2001 Lincoln Navigator Parasitic Draw

Hi All, I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator VIN: 5LMFU28R8ILJ24829 I have had a issue with my battery being dead every morning. I have turned off every switch and knob I could find. I have a 300Ma draw with the car in sleep mode. I have narrowed it to fuse #103 in my power distribution box under the hood. The fuse is for Junction Box Battery Feed. When I pull the fuse, my draw drops to nothing. Can anybody suggest where to go from here or maybe someone has had the same problem? I greatly appreciate your time.

New battery, let it sit overnight and it goes dead.

You have a parasitic drain, something is on a light or a module isn't powering down . To test this you put an ammeter in series with negative battery cable an battery post . Measure currant draw ,shouldn't be any more then 0.050 milliamp's . If it is start pulling fuse's till it drops . You should refrain from taking the battery cable off with the vehicle running , Can cause a voltage spike , take out electronic components . Namely transistors .

My battery keeps going flat and I have noticed that one of my ECI/ECD fuse is missing could this be a potential cause?

A battery that keeps going dead can be caused by a number of things. The life expectancy of a battery is 5yrs. Anything over this in age can cause a problem. If the charging system is not performing properly, it can lead to battery depletion issues. The most likely cause is a parasitic draw which constantly pulls a small amount of amperage from the battery while the ignition is off. You will need to have a parasitic draw test performed to isolate the source of any draw

I have a 2002 Lincoln Navigator. My car starts and runs. The battery works fine. The only issue is suddenly without any warning it is stuck in park, the windows wont roll down and the interior dome light...

do a draw test......disconnect the battery ground cable and place a test light in between the cable and battery. if there is a draw the light will come on. if this happens then pull all fuses one by one till the light goes out, when the light goes out then that circuit is the culprit. good luck

Repalced battery as old one had dead cell the new battery was fitted and went flat have replaced starter and alt but still get flat battery have check all fuses and all are in woking order and to stage...

check the parasitic draw on the battery. If the draw is greater than 40 ma, something is causing the battery to go flat before it should. Recommend you monitor parasitic draw using a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) and unplug one fuse at a time until you discover which circuit is draining the battery.

have you check the alternator possible problem. if not that you have a draw on the battery with the key off. you need an amp meter one that will clip around the positive cable from the battery this will tell you if your vehicle has a parasitic draw with the key off. most parts stores have loaner tools you can use. hope this helps some.
