have it charged it will eventually fail and will surely have power loss.

If the battery is new then the problem can be on the alternator. If the alternator is faulty, it tends not to return the discharged current. I strongly suggest that you have the alternator replaced to resolve the issue.

If the problem still persists even when the battery and alternator is new, have the electrical wirings checked. If there are cut or loosen wires, this issues occurs. I strongly suggest that you visit an auto electrician to trace it out.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2004 Hyundai elantra. When driving all my gauges turn off including my odometer and speedometer. My car loses power and the automatic trans. has trouble shifting. My battery completely dies,...

I am having the same problem with my 2004 Elantra. I have had the alternator tested twice and did replace the battery. This morning I had it running ad put a volt meter on it ( red to the battery pos black to the engine block) I did get a reading of 14 volts for about 30 seconds then the idle lowered and the voltage dropped to 12 volts. I tried this again later but could not get a voltage reading above 12 volts with the motor running. Any suggestions?

Help stuck n storm..where is fusebox 2004 murano windshieldwipers

There's no need to remove the fuse to change wiper blades.
If there are electrical problems the fuse locations are driver's bottom left near steering wheel, and under the hood. Under the hood is the ipdm located on the passenger side near the alternator. More fuses can be found beside the battery.
If your wiper motor runs but wipers don't move, the linkage is disconnected.

My battery light stays on and the battarie will not charge. could it be a fuse or do i have to change my alternator?

You will need to test your charging system on your car and verify that it is working. The alternator should be putting out 13 to 14 volts. More than likely it is the alternator. Many places offer free battery/charging system tests because they would like to sell you a battery or alternator. Other places will do it for a minumal fee. You can also buy a handheld unit that can test the charging system and battery.
