A short circuit in the electrical system, possibly due to damage to the wiring harness, sometimes caused by rodents. This could also be caused by aftermarket modifications to the electrical system. If the battery dies overnight when not connected to the bike, the battery is defective and needs to be replaced. If the battery does not maintain its voltage under load, it needs to be replaced.

On my 1998 olds aurora, lights are coming on blinking in the middle of the night;killing the battery; have to disconnect battery every night


Your head light switch is the only thing that is capable of turning your head lights on, so I would replace it ! On the other hand you could have a mouse living in the dash, that has chewed through some wiring and at night when it is active it causes a short to turn the lights on. But I would would start with the switch lol

Have the battery load tested, it may have an internal draw that kills it. Autozone and others do this load test for free.

I have a 1993 honda accord, just bought new battery,when i let it sit over night car wont start have to jump it off, something is killing my power


I just did this repair 2 weeks ago. Hope it is the same for you. It turned out to be the ignition switch. Not the actual tumbler that you insert your key in, but the switch mounted to it from behind. The part is $40. at Autozone. Remove the lower plastic steering column cover. Remove the plastic knee panel. You will see it screwed onto the the key column. It's most always white. It may function properly but inside this little switch are many contact points that when they fail, cause power to draw from your battery. For instance, you'll be able to turn your radio on and run your windows down even after you remove the key.

The heater wasnt working and it connected to the battery but it kill the battery every night


Are you sure it is the heater that is draining the battery? If you are sure it is the heater blower that is causing the problem try pulling the heater relay, let it sit over night and check the battery. If it starts then either troubleshoot the heater problem further or leave the relay out...good luck!

Lights killing battery


HAVE YOUR MECHANIC CHECK THE FUSEABLE LINK BY THE SOLENOID. IF THIS LINK IS BURNED THE ALTERNATOR CAN NOT SEND CURRENT BACK TO THE BATTERY. IF ONLY PARTIALLY BURNED IT MAY SEND CURRENT, BUT NOT FULL CURRENT TO KEEP UP WITH THE DEMANDS THE HEADLIGHTS PLACE ON THE BATTERY.
