Had the same problem. Bought a re-conditioned alternator, turned out it was bad. Usually if battery draining, it's alternator or battery or both.
Try draining the oil after the engine has warmed up first.
Mine had an alternator problem not putting out 14 v
Something is on draining your battery overnight. Any light or any relay. It can also be your battery has a dead cell draining it overnight.
start off by checking all door switches. Then check the interior switch on the dashboard. I mean by checking as in bypassing switch or disconntection of the switch. If you have the theater dimmer or the delay dimmers you would check that also.. Thanx Dom
Is the battery being charged by the alternator? You should see 13 volts or higher while the engine is running, otherwise you will need to test the alternator. another answer: the alarm system. get it disconnected by a mechanic--mine was constantly draining the battery on my 95 pathfinder.
Defective alternator, loose alternator drive belt, dead cell in battery, or something is on pulling power from the battery.
many things can do it suck as junk battery, junk alternator , or leaving anything on in the car
Have you had the alternator checked? If an alternator is not working it can acually drain your batt. big time fast.
There are a few things that could cause this problem. It could be the wiring to the alternator, the alternator solenoid, or the wiring.?æ
your alternator ain't charging your battery or a bad connection draining the battery
If the battery is brand-new and I would suspect either the alternator is defective or you have a lightbulb somewhere on the vehicle that is pulling power from the battery. It can also be a relay that is stuck.
Try disconnecting the alternator, could be the diode pack
Your alternator is shot.
Need more info... How old is it? Do you drive short distances? Does it sit around not driven a lot? Check for a short, bad alternator, or fried battery. If you take the car to an alternator shop, they can usually tell you for free if it's the battery or the alternator.
A bad alternator will have the effect of draining the battery, resulting in dim lights, trouble starting the car and the like. It would be best to replace the alternator as soon as possible and possibly obtain a new battery. This may vary depending on how much the bad alternator has drained it. You can get your alternator and battery checked any time at Auto Zone.
Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference in a rebuilt alternator and a brand new one. This is a very common problem.
could be alternator or charging circuit or could be anything got to do with the battery when its draining out loose connection terminal
Dead battery, Alternator not charging, Ignition off draw draining battery,.............
Have you had the alternator tested? Often a bad internal diode can drain the alternator overnight.
most times ther is a short in the circut. maeanig that a wire in the circut that is supposed to be hot at all times, even with engine off, is connecting to ground(body or frame of car) and battery is constantly draining.
your alternator is either week in volts. Use a volt tester. or alternator is now working. replace it. I had same porblem with three batterys to test the alternator turn car on let run on idle and disconnect the positive car should still be running if it shuts off first check all wires on alternator if still connected then alternator is bad TIME TO REPLACE IT.
Dead cell in the battery requiring a replacement battery or some light is on that is draining the battery. Can also be a stuck relay.
