Forget shops.
get a ammeter and find your own drains.
you never said duration of drain, over night, ? or 3 months parked?

SOURCE: trying to find the exact

Open up your bonnet and look at the very back of the engine and you should see a long tube with a colored handle sticking out, also the check engine light can also be the engine oil so on either side of the engine you should see the same thing as the transmission handle. Its best to check both the transmission & engine oil/fluid by pull out each one by one when the engine is off and cold then get a rag and wipe off the oil/fluid on the longs metal sticks and putting them back in & out to see how much oil/fluid they have.
On both sticks they have a add more & max level lines so if the oil/fluid is on the add more line, add more oil/fluid to them to get it on the max line.
Remeber that the transmission oil/fluid goes to the back stick behind the motor and the motor oil/fluid goes to the side one. Good luck.

Electrical battery drain OR "parasitic drain"


Seen this "mystery drain" many times. Check spark at the battery to see how big the drain is. For this simple test, blow away any (explosive) battery charging fumes. Leave one terminal on and gently touch the other to its post in fairly dark surroundings. Then try it again with the wires taken off the alternator. Your spark is now probably much less. Usually bad diodes leaking electricity backwards through the alternator cause this drain. Replace the alternator or the diode pack inside it. Some mechanics recommend actually measuring the drain.... hahaha. OK whatever.

Have installed new batteries. New Alternator. After leaving 04 duramax parked for 3 days electronics are dead. Batteries were fully charged prior to parking the truck.


There is a very good possibility that there is a short in the wiring that is causing the battery to be drained when it is off. There are a few auto parts stores that can do a complete electrical system check and they can test the battery drain when the car is off. These problems are usually caused by a faulty relay which leaves a component on when the vehicle is off. Or there can be a wire shorting. However, finding a short is often like chasing ghosts. I would recommend going to advance auto. The electrical scanner they have there can detect battery draining.

Put in new starter, alternator, & battery but drains it & dies.


It does not take much to drain a battery e.g interior light left on over night etc. OK switch everything off, disconnect the negative lead and fit a multimeter between the battery terminal and detached lead. Set scale range to 1amp. It should read near zero. Methodically remove and reinsert the fuses one at a time noting any changes whilst each fuse is removed. By a process of elimination you will find the fuse that it responsible for draining battery current. This fuse corresponds to the electrical circuit within which there is some fault or short. The starter is unlikely to blame since once the car is running the alternator will more than compensate for any current loss. Just a thought the truck is getting on in years so it could be worth also checking some of the mechanical items that might upset the running if not now certainly in the future: Exhaust GAS Recirculation (EGR) valve and inlet, Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) and Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. All are located fairly close to the throttle body and are really easy to overhaul on a preventative maintenance basis. If you don't know what they are look them up on Youtube

Headlights causing battery drain while driving?


Hi:
Though your car seems fine without using the headlights, you have a charging problem, and need to get a couple things checked out. First make sure your battery connections are clean and tight. Your alternator belt should also be checked to make sure it is serviceable and properly tightened too. Your alternator should be checked under load, and lastly, your battery too. Most auto parts stores, such as auto zone,will check your parts for free,so you should only be spending money on what is broken!

Something electrical is draining battery on 1987 XJ6;


Have you checked the alternator? The alternator may not be charging the battery. With engine running, check the voltage at the battery (it should be ~14V). If it's less than that, your battery won't charge properly. You can take your alternator to auto store to have it load tested also to be sure. Sometime alternator issues don't show up until it gets hot. Defective alternators have also been known to drain the battery after the car has stopped.

Auto electric fault on a citroen xsara picasso. Battery drain.


The battery will be fine, the alternator might be draining even if it is charging OK, usually it is the alternator (if you can disconnect all the wires to it and see if it still drains.Otherwise it is a big drain, so what is doing it will be getting warm. It might be unwise to use an ammeter to check as the draw would need to be over the usual 20 amp max for most meters, get back to me with what you find.
