SOURCE: Battery dies after 2 days of non-use. Checked

it would take about 350 hours to kill your battery at 200 ma leakage .. between the computer, radio and anything else that has "keep alive" conditions .. i would think 200ma is maybe on the high side of normal .. to kill the battery in 2 days would require a continuous drain of more than 1.5 amps .. that would be about what the trunk light or under hood light would draw .. make sure those are going off .... alternator diodes can have leakage thats very high .. of course if you are measuring the leakage current right at the battery connector then all leakage sources should be included in the reading .. if its only 200ma then you might have a bad battery (low on water or sulfated) .. Pb acid batteries are easily ruined by leaving them discharged for a while .. and the maintainence free types can only handle a few deep discharges .. .

SOURCE: 2004 kia spectra no a/c

needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

How do i replace kia spectra 2009 horn fuse


Answering this 2013 question in case it can help someone in the future. Horn fuse is located in your engine compartment in the fuse/relay panel which is behind the battery. Recomment you disconnect your battery before removing cover. If you do not have your owners manual to locate it, you can download it free here: https://carmanuals2.com/kia/spectra-2009-owner-s-manual-54462. Attached images that may help as well.

My alternater and battery test good on my 01 kia spectra.But, After putting the fully charged battery in my car, it slowlky died in on ly a few blocks drive?


Connect an ammeter in series with the battery positive terminal and battery positive lead. With ALL systems off, including alarm, door lights etc and with doors closed you should have a reading of only 0.03 amps.I'm guessing that yours is higher as it sounds like you have a parasitic voltage drain.If indeed it is higher, then disconnect any alarm system first and check your amps again. Every time you disconnect something, go back and check your amps.Once you get your amp drain back to normal, then you have managed to disconnect the system responsible for the high current drain.
The most likely candidates are always the alarm system, then stereo, then GPS tracker. After that you will have to start pulling more fuses, one by one and letting the vehicle rest for a few minutes after each thing is disconnected before taking a reading.
BTW, if it is the alarm which is drawing a high amp drain, then it is more often than not the alarm siren back up battery which has failed.
Good luck.

Kia 2004 Spectra EX heater blower fuse keeps going bad .


You will probably need to replace the blower motor itself since the motor is requiring too much current to operate. It will continue to blow fuses until repaired or replaced.

I live in Canada - I have a 2005 Kia Spectra. When the weather starts to get chilly, The car has problems... When I start it in the morning, the interior lights, rear defrost, brake lights, head lights,...


I am suprised that a mechanic told you it might be the battery. Remember this in the future: If the battery is strong enough to turn an engine over, it is strong enough to do every other possible thing you could throw at it in a car. It takes several amps to turn that starter. It only takes a couple at the most to run that other stuff you mentioned. ' Chances are, you have an issue at the fuse box. All of these separate problems have the commonality of going through this box. Have this check out for any abnormalities (looseness, hot connections, etc.)
