SOURCE: 1999 Chevy Venture 40 amp fuse keeps blowing when

make sure of two things one is any wires touching at the starter to ground or melted and or is the starter drawing too much amperage causing the fuse to blow.starter may have a dead short in it.

Testimonial: "Excellant suggestion. One of the wires was exposed due to rubbing against the brake lines hence the 40 amp. fuse was blowing. This was finally fixed."

SOURCE: My 03 Silverado has parasitic battery drain. VOM

Disconnect the auxiliary power cable from the under-hood distribution center that runs to the anti-lock brake controller. Remove the ignition relay from this distribution center (this will isolate/eliminate/indicate the problem as the ignition switch). Unplug any GPS add-on device, and any radar detector, stereo amplifier add-on, I-pod, trailer brake controller add-on, anything that did not come on the truck from the factory. These can be frustrating.

SOURCE: 1994 buick roadmaster battery drain pulled fuses

I would check the starter and the alternator, also check the battery cables and connections nd check any circuit with a fuse of more than ten amps for a short to ground. Sounds like you might have some bad diodes in the alternator, though.

SOURCE: 99 LEXUS ES 300 BATTERY DRAIN OVER NITE AT TIMES

Have the battery load tested. This is likely a short in the battery itself and not in the car. You will have a small amount of draw in a computer controlled vehicle. This is very normal for the "keep alive". Older cars with no computer will have no draw. Let me know.

98 Jimmy has a power draw it kills the battery within 12 hrs if you pull the 50 amp fuse for the int batt draw goes away any ideas


Yes Steve I do , that fuse supply's power to the I/P fuse block inside the vehicle . It powers AUX/PWR fuse #13 -20amp , RDO/BATT fuse #19 - 15amp ,MIR/LKS fuse #7 - 5amp , CTSY/LP fuse #8 - 15 amp , CIGAR/LTR fuse #2 15 amp , PWR/LKS fuse #14 15 amp , HDLP/SW fuse #1 - 10amp .Do you know where the I/P fuse block is ? You would need to do a parasitic draw test ! This involves hooking up a amp meter in series with the negative battery post an negative battery cable . Pulling each one of these fuses till the battery draw stops ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy check out Eric the car guy's video on the subject !

I have 1999 Mazda sting 1300 hatchback with a battery drain of .98 amp battery flat within 3 days if I pull BTN fuse current drops to .04 amp the alternator test ok sends out a charge voltage of 13.8v and...


Go back to the alternator for the problem as it is connected directly to the battery via the cable. Alternators charge rate is 14.5 to 15.5 volts and if it is only 13.8 volts then that is battery voltage for a good battery and this means that the alternator is not charging which indicates a diode has failed and discharging the battery

Battery drain


drain is hard to find it could be a short or a component is staying on. you need an amp meter and hook it up between your battery negative terminal and the negative battery cable.turn the key off and check how many amp is the drain make sure all the lights and doors are closed, dont crank the car with amp meter on it will burn the meter. take each fuse out at a time which ever fuse drops the amps down by pulling it out is causing the drain. find what that fuse is for. check that component and the wiring on it for any shorts.

Put an Amp Meter in series with either battery cable

You should have no more than 25 to 40 milli-amps
when everything goes to sleep

If you do start pulling fuses until you get to the circuit
that is a problem,then get a wiring daigram & work
that circuit

If you open the door or turn on the key everything
wakes up,so keep your head in the game.

Iam referring to retained accy relays & modules
for chimes,radio,windows,etc,

Why the big drop when you did the starter?
Got to have wiring diagrams as your thoughts
start to develop

Don't guess,use logic & testing only
