    Go to an auto store and get a 12 v test light. Disconnect the positive battery terminal and clip the clip end of the test light on the battery post. Place the pointed end of the tester to the positive cable, if the test light is lit then something is on even though the key or switch is off and whatever it is it is drawing down the battery. Then go to the fuse boxes and remove one fuse at a time and when the light for the tester goes off then you have found the source of the draw. This assumes the battery has been tested and is good. Please keep in mind that even thought you turned a switch off does not mean the switch works and is turning off the item in question. There could be a short soewhere. Has the owner had something added to his car such as fog lights, a DVD player from outside source, a new cigarett lighter to plug in a phone charger etc,when did the problem start? Hope this helps.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly

I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

My dodge carvan won't start after 3 attempts. it will run and then die. the alarm system will then light up. does someone have a quick fix

Put key in ignition (do not start) for EXACTLY 10 minutes. As SOON as the anti-theft lights shuts off, IMMEDIATELY start van.

This is a very common problem in GM vehicles.

There is a Passlock or Passlock2 anti-theft system. You can buy a bypass kit with instructions for it.
