There must be an electrical fault in the car connection that keeps draining power from the battery. Consider a scan.

Batteries have a service life of 2-5 years. It seems like your battery is in need of replacement. Have it tested, or if it is more than 3 years old, just get a new one.

My ford f150 has a new battery and starts fine all day untill it sits all night then its dead


Someone will need to pull the fuses and disconnect the major electrical components until you find the power drain. You use a meter or test light to watch the battery voltage. It could be anything from a stuck relay, to a short in the wiring.

Mitsubishi Diamante 2002 - slow battery drain when not running.


This problem may be a drain or a bad battery or alternator.

The first thing to do before going on trying to find the system that is draining the battery would be to have the battery tested and charging system tested.

A weak battery will seem ok after the car is jumped or will barely start the car and the alternator will charge it even though the alternator is overworking due to weak battery and during the day or when car does not sit long it will seem ok. then when car sits overnight or a few days battery will weaken on its own, making it look like a drain,

so first step is battery test and alternator/charging system test.

I have a 2003 escalade that has a dead battery after 2 days of sitting. Once I jump start it it will be fine as long as I start it everyday, but once it sits the battery will die again. What can I do???


First have the battery tested with a load tester and also (most places will do both for free hoping to sell a battery etc) the charging system tested.

Either battery, charging system are bad or you have a drain of the battery somewhere.

A authorized dealer would be a smart move.

Won't start after been sitting for about a day or two ...


Take it to get the system tested for free at your local parts store, if the system is charging fine it means something is drawing power while you have the truck off. If that is the case you'll have to use a test light while the truck is off and touch it to all the fuse's until one lights the tester up and you can sometimes find the draw that way.
