The battery of my car is going flat sometimes over night. I do not know what is draining the battery. It is a C-Class. Please advice if you require further information.


It is possible that it can't hold a charge.

Try disconnecting the negative battery terminal as soon as you are done with the car for the day. In the morning re-connect it and see if you are still having problems. If it still won't start then you probably need a new battery. You can take the batter into your local auto parts store and they can test it for you to make sure.

Battery light staying on


if the light stays on it could be a parisitic lose this is something that is drawing power from the batter but not fast anuff to kill it over night it may take up to three months but every time you drive it the altenater brings the power in batter back up so it will not die

No, it may have an engine block heater, if it does it should be in the front around the bumper or grill area.

My expedition keeps dying on me the battery dies once i get it started though it works fine its when i leave it parked over night there is a new alternator on it cause the old one went out and the battery...


I'd run it by Autozone if this was the batter that was in it when the alatnator went out it may have cause the batter to get a bad cell, they will check it for free, Most batters have a 3 to 5 yr. warrenty. DONT tell thim your alatnitor went out if the battery showes bad this will void the warrenty just simpley say my batter has a bad cell....of corse the place you bought the batter will test it as well befor they give you or pro-rate your old battery good luck

Brand new battery put in the car in the evening, by morning the battery was dead. Is there something that is causing the drain on the batter while the car is off?


If your engine is a diesel then it may be the relay for the glow plugs which is shot

As long as the dashboard lights are off when you leave the motor at night there should be no drain effect if there is then you have a short on the loom or a coil

Only way to check it is to hook an meter into the circuit and see how much current is being drawn when the engine is shut off

You then need to unhook items like the starter motor and window motors even the alarm in a one at a time order until you see that drain stop.
