How do i find a battery drain

you can not check for a draw using the voltage setting on your multi-meter. You need to measure amperage. amperage is what is being used and causes the battery to go dead. Voltage is everywhere in the system and what you measured is voltage drop or the resistance of the circuit in question.

With your voltmeter set to amperage remove the positive cable end from the battery. place one lead on the positive cable end and the other lead on the positive battery post. Wait 30 minutes for everything to power down. you should see less than .050 amps. if you see more than start pulling fuses until you narrow down the circuit that is causing the draw.

make sure the key is off and out of the ignition, make sure all the doors are closed, and make sure there is nothing plugged into the 12 volt accessory outlets.

let me know what you find.

Electrical short in 2000Corvette, drains battery

Hi. Best way to find it is old fashioned leg work and an amp meter. You need a cheap multi meter with a 10 amp range. turn everything including ignition off and connect multi meter. You disconnect neg terminal and put amp/multimeter in line between the negative wire and battery. A good reading drain will be around 0.3 amps.
if it is higher than about 0.5 amps remove then refit one fuse at a time until the drain disappears, That's the guilty circuit. Jon

The lights inside dashboard knobs & multi-function display went out

I'm not sure what model Toyota you have, but in a Camry, the cause is most likely a blown fuse. This is a 10A fuse labelled "Gauges" located behind a cover in the dash panel

Abs light is always on .brakes work fine ,which fuse would you pull to put out light

you havent stated what model but any newer vehicle has a magnetis paint on the back of the bearing where the sensor is and i suspect that this is the problem ,but which one is the 100dollar question ,start by checking each sensor with a multimeter set on minimum milliamps and connect meter to the sensor and pass a spanner over the head to see if generates a slight current .if all sensors ok refit sensor and connect multi meter to each sensor and spin the wheel to for for a current output

1998 Honda Accord power outlet bad, can't figure out which fuse

try the fuse on the passenger side marked radio. mine went out awhile back and the power outlet is on the same fuse as the radio. If that dosn't fix it then get a multi-meter and start checking to see where you are getting power and where you aren't. it may be nothing more than a burnt wire under the center console. in that case you have to take out most of the console to get to the underside of the outlet cause there isn't any other way to get it out
