Question about 1995 Ford Escort
Battery seems to have died overnight but I can't open the car to lift the hood cause neither of the keys will open the car Pretty sure it must be a battery problem because couldn't get the radio to go off yesterday no matter what I tried.

Assuming that the new battery is not defective and that the charge rate was verified at the battery, not just the alternator alone, you will need to begin by first making sure that any hidden lights are not remaining on (glove box, under-hood, trunk light etc) If they are good, then put an ammeter between either battery cable and the battery and check for system draw. After installing the ammeter, begin removing fuses one by one 'till the reading on the ammeter drops, then you will need to identify which system that fuse operates and check each of the components in that system to determine which one is causing the problem. Certain systems do create a small draw, such as the radio, which needs constant power for setting retention...you are looking for a draw larger than that. With a lot of patience and a bit of luck, you will find the cause.
