What drains the battery on an 86 Ford Escort?

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.

Why would your car battery be low after only a few hours?

As far as my experience is concerned, car batteries lower down either because of lack of battery water or due to not properly charging the battery. Check out whether these problems may not be occurring with your battery or consult with an auto electrician or you can know more about this from the following link. --------- You may want to check that your battery has a load on it, which is to say that something is on and draining your battery. Check to see if the glove box light,trunk light or underhood light is staying on. A simple test is to make sure the battery is fully charged, either by driving the car or charging the battery for a few hours. Then disconnect the battery overnight. If the battery is strong when you re-connect it the next day then the battery is not at fault. You have a "draw" somewhere. In other words - something is draining the battery.

After not starting your car for 3 days the battery is being drained If you unhook your battery for those 3 days will it save the battery?

If your battery is good and you know your car is draining it then yes, disconnecting your battery from your car will keep your battery charged for much longer than 3 days. Your battery should stay charged way longer than 3 days in normal conditions being hooked up to your car. You should get it checked out and figure out what is draining your battery so fast.

Why your parking lights stays on in Camry 2007 hybird?
