What would cause the door ajar indicator light to remain on when car is off and doors are closed? This is also draining the battery.


Sounds like the wires to the door switch are shorted or the switch is damaged. You may have to remove a kick panel to access the wires.

Electrical problem on 1996 Dodge Dakota


It will drain at a rate of 21Watts X 2 = 42Watts at 12Volts = 3.5Amps. If you have an 70 Ah battery that is 20hours to totally flat from fully charged.

How did you test the battery? The fact that you jumped it and drove home with no problem tells you the battery is the problem.

2005 accent tail lights wont shut off


Pull that fuse or pull tail lamp relay, that should kill the lamps till you figure out the problem? You also have left an right tail lamp fuses, underhood fuse box. I don't know if tail lamp relay is faulty? Another concern, see the bottom wire on left of tail lamp relay, that is a ground controlled by the headlamp/multifunction switch, there could be a problem with that wire circuit or the multifunction switch. At the moment, I'm hoping just faulty relay.

Just had plugs,wires and bottom gasket leak fixed. Car cranked next day,several hrs. later,wouldn't start.mechanic came and jumped it off,said alternator was getting too hot. Next day cranked, drove to...


That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

I left a mirror light on overnight without noticing. it discharged the battery to the point of almost not starting in the morning. but it did start and run just fine. I had to re set the clock though. ...


I was told about that and what I remember is this:....The history that the car's computer has stored to keep your car running properly is lost when the battery goes dead....then when the battery is charged the computer has to gain back all that data to properly tune your car. Suposidly it takes 30 starts and drives to regain enough data to get back where you were.
Some are not sure that's true but I believe it.

The CCA;s(cold cranking amps) are too low on your battery. When this happens your car usually only starts when its cold. Recommend testing your battery and probably replacing it. Good luck, keep me posted.
