Could be as simple as a bad battery. If not, try pulling out fuses until you find the one that is draining it.

BMW 2005 LT got a parasitic draw of 1.02 ma with everything off pulled all fuses but still showing up anywhere else I may look possibly a relay sticking any ideas ?


1.02 ma is extremely low and may be the current used by the ecm to maintain the CPU memory and to run the clock setting
a current draw that low will not discharge a fully operational battery
consider this --a good 500 cranking amp battery with a discharge of 1ma will last over a year or years before it shows signs of needing a recharge
however if the battery has an problem cell then internal discharge will flatten a battery in hours
have a load test done on the battery

2000 subaru forester wont start battery is good what can I check next


Do headlights work? Do they get dim when you hit the start position, if so battery has bad cell.
Bad batteries might be OK after charging and running the car for a time but will discharge after car sits for maybe longer than a half hour. Usually a bad cell.
Take to auto parts store, they will load test it for free.

Can the car alarm kill your battery but you can start the car but after you turn it off battey died again


sure, if you let the alarm drain the battery, this can destroy any stock battery.
The car batteries are not like golf carts and are not deep discharge rated. (so can be damaged)
so charge the battery, if it wont hold a charge, it is bad.
if it discharges silently, and darkly parked , that is phantom discharge
if is discharges , driving that is a engine charge system failure.
parked over night discharging is phantom discharging.
if the alarm goes off and stays in alarm , then dont use, it.
if the battery is happy with the alarm defeated then the Alarm is bad.

The battery measure 12.6vdc charged,(rested) "voltmeter"
and running measures, 13.3 to 15vdc at idle.

The battery keeps running down when the car sits idle for a few days. The alternator has been tested and verified to be in good working order.


most obvious cause is a diode in teh alternator but it could be the boot light thats another favourite ,or just the battery is sulphated up and needs desulphating as follows -discharge battery with 6 watt bulb when completely flat put on a trickle charge ,when fulkl discharge again and then recharge ,4/5 times and the battery amp hour capacity will improve ,then it will take a month to go flat which is about right on a modern car unless it has a shut down mode ,

My car refuses to start the battery is discharge, how can i charge my car battery


The best way is to recharge it for an hour on a big charger, or a few hours on a small one, a lot of people will jump start it and then drive it for a couple of hours but this is not good for the alternator, also i think after charging the battery check charging system.

Car and lawn tractors will start with booster cable and run. Once the ignition is turned off need a booster again. What is the problem. Batteries are showing charge?


lead acid (auto) type batteries cannot be left in a discharged state very long without damage ...if they have been discharged awhile then they will recharge but at greatly refuced capacity ... sometimes they can be recovered but usually its perminant damage .. even if the batteries can be saved it would still take several hours to recharge ...so leaving it on a charger overnight will show you if its a lost cause or not ...you can have the batteries "load tested" usuallly at auto parts stores for free .....they should be fully charged first to save time ...lead acid batteries should always be kept in a state of full charge ...never store them in a discharged condition or allow them to selff discharge (a discharged battery will freeze over the winter) ... charging once a month should keep them healthy .. more often in a car since the computer draws current all the time .. if you have a regulated charger then you can leave it connected all the time for storage ...high resistance battery connectios will have the same effect .. so remove and clean the battery terminals to eliminagte that possibility ... you can have your alternator tested at most auto parts stores ..usually free .. if you have maintainable batteries then check the water level . dont over fill .. use distilled water ...if your charging systems are ok then it sounds like you need new batteries ...

2007 yukon. battery goes dead in a few hours. It will do this about once every 6-12 months. Doors lock themselves when no one is near vehicle and keys are out of ignition . Does this every few months


I think you have what is called a parasitic drain. First check to make sure the light in the glove box, under hood, indicator light showing door is ajar, interior light ect all go out when they are suppose to.

If this is something that happen only once every in 6 to 12 months I think you are probably dealing with something that is human caused, something left on and not a mschanical issue. If it happens repeatedly when it does occurs then your parasitic drain is probably more of a short in the system. You can disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent yourself from getting stuck when this is going on. When this is happening you pull fuses for various systems and see if the battery still discharges the next day. If the battery is discharged the next day then those systems whose fuse were pulled are not involved. If the battery does not discharge then you have identified which systems are involved. Again this works only if you are having the battery discharge repeatedly.
