You have to identify which circut is the draw on. with a volt ohm meter set to mA setting you measure the the draw. remove the positive battery terminal and put the meter in series. if you have more than a 26mA draw you statr pulling fuses under thehood to identify the circuit. once the problem circuit is found find what component on the circuit is causing the draw. Good luck

Have a 2000 dodge durango w/new batter, blower all lights work but battery wont take charge??????????????????????


If you have changed the battery, have it load tested to make sure it is not defective.
A tech can also check the voltage output and regulator. I am assuming you have already had these two check done as well as ECM error codes. The PCM, powertrain control module would be my next component to have checked. A dealership should have the software to check this. I believe that the OEM part runs around $8 to $900.00 dollars. You may be able to get an aftermarket replacement for around $200, but once installed electrical components are not returnable. Do not get stranded somewhere, have a dealship check this problem out!

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500, everyday i go out in the morning the battery is dead. bought new battery and put in a new alternator, truck still is dead each morning. anyone have a clue what would be...


Check your convience and vanity type lighting to be sure they are shutting off( underhoodlight, glove box, back sun visor mirror lights, etc...). Next you can use a clamp on amp draw gun and follow the draw thru the harness to the problem. This tool is available at most auto parts stores. Also, just because a battery is new doesn"t mean it Good!

I have a 2000 dodge durango 5.2 v8. The battery and the alternator are brand new but the amps still wont keep a charge? Can you tell me whats wrong and the steps for me to fix it?


Hi, first check voltage at the battery with the engine running. If it's less than 14 volts DC, you may have a bad charge wire of a burned fuse. If it's more than 14 volts, there is probably a draw in the truck that is draining the battery. If you have a meter or at least a test light, you can troubleshoot to the fuse circuit and then look for the problem component. This requires a few electrical skills.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

I am having an issue with the battery completely dead when the truck sits for more than an hour or so. I have replaced the battery, alternator, and starter, with no luck. I have a drain from somewhere...


I would not have replaced any parts that were not proven bad......if the battery is dead in 1 hour, that's a HUGE draw. take the positive battery cable off and wire in a headlight or some kind of light, if its bright, start taking out fuses until it goes out. that fuse will have the problem item on its circuit. . trace all components on that circuit for the draw. that's a quick and dirty redneck way to find a draw, but sometimes it works. whatever is drawing the battery down should be warm/ hot. so if the truck is cold, make sure the battery is good/charged, and feel what is warm...

My battery keeps draining down at night it's a 99 dodge durango


you have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers

Battery dead every morning


Something is shorting out (drawing power but not returning it to the battery)
Make sure you don't have any accessories plugged in and running or anything else running or on when you go to bed at night as this would draw down the power!
I'm assuming you have to jump start it every mourning.
Is that correct?
If so the new battery and alternator will be strained and go again soon!
Go to an auto parts store like Advanced Auto Parts and have your battery and alternator tested (they do this for free) and may be able to verify that you have a power draw somewhere!
A jury rig fix would be to put a battery disconnect (available at any auto parts store and pretty easy to install) at the terminal to the battery and disconnecting every night but that won't fix the power draw.
What was the original problem that led you to change the battery and alternator?

Battery drains down over night


that click noise is nothing! when you put neg post on then positive sparky? if so probably solenoid circuit ignition on starter will draw power but will "NOT " engaged until you crank Key!!
