I'm having the same problem with my 4.0, and I checked the 40A maxi fuse, and swapped the rear defroster relay with the one that controls the cigarette lighter ports (they only stay on for about 8 minutes before being shut off by the car). I have yet to solve the problem, but I think it may have something to do with the lighter sockets themselves. I'll investigate further once I get a chance to do so.

1st check all fuses. 2nd why do you need to charge all the time? If your battery keeps going low and you have to charge it all the time , perhaps you need a new battery. If the charger has to give the battery a large charge then it may have caused the fuse to fail on that circut. . Is this device for a cell phone? If it is then you probably blew a fuse. Let me know if you are charging the car battery or charging a cell phone battery.

Bought a 2004 C70 today, & suddenly the driver's power seat moves weirdly. some times works, but sometimes don't move and after 10 seconds it moves by itself while I was driving **;; Which...

start simple. Previous owners may have spilled something in the switches on the side of the seat. Use some compressed air to blow out anything stuck in the switch. Go to gas station and use tire inflator if you dont have a compressor. Put some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and try to clean as much as you can on and behind the switch as good as you can. This should free up the switch and stop the "ghost".

My car discharges the battery over night and everything is off, it is a 2002 Nissan Altima, thank you.

you may have to find out if there is something staying on with the key off.but since the first time this happend was the battery --fully-- recharged.this will take about four hours on a commercial battery charger. a small charger may be feft on overnight but this still guess work. if the battery has removeable vent caps get a cheap ball tester and see if it shws all cells fully charged,if no vent caps read the battery voltage should be 12.7. do not overcharge it. without a amp meter you cant see the key off drain on the batterybut if you remove the cable and have a large spark when touching it to the battery it has a drain. asmallspark will be evident on all cars because there are small drains when the key is off from the various computers on the car your car has about 5. there are also certain things that remain on until timed out,when you replace the cable that will stop draing after a few seconds. so finding a drain can be quite hard. normal things like interiour,trunk lights brake lights stuck on are easier to fix.
