There is an electrical drain on the battery that I cannot locate. A dash light is on but I don't know what it indicates because I do not have a manual.

It could be the security system if you have one. Otherwise you can pull the dash and remove the bulb.

The car trunk symbol on my dash keeps coming on to tell me my trunk is open,but my trunk is shut tight, also, something drained the battery, so I don't know if it's electrical or just a fuse or someth


The cheap switch that controls the trunk is not working properly and the light is staying on (to drain the battery and trigger the warning) fix the switch. All you have to do is find the switch. Probably is not correctly positioned.

Electrical problem


I doubt the problem is a fuse altho you could check them to make sure.
The dash lights and tail lights are on two different circuits controlled by the headlight switch. Each circuit would need to be tested.

Hi, I have Mercedes C180, I have changed both Sam units. Now it's battery keep draining out. Once it's starts its run fine. Can some one help me please.


Don't you have some warning lights on your dash? MB cars are fly-by-wire that tend to depend so much on battery electricity when shut off. Use a high amps battery or battery recommended matching your car model. Check on some instruments that can be a parasitic drain to your car like, car alarm, sticking relays on auxiliary fans, radios. Worse you have a short somewhere or a wiring harness issue, but it should be giving you a warning on the dash.

This means there is a drain on your circuit as soon as the battery is connected. For this problem to be sorted out you need to check the drain current with a series ammeter/multimeter to the battery on the positive terminal. Disconnection of the fuse one by one will confirm the drain circuit when the meter comes to zero value which is no drain current.A trace on the removed circuit will confirm if the radio or any accessories electronic component unit including any remote unit is faulty.

My 92 volvo 240 has been sitting outside all summer. i have started it a few times and went to start it today. it won't do anything. what could be the problem and a solution?


"It won't do anything" means that there are no dash lights, no buzzers, nothing?
Any car has very slight electrical drains when it is shut off. For one thing, the clock is running, but there are a number of other tiny loads as well. With a good battery, you should be able to park a car for six months to a year and still start it.
However, if you start the car several times without running it long enough to recharge the battery, or if the drain is larger than it should be due to electrical problems or aftermarket accessories, you can get a failure to start.
Unfortunately, maintanence-free batteries don't tolerate being run completely dead very well, and many owners have unhappily found that draining an older battery once or twice was the last straw that ended their battery's life.
I suggest that you borrow a charger or a set of jumper cables to start the car, and drive it 30 minutes or so to fully charge the battery. If you have more problems, get the battery load tested at a shop that sells batteries to see if it is still OK.

Won't hold a charge. Have had Alternator and Battery tested. I know I need a fuel pump. Is the fuel pump electric and is it in the gas tank? Lights are very dim. I charge the battery everynight. ...


If the lights are dim when the car is running, it is not charging well. Who tested the alternator? Is the alternator well grounded to the engine? I think those older alternators required a ground strap around the alternator mounting.
Though I suspect the problem is not a drain, the way to find the drain on this car is to disconnect one battery cable and put a voltmeter between the cable and the battery terminal. If it is draining, you will see 12.6 volts on the meter. If you see only 3 or 4 volts, it is not draining.
(note that this technique does not work on newer cars with computers, and some dash clocks can confound this test)
Assuming that you see full battery voltage, start pulling fuses until the voltage showing on the meter drops. When that happens, you are on the right track. At least you will know what fuse to pull at night to keep it from draining.

Battery drain on 04 Sedona


It may be expensive to have someone fix. Electrical gremlins can be a pain to find. If you could locate the issue then it might not cost as much to get fixed. Start by looking at all the wiring you can for any rubbing or bare wires. Something is grounding and draining the battery. I've seen a wiring harness rub a bracket on the back of an engine until it shorted, causing all sorts of issues on a civic.
