Make sure the dash panel dimmer switch did not get turned on accidentally. Open and close all the car doors securely. The next thing you could do is locate the fuse box and remove the fuse. You could also call the rental place and ask them if they have any suggestions.

It's a 07 Hyundai Accent. If it was the alternator, when you start the car and pull the battery cable the car should shut off but it don't. What can it be that draining my battery over night.


an alternator that is charging will keep the engine running if the battery is removed
removing a battery lead when the alternator is running is a bad idea as it can cause diode failures in the rectifier and other possible electronic failures

you have reasons such as bad battery cells, boot light still on , glove box light still on, interior light still on, relays nor working properly and still drawing current, faulty ECM, alternator diode failed

Where is the dome light fuse?


The dome light fuse will be in the fuse box, usually located in the glove box or under the dash. The owners manual will tell you which fuse it is in the box.

2005 Jeep liberty dome lights do not come on when doors open and dash lights are dimmed


that's programmable on all cars.
old cars, a lever on Dome lamp or others on the HL stalk a mode.
HL = head lamps
my new car no light levers.
IT has a party mode, cute how now that old feature for 100 years
gets a name. PARTY, as all doors open for tail gate party and no light drain on battery. (death) my 08 JK has that.(wrangler)

all this is in the operators manual. in the glove box.
page 94 in mine (word not in index.party)
quote
When a door is open and the interior lights are on,
rotating the dimmer control all the way down to the OFF
detent will cause all the interior lights to go out. This is
also known as the "Party mode" because it allows the
doors to stay open for extended periods of time without
discharging the vehicle's battery." unquote, RTM?

im sure its in your book but a different page,
i got the PDF for my car, (all of them) and can search any key word.
a blessing that is....

Dome light bulb replace


There sometime is 2 fuse boxes on cars, one under the hood, and one inside the car somewhere. Check both boxes, make sure all the fuses are not blown, then if everything is good try replacing the switch in the door and/or on the dome light itself.

1993 regal custom new battery installed 3 weeks ago or so car sat for 2 weeks now car is dead had charging system checked with new battery all ok


You have something draining your battery when the vehicle is off. Connect an ammeter to see what amperage is drawn when the vehicle is at rest and off (with the doors closed so that you don't read the draew from the dome/courtesy lights). Begin pulling and replacing fuses one at a time to determine which circuit is causing the abnormal current flow then troubleshoot that circuit. Many times the fault can be traced to a glove box, trunk or underhood light that does not shut off.

more than likely it is the headlight switch. All of the lights work off from it. My dads 97 chev would shut off all the lights after shutting the door. Then you would come back later and the interor lights would be on again and run the battery down.

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
