I am assuming that you have "automatic" seatbelts. If this is the case, you will most likely need to replace the entire offending unit. Until you can afford it, just look for the fuse (marked "Belts" on Fords) and remove it. That will stop the battery drain and will leave the belts functional from a safety standpoint as long as they are in the rear position.
Dead battery, Alternator not charging, Ignition off draw draining battery,.............
Yes. Otherwise you will drain the battery through the ignition points, burning them out prematurely or even welding them together.
Try disconnecting the alternator, could be the diode pack
Then either something is on draining the battery or the battery has a dead cell draining all the rest and must be replaced.
The ignition is draining all the power to start the engine. You may have a dead battery.
A short will not drain the battery it will blow a fuse. It may be the battery has a dead cell, or some light is on draining the battery. It can also be a stuck relay.
I'm having this problem with my daughters car and somewhere I read.. to try turning the automatic seatbelt motor with a torx wrench just an idea here I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS YET. WE'RE GOING TO TRY THIS AND WIND THE SEATBELT TO THE HEAD POSITION THEN DISCONECT THE SEATBELT MOTOR VIA FUSE OR HARD WIRE the seatbelt motor runs when the car is off and drains the battery I hope this works GOODLUCK
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.
Can be any light in the car as in, under hood, trunk, glove box, etc. Can also be a relay that is stuck. Can also be the battery has a dead cell and is running itself down.
If the ignition isn't firing then you're looking at an electrical problem: Bad spark plugs, distributor, cables or battery. If you're frequently draining your battery and needing jump starts, the alternator could be failing as well.
you possibly have something draining the battery when the car is shut off, with the car shut off pull the positive cable off the battery and then just touch the cable to the positive post of the battery and see if you get a spark, if you get a spark you have something electrical draining the battery.
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.
There is a circuit live somewhere.
poor earth from battery to body work, low battery or starter motor needs replacing. are the most common problems
Are the battery wires corroded? If they are, they may not be getting a good connection.
Somewhere in your wiring you have a leak to earth, most likely in your ignition switch but the easiest way to find it is through an auto-leccy. He has the tools to make it easy.
There is an easy way to find out what is draining the battery on your car. Disconnect the positive or negative battery terminal. Not both. Connect a test light between the post of the battery to the cable end of the battery. If your car is draining the batt ery the light will show it. To find out where the drain is coming from just pull fuses until the light goes out. Then you will know what is draining the battery by the function of the fuse you just pulled. For example, if you pulled the fuse for "radio" and the light went out you would know the radio is drawing the current off your battery.
many things can do it suck as junk battery, junk alternator , or leaving anything on in the car
Something is on draining the battery or it has a dead cell and needs replacing.
A battery cannot be drained by a shorted diode when the ignition key is off.
A partial earth
On my espace a wiring fault turns on the ignition circuit at random draining the battery if not spotted. This is without the keys in the ignition. I fitted a battery isolater switch and use this to make sure it dont drain while parked up. seems to happen mostly when frosty etc.
depending on the year I have had issues with a 1990 and a 1992 grand caravan problem was the light in the glove box the contact would turn the light on periodically draining battery
Answer: set windshield wiper control to lo intermittent. Turn on ignition key. Done.
A weak Battery
