Question about 2003 Honda Odyssey

Battery is drained every morning

Has anyone had this problem? I am on my third battery in a month. Every morning the van is completely dead. Nothing is left on and the battery cables are secure. I have also had the alternator checked and it came out ok. Any suggestions??

Drains are a direct short, either within the battery whereby the cells fail to maintain continuity, or there is a connection short outside of the battery, Check the ground connection and look also for corrosion at the terminals. Trace the wires for any possible insulation damage. Even a small pin hole can short a line, so test with your meters and observation.

SOURCE: Total black Out...

Try to loosen the battery terminals and spin a little bit to clean them, Did you see a spark when you did that? if not go to a shop with the battery and have it checked for voltage. The car should be fine just make sure the terminals are clean and tight sounds like the battery is bad.

SOURCE: 1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?

if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

01 chevy express van security light flashing and van won't start. Van sat for a while battery was completely dead charged it and put a new battery in it and now it won't start. Just cranks over


Do a reset. Ten minutes on, 30 seconds off. Try to start. If it doesn't, do a relearn. Which is 3 times the reset , don't try to start until the third time. Have a charger handy, don't let the battery get low.

What Systems draw power when the car is off?


Have to do a Parasitic Current Drain Test, to find
the circuit with the fault,then component test items
in that circuit

You have a module,relay or other item, not timing out
or going to sleep

You can have failed switches in the doors,failed alternator
diodes,many things that can cause that

Even the Evap System, which on some cars, run tests while
your sleeping, can be at fault

Check for OBD Codes in all Modules, with professional scan tool,
then do the drain test, leaving the doors closed

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.
