Every battery will loose some charge when its not in use. The first thing I'd do would be to put a voltmeter on the battery when its fully charged and then crank it up. If the voltage drops, you probably have a bad regulator

You've got something that's pulling from the battery. It could be as simple as a loose connection or bare wire touching the frame, it could also be a bad relay, and this will generally show when testing for an open circuit. Check any added electrical devices. Also, keep in mind that the system on a Harley doesn't charge the battery, it only keeps it topped at where it's at. So, if you have a half charge on the battery, you can ride to Hawaii and back, and you'll still only have a half charged battery. This is where a battery tender comes in helpful for garage time. I'm afraid you're just going to have to start tracing wires, and checking relays.

Why does my car battery keep going nearly flat.even after I buy new 1 week latr it drains or alternater cant keep volts up


with car running disc the positive battery cable and if car dies you have a bad alternator, if the car keeps running than it should be good, let it run for a while. Then you need to look for something that is on and draining your battery.

Something is draining my batteries and we have to keep jumping it.


I would think it may be something bad in a Relay , it may not be working and its keep consuming energy , check the relay box in the engine area beside the battery. You have to check each to see which one is not working. I ll check this first going to other step.

you have a short/grounding out issue or if you have the lead style battery terminals any sort of crack in them will drain the battery as well.

Why is my battery draining


Unhook the battery and have someone sit in the car while you touch the contacts to the battery. + pos. If something is stuck on, draining your battery, you should hear is pop on when you make the connection leading you to your problem. Or maybe its just a defective battery
