Good Evening, I am sorry to hear you have a battery draw however the voltage and amperage draw should be very low if the radio is installed properly. I have seen seat switches and lock switches that get stuck create a draw to kill a battery. I am sure you checked to make sure all your interior lights are off at night, so the next logical step is to get a test light and disconnect the positive battery cable. Place the test light between the battery and the cable end and it will light up with a draw. Then go through and pull fuses out one by one until the light goes out. 1 or 2 fuses may do it. I would check the wiring on the radio to be sure first, maybe even unplug it overnight to see if that is your problem for sure without disabling the battery fuse. Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey

Why wont radio turn off?


This often happens when people diy aftermarket stereo installation. Aftermarket stereos require both accessory and hot wires, while many auto wiring harnesses provide only hot leads. You must add an accessory wire from the fuse box to the stereo to prevent the battery from draining. If you are up to doing that, I can provide instructions.

Battery drain, fuse #12 in 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


On the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee the # 15 fuse is the IOD circuit. (Ignition Off Drain) The # 12 fuse is the power windows. Both fuses are 50 amp.

This IOD fuse #15 powers the distribution box that contains the 50 amp fuse. Pull each fuse in the under hood.

Pull each fuse in the under dash. Check for on the passenger side floor is an additional fuse panel.

Before going to far suggest at night checking for any lights lit. The draw is about right for a small light bulb.

Typical draw for parked car is around 100 milliamps

Suggest that you disconnect power to the car for several minutes. Reconnect the battery. The object is to reset the body electronics module.

If the computers in the modules get a glitch they can cause a drain. By cycling the power, disconnecting battery, they will reset to factory settings. Reported it can take up to 20 minutes for the circuits to drain before you can reset!.

the following web site does a great job of explaining all that is going on. What appears to be simple to troubleshoot is not so easy. He comments about delay before sleep are important. Testing after overnight may result in a different drain rate. Make sure that your battery meets specifications. In 2000 the drain rate may be relatively high and the reserve capacity of your battery low.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has a new battery but won't start. When I try to jump start it, it just makes a clicking sound but won't start.


Most likely you have a bad connection somewhere. Trace the battery cables and clean/tighten all terminals or try jumping to a different lug. You might also try removing the starter and jumping directly to the starter to verify that it is good.

The battery on my Jeep Grand Cherokee goes completely dead parked overnite. The battery and alternator are new and check out good at the parts store. I sometimes hear a faint clicking sound even when the...


Obviously you have a current draw from somewhere, and one of the easiest ways to find it, is to hook a 12 volt test light between your + battery terminal, and your + battery clamp. Just remove positive clamp, have one end of test light hooked to clamp, and the other attached to post of battery. As long as test light is bright, it's showing a draw. Then start pulling fuses from the circuits that you suspect may be causing the draw, like alarm system, door locks, etc. When the light dims or goes out when fuse is pulled, you found the circuit causing the draw, or one of the draws. Keep in mind the memory on your stereo will cause a slight draw for sure.

Something seems to drain the battery when the Jeep is parked not running


Hi there,

This response contains troubleshooting procedures designed to locate the cause of an overnight power drain resulting in a dead battery, It assumes the charging system is working.

The first (and easiest) test I run is on the battery.

When you are done using it for the evening, pull the Negative battery cable.

In the morning, re-connect it. If it's dead again, the battery needs replacement.

If it starts, the battery is ok. It's time to look for the power drain.

With the ignition off, ensure the systems that should be off actually are off. For example: does the radio still come on? Wipers? Etc.?

In the same vein, has anything new been installed lately?

The next test is a lot more tedious. You will need a test light, needle nose pliers (to pull fuses) and the proper tools to remove the negative battery terminal (again).
  • Ignition off
  • Remove the cable from the Negative battery terminal
  • Hook one end of your test light to the Negative battery post
  • Attach the other end to the cable you just removed
  • Again, double check connections to recent installations (radio, GPS, etc)
  • If it lights up very faintly, this is likely the normal drain of the clock. The brighter the light, the bigger the drain.
  • Find your fuse box
  • While keeping an eye on the test light, pull the fuses one by one. Replace the one just pulled before going to the next.
  • When the light goes out (or dims), you will have narrowed the the problem to a specific system. Check the legend on the fuse box for the offending fuse.
At this point there are too many 'What if's'. Which system has the drain will determine the next steps to be taken.

This procedure will allow you to focus in on the problem area. Let me know what you find out.

Hope this helps

Mike
