Car Battery draining over night

2001 Nissan Altima GXE
The battery drained overnight so I charged the battery and took it to a mechanic friend of my Pastor, who is supposed to be good with imports. He tested the battery as good,alternator as good, and starter as good. I kept having the problem so I bought a brand new Duralast GOLD from Autozone. It only lasted (one week)!! I tried to start my car this morning and it was completely dead. Please help! Dave

Something is shorted and it could be very difficult to find sometimes. It could be something as simple as a button being pressed when it shouldn't turning on a light or feature that runs all the time, but in a 2001 that is unlikely as it should turn off all lights after a certain period of time. It could be something in the radio. What I suggest is to pull one fuse at a time for accessories, check your manual for what each fuse powers. If the battery still drains with that fuse out then put it back in a pull another. When you find the fuse that allows your battery to keep it's charge then you will have a much smaller field of offending components.

For example, if you pull the fuse that powers the radio and heater, and the battery keeps it's charge then you know it is either the heater or radio causing your problem.

This can take a few weeks to do completly but won't cost you a penny to do.

Something is draining the power I recommend you take it to a mechanic or a friend to be checked, hard to say what may be the problem without looking around.

Clearly something is draining the power.

A short is draining your battery. Double-check the alternator.

My 1995 altima gxe runs fine off the alternator but my battery is getting drained and wont restart after a 30 min drive . i removed the alarm system because the first symptoms were my alarm freaking out ,...


Most likely a bad alternator, voltage regulator, battery, or a massive power drain in the system. Have the alternator and battery tested at a Auto Zone or Kragen. The voltage regulator is part of the alternator. An if you have a power drain your going to need to trace the source to correct it.

1998 Nissan Altima GXE squealing noise


Could be the bearings in your alternator have gone dry and your alternator is about to quit out on you. I had a friend with an 01 altima and we could always hear him coming before we saw him because of this very problem. Changed the alternator out and noise went away. Thanks for using FixYa!
