When it comes to electrical problems, nothing is sacred, nothing is impossible. So you could have anything at all drawing the system, including an internal short in the battery itself. I would start with the battery, but discnnecting it froim the car, and see if it stays charged overnight, or if it drains. On the car, you can use a 12 volt test light to check for draws on the car by disconnecting the neg battery terminal and putting the test light in-line between the cable and the battery. You will need to touch the cable to the post for 15 minutes and then take it away from the battery, while not breaking contact with the test light so the GEM module will "go to sleep." Then, if the light is illuminated, you have a potential draw. Keep in mind that a 3 0r 4 MA draw is normal for radio, GEM, and PCM keep alive memory. f the draw is excessive, start unplugging fuses until the draw goes away. Yo can eliminate the draw to a sub-system that way. Then once you have found the sub-system involved, you can put the fuses back, and start unplugging modules and componets within that sub-system, until you find the culprit. also it could be brake light switch bad(at the brake padal),brake lights staying on

Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt.

What will bad alternator do to a cars battery and lights?

A bad alternator will have the effect of draining the battery, resulting in dim lights, trouble starting the car and the like. It would be best to replace the alternator as soon as possible and possibly obtain a new battery. This may vary depending on how much the bad alternator has drained it. You can get your alternator and battery checked any time at Auto Zone.

What causes the battery to drain when running?

Defective alternator or voltage regulator. Also possibly the battery is defective with a dead cell.

Battery light comes on and goes off while driving?

You possibly have a loose alternator belt or the alternator is weak. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. It should be 13.5 ? 16 volts. Any less and the alternator is weak and needs replacing. Also make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.
