The technician should check for a short by putting an inductive ammeter on the positive or negative cable.

If the draw is over .2 A you have a short somewhere in your car's transmission, or accessories, or something.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

If the battery is completely dead you should buy a new one. Batteries get damaged when they completely discharge. Just put in the new one and start. You might have the emission light go on after a start from a dead battery. Reset it yourself with an OBDII tool or your dealer can reset it. You can drive there at least on your own this way.

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

sounds like your starter motor is at fault.I have had this problem before and found the starter was draining the battery due to a short in the windings of the motor.
