Have you disconnected all accessories in the car (phone charges, GPS and aftermarket accessories)? A 7 amp draw is pretty low and I have had cars with some aftermarket goodie that caused a low draw like that.

98 Jimmy has a power draw it kills the battery within 12 hrs if you pull the 50 amp fuse for the int batt draw goes away any ideas


Yes Steve I do , that fuse supply's power to the I/P fuse block inside the vehicle . It powers AUX/PWR fuse #13 -20amp , RDO/BATT fuse #19 - 15amp ,MIR/LKS fuse #7 - 5amp , CTSY/LP fuse #8 - 15 amp , CIGAR/LTR fuse #2 15 amp , PWR/LKS fuse #14 15 amp , HDLP/SW fuse #1 - 10amp .Do you know where the I/P fuse block is ? You would need to do a parasitic draw test ! This involves hooking up a amp meter in series with the negative battery post an negative battery cable . Pulling each one of these fuses till the battery draw stops ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy check out Eric the car guy's video on the subject !

I HAVE A 1985 Buick LaSabre something is making my battery go dead


You need to check amp draw, with everything off, usually not even a tenth of an amp. If too much draw, pull/replace fuses one at a time, When you pull the fuse on the faulty circuit the excess drain goes away. Then you check everything on that circuit.

Make sure no lights left on anywhere, interior--under the hood--in the trunk, everywhere. Best time to check is in the dark.


Also, check your charging system. Sometimes a faulty alternator can let the battery drain back through the alternator, not to mention not charging.

My 2000 Ford Expedition battery keeps going dead. We took it to a advance auto parts store and they tested it and said that is using 4 volts even without the key in the switch. What could be our problem ?


you have a draw on the system that you will have to find out what in the car is causing it,to do this with a meter hooked up to check for a draw and the doors closed remove all fuses until the draw goes away.when the draw is gone the same time the fuse is pulled that is the circuit you will have to check for the draw.

My expedition wont even try to turn over and the odometer just has dashes on it just put a new battery in last week the outside temp comes on then goes to dashes


Try your headlights. If they are real dim or don't come on at all, the battery is dead. Since the battery is new, I would think the alternator is not charging the battery while the engine is running, You can have the alternator checked,

I have about a 6 amp drain on my Battery at all times and after a few weeks my battery discharges to the point it won't even click the starter. My engine light is lit up on the dash also, I had a handheld...


A 6 amp draw would be enough to drain the battery overnight. are you sure its not lower?

The easiest way to find a draw is to start removing fuses one at a time until the draw goes away making sure to replace the fuse before moving onto the next so you don't end up with a pile of fuses that you don't know where they go. Once you have narrowed down the fuse that eliminates the draw you can then start to focus on all the devices that circuit powers up.

Typically you would want to see a draw of less than .050 amps and in your situation you should see less that .030 amps or even less after the draw is gone.

Post back after your find out what fuse eliminates the draw and I'll do my best to get you some more info on that circuit.

I have a 3.34 amp drain while the grand marquis is turned off.. resulting in brand new dead batteries.... need to know how to find the drain. please and thank you.


the easiest way to start is to pull each fuse one at a time and see if the draw goes away. if it doesn't than reinstall that fuse and pull the next. Repeat this process until the draw goes away. Once you know what fuse stops the draw you can figure out what that fuse powers up and move on to systematically disconnecting each one of those components until the draw goes away.

Before I do anything with a draw I like to check things like under hood lights, glove box lights, and trunk lights to make sure they are turning of when they are supposed to.

When you figure out what fuse stops the draw post a reply and I'll be more than happy to assist you on the components that fuse protects.

Over night the battery is dead


Put a 12v test light between the positive terminal and the battery cable.If the light is bright the draw is to much.A dim light is fine.if the light is bright,plug one fuse at a time until light dims.DO NOT cause a draw by leaving a door open etc while testing.DO NOT try and start the car or turn the key on during this test.Once you have found the fuse that causes the most draw,if you want to save $ you can just pull this fuse overnight or wire that circuit with a relay to unpower it when the vehicle is switched off.

Battery goes dead on 2004 pacifica


There is obviously a draw from somewhere, and if your dealer doesn't have a mechanic who knows how to narrow it down to the circuit causing the problem, then I'd question there ability. With that said, when all else fails, you simply remove negative connection off battery first, then positive. Take a 12 volt test light & secure one end to the + clamp or connector, and the other end to the battery+ post. Now connect your negative back up to the battery as it was. If that test light, lights up, there is a draw. It will be brighter, the more draw there is. Your going to have some, just from your radio memory alone, but now comes the fun part. All you do is pull the fuses one at a time, if light goes out, or dim's you've found a draw. When you have a real hard one to narrow down, you make sure you know where they all go back to, whether by your map at fuse box, or your own notes, and you pull them all out, and light should go out for sure, if not, there is another circuit or panel, or relay drawing the current. If it goes out, you start putting them back in one at a time, and when the light comes back on bright, you found the circuit. Mark that one down, pull the fuse back out, light off, now do the rest that you haven't checked yet, just to see if there is more than one draw causing the problem, if there is, mark it down, pull it out & continue on until all done. Now you/they narrowed it down or isolated the circuit causing the problem.
