Circuits will drain batteries not fuses you will need to have someone check the draw on each circuit in the vehicle. start with any recent electrical installations. keep keys out of the vehicle then remove negative battery terminal and then use 12 volt light bulbin between the battery and cable. bright light means power draw. remove fuses one at a time till the light goes out. the circuit that makes the light go out is bad.

I have a 2011 Kia Sorento that just had alternator changed and my battery light will come on and go off sometimes multiple times while driving. Battery is good what could be causing this..


You probably will need a shop to look at and test the charging system. It could be as simple as a loose connection, or something more serious. The newer systems often have the computer, the ecu, controlling the alternator and how much it charges. So it's no longer just either the battery or the alternator being at fault. It depends on the manufacturer and how the system is designed.
I don't know about Kia, but any repair shop could find the information.

Car battery keeps draining.is the altenator overcharging it.


Have the battery tested and replace as necessary. Once you are sure the battery is good, have the charging system tested. The voltage for this is between 13.5 volts and 14.7 v. Anything greater than that is just too much and can cause the battery to overheat and have to be replaced prematurely. Let me know if you need anything else.

Battery keeps going dead in 2004 H2


because you are going back to a dealer
take it to an accredited auto electrician and have the electric system checked properly instead of guessing the fault

Frequent headlamp replacement


Have your battery checked. A weak battery (Sorentos all have lousy stock batteries) may allow electrical spikes to blow lamps. Also make sure your battery cables are tight.

Note: The stock battery on 2003 and 2004 Sorentos V-6 models is a group 24. The group 34 battery is a better choice with more CCA and reserve capacity bit may require minor modifications to the battery tray or hold-down clamp.

Make sure you're using good quality headlamp bulbs. Auto-parts stores with lamps behind the counter are often higher quality than blister-pak lamps from Wally-World.
