SOURCE: Can a dead electronic key cause the car battery to

Then, yes, I would say a remote starter key with a questionable battery could cause the battery to drain. Could be that all the necessary components are not being de-energized.

I would add that it's a long shot, but it's worth a try.

In my 1986 Fire bird the alternator and battery both test good in the part store alternator charged at 94 amps, but when put in the car together the battery is not charging it is draining. We have replaced...


You need to find out what is causing the drain-have you recently installed an amp?

A way to find the drain is to hook up a digital voltage meter to the battery and remove fuses, one by one, until you pull one that STOPS the lowering readings-if it is draining a good battery in 1/2 an hour, it has to be something pretty significant and should be relatively easy to find this way.

Also, be wary of a 'good' battery-did they load test it? How old is it? You can buy a tester that checks specific gravity of the sulfuric acid in each cell, and it would show a weak cell that might be the very reason you are having these problems.

I have a slow drain on my car battery. I puller


Use a 12volt test light between the positive battery post and the positive cable with the positive cable disconnected from the battery.
Keep key off.
You will see the test light "light" with any drain.

Any drain showing a dim test light is..... OK
Any drain showing a bright light is.....BAD

Disconnect items (fuses) one at a time and watch the light.
Keep the doors closed....the inside dome light is a drain with the door open!
After fuses are checked....disconnect the alt if needed and watch the light.
Keep going until you get rid of the bright light.

2000 jetta has multiple alternator and battery failures


In my case, the instrument cluster was bad, causing the MFI display and radio to go haywire and putting a contstant drain on the battery. $760 to have the VW shop replace it. No problems related to the battery or alternator have occurred since.

Good luck.
