New battery keeps draining. Don't know what is going on. It's a 2001 ford explorer sport 4.0 l.


Starter and alternator are the most likely culprits(one day). Interior lights and radio will also cause this. But usually takes a couple days to drain the battery.

Fuse 8 on 1990 allante is drawing down the battery. will completly drain battery in 2 days


Have you checked BCM input parameter BI61? That is the most common cause of the 2-3 day battery drain. Have you tried pulling fuse #8 under the ash tray for the CPS to see if that stops the drain? You can pull one of the plugs off the AC blower control module to isolate that. If you can not hear the blower motor running with the key off, that probably is not an issue.

you should check the voltage on your batttery when the car is running. If it reads about 13.5 to 14 volts, your alternator is doing it's job. If it's less, replace the alternator. If the alternator is ok, you have a power drain somewhere, you will need a proffesional to look at it.

Battery goes flat when standing for 5 days. Ford


if the battery is one year old and older, the power drains specially if it stays idle for a week or more. if the battery is new, it will not drain fast. there are components directly connected to the battery bypassing the ignition key such as the clock, warning system, etc.

Why does my new battery go dead after 5 days


I know nothing about jaguars, but I had a similar problem on an older Chrysler. You have some features of the car which put a drain on the battery, even when the car is not running, but these should not kill the battery that fast unless it is a Lucas electrical system... ha ha! Not having special equipment or knowledge I removed the positive battery cable and put an ammeter between battery and the cable. With the ignition switch in the OFF position I began pulling out fuses, one by one, until I identified which circuit was causing the large current drain. No doubt there will be more than one gadget on any given fuse. So once you know which gadgets are on the offending circuit you reinstall the fuse and disconnect those items one by one until you identify which one is causing the big drain. Then you either replace that gadget or live without it.
