Could be battery cables or a loose battery connection. I had a friend who said his truck would crank sometime and sometime not. I took the battery terminals (one at a time) and cleaned both terminal and cable. We put everything back together and it never did that again. The terminals and cable looked clean to me but we cleaned them anyway since we had them apart. Hope this works.

SOURCE: something killing new battery & alternator in 1987 Ford Ranger

Well , The vehicle could have several problems. The vehicle needs to be scanned for codes. The electrical system has an open circuit. The open circuit can be a window switch , door switch , head light switch , a radio amp. or relay. There are so many possibilities that a very experienced mechanic is going to have to trace the wiring harness and check for power and resistance . Hopefully a code can be pulled to lead him in the right directions.
You have to make sure all the tail light bulbs are correctly installed and all the fuse installed are the correct type. The vehicle could have an open in the ignition switch and staying on all the time even with the key out and the engine off. I hope this information helps but to be honest there is no easy fix to the electrical system in this situation.

Good Luck

Electrical- something keeps killing my car battery.

Do a draw test on the battery and then start pulling fuses while you watch the amp meter.. Also check for lights left on like glove box light, vanity mirror lights left on in sun visors, these are the most common source of draws.

Something is draining my batteries and we have to keep jumping it.

I would think it may be something bad in a Relay , it may not be working and its keep consuming energy , check the relay box in the engine area beside the battery. You have to check each to see which one is not working. I ll check this first going to other step.

Common problems that keeps killing the battery.

A common problem with current drain is quite often a glovebox light or boot light on when the door is shut so you can not see it is on. Try removeing globes from these areas & see if it fixes the problem :-)

use a volt meter see where you are loosing the power sounds like a big drain anything can do it so i would first check all my fuses and replace them it see it im getting a constant flow or big drain through them if you have an after market radio i would replace that and see if that helps i had the same problem with mack truck after market radio was pushing more then 16.8 volts crazy would kill the battery in just a few hours

Something keeps killing my battery but its not the alternator

Disconnect the battery overnight and see if the problem is the battery itself, If it is weak then the problem is the battery itself. If its strong and your are sure of you short inspect the ignition switch itselfcansmo_202.gif
