Question about 1992 Chrysler New Yorker

Open Question

My 92 fifth avenue keeps draining the battery when it sits, the radio shows only the clock, the turn signals pull a big draw on the volt meter, a new battery was installed less than a year ago but without driving it for 3 months the battery has been so drained it won't hold a charge.

First, check the brake light switch under the dash. If the switch is not stuck on, then the stop lamp relay in the trunk is bad.
hope this wrks

I’m having this same problem on my 99 LHS, I’ve been told that it’s caused the body control module. Maybe a bad ground?

I have a Lincon Ls 4 door sedan v8 for some reason the battery keeps getting drained what should be the problem?

Hi John, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

John, when the battery goes dead after sitting over night this mean you have an ignition draw on the system and what cause this problem is something staying on. When you turn the key off and close the door, everything is suppose to go to sleep (Turn Off). When something stays on it drains the battery until its dead. Here's a way to find what circuit it staying on, but you'll need a volt-meter to find it. With a volt meter turned on and the setting to Milli-Volts, hook the BLACK lead to the negative battery post NOW hook the RED lead to the other side of the engine compartment on a good ground anywhere and check the reading on the meter. If it is 00.4 or below you do not have a draw. BUT if the reading is 1.00 or higher you have a draw on the system. Watch the meter as you unplug one fuse at a time and if the meter reading drops from 1.3 down to 0.4 then you have found the circuit that is staying on. NOTE: Be sure to plug each fuse back in before removing the next fuse. Do this with all fuses and relays until you find the circuit that causing the problem. NEXT after finding the circuit causing the drain NOW you'll need to find out what all is on that circuit and unplug each component until you see the drain go away. EXAMPLE: If you find that the Radio, Amplifier, Clock, ABS Module are all on that circuit. Then with the fuse plugged back in so you can see the 1.3 drain, simply unplug one thing at a time until the drain drops to 0.4 or below. NOTE: plug each thing you've unplugged before unplugging the next. For further assistance contact me on my auto-repair website here:

1989 buick park avenue battery wont stay charged

A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

94 grand cherokee baterry goes dead after sitting 5 days starter clicks and flashers flash. recharged battery will last another 5 days,

battery could be at fault or there is a draw in system that pulls down battery
have battery tested and leave it disconected for a few days then reconect to see if vehicle starts
if it does battery should be o.k. next is there any thing that stayes on (aftermarket stuff)
that may cause a draw on system if thats ok need to performed parasetic draw on system
hook up voltage meter between positive cable and meter
on 20 volt schale put red wire of meter to battery positive post black wire to red wire that was hook to battery voltaged should be minimal only to keep computers alive (clock - radio preset-etc etc)
if draw is high start removing fuses in system one at a time and check the voltage meter until it drops
you have now located the faulty cicuit that that fuse feeds start looking in those area
also feel starter selenoid and alternator at rear to see if they feel warm thet could be partly switch on
killing the battery over time
good luck

Battery has a electrical draw on it

Are you familiar with removing battery cable from battery + and installing a 12 volt test light from cable end to battery post ? If the light is on bright, you have a good draw. Now start removing fuses you suspect may be causing the draw, and when light goes real dim, or out, you found the circuit with the draw. Keep in mind radio memory will cause small draw as well. Just keep track of where they came from.

Battery drained every day,battery is brand new.

When it is running,put a volt meter across battery terminals. You should see 13 + volts if alternator is working. Also put an ampere meter in series with a battery cable,key off, engine off, and you should see less than 40 to 50 Mili-Amps. If more,start pulling one fuse at a time,untill you find the circuit that is draining the battery

Ok, I just got a new battery and coil ignition bwd.I also had my alternator re-built about 2 weeks ago,but my battery light still pops on when i turn the headlights on!my belts seem to be tight enuf. is it...

if you have a multi meter,
check voltage at battery with car running,should be at least 13-14 volts,
now turn on fan motor to high,flashers on,radio on, and check voltage at battery,regulator should have adjusted voltage to handle the load,should still be 13-14 volts,
now turn all that stuff off,and turn on headlights and recheck battery voltage,if below 13-14 volts replace regulator,if voltage is spiking higher than 14volts replace do not need other belts.

Something is draining the battery

You have a draw and a draw pulling more than a couple hundred milliamps.This will drain the battery in an objectionably short amount of time.. All the things you mentioned and more can cause this draw. The best diagnostic step towards isolating your draw is with meter that reads Volts DC or better yet a test light.(I think) ..disconnect B+ positive battery cable. Install meter or lamp in series with disconnected cable and battery post. You do have some smal draws like computer memories,clocks etc which will show a low amount of voltage hence a very dim test light. If you are drawing heavy ,obviously the meter will show a full blown 12 volts and the lamp bulb will be very bright. Remove fuses,unplug relays,dis-connect devices while watching the voltage or lamp.You should begin to isolate offending item once the circuit has been detected, Generally pulling all fuses individually will tell you at least which circuit is pulling the amps.
