Check and make sure no interior lights are on, the most common is the vanity lights in the visor drawing the battery down or the interior lights coming on at night from a defective switch inside one of the doors
Well, something is on if the battery is dead. Pull the interior light fuse, and the clock fuse, disconnect the negative battery cable and put a 12 volt test light between the battery terminal and the cable...Likely it will light. Then pull fuses one at a time and observe if the light goes out. Keep disconnecting until you get the light to go out. Do not rule out the new alternator, stuff happens.
it is probably in the door jamb. Look for a plunger(black) or a sliding switch. Unscrew it, take off the wiring. It should shut them off, you just wont have lights when you open that door. Try all the doors until it goes off.
Well if lights are not staying on then you have a draw of power somewhere. Easy way to find out is volt meter. You take off negative cable and put one end of meter to battery post and other to wire dont let the wire touch post or anyother metal of vehicle. Then go through your fuse box and pull fuse's one at a time until you see voltage on meter drop. Meter should should a (-)negative voltage at start and get smaller when right fuse is pulled take notes and pull all one at a time and replace back in orginal spot. If you find one that really lowers the negative voltage draw on meter good chance you found where problem is. Id start by checking all interior lights first, including glovebox.
easy solution that could help, when your driving turn the dimmer switch all the way down to complete off position, also the 05 durango (all versions) come with battery saver that will auto shut off lights to prevent dead batt. also if the dimmer switch all the way off does not stop the problem i would suggest the salvage yard and pick up a used dimmer switch. the used one will be cheaper then new (in my area only a few bucks). hope that helps
yes there is a fuse.............sorry I'm not familiar with the outback but if you consult your owners manual and look up fuse in the index there will be instructions to locate the fuse box and it will tell you which one is for the dome\courtesy\interior light hope this helps....good luck!
I have heard there is a door sensor relay that can cause this problem when it goes bad, however i have not been able to locate this relay.
What i did do to better the situation is pull fuse 31 (15amp) out of the fuse pannel under the driver side dash and this will disable all of the interior lights and nothing else. I know this does not fix anything but at least i dont get dead batterys anymore.
