try and find any fuseable links in you wiring harness some times when you ground out a wire it sends out a power surge that will make a fuseable link to draw power even when your car is off. you could even take the battery cables off you battery when the car is running if it dies the charging problem is with your altanator or relays. just a guess hope it helps RK
A battery cannot be drained by a shorted diode when the ignition key is off.
Something is shorted to ground.
depends on a lot of things........is your battery shorted out or is it just dead?
If a battery is "shorted", meaning that its terminals are connected together through a low resistance, high current flows in the connection and the battery becomes discharged very soon. It makes no difference whether any part of the battery is connected to ground.
either something shorted in the computer when re-connecting, or your grammar implies that you are trying to start it with no battery...which obviously would mean you should first re-connect the battery
Cause it is shorted out ,replace it.
Overcharge, often due to a shorted cell.
it gets shorted because distilled water contains some of the chemicals which allow conduction
When a battery is short-circuited the resistance turns out to be zero and a large current flows.
Give it a bath. It'll be shorted out, and it will be squeaky clean.
Yes but not likely. Was ther a huge amount of smoke? is your battery a puddle? if not it hasn't been shorted.
Disconnect battery from vehicle - if this still happens battery is probably shorted internally and requires replacement
Insulated caps can be installed over the exposed terminals to prevent the battery from being shorted out.
Could be a shorted wire, or bad battery.
No, not always, but in most cases yes. If the battery has a cell that is shorted out it may not jump start.
A PARASITIC LOAD IS A SHORTED POSITIVE WIRE GOUNDING TO THE NUETRAL ON YOUR AUTOMOBILE BATTERY. A RAW WIRE IS DRAINING YOUR BATTERY. GOOD LUCK TRYING TO FIND IT.
Shorted diodes in the alternator.
It depends on which diode, but sometimes it can.
you shorted something. is there a wire grounding out somewhere?
if i sccidently shorted the battery car wont start but cranks whats wrong ??
Duh, like no!! Anything like this indicates there is something grossly wrong with your car and warrants immediate repair. You may have shorted out the battery possibly ... or ... the battery was shorted out to begin with. Do not drive a car when there is smoke coming from the engine area ... bad things will happen and then KABOOM, you have a fire or other uncontrollable situation that may put your life and others in danger.
Yes. If the alternator is dead and you drive the vehicle, all the power is coming from the battery and it will eventually drain completely. Also, if a diode is shorted inside the alternator, that can drain a battery.
happened on mine when the battery shorted out against the bonnet
