Need to get power to the car. It will not receive power from a new or charged batter to turn on lights, the computer or ignition switch. Will drain power if left attached to battery for a day.


There may be a "fusible link" hanging off the side of the battery that might be blown. That could explain the "no power" problem. Once that's fixed, you can begin to find where the heavy drain is.

After new battery put in, battery is dead in a few days.


When you shut down the car some circuit in the car is using current at an excessive rate so as to drain the battery. To repair you need to locate the source of drain. You can do this by connecting an ammeter to the car battery and while the car is turned off monitor the amperage reading. You will see a draw. Then pull fuses, one at a time, till you see the drain virtually disappear. Now you have identified the circuit that is responsible for draining your battery. If you cannot fix it, at least you know where the hassle is and you can always pull that fuse when you leave the car unattended for a few days so that the battery is not drained. If getting to the fuse is a hassle you can always replace the fuse with some wiring and a switch that you place in the glove box and all you do is turn the switch off when you remove the key. Presto - cheap fix!!!!!!

New battery keeps draining. Don't know what is going on. It's a 2001 ford explorer sport 4.0 l.


Starter and alternator are the most likely culprits(one day). Interior lights and radio will also cause this. But usually takes a couple days to drain the battery.

05 Cadillac SRX battery draining down after a couple days of sitting.


Dealer should have been able to figure this one out!

Best bet to trouble shoot is next time it is going to sit for a couple of days disconnect the battery. After the couple of days pass hook up the battery and if it's dead then the battery isn't holding a charge, if not then something in the vehicle is draining the battery.

If you live in a colder climate weak batteries tend to be more of a problem as temps get colder.

If the battery is more then 3 years old it is a prime suspect.

Hope this helps!

I put a new battery in my chev equinox 2 weeks ago seemed ok if I drove it every day, but if I leave it a day its completely dead, alt is charging at 14.7 volts, the only thing on is the security light on...


You need to make sure that your getting good conection to your battery. If your alternator is fine, as you stated, you might not be getting a good conection. Your alternator may be keeping your battery alive just enough when your driving. Check all connections. Hope this helps.

1998 Corvette drains the battery in less than 2 days.


No, corrosion will not cause a battery to drain, even if the corrosion is on the terminals. Several factors can cause battery drain, I would first have the battery tested to see if the battery it self is not bad. If the battery is good, then the most common is a short. All most all new cars have a certain amount of drain,(measured in milivolts) this drain is for clocks and computer memory's, and it would take several days of a vehicle sitting for the battery to be drained. Don't immediately assume you have a problem if you see 2-6 milivolts of drain on a battery with the key out, now if your battery is being drained after being parked over night, you have a problem. The easiest way to pin down the problem short is to disconnect your positive battery cable from the battery, take a 12 volt test light and clamp one end to the positive cable, and hold the probe to the positive post. Now if you have a short the light will come on. Have someone help you by pulling the fuses one at a time. If when a fuse is pulled the light goes out you have isolated the short to that system. If you pulled all the fuses and the light never went out try disconnecting all the wires from the alternator, 9 times outta 10 do this will let you know where your short is. If the system is not critical like power locks some people just leave the fuse out.
