There would have to be something that is shorting out, causing a drain on the battery. Either that or check the cells and make sure there is water in them. The way you do that is pop the tops off with a screw driver ( you will be able to tell which part pops off ) and look down into the battery and top it off if needed. Be careful TRY NOT TO TOUCH THE CAPS to anything really but especially clothes. Hope it helps!

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.

Drains battery while sitting


Here is how to detect a drain in system! Use a test light, Hook up test light to the negative terminal on battery. ( unhook terminal first.) connect opposite end of test light to negative on battery. If a drain, light will be on. Start pulling fuses from fuse box. when the test light goes out, that is the problem curcuit. let sit 3to5 minutes before pulling fuses. Good-Day!

MR 2000 toyota would not start after sitting all winter.


the battery can be disconnected if you let it sit for more than a week. most common drain that i encounter is in the audio system. disconnect the negative battery cable and put a test light (wired light bulb) between battery post and cable end. if the light is on or even dim, start pulling fuses one at a time. if the light stays on, replace the fuse and move on. if the light goes out then you have found which circuit the draw is in.

05 Cadillac SRX battery draining down after a couple days of sitting.


Dealer should have been able to figure this one out!

Best bet to trouble shoot is next time it is going to sit for a couple of days disconnect the battery. After the couple of days pass hook up the battery and if it's dead then the battery isn't holding a charge, if not then something in the vehicle is draining the battery.

If you live in a colder climate weak batteries tend to be more of a problem as temps get colder.

If the battery is more then 3 years old it is a prime suspect.

Hope this helps!

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.
