Your 96 dodge caravan had to be jumped off because the headlights were left on now your hazard lights flash if your headlights are not turned on What could be causing the problem?
you most likely have aparasitic drain which is causing your battery to discharge, depending on what is causing the problem, was anything added recently say a new radio spliced into another wire. take a look at any visible wires that are not sealed properly, or your battery needs a good cleaning with baking soda that could cause a drain on the batt which would need to be removed as the acid from the battery could…
What could be wrong if the battery is good and the alternator is good but the battery keeps being drained?
Something is causing a drain on the battery even with the vehicle off and nothing turned on. A good mechanic can do a drain test on the battery to see what may be draining the charge. A dead cell in the battery itself will also cause the battery to go dead. Disconnect the negative battery cable overnight and if the battery is dead the next morning it has a dead cell and must be replaced…
How do you figure out what is causing a drain on the battery battery and alternator are functioning properly?

It can be a dead cell in the battery causing the drain. Disconnect the negative battery cable overnight. If the battery is dead the next morning it has a dead cell and needs replacing. It can also be any light that is staying on overnight. Under hood, trunk, glove box, dome light, etc. It can also be a relay that is stuck.

If your charging a dc battery and reverse the leads what will happen to the battery A- trickle charge B- drain or discharge C- explode?
Both B and C. DC is polarity specific, by reversing polarity with a charger you are causing current to flow backwards through the battery (internal) this could cause the electrolyte to heat up giving off a gas that expands and could eventually cause the battery to explode or just crack and leak. Most electrolytes in batteries are corrosive.
In an battery containing a liquid, such as a car battery, you could either measure the density of the sulphuric acid with a hydrometer, or you could conduct a cranking test. Dry cell batteries do not usually show a significant voltage drop until they are near the end of their life. One can roughly estimate this by creating a small drain, but this will, by definition, drain the battery if left on too long.
Actually doing ANYTHING on your ipod touch whether it be listening to music, or pressing some buttons will drain the ipod battery. some things drain less battery then other things, but they all drain battery. (for example, listening to music does not drain as much battery as watching a video.) I do not know any buttons on the ipod touch called the hold button, but if you are talking about the button in the front…
It could be two things. As you know, the alternator charges the battery so it will not drain. If the alternator is not working properly to charge the battery, the battery will continuously drain. Have the alternator tested at your local Auto Parts store (NAPA or Advance Auto) If it is good, have the battery checked.
