The battery is easily drain even i replaced it an new battery, what is the posible problem of my vespa lx 150 ie? Ty

Many answers you need a multimeter or ammeter to measure the quiescent current drawn (power used when nothing turned on)

Set it on the 10a scale and measure the current drawn ,put the leads in series with the battery feed wire.

Causes could be a faulty regulator pack or a short on the stator of the generator,a scuffed cable shorting to earth ,(usually around the brake light switch) or a faulty switch causing a lamp to light continuously . I could go on but that should give you a starting point.
good luck

Inverter negative cable smokes

Make sure the connections to the batteries are clean and tight and cables are clamped adequately. Also make sure the wire is of adequate gauge to handle 100 amps minimum. If you are using only 12 gauge wire for any distance, that is too small for 12 volts.

The current being drawn at 900 Watts is 75 amps on 12 volts not counting the draw for the inverter operation.

My car has been at the dealer in Hobart for 4 months whith some type of current draw. Mitsubishi seem to have no idea how to fix. Please help!

If you have unexplained current draw, the best way to troubleshoot is with an accurate clamp on amp meter. Then you pull the fuses - all of them - and then put one fuse in at a time and write down what the reading is. When you find the item that is drawing far more current than what it should then you have a starting point.

It is a long drawn out operation and takes an accurate fuse box diagram with fuse sizes, but it does allow you to pin down unexplained current draw problems.

What is the power load for this model? Amps? Thanks.

You don't sya make and model but the easiest way to find out is to look on the production/serial number label for the exact details.
If you need the current drawn, divide the total Wattage drawn by your mains voltage and that will give you the current in Amps.
Hope that helps.

The fan only kicks in when a threshold current is drawn by the system. under normal operation it is not turning. Crank up the volume and you'll notice the fan fires. You wouldn't notice this since the system is so friggin loud!!

Red button breaker on oil burner motor requires reset regularly. It may run for several days or less. Aero Water Heater

That style of Reset/Overload button is made using a Bi-metallic spring type disk so that when it gets hot from excess current being drawn by the motor the disk shape changes and it goes open circuit to prevent the motor from burning out.. After several minutes it will cool down enough to be pushed and reset as the spring disk reverts to its original shape with a click and closes the circuit to allow the motor to start operating.
The main reasons for excess current being drawn by the motor are the mains supply voltage being lower than required for normal operation and/or the motor is not running at rated RPM due to the drag of worn bearings or other factors of the applied load making the motor run slow.
Sometimes, due to the current through the reset switch being close to its tripping point, can cause the spring tension to weaken and develop the annoying tripping that you are experiencing.
You should be able to dismantle the motor and replace the reset button with one of the same type and current rating which should solve the problem once you are sure that the other factors initially described as possible fault conditions have been eliminated asthe cause of the tripping.

Why cigarette lighter does not work?

80 Series cig lighters have a fuse and a thermal couple, as do most cig lighters. The fuse will blow if too much current is drawn but if an acceptable but high current is drawn for a long period the thermal couple may blow.
Note: the thermal couple can not be replaced like a fuse.

Flat battery

Replace that fuse and start by removing fuses one by one from block, till draw disappears. Then, check that system for problems.
Don't forget: your alternator will always show up as a small draw.
Check accessories such as glovebox light first... Often, if box is not closing properly, it will kill the battery in a few days. Same goes for interior light delay!
