95 f 150 battery power drains with everything turned off what's wrong?

You have a parasitic draw on the electrical system causing the drain. You will need a amp meter hooked in series with the battery that detects amp/milliamp draw to see how much current is being drawn with the vehicle shut off and diagnose from there. Usually involves pulling fuses one at a time and watching the meter to see what fuse lowers/eliminates the draw and then finding out what the fuse controls to isolate the source of the draw

Change antifreeze cant find petcock chevy impala 2006

Some vehicles don't have one so you will need to draw the coolant out through the radiator or remove the lower hose to drain it.

Water leaking than freezing on floor of lower draw under ice maker in subzero 700tf freezer

If cubes are very large the ice maker may be overfilling and need the fill adjusted to allow less water into the maker. Otherwise check the fill tube (runs from the back wall to ice maker) for loose connections or cracked tubing. (In this instance the cubes would be smaller than usual.) If neither of these is the source, then look up to the highest point of ice (water flows downhill) for the origin. Suspect a stopped up defrost drain. Thaw and clear ice, then clear drain tube (DO NOT use a wire for this) with warm water and a turkey baster. Once water is flowing through tube and into drain pan under the unit the problem should be solved.

How to drain radiator

trouble is theres so many possible. feel at the lower tank, could face the engine, away to the left or right, could be on the end(s) or point down with a drain tube. suggest getting a good small flashlight, and remove cover underneath radiator area for access. they change often during production. takes less time to find by feel or inspection.

Could be a number of things, most common would be that your battery is worn out. Have it checked first. Otherwise you could have excessive switch OFF drain for example if you have a defective voltage rectifier/regulator that is shorting to ground and draining the batery when the switch is OFF This can be checked by removing the main fuse and seeing if the battery still drains but of course if you do this any other battery drain will also be stopped so if you do this and the battery still drains down the battery is likely the problem. Excessive battery switch off drain can be checked with what is called a milliamp draw test. It is done by:

As a preliminary check ensure that all accessories are wired so that they will not stay on when the ignition is off and the switch is not in the ACCESSORY position because if they are not so connected the drain will eventually fully drain the battery. A battery static draw test can be checked for by connecting an ammeter in series between the negative battery terminal and the battery.

A regulator will draw 0.5 milliamperes; a non-security system TSM will draw 0.5 milliamperes; a disarmed TSSM will draw 0.5 milliamperes; and an armed TSSM will draw 3.0 milliamperes; and also a TSM/TSSM will continue to draw 16-25 mA for 30 seconds after the ignition is turned OFF so any disruption and reconnection of battery power, such as disconnecting the battery to place a meter in series, will cause a TSM/TSSM to draw 16-25 mA for 30 seconds after the ammeter is connected in series with the battery negative cable and post. SO, with that all in mind, connect an ammeter in series between the negative battery terminal and the battery negative post and then thusly arranged the test will pick up and display, among other draws, any regulator current drain. THEN with ignition key switch turned to OFF and all lights and accessories also OFF observe the amperage reading and add the regulator draw to the appropriate value for the TSM/TSSM and other allowable system draws, IF ANY, and if the sum is less than the reading on the ammeter, the draw is within limits. A higher reading indicates excessive current draw and any and all accessories must be considered and checked for excessive drain by disconnecting/pulling fuses one by one and observing for any change in the current draw reading. The regulator must also be removed from the circuitry to be sure that it is not the cause of excessive current draw. Also make sure that the battery case is clean and dry as if it is not a surface discharge condition could be present.

I have a jetta gls is a 2.0 year 2000 when u try to start the car it looks Like their is no power it gets drain lower. And lower I took the battery and the altenator to have them check and their goobehat...

Have a 'starter draw test' performed. This should check the Amps draw the starter is pulling and the tech' performing the test will know if Amp draw is excessive. 400 and above Amps would indicate starter is bad.

Possible the negative ground strap is loose or burnt. It suffers from battery acid corrosion.

I have about a 6 amp drain on my Battery at all times and after a few weeks my battery discharges to the point it won't even click the starter. My engine light is lit up on the dash also, I had a handheld...

A 6 amp draw would be enough to drain the battery overnight. are you sure its not lower?

The easiest way to find a draw is to start removing fuses one at a time until the draw goes away making sure to replace the fuse before moving onto the next so you don't end up with a pile of fuses that you don't know where they go. Once you have narrowed down the fuse that eliminates the draw you can then start to focus on all the devices that circuit powers up.

Typically you would want to see a draw of less than .050 amps and in your situation you should see less that .030 amps or even less after the draw is gone.

Post back after your find out what fuse eliminates the draw and I'll do my best to get you some more info on that circuit.

Battery is new. I turn the key and nothing comes on. I can jump it off and an hour later it wont start again

take the battery in to have it tested it may be defective. if the battery tests ok your alternator isn't charging. if you have a volt meter , your battery voltage should be no lower than 12.5 volts dc and with the motor running you should see no lower than 13.5 volts dc with everything turned on (lights, ac on fan on high) if the voltage drops below that your alternator is bad.

1988 toyota 4runners battery drains within 1 week. Cannot locate the short? Suggestions on how to measure the leakage and locate the short.

get a amp meter. remove battery cable, hook up meter inline. with key off measure drain. you prabably have a 1/2 amp or more draw. start pulling fuses till yo find the one that lowers it to almost nothing. If you find no draw then a battery can test good and still loose a charge over a time. Unhook the battery next time and if its dead unhooked you will know

Why does my Fisher and Paykel DD605SS stalls midway through wash cycle? I'm not sure if the following incidents are related but my Fisher and Paykel DD605ss now stalls part way through the wash cycle. A few nights ago I loaded the dishwasher hit timer and left it to run in the wee small hours. When I got up the next morning the circuit breaker had tripped on the circuit with the dishwasher. Once I reset the circuit breaker I started the dishwasher. I almost always run it on Normal (Eco) 154 minutes. It ran and then started beeping which I presumed was it finished. It continued to beep and was displaying an E4 error. After searching the E4 error I took the most popular solution and unplugged the machine and left it without power for about 10 minutes. After that plugged it back in and hit the start button again. It seemed to run well and when I walked into the kitchen late in the cycle it was displaying 28 minutes to go with a scrubbing brush flashing in the LCD. I left it alone and went about my life and returned to the kitchen about an hour later and it was still on 28 minutes to go. I hit pause and had a look, there was water and foam in the bottom of the draw. I took the wet plates out and hit the rinse option to see if it was a pump problem. The rinse option ran and the draw was almost empty. I then took the rack etc out of the raw and cleaned it all out. There was a little gunk but not much. I put a light load of dishes in the machine and ran it on the Normal wash mode. It started up and made all the right noises so I left it. I came back to the kitchen and it was stuck on 94 minutes with the flashing scrubbing brush. I paused it, took the dishes out and again ran the Rinse option which drained the draw. So my question is are the three events linked? Circuit breaker tripping, E4 error and random stoppages during the wash cycle?
