Question about Easy Quick Auto Jumper Recharges Vehicle Battery Without Jumper Cables

1 Answer

What should I check to figure out the reason my batteries are getting drained ?

At noon the truck started and ran just fine, turned it off, then went to start it at 3:00 p.m. and nothing. The batteries have been replaced and so has the altenator.

    All of a sudden my 2001 Chevy 2500 HD Duramax 6.6 Turbo Diesel, 4 x4, Crew Cab Truck started draining the batteries with the truck turned off. At noon the truck started and ran just fine, turned it off, then went to start it at 3:00 p.m. and nothing. Now everytime I stop I have to disconnect both batteries if I want the truck to be able to start again. The batteries have been replaced and so has the altenator. When the batteries are first connected and the key/ignition is put in the run position the wait to start light comes on, then when wait to start light goes out I start it up no problem. All of the test dummy lights on the on the dash come on and go off like they are supposed to do. The instrument panel lights work, oil gauge works, speedometer works, the ampmeter works. The motor temp gauge, trans temp gauge, and fuel gauge do not work. When I turn the headlights on bright, the brights work but the bright light indicator light on the dash does not. Sometimes when I am connecting the first battery I think that I hear a click, but I'm not sure where from and I don't know where to check.

    you have an open circuit somewhere that is draining the batteries there is a multi plug behind dash check its not wet and all the pins are ok the click you here could be glow plug relay staying open unplug it after you have started truck leave it out when you turn off and see if you still have problem some have a relay that controls a feed relay it may be that hope this helps

It sure sounds like you have a short somewhere, and BTW, good info. Not many people give much info, and without that you are shooting in the dark. The fact that several of your gauges don't work is very telling. Have you had like a hitch or new aux. fuel tank put on recently? Sometimes people don't watch when they install such items and they pinch wires and the problem doesn't show up for a while. As the insulation on the pinched wires sometimes take a while to wear through. Also I hope you are just taking off the negative(black) battery connections. You should always hook the positive first, then the negative. And with the key off you should not get any arcing/crackling sound from the connection when you hook it back up. If you do(which I'll bet you do) it means there is some circuit that is shorted or a relay is closed when it's not supposed to be. It's all about finding out what is hard wired(that means it's not wired through the key switch, it has the potential to be on all the time, but won't draw any current if the insulation in the wiring is ok, and the truck is off). Electrical probs are the worst. good luck.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan. It ran fine that morning when I took my husband to work. That after noon I went to pick him up and it wouldn't crank. It starts but won't crank. Please help.


Hi Crystal:
My understanding:
"Crank" means turn over under the power of the starter.
"start" means it starts running
If your vehicle will not "crank" I would think that means you may have a bad battery, terminal, or connection, or ignition switch, or solenoid, or starter.
If your vehicle will not start, I would be thinking that it is cranking but won't run, so I would be looking for a spark (ignition) problem, or a fuel delivery problem.
Hope this helps.

2002 chevy trail blazer,ran fine,went to work then at noon it would not start. changed fuel pump,crank sensor,cam sensor,checked compressionand spark at coils,still no start


You threw a lot of parts and money at that thing guessing what MAY be wrong with it. Check any fuses that may be marked start,ign,etc. Do you have spark? The engine size would alos help.

Battery drains and idle problems when jumped. 2002 Jeep Liberty


I would look at the fuses and fuseable links, and check the output of the alternator. If you disconnect the battery you can check the battery for a dead cell, and check the major circuits for a draw with everything turned off.

The car won't start after being turned off for a while. We replaced the battery already and now the new battery went dead. Something is draining the battery down to nothing, but we can't figure out what.

I filled the gas tank up on Sunday and went to get back in and crank it and it wouldn't start. I had to get it jumped off. On Monday it started and ran fine. On Tuesday, I went to start it to go to work...


When your car battery goes dead for no apparent reason, Occasionally something is drawing power that’s not of your doing. This is a parasitic draw, and it can cause the same result as leaving the headlights on. To read more on this type of battery drain please visit my blog

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Battery draining completely within 15 miles of driving


I had the same problem on my NEW Forester, dealer told me to check the litttle switch set far down on the top of the steering column. I had accidently turned it on while cleaning the car. It turns on some tiny lights that are used more in Japan and not easily noticed unless you are looking for them. Sure enough, that is what caused my battery to drain multiple times.

Not sure if it helps but it's worth checking just in case.
