There is a sensor that levels the vehicle and a compressor.it has a shutoff switch in the back.turn it off and see if the dead battery problem goes away.i would wire it up so it only runs when the ignition is on.a further note,when getting oil changes tell them about it,some forget to disable it and the compressor can get damaged

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 . http://www.troubleshooters.com/dont_disconnect_battery.htm How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy

Battery keeps running down causing all panel instruments to go crazy


first have a load test done on the battery to check for cell failure. Next have the alternator and regulator checked by an accredited auto electrician. Lastly check the electrical module for failure..

My truck is charged while it is running after i had jumped it off and the alternator seems to be charging it while my truck is on because the gauge is normal but the battery dies overnight.


you may have a parasitic load (something on when truck is off) have the battery checked first to make sure its ok. then have someone check for a load when the truck is off. Aftermarket stereo's amps and a sticking relay can cause parasitic load or draw problems. a poorly functioning alternator can be not charging the battery fully as well.

10 amp draw draining battery overnight on 99 tahoe


I have done this before, put about a 10 amp charger on the battery. Pull the courtesy light fuse first. Look at the battery charger, it is probably charging several amps, pull one fuse at a time. When the charging amps drops down you found the fuse the controls the problem. I had a car several years ago that someone pulled the seat belt all the way out, somehow it was pulling a load and draining the battery overnight.

Battery is losing power overnight. fitted new


Here's my take on this.. if it were an un-modified Ford I would first suspect the Diode Module inside the Alternator is leaking power to ground. This can be easily tested by disconnecting the Alternator to see if the problem persists. A load test is best here too, read on.

Alternatively (no pun indended) the Alternator can be bench tested for this specific problem.

Since this vehicle was electricaly modified.. I would imagine the additional circuitry would be fused.. this would aide in testing. You would have to connect a load meter between the battery and the vehicle, disabling systems one by one (pulling fuses) while watching the draw.

You didn't mention it.. I assume you disconnect a battery cable while your away to preserve your good battery while your dealing with this problem.. and that's working for you as a work-around till you get this fixed.

Battery & alternator test good. Battery runs


from the sounds of it ?? could be the altenator ,a diode is allowing the current to run to earth,disconnect battery when not using the vehicle ,if it starts ok after having the battery disconnected then make sure a boot (trunk) light isnt staying or something stupid like the abs pump or suspension leveling`pump if fitted .But the altenator is the most common problem

2000 LINCOLN LS, WELL WHEN THEY DID THE TEST THE CODE WAS B1342 ABS MODULE, THEN IT WAS TEST DROVE & EVRYTHING WAS OK BUT WHEN I DROVE IT ALL THOSE LIGHTS CAME BACK ON & ARE STILL ON, ....REPLACE...


MAKE SURE YOUR CAR BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR IS IN GOOD OPERATION.HAVE THEM TESTED.I HAVE SEEN A CAR WITH ABS AND AMPS LIGHTS ON.THE ALTERNATOR WAS NOT PUTTING OUT ENOUGH VOLTS TO RUN THE ABS BRAKE SYSTEM. IF ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY IS GOOD.I WOULD REPLACE THE ABS RELAY FIRST.ITS GOES BAD CAUSE THE ABS BRAKES NOT TO WORK.IF ABS RELAY IS GOOD.THEN IT HAS TO BE ABS MODULE GOING BAD.IT HAS TO BE REPLACED.

I have changed my battery 3 times and it keeps going dead


Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.

Electrical Problem with 1999 Subaru Legacy


hi there, your alternator is not putting out enough, subbies should put out about 14.4v and just after starting should put out 40-60amps. charge the batt that is in it now with a small (3.5-6amp) charger overnight then start the car and LOAD TEST the batt and alternator at a battery shop. ask them to put a carbon pile load tester on your system. im pretty sure they're gonna tell you its the alternator. many thanks, hope this helps!
