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.

Wiring diagram


Sounds like a battery connection,try this ,turn the headlights on,have someone watch or whatever,try to start it,if the lights go out,it's a poor connection(probably at the battery) if they stay on,it's a starter issue.

unless it is an add on after the car was made it quite possibly is for the day time running lights. because the lights stay on i would suspect it is a relay for the headlights located in the fuse panel near the battery. feel the tops of them if you don't have a diagram... the one that is very hot is the one. there is a chance that the daytime running lights module has failed tho they usually do not come on at all when that happens

Parking lights stay on


So they stay on until your battery goes dead? If it's just the parking lights. I would probably start by checking at the back of the headlight switch to see if it's switching the parking light output off. There is also a Parking LP relay in the underhood fuse block. You might want to swap another like relay in for it and see if it fixes it. There are probably more relays in that block just like it that you can use to try.

Actually starting at the relay would be easiest. The park lamp on switch signal at your headlight switch should be the gray/black wire in pin 2 of the connector

Check the bulb under the engine hood. Sometimes the tilt switch goes band and the light stay's on from time to time since it's exposed to the out side. Hope that would help you.
