Check for interior lights that may be on. One that is always missed is the lights in the sun visors.

New battery keeps draining. Don't know what is going on. It's a 2001 ford explorer sport 4.0 l.


Starter and alternator are the most likely culprits(one day). Interior lights and radio will also cause this. But usually takes a couple days to drain the battery.

Battery wont stay charged


If the alternator is good and the battery is new, then something is draining the battery while it's parked. In the old days people left their headlights, radio or something on and this drained the battery. Now a days this is not as big a problem with 5 minute timers that turn off lights if you forget. I would take it back to whomever did the alternator work for an answer. How old is the battery? You can take it to see if it can't hold a charge any longer. In my experience, most batteries don't seem to hold a charge after about two years. Did anyone do some custom work in your car that requires electricity? It could be this extra stuff is draining the battery.

Toyota tacoma 2003 ac control assembly kills battery


You diagnosis is wrong in my opinion, that module will not drain a good battery, first have the battery load tested (Autozone and others do the test for free), if it is good then look for some kind of light left on or staying on, suspects are visor vanity lights and glove box and console lights.
