Wow 3 batteries in 3 months???? undo the positive battery cable & connect a test light in between the + cable & the + battery. the light will go on if there is a draw, start pulling the fuses out one at a time until the light goes out then you know what circuit the problem is on. make sure you take the interior light out as the door being open will cause the test light to go on. This is called a parasidic loss..

You can unhook your positive lead to your battery and hook a test light on your positive lead then to the negative side of your battery and see if it lights up. If it lights up then you have a draw. Start pulling one fuse at a time until it kills the test light. When it kills the test light you have narrowed it down to what is drawing the power. Test lights are about 10 to 15 dollars for a cheap one. It will work though.

    Oh leave your key-switch off when you run the tests. And test-light should be connected inline.

Battery keeps dieing even after changing it twice.jump starts no problem.airbag light stays on aswell.

1st thing to check is where the ground battery wire attaches to the frame of the car - sometimes they get loose and don't make a good connection anymore (if so, just tighten it). You could also look for obvious problems with both battery wires (insulation worn off etc).

On my Civic, the airbag light will go on after the battery is taken out (or dies), and it has to be reset manually. It's easy to do, but at a dealer they'll charge $50-$100 for it. I have no idea if a Ford Fusion is the same way though, so you could check some car forums or just shell out at a dealer where you can be sure they'll fix it.

My battery went dead on my ford fusion 2008 now my radio doesn't work

As with many newr cars, Your radio probably had a security code which is required to reset it after the radio is removed or power was disconnected from it. You probably have the code written somewhere in your new car paperwork. If not, contact your dealer. They can probably guide you through resetting the code.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion with approximately 55K miles, have had one instance where the car would not start - turned key on "Click","Click", "Click" - checked battery, battery was low on water - filled...

Best way is to go to Autozone or Oreillys and get a free scan. They could also do a Starter draw test to see if it is okay.

The scan will tell you what the Code is for the Check light and Autozone or Oreillys can reset your Check light. If the Battery boiled away the water, then it is either overcharging or you have a high draw of current.

There use to be a test of taking off the Battery cable while the engine was running and if the Alternator was good your car would keep running. But with the new Electronics using this method may hurt the delicate Electronics somewhere else in the car.

use an audio patch cable, 3.5mm. You can get it at radioshack. I don't have my fusion yet (getting hybrid!), so I'm not surem but there should be a line-in, input or mp3 mode on the radio somewhere.
