Battery Drains after 2 days of not driving

After I have left my 2004 1.8 180bhp tt for 2 days without driving it the battery has drained to the point that I can't start the car and need to jump start it. The non standard car kit has already been removed yet it has happened again - any ideas what else it could be?

How do you tell if it needs charged or not?


Hi Kelly, A fully charged battery is 12.4 to 12.6. and when the motors running it's 14.3 to 14.6... Three reasons your battery is flat (isn't charging), You have a faulty battery, A power drain or you have a faulty alternator... Clean your battery terminals and If you don't have a multimeter then Try jump starting your flat battery and driving your car for at least ten minutes then turned the motor off and try starting it WITHOUT jump start, If the battery's still flat then it's the battery, If your car starts straight away but won't start the next day then you have a power drain... If you jump start your flat battery and go for a ten minute drive but during that drive the motor dies without turning off the key then it's the alternator....
A mechanic or an auto electrician can usually test Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

My 2008 chrysler will not start without a hard jump and there is a rotten egg smell coming from engine


1. I answered the starting and battery question in your duplicate posting on this question.

2. The air conditioning system requires a drain system to direct condensation (ie water) out of the vehicle. It is quite normal for the air con system to produce water as you know.. If you have water leaking into the car interior when running the aircon it is an indication that the drain is blocked and the water cannot escape. The drain tube runs to the underside of the vehicle and if it is blocked this can often be right at the end of the drain tube under the car. That is the first point to check.

Drained battery


Clean the battery terminals and cable terminals. Hook battery back up. Try to start again (with or without jumping). If it starts , make sure the charging system is working. If you have a voltmeter (or gauge in car dash). You can drive to autozone, Oreillys or most auto parts and they will check the battery and charging system free of charge.

My 2012 hyundai sonata battery will drain dead after 2 days when I don't start it, what could be the problem? I have to jump start it and if I drive it everyday its fine.


it can be a number of problems one can be you have something is staying on it can be a light in the boot,you alarm is wired wrong or a radio is not off or it can be the battery no good. By jumping the car with a jumper leads can damage the battery, or you alternator is not charging good. First to check your alternator you will need a volt meter and place the negative from your meter to the negative of the batter and the positive to the positive and start your car. If the reading is 14.3 V to 14.8 V your alternator is good than the problem it can be any of the other things that I indicated

You have overheated the engine, check the engine cooling fan operation there is a problem I suspect.

Having problem starting my car without a jump, started recently.


  • Well, if it starts with a jump and runs all day with no problem then that would indicate that the alternator is doing it's job of charging at least. Does the car function normally all day after a jump start? The problem could very well be the battery needs replaced or something is draining the battery overnight and the battery is fine.

  • I would pull the battery and have it tested at your local major parts store. Or better yet if drive-able, drive it the vehicle to the parts store so they can load test it.

  • If it is good then you want to look for a wiring issue. If it tests bad then replace the battery.


  • Hope this helps.

Hi my car wont start,after i get a jump it will run that hold day then the next morning nothing will come on no lights anything


your charging system is working okay or you would have to have it jumped more than once a day.you have a bad battery that needs replacing as running it during the day the charging system keeps the battery charged up enough to work.you could have a drain on the battery from something in the car that is not shutting down that you will have to have checked out.or sitting over night the battery runs down to the point that it needs to be jumped started if its an old battery(over5-6years).

I recently purchased a 1998 Camry. It was fine for a few days. I let it sit without driving it for 2 days and it needed a jump start. Today, I jumped it again and 2 hours later it won't start. I checked...


There very will could be a battery drain, but what I would do first, is go to any auto parts, where they will do a battery test for free, could have a bad cell in the battery and not holding a charge.

Lights left on, battery totally flat, will not


You've probably flooded it then - TOO much gas in the engine.
Try this charge the battery or use a GOOD one, and beofre yout turn the key push the gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there. Then try and start without lifting your foot. Crank for 20-30 seconds at most.
Do that about 2-3 times, then try to start normally.
Holding your foot stops more gas from entering the engine and allows the gas in there to be cleared out.
Flooding is way easy and then can make starting very hard. You have to be aware of this when trying to jump start a dead battery.

Audi tt quattro 180bhp2000 conv keeps looseing power


Faulty batteries are rare. Typically when battery won't stay charged an alternator is needed, but you can check for a current drain first. To do this you need an ammeter. Disconnect positive line of battery and connect the circuit "through" the ammeter instead. (DO NOT START THE CAR LIKE THIS!!!). Monitor current draw - as you do so, pull each fuse from fuse panel (left side of dash). Don't pull them all, but rather remove one at a time. When the ammeter shows minimal current drain you'll know which circuit is causing the draw. You can then disconnect individual loads on that curcuit until you find the culprit. Hopefully it's something easy like a light switch - but it could be more involved.
