Usually it is the keypad that causes this. Watch and see if they are lightning up when the dome lights come on. Also press each button individually and see if they light up. You could also remove door panel and disconnect them and see if problem continues.

New battery keeps going dead when car shut off overnight


Sounds like a slow drain - like a dome light or short in the wiring.
If the battery stays charged when it is disconnected, you'll have to check for a power drain in the car.

My dome light wouldn't shut off, removed fuse, but battery still keeps dying


A Battery "DRAW" Test Should be Performed.
TOOL:: >With A 12 Volt Test Light
Disconnect GROUND Cable @ Battery, Connect TESTLIGHT CLIP End to CABLE End And PROBE TO The Battery, The LIGHT SHOULD Come ON.
KEEP IT ON AND MONITERED While Removing 1 by 1 the FUSES In Main Fuse BOX, Untill the Light Goes OFF.
When It DOES you have FOUND the CURCIUT that is Draining your Battery. Take Nessasary Steps to Correct THAT Problem and You Have Fixed the Problem.
THIS IS ALL AFTER INSURING THAT THE BATTERY IS CHARGED AND TESTED. a DEAD CELL IN THE BATTERY will MASK ITSELF WITH THIS TROUBLE DISCRIPTION

I have a slow drain on my car battery. I puller


Use a 12volt test light between the positive battery post and the positive cable with the positive cable disconnected from the battery.
Keep key off.
You will see the test light "light" with any drain.

Any drain showing a dim test light is..... OK
Any drain showing a bright light is.....BAD

Disconnect items (fuses) one at a time and watch the light.
Keep the doors closed....the inside dome light is a drain with the door open!
After fuses are checked....disconnect the alt if needed and watch the light.
Keep going until you get rid of the bright light.

Electric problem on 2002 Jeep cherokee 6


I had a similar problem, Mine turned out to be a weak cell in the battery. Here is what I did to find it. First, check what postion is the dome light switch in when this problem happens?

Disconect the negitive battery terminal. connect a volt, ohm, amp, meter in series between the negative battery terminal, and the disconected negative battery cable. How much voltage is showing on the meter? open the door does the voltage go up, or does it drop off?
Close the door wait 30, 40 second voltage should start to decrease back down to 0. This is normal the dome light uses a module to control the dome light delay.
If the voltage does not drop down to zero with the door closed after a min. or 2, select the amp setting in your meter, read the amperage draw. This is what drains the battery, the higher the amperage reading the quicker the battery will drain.
With the meter still hooked up remove one fuse at a time, when the amperage drops off you have found the defective circuit.
