Bad ground wire, anti-theft system, and a radio or accessorie not turned completely off. Radio wiring can do this as well if not grounded properly.

    Not a problem. Seems to be fairly common. Come back anytime.

2005 chevy equinox changed battery and alternator and still drains battery the next day or two


First are you sure the alternator is charging the battery ?
If it is, someone will need to pull fuses and disconnect major circuits until you find the drain. It could be a simple relay, or a short to ground in the harness somewhere.

Interior light or inside hood light. Sometimes an alternator can short inside and drain a battery. A pinched wire touching a ground.

What kind of battery is needed for this vehicle. F-150


Usually all fords use group 65 batteries. There are also group 58's but usually those are used in passenger vehicles. What you need is a group 65. Brand is up to you. Remember one thing, the average life span of a battery regardless of the brand is about 4 yrs. So having a good waranty and an ok brand is better than purchasing a well known brand with a bad warranty.. Good luck

BATTERY IS DRAINING EVEN WHILE CAR IS NOT IN USE


I stated "such as a light " there are many, many other causes of 12 volt drains such as a seat switch that might hang up and stick. Empty that battery overnight. First install a 9V Battery Radio memory / and clock or you will have to reset both. Disconnect BLACK negative cable of battery. Using a 12V testlight, connect one end to the disconnected cable, and the other to the negative battery terinal. It should light. Remove the 20A BODY and LIGHTER fuse first . This will eliminate the courtesy light circuit . If light goes off the drain is on that circuit. STILL LIT ? drain is on another circuit. Start by eliminating fuses. Hope this helps.
