Either you have an open wire somewhere that needs to be taped off, or your leaving something on. ALSO your alternator could be overcharging your battery B/C your voltage regulator is out on your alternator. I bet thats what your problem is. To fix, you have to tear your alternator apart, and replace the regulator in it, or just replace the alternator itself. Hope this helps, James Booth Please Rate This :)

New battery keeps going dead when car shut off overnight


Sounds like a slow drain - like a dome light or short in the wiring.
If the battery stays charged when it is disconnected, you'll have to check for a power drain in the car.

I have a slow drain on my car battery. I puller


Use a 12volt test light between the positive battery post and the positive cable with the positive cable disconnected from the battery.
Keep key off.
You will see the test light "light" with any drain.

Any drain showing a dim test light is..... OK
Any drain showing a bright light is.....BAD

Disconnect items (fuses) one at a time and watch the light.
Keep the doors closed....the inside dome light is a drain with the door open!
After fuses are checked....disconnect the alt if needed and watch the light.
Keep going until you get rid of the bright light.

Battery keeps draining new battery and alternaltor


Sounds like an alternator. When it goes bad, your car is forced to run off of the battery , which wont last long depending on what all you have running .
The alternator keeps your battery charged after your car starts.
Try replacing the alternator and let me know if you have any more problems.
