Something's draining battery I go out to my car at lunch and only Bluetooth or radio is on and battery is dead in 5 mins.battery checked and it's good car has no battery issues except that


So you had the battery tested? Possibly the alternator or charging system is not up to par? Before you assume there is a drain, first make sure both battery and charging system are working good.

Best to buy a cheap voltmeter (or multifunction meter) to do any testing. Put a voltmeter on the battery, with key off, volt reading should be at least 12.4 volts-any less, like below 12 volts, then battery is not taking full charge OR the charging system is at fault. Now start the car and put voltmeter on the battery again: the reading should be at least 13.5 volts- somewhere between 13.5 and 14.5 volts. If it is, then charging system is good. If both battery and charging system check out, then you start looking for an unintended drain. YouTube has lots of videos on how to find an unintended drain.

Battery is drain


drained, past tense?
if you didnt use a voltmeter how would you even know its drained.
or was that just a guess?
the battery is charged if the voltage (rested) is 12.6vdc.
if not charge it.
if it keeps discharging, parked, that is called a phantom drain.
if it only discharges driving ,that is a bad charge SYSTem in car.
are the battery cable lugs clean (a standard service point)?

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 a2002 trailblazer and the battery drains after sitting for 3-4 hours. The battery will charge right up, but if left for a period of time, the battery goes dead.


In most newer vehicles there is a built-in battery drain caused by features that have a "memory" such as your radio.
Especially in cold weather, that drain is too much for a marginal battery to deal with.
If you are charging the battery by running the engine, that won't help. The battery needs to be fully charged with a battery charger. Load test the battery after charging. If it fails or comes up as marginal, replace it. otherwise, you will need to begin testing for an excessive power drain.

Battery is being drained but when charged battery passes load test. gage shows charging when started for about 2 minutes then the gage drops to 8 volts and the check gages light comes on.


I would think this should lead you to think that your problem is in the components which charge the battery, and not the battery itself. Voltage should remain over 12 after it is running or the battery is not being charged. If it is not being charged, it is being drained.

battery needs a deep charge from a battery charger.if you drain battery to low the alternator cannot supply enough charge to bring battery up to full charge.
