Question about 2005 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Something is killing my battery.

I bought a new battery last week and today 5 days later it was almost completely drained. I had to get a jump start. It appears as though something is still powered on even after I turn off the engine. Sometimes it sounds like my the CD is changing even as I i open the truck door without putting the key into the ignition.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

You have the battery and the alternator and the alternator belt and if they are working fine there must be something that is draining the battery. You need an auto electrician to check what the drain is. In such cases,on various vehicles, the BCM, body control module, proves to have something to do with it.

2004 chev silveroda 4x4 z71 5.3 motor,has abattery drainage dead in a week and half


Probably the battery, If you don't start it any time within the week and a half. Computers in the truck stay on all the time. A new battery will drain in about 30 days. because of the computers. A shorted dome light will kill a old battery in about 2 days. Starters and alternators will kill them over night. Start it every 2 or 3 days for 5 minutes, you shouldn't have a problem.

I have a 2000 Denali that just turned over 200,000 and has never given me any problem until 2 weeks ago. I went to start it and it turned over and acted like it wasn't getting any fuel but wouldn't start...


Well, if you jumped the battery and it started, maybe you need a new battery. Get that checked out first. Also, when was the air filter replaced? I would probably take to an indy shop if it wasn't the battery or air filter because it could be a bunch of things: starter, fuel pump, fuel filter or fuel injectors.

There is a switch above the break peddle that is adjustable for the break lights. This is running your battery down that is why the gauges are jumping. Change the battery.. If it is 5 years old draining it dead will kill the cells. Hope this helps.

My 92 bmw 735i's battery died last week and it has already been replaced with a new one. It started up fine since then. Today, it wouldn't start at all without a jumpstart. I dared to drive out of my drive...


Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge, or something is draining the battery. You can check this by making sure everything in the car is turned off, disconnect the positive terminal of the battery, connect a test light to the battery terminal and the other end to the battery cable, if the test light lights up, something is drawing on the battery. You can pull one fuse at a time to try to determine what curcuit the problem is in. Most parts stores will test your battery, takes a couple hours.

One year old battery kept dying. It tested bad and


There is some things to check....

(1) Is your alternator charging? take your vehicle to Advanced Autos, Napa or someone like that and have them test your alternator.
(2) Is there something in the vehicle causing excessive drain on the battery when the motor is not running... like is the interior light may be on or something to that affect.
(3) Are you doing enough driving to recharge your battery? short stops and starts is not good for a battery as you may rob more energy from the battery then you are putting back in.
Sounds like something is draining your battery, something must be left on in the vehicle, Advanced Autos or Napa should be able to tell if something is draining your battery when the vehicle is off.
