Look online but i have found a few were the clock was the issue. Pull the fuse to check his. if not the clock, look at all the grounds should be 3, or pull off neg cable use a test light clip to battery touch the cable & if it light there is a draw. You can pull each fuse 1 at a time to also help find the issue.

Unit has a draw somewhere that needs to be addressed. I have found the auto starts sometimes can cause this. But if the draw is through the negative side it could be tough. You should take it to the dealer and have them perform a draw test on the entire vehicle.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 jeep Liberty.If i leave #23 fuse in

Just for thought try removing the light bulb under the hood, the socket my have gone bad and keeping the light on.
Good luck and keep me posted. Also not sure if your Liberty has one of the sun visor with a light switch on it, I found the one on my jimmy was always on thank's to my G/F putting things between the visor and ceiling.

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee battery will drain

Ditto here on a 2005 jeep. We bought it new and found the battery dead on a few mornings the first year. Nothing left on. Did the new alternator thing about 2 yrs. ago and a few batteries along the way. This is what we noticed..... If you leave a CD in the CD player, that is the prime little devil that sucks out the juice. Now, we never turn off the car while a CD is in the dash. Now, maybe not necessary every time, but always overnight and now by habit, all the time, we make sure there is no CD inserted when the car is off. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Something keeps DRAINING the battery?

If you disconnect the negative battery cable and connect a 12V test light between the battery negative post and the negative battery cable terminal the light will burn if there's a draw. Make sure all electrical consumers are off and all doors closed when doing this draw test. If the light is on start pulling 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, when it goes out that's the circuit that has the draw. Trace it from there.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?


put kill where? at battery post, and is just a switch,
not those dynamic battery drop relays?
if the battery goes dead with the neg. lug pulled the battery is bad.
end of life , battery.
the lug pull never lies.... ever.
if stays ok now this is called battery phantom drain.
(or aka. dark currents)

finding cause takes an ammeter. any,
here is all ways to find a drain.

Hello Jr, The fact that the battery goes dead even with a kill switch would lead me to think the new battery is defective.

Jeep wont charge


wow no year stated, nor car. a willis jeep> 1945?
in 1945 it has no Alternator !
General answer , for all cars:
dead parked, or dead moving ?
no person can help lacking that critical fact,
sounds to me like, impossible question !
if it goes dead moving the alternator /gen system is failing.
if the battery goes dead parked, that means you have phantom drain.

we can find out which it is , with a $10 DMM meter at walmart
$20 is a better buy.

so if it drains over night check for lamps stuck on.(aka. dark current)
if drain driving, then.
check for 13.3 to 15vdc, running, engine.
if low, the alternator system (charge) is failing
at no time did i say any part was bad or to buy them. (i never do until i do tests)
drains here.
http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html
works on all cars.

moving dead.:
there are other rare causes..
like the engine will not idle at 800 rpm or more.
see this, the alternator goes off line below that much.
and can drain a battery fast deep in the city at infinite red lights
and traffic jams.
that is why getting a car with hands on service by a real ASE
tech, works best , he /she sees all this in 5 min flat.
saving all this grief.
like , oh crud, it idles a 500! (that be it)
or charge lamp is on?

the old jeeps love to kill batteries, with old DC generators. (ask)
oh my, the OBD2 scan tool says my ALternator is off line.
or other DTC errors, about power lost to many places.
use a scan tool if car is newer.


this car?

My 1999 mercedes benz S420 has been sitting in my driveway for 6 months. The battery is now dead. Will i be able to jump it?? or do i need a new battery. Could not starting the car for 150 days drain...


Yes, you will be able to jump it. Yes, you will need a new battery. Yes, the battery will drain completely - actually, if you have at least an alarm system active , it will completely drain in less than 2 months.

Dead battery


I have a recall notice for your Jeep. It states that the radio is not powering down correctly and that the radio should be replaced by the dealership.

Email me at bomber6509@yahoo.com because it is too big to post here.
