Those clicking things sound like relays, not fuses. Fuses don't click. Charge battery, see what's not working, and put the relays back in. Do they click now?

SOURCE: 1994 Cadillac Seville is draining the battery.

Check the cells on the battery, if they are dry or not full of water then they can go bad. That would incorporate the battery to keep dying. When you start the car it feeds off the alternator, and then starts to die.
Check your charging system, test the battery.

SOURCE: I have a current drain which kills my battery if

all vehicles since the 80s have a continuous drain, it keeps the ecm , radio keyless etc, anything that requires memory, although one week is a little short, i would wonder if the battery is not getting a full charge?? like only used on short trips. disconnect the neg terminal and bridge it with a test light, it should glow bright for a few seconds then dim, that is normal , if it stays bright pull fuses one at a time , you should find the circuit that is staying closed

Why does the battery run down if I don't drive the car in 3 days on 1989 jag xj6


Well, something is draining the battery. Recharge the battery, and have it load tested. If that tests okay, check for voltage draws while the car is off. Pull all fuses, test again. Alternator diodes are a common culprit and would not stop the draw with all fuses pulled. Keep going until you identify the offending system.

How do you recode the radio in my 2005 vw beetle


You can run your radio a number of days and will not run the battery way down. I had a car that did that and each night when I shut the car off I disconnected one fuse and did that till the battery did not run down. It took several times and I would write down the fuse I pulled. I found something was malfunctioning in my air conditioning switch area. My mechanic replaced something and is ok now. Not saying that is your problem.

Vw beetle battery is good but something is draining it. sos help


The standard procedure is to disconnect the negative cable and use a test light or meter to measure voltage.
A test light between the battery post and ground will light up until the drain is knocked out.
You disconnect each fuse and cable until you find the drain.

Nissan Quest 1999 Van - rear wiper seems to be running even if there is no key in the ignition and drains the battery, pulled RR Wiper fuse 10 Amp and it did not help. When the key was inserted into rear...


If you pulled the correct fuse for the rear wiper (Under the Dash) (or under the hood?) sometimes there are 2 fuses. But if you pulled the correct fuse and you still have power going to the wiper, I would pull the fuse on either side of the wiper fuse socket. With the wiper fuse socket empty, pull the fuse on the left or right one at a time, check for power at the wiper motor each time a fuse is pulled. When you find the power source then you'll need to trace your wiring where the wipers and say for example the dome light meet. I can almost bet the wires have rubbed or something like that and are feeding power to each other. Maybe a melted wire or like what I found on my sons car was that the back side of the fuse block had melted from him running all those high power stereos. He melted the block and the connection melted together. Hope this helps.

On my 94 jeep im having an electrical problem, something is killing my battery and i checked the alternator and my starter and i can not find the solution something is killing my battery rapidly please...


START THE VEHICLE, PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY. THE VOLTAGE SHOULD READ 13.90 TO 14.80. IF THAT IS OK, THERE MAY BE A BATTERY DRAIN. TURN OFF EVERY SWITCH IN THE CAR.CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL THE COURTESY LIGHTS ARE GOING OUT. & THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT LIGHT. RAISE THE HOOD. DISABLE ANY UNDER HOOD LIGHTS. DISCONNECT THE NEG. CABLE FROM THE BATTERY. PUT A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, ONE END ON THE NEG BATTERY POST & THE OTHER END ON A GOOD GROUND { METAL }. IF THE LIGHT COMES ON THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. NO LIGHT , NO DRAIN. IF IT'S ON, ONE AT A TIME PULL THE FUSES OUT OF THE POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX. IF THE LIGHT STAYS LIT, PUT THE FUSE BACK. DO THIS WITH ALL THE FUSES BIG & SMALL. IF THE LIGHT STAYS LIT, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. THEY CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY WHILE RUNNING, & DRAIN WHEN STOPPED.
