The amp will drain your battery eventually if it remains powered.

My battery keeps getting drained when my car is not running. auto place said that I have a drain when my car is not running and that my battery andalternator test good. What might be draining my batte


The only way to solve this problem is to isolate which circuit is causing the problem. To do this you must have an amp meter. (one that will read up to 10 amps minimum; I doubt you are drawing more than that) With key off, disconnect the positive cable to the battery and insert amp meter, positive meter cable to positive terminal and negative meter cable to positive cable on car. Normal draw will be in the milliamps. Anything 1/4 amp or more I would consider abnormal. Then star removing fuses (one at a time) until drain disappears.

Battery on 98 Ford Expedition doesn't hold charge


First thing I would do is have someone qualified disconnect the alarm and stereo and start over.
Chances are you have circuits cross-connected and something is draining the battery.

New battry keeps running down


If your battery runs down when the car is off and not running, then you probably have a 12volt drain
killiongthe battery. If your problem occurs even when the car is being driven and used, then your alternator may be the culprit, it may not be charging enough. Attach a voltmeter across the + and - battery terminals. Start the car and let it idle without any accessories on. If you get a reading somewhere between 13.75 - 14.75 volts, your alternator is ok.
To check for a 12volt drain, disconnect the negative battery terminal and slowly scrape it on
the negative battery post 3-4 times. If you see any light to medium sparking as you do that, you probably have a 12volt drain killing the battery. BTW, don't be afraid of being shocked, no chance of that. This is extremely light voltage we're taking about here. Any 12volt drain is best left to a professional to trace down. Oh yes, a defective new battery is possiblity, but highly unlikely.

1989 chevrolet caprice alternator draining battery, and wont start. We replaced the alternator, feul pump, battery, & starter.


There is a circuit staying open that is draining the battery. Chances are it is the ignition switch or the starter relay. Most likely it's the ignition switch. If it stays open the starter circuit continues to draw power even though the car is off. It's under the dashboard above the gas pedal. Someone should be able to test it with a circuit tester to see if it's the problem. Good luck!

there's a good chance that your car battery is getting old. Car batts are good for about 3 years and then they'll work but can drain the battery with accessories left on when the car is not running to recharge the battery.
Have the battery checked... it may be time for a new one.

Battery Drain when parked.


First off, how old is the battery? It is possible it might be stratified and its just no longer holding a charge well. I've had batteries that are 2 or 3 years old and then they just go dead if I don't start them up every day or so. (Some batteries are just made better than others) If the battery is brand new, then check for some possible wiring shorts. Try looking at the engine running in the dark and try moving around the wiring harness to see if by chance you see any sparks or arcs of electricity. Other than that, you might have to have a qualified auto electric mechanic to check it out for any abnormal power drains.

BATTERY DIES OUT IN 2-3 DAYS.


are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

2001 boxter s ,can not keep the battery charge


replace or renew ??chances are that if secondhand you have someone elses problem.how long does it take to run battery down?? have you disconnected battery and put an amp meter between cable and battery terminal to measure discharge ,does battery still go flat when disconnected .do you have a big amplifier in the boot .chances are you have answered your own question.work with elimination as the one thing that can cause a battery to discharge is a diode in the alternator.next is a radio /interior light or boot light ,amplifer in boot for the sound ,,now if the battery goes flat disconnected then renw the battery .or drain the acid out then flush it out with a hose ,swill with distilled water then refill with acid ,sounds drastic but it often works as a bit of paste can short a plate across.have a play because thats all a mechanic would do.And as for a dealer chances are that if you changed these parts yourself then they would not be very coperative to say the least .
