06 bug drains battery over night


On most 12v cars,the #1 cause is a light left on somewhere in the vehicle.#2 cause is a bad diode in the alternator and #3 is a bad battery which self discharges and is usually over 5 years old.
An easy first step is to disconnect the charged battery over night.If it still has a full charge the next morning,after you reconnect it and if the car starts,you can rule out the battery as the culprit.Now,if the battery passed the first test,now we go onto #2 test and disconnect the alternator output wire from the alternator overnight.If the battery still has a full charge the next day we will now know the alternator has a bad diode and will need to be repaired/replaced.If the battery was found to be low on charge the next morning with the alternator disconnected we will now have to go on to test #3 to find the drain in the vehicle. Disconnect the positive battery cable and place a 12v regular bulb type test light between the positive cable and the battery positive post.You should have a bright light on the test light if you have a drain in the vehicle from the battery.(don't worry about a dim light as electronics need a little memory voltage) We are looking only for a bright light.With the key off (as it would be overnight) you are now going to remove one fuse at a time while watching the brightness level of the test light.Take one fuse out, look at the light and if no change in brightness put the fuse back in and on to the next fuse,one by one until you see the light go out or dim.The fuse that dims or removes the bright test light will be the circuit that is draining your battery.Now you have your "battery drain" circuit identified and can inspect/repair the item/items on that circuit.
REMEMBER an open door,trunk or hood may cause a FALSE bright light on your test light because of courtesy light switches and alarm switches so manually close those switches if you need to keep one of the doors or hood/trunk open to gain access to the multiple fuse boxes in many vehicles.
DO NOT TURN ON THE KEY during this test, as all power to the vehicle is now going through the test light and things won't be happy if you do.

Battery drain overnight on a mercedes e320 2003


Unseen things can sometimes brain your battery. A trunk light that doesn't go off when the trunk is closed. Open the trunk and touch the bulb quickly, it should not be hot yet. If it is it's stuck on. The same goes for the glove compartment light.

There could be a problem with the alternator or even a battery that just won't hold a charge as opposed to an actual power drain. Fully charge the battery and then disconnect it for the night. Next morning reconnect it. If the charge is holding it will start just fine. If it doesn't then your battery is suspect.

Something is draining my battery overnight. I have taken out alternater and had it checked out. Auto parts says alter, and battery are good.


How much time goes by to affect the battery? Cars today have many auto-light features but start with obvious things like the trunk light or under hood light that might not be going out. To find out the size of the drain disconnect the battery cable and connect an ammeter between the battery post and the terminal. Large drain big thing small number light bulb.

How do I stop the anti-theft device red blinking light? Car is off and locked and from the window can see the red light blinking.


the red light drain 0.001amp. from you battery.need 1000 hour to drain 1 amp. test the battery if is any good. do drain test on the car.rust and short will drain battery overnight.after market equipment,light in the trunk or glove box, under hood light etc. disconnect the battery and install amp meter. do the drain test. your computers uses 0.2-0.4amp when sleep.anything over 0.5-.6 amp is bad. after you connect the amp meter give 1min. to turn all systems to sleep mode.Is normal the first minute to be high drain.
ones you know something is wrong disconnect the fuses one at the time and note if any changes. if the fuse you disconnect turn the amps low note what system is connected to the fuse and you will know were is the problem

My 98 lumina has a constant power draw from somewhere. I just replace the battery and had the alt tested (it was good). I have to jump the dang thing every morning but if I drive it enough during the day...


The alternator may charge fine but could drain the battery through a bad diode,have you checked the alt for a bad diode?Disconnect the battery positive cable.Put a regular 12v test light between the battery positive post and the positive battery cable.If the test light is bright you do have a drain,if dim it is OK.A dim light may mean the drain is internal in the battery.If you do have a bright light remove a fuse ,one at a time from the fuse box until the light goes dim.Once dim you have identified the bad circuit.If removing all fuses do not dim the light,disconnect the alt charging wire at the alt,if that dims the light,then you do have a bad diode.DO NOT create a drain(bright light) when checking for the drain by turning on the key or opening a door/trunk etc.
Also,do an overnight battery check by disconnecting the battery overnight,if things are fine the next morning after the battery was disconnected then it is a drain in the vehicle,if the battery is dead even after being disconnected overnight,,then the battery is bad.

The trunk lid will not go down all the way due to the motor on the bottom latch not working. Because of the trunk ajar, the trunk lid light stays on. How do I turn off this light and save the battery...


Can you remove the light bulb?, if not then just disconnect the battery until you can get it in the shop, I had this problem once with my caddy, I had to fake out the trunk and get it to reopen and once I did that then I got it to work normally again. Hope this helps! Rick

Having battery drain on Toyota MR2 when the car is left standing for 3 days or more. Have disconnected car alarm.


Pull the positive cable off battery. Put a test light between the battery post and the positive cable. If there is a light you know it is draining the battery. Now pull fuses one at a time until the light goes out then you will know where the problem is. To save time make sure you glove compartment light is going off and check you trunk light.

This should be done with everything turned off and the door closed. with negative battery disconnected. place 12 v test light between the battery terminal and the cable end.(on neg. side) if the light lites up there is a drain. remove one fuse at a time until u see the lite go out. that is the sytem the drain is on. usually glove box light or trunk light or visor light left on or stuck on.

Battery problem


testing for a draw is fairly easily done ....simply disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and connect the clamp end of a test light to the post and the other end to the cable ...if there is a draw it should light up

locate the fuse panel and 1 by 1 pull the fuses until the light goes out when the light goes out simply read the # and next to it it should read what it operates power to

i am going to guess either-> glove-box , trunk light ...i am sure you have looked during the night time the interior light is out as well as the light under the hood as you should see if it was lit up correct /...therefore if you discover i am correct if it be the glove box an adjustment can be made to allow a closed connection and it should be fairly clear how by looking the situation over how to adjust it ,,if on the other hand it is the door switch or trunk light same thing adjustments are easily made .

...if you need any further assistance i am more than happy ta help you
