Asked in Car Batteries, Ford Windstar
Battery goes dead on 2003 ford sport windstar?
Ok i have replaced the battery and two alternators and replaceds the rear hatch light switch. still when i connect a light between the negitive battery post light comes on. Power continues to drain the battery over 4 days its dead. Why is it still draining? If you have checked every single light on the vehicle and none of them are on draining the battery it is more than likely a relay that is stuck. Check every relay in the vehicle.
Why does your battery drain on your 1976 Cadillac deville?
A battery that runs down overnight is normally caused by a dead cell in that battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. It can also be caused by any light that is left on, on the vehicle. Dome light, under hood light, trunk light, glovebox light, or even brake lights that our on due to a sticking brake light switch. A relay that is sticking can also cause this. Disconnect the negative battery cable and let the vehicle sit overnight. If the battery is still charged the next morning then you know the battery is good. If the battery is dead then you know the battery has a dead cell and must be replaced.

Asked in Car Batteries, Toyota Sequoia
Why is your Toyota sequoia battery keeps losing power?
It is more than likely a dead cell in the battery. If this is the case the battery must be replaced. It can also be that a light on the vehicle somewhere is on pulling power from the battery. Can be under hood light, trunk light, glovebox light, courtesy light, or even the brake lights. Can also be that you have a relay that is stuck closed. This can be a Power Seat rely, power window relay, or any other relay vehicle.

Asked in Car Batteries, Kia
Why does your kia carnival battery keep draining?
Something is pulling power from the battery. I assume you checked the battery to see if it is ok and does not have a bad cell. Can be any light on the vehicle that is on. Under hood light, trunk light, courtesy light, glovebox light, trunk light, or even a brake light. Can also be a relay that is stuck.

Asked in Buick LeSabre
Something is draining your 2003 Buick Le Sabre battery the battery has been checked out numerous times is a good battery the car will sometimes go for two or three days and the battery will be fine?
Install a test light in series with the - battery cable. If light is on there is an active circuit in vehicle. Remove fuses one at a time until light goes out - that will be the active circuit. could be trunk or glove box light or other hidden accessory. At times the voltage regulator circuit will not open on vehicle shut down - which would cause a drain on the battery.

Asked in Chevy S-10
Why is the battery light on on your 1994 Chevy s10 pickup?
The light is telling you that there is a problem with the charging system. You are running off the battery and will eventually get stuck with a dead battery if you continue to drive that vehicle with the battery light on. Drive to your local auto parts store and they will test the charging system for you at no cost. You are probably in need of an alternator.

Why does your battery keep going dead after your car sits for 2 weeks it is a 2005 GMC envoy?
The parasitic load on this vehicle will discharge a FULLY CHARGED battery in 21 days. What is the condition of your battery and the climate to which it is exposed? You can check to see if the load on this vehicle is excessive. Parasitic (Sp.?) should be 0.07 amps. If over this check as suggested by next answer. Something is drawing power. Possibilities are a under-hood light, courtesy light, glove box light, etc. Another possibility is that the battery needs replacing. vehicle is 2005, is battery the original? sounds like the battery needs replacing a battery that sits idle does not have much of a life span
What will drain the battery on a 260 e Mercedes Benz overnight?
A dead cell in the battery, any light on the vehicle that is pulling power from the battery, or a stuck relay. Check all the lights on the vehicle including the brake lights to make sure they are not on after you shut the vehicle down. To see if you have a dead cell in the battery, disconnect the negative battery cable overnight. If the battery is dead the next morning then the battery has a dead cell and must be replaced. If not then start looking for a light that is on or a relay that is stuck closed. Can be a power window, power seat, power door lock, or fuel pump relay.
