If you remove the fuse, likely you will kill other stuff. Leave bulb out 'till you fix the problem.

I keep losing charge on my battert


Check glove compartment light or trunk light to check for sure open glove compartment feel bulb right away if it's hot then your glove box light is staying on for some reason same goes for trunk and any other lights if none of those are on you may have a parasitic drain

2002 jeep liberty limited battery dies overnight


easy find and fix. if you have 1 tool, an ammeter. (DMM)
this is called (AKA)
dark current.
or phantom drain,
it means, simply, SOMETHING, is not turning OFF.
so in the dark look for glowing lights. look an all places.
glove box, too, compartments... ALL !
if no lamps on, then its something else.
all cars have 2 power feeds.
1: switch power (key switch)
2: hot all the time. (bingo there)
some lights are hot all the time, Head lights, dome.
and the alternator.

here is a page dedicated to finding it 3 different ways !
no meter, with meter or a test light.
all cars work the same (power DC) but parts of it are moved
about to make it challenging.....

http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html

the first trick is to measure the drain.
then pull fuse 1 by one until you find the branch that has a drain.
keep i mind, 1 fuse can run 10 things....

My 03 chevy monte carlo has a po102 code and I know the mass flow sensor connector is bad but will this cause the battery to drain for no reason? I hear a clicking noise coming from the gove compartment...


If you have a light in the glove compartment that might be staying on. I would start pulling fuses one at a time until the clicking stops. Pull a fuse, still clicking, put it back and pull another. Repeat until you find the circuit causing the problem. That will narrow down where you need to look.

Why does my battery keep going dead I have relaced it 3 times a new alternator if the car sits for 2 days or more and is not started and ran the battery is completely dead


BATTERY DRAINS ARE TRICKY. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES, CLOSE GLOVE BOX. MAKE SURE GLOVE BOX LIGHT IS OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. DISABLE THE UNDER HOOD LIGHT. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL COURTESY LIGHTS ARE OUT. DISCONNECT NEG. BATTERY CABLE. USE 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, CONNECT ONE END TO A METAL PIECE ON THE MOTOR FOR GROUND. FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE BATTERY POST. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, THAT MEANS THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. LIGHT NOT ON, NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, FIND THE POWER BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULL OUT ONE FUSE, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT HE FUSE BACK, PULL OUT THE NEXT FUSE. IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK . REPEAT THIS UNTIL THE LIGHT GOES OUT, OR GETS VERY DIM. OUT IS BETTER. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT THAT IS DRAINING THE BATTERY. REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL TO IDENTIFY THE CIRCUIT. IF THE LIGHT NEVER GOES OUT, REMOVE THE WIRES FROM THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT GOES OUT, ALTERNATOR NEEDS REPLACING.

2009 Jeep Liberty battery keeps dying!


Check and verify that your alternator is charging properly, if you hook a multimeter up to your battery you should see a voltage between 13-14 volts on the charging side, if this is the case your alternator is good, next i would check the resting voltage of your battery that should be tested with the car off and it should be between 12-12.5 volts, if all of this checks out i would start looking into the parasitic draw on your battery while your vehical sits overnight, make sure all your courtesy lights are going off, your glove compartment light any under hood lights things like that if any lights like this are remaining on you will have a dead battery day after day because the light or draw on the battery keeps draining it of its charge....

Having battery drain on Toyota MR2 when the car is left standing for 3 days or more. Have disconnected car alarm.


Pull the positive cable off battery. Put a test light between the battery post and the positive cable. If there is a light you know it is draining the battery. Now pull fuses one at a time until the light goes out then you will know where the problem is. To save time make sure you glove compartment light is going off and check you trunk light.

2005 Dodge Caravan with Dead Battery. Replaced and new battery died. Took it in for service. Alternator checked out ok and Drain was within tolerance. Will still die if I let it sit for more than a...


Disconnect battery from vehicle overnight to check for internal battery drain.......just take one of the cables off.
If the battery is still up and starting the vehicle after being disconnected after a day or two......the drain IS in the vehicle and will have to be checked again.
Do it yourself.
Buy a cheap 12 volt test light.
Place it between the cable you removed before.
One end on the battery post and the other on the cable end.
Now....with the key off......
If the light glows brightly....you have TOO MUCH drain.
We want a dim glowing light.
The dim light is just the memory circuits in the electronics and OK.

With the doors closed....take out one fuse at a time until the light glows dim.......the fuse that dims the light is the problem circuit.
If no fuse dims the light...remove relays one at a time.
Remember....some fuses and relays could be in the engine compartment and under the dash.
If no relay dims the light disconnect ALL alternator wires.
Remember....anything that uses power will make the light glow ....keep those doors closed (we do not want interior light drain affecting the test ) and if you have a under hood light check it first by removing the bulb.
We do not want false readings.

Is it common for the battery to die after 2 weeks of not starting up the car it happened a couple of times no lights were left on


Depending on your battery, no it's not common. If your battery is newer, then you probably have a small drain on the battery. The most common ones to look for are: glove box light
trunk light
engine compartment light ( if you have one)
