Something is draining the battery. That means there is an "open" circuit somewhere. Since you say it happens when you turn your blinkers on, I would say that is where to start. I am used to working on older cars so don't know what related sensors there may be on your vehicle. I usually start with the fuses and/or flasher can. The flasher can would probably be making a clicking sound if it was bad, but like I said, I don't know your vehicle. The fuses are usually located underneath the dash on the driver's side in a small box.

Also check for a bare or cracked wire which may be shorting out against metal. Problem: most cars now have the wires all covered up so you can't access them without taking apart the panel underneath the steering wheel. Or taking apart the steering column.

If you can't find a "shorting" fuse or wire, you will have to have it tested to find where the problem is.

Make sure the alternater belt is the correct tension....If its been recently replaced, it may have been a size too big. Have you also had the regulator checked for output?

I have a 1996 chevy s-10pick-up truck my blinkers are not working 4-way flashers are ok,fuses are ok,light bulbs are ok.where is the relays or flasher?


Flashers are generally located either under the dash (they hide them behind the horizontal panel) under the hood in the fuse box.

Also, relays can be hidden under the hood or in the fuse box.

The interior fuse box is where the 'turn signal' fuse is located.

First off, add a new ground wire from the engine to the body just for the hell of it. Now clean all the battery cable connetors aat all point and add WD40 afterwards. Also check connectors from dash panel to engine circuits. This is real suspect. WD 40 them also

2001 chevy silverado 1500 v8 battery drain after sits for 1or2day


, do a simple test on the charging system...check battery voltage. should be 12v or better. start engine & check volts at idle, no accessories on. volts should read 13.5 -14v. Turn on all accessories(including headlamps on high) volts should drop slightly but should not creep down. Definitely not below 12.5. If voltage drops lower than 12.5, the regulator (in the alternator) is not working. either change regulator or change entire alternator. Alternator drive belt should have sufficient tension so that alternator cannot be turned easily by hand. If it can, check belt tensioner.
