Charge the battery start the engine and confirm that the voltage at the battery is about 14 volts with engine running . If not it is likely the alternator is bad or the electrical connections from the alternator to the battery are defective.

A significant drain from the battery can be determined by observing the battery voltage after stopping the engine.

If it is under 12 and continues to drop trouble shoot for battery drain. If you suspect the radio pull the fuse and observe.

Fan relay switch


The fan relay could be defective, especially if the fan continues to run after shutdown and drains the battery.

Car battery consitently drains totally..battery is 11 mos, starter too and alternator is 10 mos...can't locate what is constantly causing drain...battery has been fully recharged and problem continues


That's tough to figure out because these newer car always have a slight draw on the battery. What you can do is disconnect the negative cable from the battery and put an "amp" gauge (ammeter) in between the (-) battery cable and the (-) terminal of the battery (DO NOT TRY TO START THE ENGINE YOU WILL FRY YOUR GAUGE). If there's a substantial draw on the system it will show up on the gauge, now start pulling the fuses on at time until the draw goes away. That will tell you witch circuit is drawing the battery down, you may want to start with disconnecting the battery terminal of the alternator, I know you said it's new but if the diodes are bad it drain the battery. One other thing you could try, is leaving the battery disconnected to see if the battery goes dead on it's own, you may have a defective battery.

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery


bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.

Electric fans runs after car is shut off, drains battery


Having the fan run on for a bit after the engine has stopped is not abnormal in itself, but 20 minutes sounds excessive.

If the fan does eventually shut off, I'd consider changing the thermoswitch (this is a sensor screwed into the radiator somewhere near the bottom, with a pair of wires connected to it - to change it, you'll need to drain the cooling system).

If the fan stays on continuously until the battery is completely flat, see what happens when you unplug the wires from the thermoswitch. If this stops the fan, you need to replace the thermoswitch. If it doesn't, then you need to examine the wiring associated with the switch and the fan, looking for damaged insulation.
