If your engine is a diesel then it may be the relay for the glow plugs which is shot

As long as the dashboard lights are off when you leave the motor at night there should be no drain effect if there is then you have a short on the loom or a coil

Only way to check it is to hook an meter into the circuit and see how much current is being drawn when the engine is shut off

You then need to unhook items like the starter motor and window motors even the alarm in a one at a time order until you see that drain stop.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?


Hello Jr, The fact that the battery goes dead even with a kill switch would lead me to think the new battery is defective.

My brand new battery is dead every morning. but a I can hear the alternator turn on. THere is a wire coming off the Hot terminal of the battery that is pulling a lot of juice. Im looking for a diagram


Large wire is possible hot wire to altenator. Should have B+ voltage at all times. Need to do an amperage draw test and start eliminating sub systems to determine root cause. Also would like to point out a new battery does not mean defective free. would load test to ensure no dead cells first.

Pro start car starter on a 2006 avalanche,something is draining the battery, next morning vehicle is stone dead. This happens on random days. Installer can't solve the problem.


Have him put in a new one, sounds like this one is defective. A bad starter solenoid will drain your battery when car is shut off.

My audi won't start up so I found out the battery was bad and I just put a brand new battery in it and it ran for 3 days and now its doing the same thing again what else could it be?


check that the alternator is able to charge. if the alternator cannot charge the battery, it will go dead. if the alternator is okay, google ´¨finding parasitic battery drains¨. it may be that something is draining the battery even when the key is off.

My battery is brand new and my alternator is new both in good working condition but somehow overnight my battery drains.Even after a full charge in the morning i would have a dead battery. help me


you are looking in the wrong place. something is draining the battery while the ignition is off. replacing the battery and alternator is never going to fix this. you have to have someone troubleshoot the electrical system and figure out which doodad is killing the battery. usual
suspects are lights which aren't noticed as in the trunk and glove box, the anti-theft and door lock systems, remote start, clocks,etc.

One of those buggers is draining your system, you have to find it and kill it.

My battery keeps draining down at night it's a 99 dodge durango


you have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers

Brand new battery dying quickly on my 1999 jeep cherokee. draw was not bad, but it only lasts about 4-5 days without being driven before it dies out.


Never saw an ammeter that had a "normal" reading on the gauge face...You aren't reading the dash gauge are you? Normal procedure is to place an ammeter between the battery and either lead and read draw that way. Then remove each fuse till the draw diminishes substantially. An alternator can draw a bit but it should not be excessive.
Checking charging volts, the meter should not read below about 12.5V even with all accessories on and should not continue to drop regardless of running time. (accessories off reading should be between 13 and 14V).
Also have battery load tested if you haven't done that already just to make sure it is good (even when new) and make sure something simple like a visor mirror light or glove compartment light isn't on all the time.
