Question about 1999 Lincoln Navigator
2000 Lincoln Navigator goes dead after sitting in driveway (not being driven or started/used for more than 4 days). something seems to be draining on the battery. We have had every part in the car replaced pretty much, and cost us tons of $ trying to find the root of the problem, such as:
-Various fuses, etc.
-They have checked radio, etc. to see if draining on battery
3+ dealers could not solve the issue. Still in unknown what is causing the issue.
Any advice would be helpful!
Hellokrissypoo4...Your navigator has what is known as a parasitic battery drain...meaning, something in the vehicles system is not turning off...here is the way i test for this, you will need a digitial multimeter to perform this test...when doing this test make sure that the dome light, under hood light, trunk light, etc. are OFF.

Hate to say it but best way to test that by sounds of it, is to make a note of all fuses, if not sure where they all belong after, and pull them all. Then take a 12 volt DC test light, remove battery + cable, and hook test light between battery cable end & + battery post. test light should be off. Start putting fuses back one at a time. If light comes on faint, it's a small draw (such as radio etc.) if it comes on bright, it's a good size draw. I usually take those ones back out & note it,(where it goes & what circuit it's for) Then I proceed with the rest etc. Now you have big draw narrowed down to certain circuits. Dealer or good repair shop should be able to do same without taking fuses all out by using a clamp on amp meter & removing fuses one at a time to narrow it down then isolate it. I know the test light method sounds tedious, but I've had to do it on Motorhomes that have 2 or 3 fuse panels and no one else could find the draw. I did.

Make sure all your doors are closed. Our navigator has a fault somewhere and indicates one of the doors is open. its not noticeable usually during the day, but you could put your hand on the side light panels located at the bottom of the door. Usually, they will be hot to the touch. I read on another post that there may be corrosion on the wiring under the driver seat that may cause doors to appear ajar to the the vehicles electrical system.
