Have you tried to pull one fuse at a time to see if you can find it that way. From your post I am going to assume that your are using a test light or meter between the battery term and disconected cable. If not try that as you pull the fuses and narrow down the draw. Don't forget to pull the light bulb from under the hood and make sure that the dome light and all other asscessories are turned off.

What can cause a 2008 Buick Lucerne's battery to drain so much?


If you can't see any obvious reason, like lights on, radio, etc. you have some short circuit in electric system. Get PCM (car's computer) scanned to get a diagnosis and pinpoint location of the problem.

Trl blazer,2001, battery dies over night no visable lights


Right on. Connect an ammeter in series with ground wire that goes to the battery - set ammeter for about 2 amps and check for drain. Then one by one pull a fuse until you come across one where the drain goes down. Now you have isolated the area where something is draining your battery. U now check for all the items on that circuit till you find the culprit. Good luck!

You have the battery and the alternator and the alternator belt and if they are working fine there must be something that is draining the battery. You need an auto electrician to check what the drain is. In such cases,on various vehicles, the BCM, body control module, proves to have something to do with it.

Battery draining


A power drain in the truck. You would need to remove the fuses until the drain stops, then check the circuit for that fuse.

Fuse 8 on 1990 allante is drawing down the battery. will completly drain battery in 2 days


Have you checked BCM input parameter BI61? That is the most common cause of the 2-3 day battery drain. Have you tried pulling fuse #8 under the ash tray for the CPS to see if that stops the drain? You can pull one of the plugs off the AC blower control module to isolate that. If you can not hear the blower motor running with the key off, that probably is not an issue.

2003 Trail Blazer Problem? Not sure if the issues are related but happened with-in a week of clicking noise coming from the rear panel (3rd row) on the passanger side when I started it clicked about 2-3...


To start, these may or may not be related. First off, the clicking noise from the rear is one of the actuators in the rear HVAC unit. It is clicking either because the door it controls is stuck or the gear is stripped.
What wire did you cut to stop the clicking? And did you tape it up to prevent shorting? If that wire is contacting something, it will cause the battery to drain.
The cars dies when you turn on the AC because you need to clean the throttle body. When you replaced the battery you reset the computer, it now has to relearn to the dirty throttle body.

I have 2007 H3 if the car is not used for 2 days the battery goes flat I disconnected the Body Module and then left the car for 2days then the battery is okay no run down,is it the BCM or something else. ...


The body module controls many things it could be module or something that module controls, the best way to find the draw is to do what you did with the module, remove fuses from each system until you can pinpoint draw, if you had a battery draw tester you could watch the meter as you dissconnect each fuse until you see the draw go away.

Audi 2005 A6 4.2 Flooded cabin,Navigation not working....help!


Wow I thought they would have fixed this on the newer body style. My old 2000 A6 had the same issue. There is a drain in front of the bulkhead that gets blocked, in my case by pine needles from my tree. I used a coat hanger to clear it and then cleaned it every couple of months and no more drowning carpet. It used to be next to the battery(which they moved to the trunk) under the windshield wiper motor. I haven't checked the exact location on my 2005 but good to know it's still an issue.
