2003 Lincoln LS. When I shut the car off the brake lights won't shut off. Pulled the fuses just so the battery wouldn't get drained but that didn't work! Battery died and had to charge it. Thx


brake lights staying on
faulty brake light pedal switch

flat battery with fuses pulled
comes from a constant 12 volt parasitic drain from battery terminals
usually ignition alternator or starter /solenoid

1988 Cadillac Deville. ELC light stays on in dash and drains battery


The light is on because the system fuse was removed, this causes the control module to see a fault. either fix the system or pull the dash and remove the warning bulb.

With all fuses in it drains the battery pull the fuse out the battery stays charge but lights don't work or radio


You'll need to trace that circuit to find out where the short to ground or power drain is. Could be something inside the radio or a light switch.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.

When i turn off the engine the see you goodbye stays on and flattens the battery


do you need the see u goodbye notice? if it doesnt effect any running components to your vehicle. the quick fix until you have the money to have somebody chase that wiring issue. pull the fuse. then it cant drain your battery you cut off its electric supply until u can get it looked into. just a quick fix though. you dont want to keep doing things like that lol. im old school so i will run with minimal. the motor runs, im good!! :)

Which one is the fuse for the inside lights? the inside lights stay on the whole time and i need to change it! plus is causing my battery to die


Your inside lights are staying on
If the fuse was blown they would be off
So forget the fuse.
Why would you replace a good fuse with
another good fuse?

It is not causing your battery to die
The problem that causes your light to
stay on is the cause of the battery drain

We can't diagnose or guess over the
internet,you need help from a friend or
repair shop

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.

Radio stays on.


It would be best to pull the radio fuse leaving it out for several minutes then replace it. tis may well fix the problem but if it doesn't you can remove the fuse agin knowing it will not drain the battery over night
