Battery drain in 3.3L motor


It would appear that steps need to be taken to determine the current draw . it can not unless there is a circuit for it to do so . Disconnect the earth strap from the battery and insert an amp meter in the circuit . IF there is a circuit for the current you will read that current and that will point to what unit is capable of using that current with out serious effect. Low current (up to 3amps ) indicates lights so check boot light still on-glove box light on- interior light on-head light module faulty etc.; Higher draw then look for ECM working when it should be off--sensors operating from shorts __HO2s sensor ABS unit operating. Starter motors I would discount because if the solenoid was operating the starter would be spinning the motor. Check that the audio systems are not operational with out making noise .Units I would be checking would be automatic units that draw through a relay and a check for this would be to watch the amp meter for a change as each power wire to the relay/s was removed and re installed . IF you find a relay that causes a variance I would replace that module and recheck the current draw.

The car battery is losing it's charge when vehicle is not running


You have what is called a parasitic draw on the electrical system , battery . Could be a control module not powering down when it's should . a electrical componet is staying on . , light in glove box , something you can't see . Bad diode in the alternator could cause this . But this just gussing , testing is the way to a fix . Watch thesed videos on testing for a draw on the system . Improved Methods to Find Parasitic Draw Battery Drains Overnight

Battery seemed to be dead so I had the charging system tested and seemed ok replaced the battery. I tried to start it this morning and it's dead again.


if the charging system is good and you replaced the battery and it still goes dead then you have something on the car that is causing a draw on the system that needs to checked out.it could be something that is not turn off even a problem with one of the on board computers not powering down.this is providing the starter is not the problem.sometimes a bad starter will do nothing no noise or clicking sound because it has a bad spot in it or the starter solenoid system has a problem.

My 2003 KiA sedona,acts like the battary wants to die and then suddenly it starts, has been doing this for 3 days.


1st: Battery needs to be checked (no weak or dead cells) then fully charged.
2nd: If battery is good and fully charged, the problem could be excessive amp draw from the starter, a starter draw test would determine if the starter is drawing too much battery power.

My 1978 caprice starts fine when warm. When completely cold it clicks like the battery is dead. Battery is good. when jumped it usually fires up right away.


I would, first, check the battery connections to make sure they are shiny and clean and tight on the battery.

Then, I would check the amperage draw of the starter in the car.
If it's like 75 to 100 while turning rapidly, that's ok. If it doesn't turnover rapidly with that amperage draw, then the starter is probably going bad.

When the car is jumped, it bypasses the battery connections a little bit, assuming the connections are not allowing full cranking amps of the battery to reach the starter.

1988 Chev half ton kills battery. Put in new battery and starts right away. Ran it for about 20min then shut it off. Tried to restart and battery is completely dead. Needs boost to restart.


Have your starting system checked for starter draw.If the starter is drawing to many amps it will draw the battery down very quickly.Also have your charging system load tested to make sure the alternator is charging properly.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Battery is being drained by something, its new


2 things, not enought cold cranking amps, or while you where trying to start the car the brushs inside the starter caused a ark on the armature causing the starter not to be working at 100% option 1 have a drain test done or 2 replace the starter the drain test will show how much amps its taking to spin the starter if its pulling a high amount of amps/votage to spin the start then replace starter
