Question about 2006 Infiniti G35

1 Answer

My 2006 G35 OEM battery recently came to the end of its' life. I replaced the battery with a diehard gold 24F. During the install I checked for the key off current draw by connecting a DMM in series with the negative battery post and the battery grounding wire. The DMM is reading 3A DC! I'm wondering if this is what prematurely ended the OEM battery's life. I have removed every fuse near the battery as well as in the passenger cabin. I also removed the BOSE amp harnesses. Despite this, I am still observing a 3A draw when the car is off. I've made sure there is no light on, that the seat heater switches are not on, etc. At this point I'm wondering if it could be a bad diode in the alternator which is draining the battery? Any help is greatly appreciated.

You have to allow up to 30 minutes for the computers to go to "sleep" after the battery is connected and the door is closed. It should be bellow 60ma once all the computers are asleep. A constant 3amp draw will drain the battery probably overnight.

    Yes, a 3A draw will drain the battery overnight which is why I am disconnecting the neg cable once i park the car. Is it normal for the computers to draw 3A during this 30 min time period?
    That's over 36watts.

Want to buy a new battery for 2000volvoS80, what size should i buy?

Research your factory battery cold cranking amps usually listed on the top of your battery or compare owners manual battery spec. Wise to meet/exceed these amps with your replacement battery. ie Autozone Gold is a 1000 CCA battery in many appications. 3 year free replacement prices at Costco, AutoZone, Interstate, sometimes the Sears Diehard, but can be limited in applications. I use the Autozone Duralast Gold, about $108. w/exchange. Don't be surprised to be able to increase the CCA by a couple hundred over the factory battery...this is a good thing:) Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 PT Cruiser Platinum series with a 2.4 liter engine, wjhat is a suitable replacement battery for this car; Sears die hard or interstate ?

Sears Diehard or Interstate would make a battery for your vehicle. Look for something with over 600 cca and you should be ok for the winter.

Diehard makes a Platinum battery, but it costs over $189.99.
Diehard Gold batteries are like $109 or so.

Walmart sells batteries that are comparable to the Diehard Gold for under $100.

However, I just bought a Platinum battery for my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo and it seems to work alright so far and has a 4 year free replacement warranty.

In general, the more you pay, the better the battery up to the 'best' which is the Diehard Platinum.
Walmart and Interstate do not offer a battery that has as long of a warranty or as good of a design as the Platinum from Diehard which uses proprietary technology to get a better warranty than normal.

The Platinum name in the PT Cruiser has nothing to do with the Platinum name for Diehard, by the way.

Good luck on finding a suitable replacement battery for your 2004 PT Cruiser Platinum.

Oem battery for 4 cylinder automaatic 2006 rav4

The OEM battery has a little blue indicator in the middle of it. This battery is no good. I had to replace mine after less than a year. I bought the RAV brand new off the lot. Instead of going to the dealer to get the same junk battery, I got a 24F-DLG duralast battery. Had that one since 2007 with no problems.

What's the best battery for a caddillac deville

I put a Diehard Platinum battery in mine for about $189.99 plus tax at Sears Holdings or Sears for short.

It has a 4 year free replacement warranty, the best in the business, and has higher cca's than the Gold version of the Diehard which is equivalent to the best that Walmart sells.

Good luck on buying the 'best' battery for your Cadillac.

What type of battery i have to replace for a 2000 Rodeo Isuzu ?

The 2000 rodeo came with two size motors the 2.2 engine or the 3.3 engine but bothh still use the same battery which is a 24f group size, you can use any brand, interstate is what i use and also napa batteries, as long as its a 24F group, the 24 is the size and the F stands for reverse terminals, for example a 65-24f is a 65 month battery and group is 24F, 65 mounth means they waranty for 65 months ans some will give a 12 month free replacement and then after 12months they prorate the battery they charge a certain amount for the time used on the 65 months, anyway its a group 24F. hope this helps.also have the charging system checked also.

Do I need Group size 24F or 35?

Cars usually call out for a specific size that fits in the tray. However sometimes people buy a "cheaper" battery (sometimes it is smaller) The bigger the battery the stronger it is (more cranking amps) It should last longer especially in extreme weather, freezing to 110 summers! As long as it fits and the cables reach, you should be fine.

My dealership wants $180 to replace my yukon xl battery. that seems expensive. Can you recommend alternatives?

Does the $180 include the cost of the new battery? If it does, that actually isn't a bad price. I checked autozone site, new battery is $150 and it's a 30 minute job to remove and replace, due to the battery being positioned where a lot of stuff has to be removed. It seems that GM does this more than other manufacturers, many GM models have batteries under back seats, or in the trunk. They should make access easier. If the $180 is labor only, I'd go to a private garage or service center and shop around for a good price, making sure they know what's involved. You could also go to alldatadiy site and subscribe to repair info on the Yukon, get step by step instuctions with diagrams and do this yourself. Good luck!
