Question about 2000 Honda Civic
My car battery drains when it is off. To avoid draining I have to disconnect the battery everytime. I noticed that sometimes when I'm trying to disconnect I hear the AC clutch relay getting disengaged and if try to connect the battery back I hear it getting engaged. I'm not sure why the clutch is getting engaged even if the car is off.
It's called a dead short if you take off the + battery terminal and scratch it across the post of the + it will make small sparks if there is a draw. there shouldn't be any sparks at all unless something is on drawing power / eg clock will draw verry little and you almost wont be able to see any sparks or if you have a major draw it will spark like wild fire . if it sparks wildly , start unhooking things that you suspect drawing power and check for draw . might need to get a-c pump serviced. but find the power draw first.
