Did you pull the fuses in the underhood power distribution box? if you already did then you need to look at positive battery terminal and see if anything is connected directly to it, like maybe a wire that runs to radio so it doesn't lose its memory when you shut the car off. hope that helps

Something is drawing down the battery on my 2005 Odyssey and the draw is coming from the under the hood fuse #15 40 amp. What does that Fuse control. When fuse is pulled engine will not start.

Fuse 15 supplies power to a whole bunch of things so it is little wonder that your Odyssey won't start with it removed. You may have to remove other fuses one at a time to find what is causing the current drain.

Parasitic drain 2005 avalanche

remove the positive cable from your battery then connect a test light in between the cable and the terminal of the battery. at this point it will be lit up. if you have an under hood light the bulb will need to be removed as well as the radio fuse and unplug any thing from the cigar lighter. remove the dome light fuse. if the test light is still lit up then you have a parasitic drain. the first thing i would do is remove the large red wire from the back of the alternator as a shorted field is the most common form of parasitic draw, if the test light is still on and are sure that everything is off and unplugged then start removing fuses one by one while checking if the test light is still on. once the test light goes off then you have found the circuit that is causing the draw. repair will depend on the circuit

Car seems to be charging ok but some thing

Check for consumers staying on such as interior lights , radio etc.. To check for current draw, you need an AMP meter. remove the negative battery terminal. Connect one amp meter lead to the battery negative terminal and the other to the earth cable. Hold the cable against the battery negative cable, close all doors and press bonnet switch to closed position. Activate the alarm and wait for it to arm. Once it has armed itself, separate the earth cable from the battery terminal keeping the amp meter connected. read the current draw. Should be less then 100 milli amps. Usually +- 40ma. To check which circuit has current draw remove one fuse at a time and check if current draw drops. A drop in current draw will indicate that the problem is on that fuses circuit. Also check alternator charge rate. To check this hold a volt meter across the battery terminals. with engine off, should get battery voltage. Start the vehicle, battery voltage should rise to 13 -14v and maintain this voltage with the headlights on. The battery itself could be faulty, you would need to do a load test on the battery. Load tester needed to do this.

02 ford focus battery dies over night having problems checking for a draw in the system any help

Disconnect the negative battery cable and put a test light between the cable end and the neg post. If there is a draw, the light will light. Remember the doors need to be closed and the underhood light disconnected (these are draws as well). If the light is lit there is a draw. Removing fuses until the light goes out can pinpoint the circuit. Finding the actual short can tougher.

The battery goes dead in a day or two. Have checked resistance 0.75 ohm with all fuses removed same with hot wire removed on alternator did not remove main fuse in engine compartment has a new battery...

Remove either of the battery cables from the battery and put an ammeter between the cable end and post. start pulling fuses till the draw disappears or gets substantially lower. which ever fuse you pulled serves the circuit that has the problem. I'm certain you had the battery load tested ???

Can I fix a hidden draw on my battery by removing a fuse?

You can leave the fuse out. It will not draw power because it doesn't have the fuse to complete the circuit.

Yes you're right if you remove the fuse and it doesn't start it means the fuse is good. If you have a test light you could test all the fuses as well. It is a bit complicated as electrical faults are difficult to diagnose by distance but another thing you could check is if the battery current draw is excessive( if an appliance/short circuit is drawing power from the battery. Make sure you have your ignition key removed and in your hands, close all doors and remove the negative terminal on the battery. Now try to touch it again on the battery post, there should be no spark happening if there is no current draw. If it's the case then I think you should see a sparky(electrician) to check the electrical system of your car.
