Re: Hi I'am having trouble with my battery going...
Sure! I have the same problem. Problem is, that radio is not wired into your car's electrical system properly to cause this. Rather than take it to an expert for $$$$, I decided to do this. I pulled the radio head out and found the hot wire ( it was red) and put an inline shut-off switch there that is mounted below the radio on the dashboard. That way, I can shut off the drain whenever the car is parked. Be Blessed.

its possible that the coils of the anternator are worn out. then the batterie dont charge.take voltmeter and see if the engine, is running ,if you read some 14.50 volts on the batterie is good. if you read 12 or 13 volts is bad the anternator
You have a random electrical short in the system and it is on the acc. side of your ignition system.Systems such as interior lights, glovebox light, brake lights, memory circuits for onboard computer, radio and some aftermarket components. Without me being able to see your car it is very hard to determine the cause. First determine that the battery is dead. Its possible that the battery cables have a bad connection, not at the battery but at the starter sol. or the battery cable ground connection on the engine. Clean these connections to see if you fixed it. If not then after that you will need to remove the poss. battery cable take a volt ohm meter and put the black lead to the poss. post of the battery and the red lead to the cable, set the meter to 10 amps BEFORE you hook it up. Then wate until all systems have timed out when this happens the needle will drop. If not then you have a direct short. If it does drop it should drop to less then 2 amps (that is normal) if it is above that you have a drain on the battery. Before you start this test make sure the key is out of the ign. then remove the interior light fuse that way you can open the doors without resetting the timers. Watch the meter and remove one fuse at a time, if the needle drops then that is the circuit that is giving you the trouble. Find out what that fuse controls and repair as needed. Hope this helps. Let everyone know if it did OK
I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start. End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya
Check all the light in the car, one must be on. Check the sun visor lights first. Others include under-hood light, trunk lights and interior lights that come on by themselves due to faulty switches. Other reasons are a bad diode in the alternator, disconnect it and see what happens..
More then like it's the instrument cluster . .Plus you probably have no idea of how complex these are . Has microprocessor inside with logic programmed in . Taking it to a qualified repair shop an having it diagnosed would be your best bet . Hooking up factory scan tool to see if the instrument cluster will communicate with the tool , an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's .Messing with thing's you have no clue about will only make it worst . YES , changing the PCM would need to be programmed ,dealer only .
I actually have two thoughts on this. The first thing that comes to mind is that the dealer may have sold you a defective battery. The second thing that comes to mind is that your alternator may not be charging properly. If your alternator is still charging, but charging at to lower voltage your battery will still maintain a charge but will go dead over time. I would ask your dealer to perform a load test on your charging system in order to figure out what is going wrong. I hope this helps you out.
I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!
