Have your battery load tested. 175 m/a draw is onboard computer and is normal. (Most BMWs have larger m/a draws than that) I suspect your battery is getting tired and is not charging as deeply as it once did.

My 2009 pt cruiser battery goes dead overnite

I had this problem as well on a earlier year PT Cruiser, i tried everything i could think of, removing fuses one by one while watching the current draw on the battery led me to the radio, after pulling the fuse for the radio the current draw dropped down to about 150mA, i don't know what was wrong with the radio but i replaced it and the problem went away. The IOD fuse supplies power to the ECU and all of the electronic control modules in the car, how much current draw are you seeing with the IOD fuse in, and how much are you seeing with it out? Its not uncommon to see a couple hundred mA in standby to everything, especially if you have the factory security system with immobilizer, chipped keys. But you may have to pull one fuse at a time to find the culprit if you are seeing a much higher draw, should be less than 1 amp at the worst.

My battery keeps going dead

If this happens while driving, you have a charging system problem. With a multi meter connected to battery(red+ black-) check alternator output, it should be 13v or better.
If it's dead after sitting a spell and your batt. is 4-5 years old, it may be time for a new one.
Also you might have a draw, (somthing stays on) use a 12v test light, disconect 1 batt. terminal and clip 1
end to the terminal and touch the other end to batt.
post. With everything off,(remove bulb on hood) key
in your pocket, see if test light comes on.
If it comes on you have a draw. pull 1 fuse at a time
(remove+replace)until light goes out.When it goes out
the last fuse you pulled is for the circut with the draw.
If you have any aftermarket electronics radio/alarm/ or
remote starter check them 1st.
Also most auto parts stores napa/advance/or autozone will test your battery and alternator free.
Hope this helps. Good luck

Battery problem

testing for a draw is fairly easily done ....simply disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and connect the clamp end of a test light to the post and the other end to the cable ...if there is a draw it should light up

locate the fuse panel and 1 by 1 pull the fuses until the light goes out when the light goes out simply read the # and next to it it should read what it operates power to

i am going to guess either-> glove-box , trunk light ...i am sure you have looked during the night time the interior light is out as well as the light under the hood as you should see if it was lit up correct /...therefore if you discover i am correct if it be the glove box an adjustment can be made to allow a closed connection and it should be fairly clear how by looking the situation over how to adjust it ,,if on the other hand it is the door switch or trunk light same thing adjustments are easily made .

...if you need any further assistance i am more than happy ta help you

Battery keeps draining

have the battery tested, many times when u run the battery dead it ruins the battery, if the battery was good u should have been able to listen to the radio for at least 4 hours and still start the car, chances are the battery is no good. Kragen auto and others do this for free. Never assume u have a drain until all other poss are checked. Let me know what u find, I am fairly sure the battery will test bad.

Repalced battery as old one had dead cell the new battery was fitted and went flat have replaced starter and alt but still get flat battery have check all fuses and all are in woking order and to stage...

check the parasitic draw on the battery. If the draw is greater than 40 ma, something is causing the battery to go flat before it should. Recommend you monitor parasitic draw using a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) and unplug one fuse at a time until you discover which circuit is draining the battery.

I had a voltage regualtor sticking in an alternator once that done the same thing. The alt worked fine but the reg would stick causing a dead battery try unplugging the alt. when the car is idle and see if the problem goes away

Something that is drawing to cause battery to go dead

Tell him to use his test light between + battery connection & battery post +, and start pulling fuses one by one. When you find the right fused circuit causing the drain, light will dim or go out. Don't forget, radio has a small constant draw for memory.

2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL -intermittent dead battery

The wiper should not move regardless of battery change as the wiper switch should have isolated it.It seems to be the only ,as you say,strange thing and would be inclined to believe that that is the probable cause of your fault.Do like your testing method and hope you track the fault down.Good luck and happy new year.
