Possible diode pack in Alternator bad, dome light left on, aftermarket stereo equipment left on or installed incorrectly, aftermarket alarm system faulty, ignition switch faulty lastly an internal short in some other sysytem. Must pull fuses one at a time while using a volt meter or test light to islolate the problem.

Have a 2009 Saab 9.7x4,2i starter good alternater good but battery dies over night


Usual culprit is boot (Trunk) light.If not, try disconnecting battery and if a spark jumps as you take the lead off it shows there is a power drain. If no power drain it points to a faulty battery.

My ford f150 has a new battery and starts fine all day untill it sits all night then its dead


Someone will need to pull the fuses and disconnect the major electrical components until you find the power drain. You use a meter or test light to watch the battery voltage. It could be anything from a stuck relay, to a short in the wiring.

40 amp fuse labeled 'Fuse Block' is causing a 3.5 amp parasitic draw and draining battery


??? are you certain its that ??? that fuse will most likely control all the power in the fuse box and the 3.5 amp you see that's called the parasitic draw will most likely be that of the cars computer..

3.5 amp wont drain a battery over night nor in a week i'm assuming you have at least a 500CCA battery here.

battery's don't drain like that, they do loose power once they have a bad cell, or the battery water is low. I'm assuming you had it tested here by a technician from the battery shop and that's what they told you and its a new battery or relatively new..

to test this your self you can take the battery out of the vehicle and leave it outside over night, you will see the power is drained out and it wasn't connected to anything. Thats because of the bad cell..

To prove it to them, Remove the caps If its not a sealed maintenance free one and you will see bubble coming out of the bad cell once the car is idling.. (don't inhale the fumes or let it get in your eyes)

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

Something is draining my battery at night. it has


if the alternator is going bad it will cause that check to see if it is charging or not.The best thing to do would be to remove it and have it bench tested and also take your battery in at the same time and have it checked at the same time it could have suffered damage as well

03 clk 200 .battery is run down over night, but not every night. new front sam , new rear sam. new battery. put amp meater on no drain.


there must be somekind of amp draw or else you shouldnt be having any problems,this may sound wierd,and also may be a bit of work,try disconnecting the alternator for a night and see if your problem goes away,ive run across this a couple of times,also,seat control modules are known to cause draw problems in c and clk classes
