Battery will be drained down/or goes dead setting

This problem is when everything is off,and sets a day or two.
alternater checked it is fine had a old battery so i just bought a new one ,but did the same to it making it go down.
I had it checked and the guy told me it was the radio disconnected every wire on it and taped the wires all up. but that did not solve the problem.went back then he found a draw ,said it was maybe the radio amplifire,if it has one it is a factory one,said it also had the gage cluster on the fuse plus a body modgle. does this sound right??
where would the body modgle be located at,plus where would the radio amp be located at if it has one,and where and how do i check the cluster. pulled the fuse and his test showed it was in those parts.
Or is there something else it could be??
this problem is on my 1998 jeep grand cherokee laredo
thanks for your help. plus is there a site i can get a free wiring diagramof the jeep??

    I have the exact problem with my 1998 grand cherokee except the mechanic told me it could be the body control module, in which case if it is i need find one with the exact number thats on the existing one or it wont work one number off it wont work. I'm on my 3rd battery with this jeep in the last 18 months. We're checking all the fuses to see if we can find a simple solution. About the amplifier in your jeep it might be under the back seat that where i found mine haven't disconnected it yet but will give it a try. Good Luck

Interior Dash Lights dim, brake & battery warning lights flash on and off.

Sounds like your alternater, get a multimeter set it to volts start the car then check the battery is getting 14 or over volts from the alternater to the battery , if your getting less than that it's not putting enough volts back to the battery to run the car with good luck colin

Battery keeps going dead

Does it go dead after sitting for a few hours? Once started and driven for several miles will it restart if the engine is shutoff? If the battery goes dead only after sitting for a while with the engine off, you probably have a bulb or some accessory that is draining the battery.

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?

First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

I changed the out side regulator on my ford econoline E150,had the alternater checked and it's what could make it stick when i'm trying to start draines the battery down when it dont turn...

Sounds like the starter is probably fried, and draining the battery. I assume the battery is good? If you aren't sure, try disconnecting the battery for the night, and see if it goes dead

1999 toyota battery keeps going down with new alternater this makes 2 alternaters and batteries

The most likely cause if you have changed batteries and replaced the alternator is that you have something that is an electrical drw when the car is shut off.

I assume the battery goes down while the car is sitting?

If it goes down when you are driving, it is likely a different problem.

If you don't have a multimeter to check for current draw when everything is shut off, an easy test to remove the negative battery cable and let it set the time it takes to discharge.

Then hook it back up and see if you have a full battery. If it doesn't go down with the batteryt cable disconnected, you either have a short somewhere or there is something left on (like a glove compartment or trunk light) that is draining the battery.

I assume you checked for the obvious things like brake lights staying on when the car is shut off (brake light switch problem).

My renault megane scenic only starts some days and others it is completely dead, I charge up the battery and it's fine for a few days and the dies again, got a new battery and the alternater is fine.

you may have a problem with the alternator sometimes not charging,may test okay sometimes, take a good look at the alternator and also make sure nothing is staying on, like inside lights, glove box light or brake lights, keep an eye on these things when parking the car for the day,something may be draining the battery down slowly.
