1998 ford contour battery drains over night and wipers come on when jumping

Check for battery drain with wiper fuse/relay pulled and with it re-installed. Sounds like the multi-switch or wiper switch has a bad wire or shorted circuit.
Any garage can check for a power drain very easily. don-ohio (:^)

Why do Rascal Scooters have a common problem with killing batteries? I have a 625 that has killed 3 sets of batteries. I have read it is common. Help, you guys/girls are the best,

You must have some kind of circuit that stays on to drain the batteries. You need to find out what is still turned on with
the key off.
As a suggestion, lift one of the battery leads (these should be connected in series for 24volt operation). With one of
the battery leads to the other battery, or lead to the controller disconnected, temporarily connect the automotive 1156) signal light bulb in series between the battery post and the original battery lead.

If the light bulb glows red or brighter, you have something draining the batteries with the KEY OFF, and you may need to unplug disconnect the controller, or controller relay to see if the light bulb stops glowing, which may help to locate the area of what is causing the short.
Good luck finding wiring diagrams. it seems that the scooter
industry wants to protect it's dealers, and only they seem to
have wiring diagrams.

My ford f150 has a new battery and starts fine all day untill it sits all night then its dead

Someone will need to pull the fuses and disconnect the major electrical components until you find the power drain. You use a meter or test light to watch the battery voltage. It could be anything from a stuck relay, to a short in the wiring.

Zune 120GB Battery(?) Issue

Send it in to Microsoft and they will be able to fix it for you. Otherwise, I'm sure there are online kits on how to replace the battery (but I fear they can probably get pretty messy just like phone repairs and such). Microsoft should be able to whip a new battery in there quickly.

Car battery keeps dying

Myguess is that you have an electrical short which is causing a drain on the battery. The way to check this is to get a 12 v test light. Unhook the negative side of the battery. Hook the test light up between the negative battery post and the battery cable. If the light comes on, You have a short/drain. To find where the short is, you leave the test light hooked up. Then you start pulling fuses until the light goes out. However, your car stereo needs to be completely unhooked before you do this test because most stereos have a constant electrical source so that the clock stays accurate and the memory stays active so your programed stations don't get lost.

240z battery drain

Have you confirmed by going out to the car at night that none of the interior lights or lighted visor lights truck or hood lights are staying on? That is by far the most common cause of a battery drain. Other less common cause is a defective alternator rectifier diode Disconnect the battery overnight as well to confirm you don't have a shorted battery cell, that to will run the battery down, it is called an internal drain. Also make sure the top of the battery is clean of any acid.

Try unpluging the field connector from the alternator after you shut it off for the night, the internal regulator may be shorted draining the power from the battery.

BATTERY GOES COMPLETLY DEAD AFTER THE CAR SITS OVER NIGHT.I rebult the alt.and replaced the battery with a new one. What do i check for

parasitic drain. a drain on the battery when everything is supposed to be off. usually a short in a circuit. disconnect negative battery terminal. unplug hood light. connect cheap test light between unplugged neg cable and neg post on battery. if parasitic drain exists light will be on. unplug fuses one at a time (and plug back in) until light goes off. that is the circuit with the drain. plug back in fuse. unplug components in that circuit until light goes off. that is the faulty component. replace. retest.

2002 VW Jetta won't start

Check the battery out put to see if it is at least 12.25 volts(may need to have it load checked).If the battery checks good,remove battery cables and clean them real shiney,also the battery terminals,and replace them back on the battery,WARNING,DO NOT DISCONNET THE BATTERY WITHOUT PLUGING A 12 VOLT POWER SOURSE INTO THE CIGARET LIGHTER PLUG,OR EQUAL.If you do not plug in a power sourse to the car,the computer will loose all it`s memory,and will have to go to the dealer to be reflashed.
