Something is draining the battery on our 2002 bmw z 3. The battery and alternator checks out good. What could be the problem??


The problem is that an electrical component in the BMW that should be dormant when the vehicle is shut down is actively drawing power.
The only way to track it down is to have tests run to see which circuit is drawing excessive power because there are numerous components that might be the cause.

Intermitant battery drainage 2007 cadillac srx


Hi.

First ensure that battery is OK. If battery drains while driving, then the problem is related to alternator. Check that there is no problem with dome light or other device staying on because of a shorted switch.

If the rest is OK and battery drains when the truck is parked, check for contacts that may result in parasitic drains. See : Parasitic Battery Drain.

Regards.

Intermittant dead battery problem since buying a 2005 GMC Yukon Denali XL in 2009 with 25,000 miles. I have replaced the battery twice and local GMC dealer replaced battery terminal once. I don't believe...


A technician will need to a parasitic drain test on the electrical system to determine where the battery drain is taking place. Sometimes the glovebox or vanity mirror lamps don't shut off and drain the battery.

The battery in my car keeps draining. takes about a day or so to drain. it's not the alternator


Sometimes the battery itself is the problem. The quality and age plays a big role. Best way to test is to disconnect the battery cables from the battery after your done using the car. Then a day or so, hook the battery back up and then see if the problem still occurs.

If the battery drained, you'll know the battery itself is the problem.

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.
