U will need the factory diagrams for this detailed info which we don't have here, this is a link to buy the Ford OEM wiring diagram booklet (used) that has every diagram u need at a very reasonable price.

Something is drawing down the battery on my 2005 Odyssey and the draw is coming from the under the hood fuse #15 40 amp. What does that Fuse control. When fuse is pulled engine will not start.


Fuse 15 supplies power to a whole bunch of things so it is little wonder that your Odyssey won't start with it removed. You may have to remove other fuses one at a time to find what is causing the current drain.

Replaced alt/ battery 2005 PT cruiser is good but i loose the charge and battery is dead by morning ...even after running my car !


Connect an ammeter and set to the 2 amp scale and check out the current drain with the ignition key removed. Remove a fuse one by one until the current drain goes down. That is the fuse that is connected to the power line that is responsible for the drain. Check all of the accessories, etc on that line for the draw.

In meantime till you resolve the issue just disconnect the negative battery terminal till next time you want to use the car so the battery does not drain.

99 yukon battery will not stay charged brand new battery


with ampmeter take the current draw of battery max amp 30mA
if more than 30mA remove fuse one at a time and watch if current draw go down.
when current draw go down on a fuse than that is the circuit that drain your battery

Battery drains down after 2 days. 2001 Silverado 1500 extended cab. when truck shut down after 45 seconds gauges come back on killing battery. pulled fuses in engine compt. with milla amp test in line ,no...


The only realistic way the gauges can come back on is if there is a problem with your ignition switch - it is not staying off in the off position. The switch is located at the bottom of the steering column and may have come loose, may be misaligned or may be faulty.

You need to perform a parasitic drain test. Use an amp meter connected in series with the battery cable and see what the meter says. Note that it should be an amp meter that reads a lot.

I need a fuse panel layout for a 2005 ford focus ZX?


1 amp over an extended period (like overnight) is an excessive draw, and would drain the battery in a few days. What happens after the one minute? Does it continue to draw, or is that as long as you checked it?
If fuse F7 is the ignition off draw (IOD), then you are on the right track. The IOD serves to feed the computer's keep alive memory, the radio presets, the clock, and the alarm system. But the draw is measured in milli-amps. About 200 milli-amps or less is normal (and that is 0.2 amps), and that would not drain the battery in such a short time.
I would have a shop check this out with an ammeter and a device called a Shunt Bar. Ask for a battery drain test, or an off-draw test; well, explain your problem and have them check for too much current being used when everything is shut off.
Good luck.

I have a draw from my battery how can I find it? I have put a test light in between the neg. post and the cable and the light stays on.I have pull all the fuses one at a time and the light dose not go...


Could be a ground problem; I send you a drain test to check it, you will need a digital volt and ohm meter to perform a battery draw test.

WARNING: Do not attempt this test on a lead-acid battery that has recently been recharged. Explosive gases may cause personal injury. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

CAUTION: To prevent damage to the meter, do not crank the engine or operate accessories that draw more than 10A.

NOTE: No factory-equipped vehicle should have more than a 50 mA (0.050 amp) draw.

Check for current drains on the battery in excess of 50 milliamps (0.050 amp) with all the electrical accessories off and the vehicle at rest for at least 40 minutes . Current drains can be tested with the following procedure:

NOTE:
Many electronic modules draw 10 mA (0.010 amp) or more continuously.
Use an in-line ammeter between the negative battery post and its respective cable.

Typically, a drain of approximately one amp can be attributed to an engine compartment lamp, glove compartment lamp, or interior lamp staying on continually. Other component failures or wiring shorts may be located by selectively pulling fuses to pinpoint the location of the current drain. When the current drain is found, the meter reading will fall to an acceptable level. If the drain is still not located after checking all the fuses, it may be due to the generator.

To accurately test the drain on a battery, an in-line digital ammeter must be used. Use of a test lamp or voltmeter is not an accurate method due to the number of electronic modules.

When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) relearns its fuel trim. The vehicle may need to be driven to relearn the strategy.

Make sure the junction box(es)/fuse panel(s) is accessible without turning on interior or underhood lights. Drive the vehicle at least 5 minutes and over 48 km/h (30 mph) to turn on and activate the vehicle systems.
Allow the vehicle to sit with the key OFF for at least 40 minutes to allow modules to time out/power down.

Connect a fused jumper wire between the negative battery cable and the negative battery post to prevent modules from resetting and to catch capacitive drains.
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative battery post without breaking the connection of the jumper wire.

NOTE: It is very important that continuity is not broken between the negative battery post and the negative battery cable when connecting the meter. If this happens, the entire procedure must be repeated. Connect the tester between the negative battery cable and the post. The meter must be capable of reading milliamps and should have a 10 amp capability.

NOTE:
If the meter settings need to be switched or the test leads need to be moved to another jack, the jumper wire must be reinstalled to avoid breaking continuity.
Amperage draw will vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on the equipment package. Compare to a similar vehicle for reference.
No factory-equipped vehicle should have more than a 50 mA (0.050 amp) draw.

Remove the jumper wire. If the draw is found to be excessive, remove fuses from the central junction box one at a time and note the current drop. Do not reinstall the fuses until you are finished testing. To properly isolate each of the circuits, all of the fuses may need to be removed and install one fuse, note the amperage draw, then remove the fuse and install the next fuse, etc.

If the current draw is still excessive, remove the fuses from the battery junction box (BJB) one at a time and note the current drop. Do not reinstall the fuses until you have finished testing. To properly isolate each of the circuits, all of the fuses may need to be removed. After removal of all of the fuses, install one fuse, note the amperage draw, then remove the fuse and install the next fuse until each circuit has been tested. When the current level drops to an acceptable level after removing a fuse, the circuit containing the excessive draw has been located.

Check the wiring schematic in the wiring diagram for any circuits that run from the battery without passing through the junction boxes. This could find in the Service Manual or Haynes books. If the current draw is still excessive, disconnect these circuits until the draw is found. Also disconnect the generator electrical connections if the draw can not be located. The generator may be internally shorted, causing the current drain.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Where is my drain coming from?


I would suggest investing in an inexpensive digital mutimeter and do some testing.  Hook it in-line with the hot cable from the battery.  You want to be reading amps, not volts.  That should give you a reading immediately of some current being used.  While it's hooked up, start pulling fuses, one at a time.  if that doesn't stop the current draw, replace it and pull the next one.  Eventually you'll find the circuit that is drawing down your battery.  From there, you have to check individual items in that circuit.
good luck.

Dead Batterry. High current draw with ignition off.


My 2002 GMS Sierra draws a simaliar amount of current.(.52 A). There a two items which draw current all the time on my truck. One is the OEM security system and I also have a wirless auto start unit. Both of these have a continouse draw on the battery. I've installed a high current marine battery switch to isloate this load if my truck will not be used for more than two weeks. Otherwise, the battery will be ecessivley drained. Regards, Jeff
