In the 2000 KIA SEPHIA, the door has two spring-loaded sensors that do not close all the time, causing the dome-light to stay lit all night. Also, I had to replce the alternater because it could not keep-up with the air-conditioner and the radio and day-time drive-lights at the same time. My clue was the check-engine-light and the over-drive light always on. At the end the parking-brake lights and then finaly the battery-light came on.

dead cell in the battery or something is on pulling power from the battery.

Shorted diodes in the alternator.

If no light is on and no relay is stuck then the battery has a dead cell and needs replacing.

I'd recommend you do a battery test and charging system test. The battery would be my first suspect.

Yes, if the relay was stuck it would drain the battery.

Yes possible. If switch does not open on engine shut down battery will drain If switch does not close on start up battery will not charge

check to see if your battery connections are correct. if you have a bad ground cable it could drain any battery quickly

Dead cell in the battery which will require it to be replaced. Or, you may have a light on somewhere pulling power from the battery. Can also be a relay that is stuck.

Bad Battery. Bad Alternator. Lights left on by mistake. Something left running. Exc.

Can be the battery has a dead cell which will require the battery be replaced. Can also be anything on the vehicle that is on pulling from the battery. Any light that is on or any relay that is stuck will drain the battery. Check under hood light, trunk light, glovebox light, interior lights, etc.

Because if you reversed the polarity at the battery it would blow the fuse through which current flows to the drain.

A car battery in any car would drain due to a short in the electrical system.

It won't. Look for a light that is on or a stuck relay. Also a dead cell in the battery will cause it to run down overnight.

Use of the side and rear hatch doors have a dramatic drain on the battery. We have found that whenever we go on trips, or camping, where the doors are frequently opened and closed, the car the battery will drain. So far, our only solution is to disconnect the battery when the car will not be driven or charged between frequent door use.

A light in your car might be on, running down the battery!!

A bad alternator/generator would cause a 'no charge' in the system, which would drain the battery while running. Also a shor tin the wiring may cause a false indicator light.

User Avatar

Yes, that would definitely drain the battery.

No, why would he have a mentor? His mentor would be his father.

No, a bad rear sensor to an air suspension compression would not directly make a motor not work. It can cause a battery to drain which would cause starting issues.รŠ
