It is either two things, 1st you might have a parasitic drain in the vehicle. Check for Lights left on such as a glove box or cig. lighter, aftermarket cd player or amplifier. or 2nd you might have a bad alternator, and it does not charge the battery

Repair the passenger door such that the warning light goes out. Either adjust the switch outward or adjust the door latch inward. If you cannot get the light go o out that way, you can disable the switch by disconnecting tbe cable, taping the connector, and tucking the wire back into tbe body.

The following is for the six cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps or 720 cold cranking amps.

1994 saturn keeps killing the battery with car


YOU CAN TAKE THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF BATTERY OFF AND STICK A TEST LIGHT BETWEEN THE TERMINAL AND THE BATTERY, IF TEST LIGHT ILLUMINATES YOU HAVE A DRAW SOMEWHERE. ONE AT A TIME START REMOVING FUSES TO SEE IF TEST LIGHT TURNS OFF. WHEN TEST LIGHT TURNS OFF, DETERMINE WHAT IS CONTROLLED BY THAT FUSE AND FIX YOUR PROBLEM

1998 Camry, turn ignition to On kills electical system


This is a Direct Fault Caused by the Alarm System Starter Kill. Do you have an Alarm Override Switch???? You may need the Dealership to Reset the Alarm if not.

When I turn the key off, it is like disconnecting the battery.


Does the car have a battery kill switch installed with its alarm system? It sounds as though when you cut off the key it engages the kill switch which removes power from the vehicle when the key is removed and the alarm is tripped.
