Once a capacitor is charged, it should not be draining the battery, are you sure it is not something else in the system?

How is 2001 Mustang GT parasitic draw on battery related somehow to FU 27 and FU39? Battery drains overnight but I cannot narrow down a faulty component. has an article if you Web search your car with fuse 27 and 32 as part of the search. It blames the GEM as part of the problem(wiper) and also points out that the radio has several power feeds. Fuse 27 is hot all the time, but fuse 32 is only hot in ACC or Run. So as long as you can test fuse 32 to be hot in only Acc or Run, it should not drain the battery in Off position. You might want to test the ignition switch to verify it is really turned off.

The all mustangs article had different symptoms, as you did not indicate whether the fuses popped.

The wiper motor is suppose to derail and turn off. If you can unplug the wiper motor overnight and the battery stays up, you would know that it is either the wiper motor or wiper control. The radio is on the other fuse circuit. But whether the radio can drain a battery in a short time, you need to measure draw, but if the fuse pops, the battery should stay up. Again, disconnecting a circuit like a radio, and then having the battery stay up, would point to the radio circuit being at fault.

Why is my clock and radio staying on after I remove the key in my jeep Liberty 2007

Modules or Relays are not going to sleep
or timing out & running the battery down

Have to leave the doors closed up to 1/2 hour with a
an amp meter on the battery & pull one fuse at a time
to isolate the circuit

Battery drain overnight

Usually if battery is good. Its usually a parasitic drain. You can use a standard multimeter, and put across each fuse top. Two little tips. If you see a voltage even a little bit. That's a drain. Find what fuse go's too. And diagnose.

Radio stay on after Jeep is turned off

The remedy consists of finding out the real cause of rapid battery discharge. It isn't the clock. Could be a failing starter.

Removing power to onstar

The amount of Drain from On-Star is Extremely Minimal, You probably have another drain that is causing your drain. I would Troubleshoot that drain. A drain of 50mA is acceptable

I have a current drain which kills my battery if my 2003 vTundra is not used for a week. We know that if we dissconnect the wire to the fuse box the drain stops. We have pulled all the fuses one at a time,...

all vehicles since the 80s have a continuous drain, it keeps the ecm , radio keyless etc, anything that requires memory, although one week is a little short, i would wonder if the battery is not getting a full charge?? like only used on short trips. disconnect the neg terminal and bridge it with a test light, it should glow bright for a few seconds then dim, that is normal , if it stays bright pull fuses one at a time , you should find the circuit that is staying closed
