Well, congrats on a great vehicle!
Suggest that you get a cheap volt meter at Harbor Freight (about 3 bucks) and then check the current draw at the battery (with everything off, pull the positive cable and place the voltmeter (set on DC Current/Amps) between the cable and the battery.
What current level does it show? More than about 200MA is a problem (you need to be sure that the internal door lights are off!!)
You can set the meter on the hood so that you can see it from inside the vehicle... Then, with everything off, and the voltmeter set as described above, pull a fuse and look at the meter. Repeat the "fuse pulling" exercise until the meter reads about 0 MA draw. That is the circuit that is causing the problem.... NOW you can troubleshoot a simple item or set of items.... until the problem is fixed.
To keep the battery charged overnite, keep the fuse pulled until the problem is fixed.

2005 FORD FREESTYLE THAT HAS NEW BATTERY, CABLES STARTER AND ALTERNATOR. BUT DOES NOT STAY CHARGED


What do you mean won't stay charged ? Battery dies while driving , dies over night ? Is the battery symbol lit on the dash , check charging system message on driver info center ? If it drains over night there is a parasitic draw on the electrical system ! If while driving the battery goes dead it's not charging , with a new alternator the problem is in the electrical circuitry . Blown fusible link or fuse . This charging system is controlled by the PCM - engine computer , the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator should have battery voltage , if not blown fusible link near the battery . The connector with three wires ,one should have B+ voltage , the other two come from the PCM .

DEAD BATTERY OVERNIGHT


Try to unplug ground wire at night and plug in in the morning.
If the battery is good, then it must be there's short circuit, check your wiring.
If the battery is dead, then the battery is bad.

Does not seem that there is any electrical current. Checked all the fuses, they are fine. It doesn't seem like a battery problem as there is absolutely no current. Drove it last night everything worked. ...


Is the battery dead? Your alternator may be bad. If you drove it last night you may have driven on battery power and not realized it. You should have gotten some kind of warning message. Need to know if the battery is dead.

I put a brand new battery in the truck and it was


Well its either the battery is also nogood or you have a dead short in the wiring.
TAKE the feed off the battery and charge it up to max gharge 12volts, then just touch the lead on to the lug and if it has a small spark then you have a short,
But make sure everything is turned off before you do it if there is no spark at all try putting a test light between battery and cable lug,if it lights you still have a dead short...Let me know how you go Ron

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery


bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.
