Possible is the clock. The battery might not hold charge.
-How long you have this battery...?
-Each battery's life is last Only 5 Years.
-Here is a sample test:
Let the engine run for about 15 min, turn it off. Disconnect both battery's cables and hook up a voltmeter to it.
How many volt you first test. and then wait for 10-30 min and test again to see how much you get.
If it's lower than first test then the battery doesn't hold charge.
Time to get new one.

SOURCE: Digital clock on radio is displayed all the time

Those Luminas all did that. I ran a taxi fleet for awhile that used Luminas and they all had that clock displayed 24/7. It didn't cause problems though, unless we left other things on, or our battery connections were less than perfect. The side post battery was more problem than you might think. Good luck. TT

Obvious that something is drawing down the battery...Put a test light between the negative cable and the negative post of the battery (remove cable first) start pulling fuses till light goes out. That will tell you what system is drawing...you can then begin looking for the actual problem. If all fuses pulled and light remains on ,chances are you have an internal alternator problem.

Batteries dead...no beeps, drained! I had optima batteries ($468 worth) that we're two months old. Replaced optimas and the truck started up fine. 4 hours later the EXACT same thing happened.


Sounds like you have a draw on the batteries. If your alternator has grounded a diode it will suck the power out of your batteries in no time. Easiest way to tell is to pull one of your negative battery cables and put a test light between the cable and the battery post. If you have a bright light on the test light, you are pulling a large power draw. You should have a very dim light as the only power draw should be coming from the clock, radio memory, and alarm. If you do have a bright light on the test light, remove the power cable to the alternator. If the light goes dim, you need to replace your alternator. If it stays bright, you still have a large draw, but now you need to track down the short. You can pull fuses in the distribution center one at a time until the light dims, this will tell you what circuit has the short. But you will need to trace the problem to find what needs fixing.

New battery trickle charges and will start on a jump. Why is it dead again the next morning?


Unlikely cassette clock is draining the battery, but there may be other drains.
Pull all the fuses, and while the key is out, use an amp meter to measure draw though where each fuse goes....

Xg300 parasitic draw, located the 2 fuses that have the draw on them, how do i fix it


parasitic draw should remain at 50 milli amps or less or .05 amps this needs to be checked with an amp meter with the battery terminal disconnected and the power drain going through the amp meter keep in mind the circuits your testing may take up to an hour or two to fully go to sleep there is no easy way to test these multi circuits it takes years experience to troubleshoot these

2003 Honda odyssey fuse 13 under hood draw 40a I pulled fuse13 passenger side marked clock, backup out and draw went away . .radio is disconnected. goes dead overnight???


ok , i dont believe fuse 13 draws 40amps, sorry.

did you use an ammeter, and if not an ampclamp meter this is harder.
here is a page that shows all ways to find phantom drains.

http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html


12x40 is near 500 watts, no way, if you had drain link that
there would be
1: huge light.
2: huge heat
3: or huge noise.
for sure. 500watts dont just fly way like a bird, not in this world.
no lie we can find, it, but first tell what tools you have.
really.

Underhood fusebox fuse #13 50 amp what is it for


The large MAXI fuses in the engine compartment fuse block are the MAIN fuses. They supply voltage to several other fuses or circuits.

MAXI Fuse #13 in your 1996 Ford Ranger is supposed to be a 30 Amp fuse (not a 50 Amp) according to the power distribution diagrams as well as the fuse block detail diagram. This fuse supplies voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) power relay and to the oxygen sensor heater circuits.

Please note that it is NORMAL for this fuse to cause a draw on the battery during vehicle operation and also after engine shut down. The OBD-2 oxygen sensor heater circuit monitors run after engine shut down and key off. This can take up to 45 minutes to complete. After the O2 heater monitor has run, the PCM will go into sleep mode.

When the PCM goes into sleep mode, the battery draw from this fuse will be reduced greatly. If you are performing "ignition-off-draw" tests trying to figure out why the battery keeps going dead, it is best to use an ammeter that has a 1 or 2 amp scale. You should set-up for the test using a shunt bar. Wait for 45 minutes to an hour for all of the computer systems in the vehicle to go into sleep mode, then open the shunt. Your computer memory, radio pre-sets, clock, etc. will continue to draw without ever shutting completely off. Any draw under 300 Milliamps is considered "acceptable". It is my experience that most vehicles have an ignition-off-draw of somewhere near 150 Milliamps.

The underhood fuse box diagram can be found on page 314 in the 1996 Ford Ranger Owner's Manual.

Have an '85 XJ6. If it sits for a few days the battery is dead. Where do i start?


You first have to determine if it is a charging of the battery issue, or the battery itself, or if there is an unintended drain on the battery while sitting.
You can check if the alternator is charging good, by putting a voltmeter on the battery while engine is running. Voltmeter should read over 13 volts, somewhere between about 13.2 volts and tops about 14 volts, or just over. Anything less than 13 volts, and the alternator is not up to par, not charging the battery sufficiently.
If the battery is a little old, and beyond its warranty, it may just be too old to take a full charge, or it might have a dead cell. You can have the battery tested to see if it is still good.
If the alternator and battery are both good and working properly, you can check for an overnight drain with just a simple testlight. Everything in car should be off. Now take off the battery negative terminal and connect the testlight between the negative cable end and the battery negative post. If you have anything draining the battery while it sits, the testlight will light up brightly. If no light, or a very dim bulb, the system is good. A dim light would just be computer and clock memory, a very small draw, like milliamps, and should not be enough to run the battery down.
If you have a bright light on the tester, just start pulling fuses out one at a time, till light goes out. The circuit for the fuse that turned the testlight off is the problem circuit. Something on that circuit should be off and not drawing power, but it is.
Good luck.

Significant battery draw on my 2007 Honda Odyssey until I remove the fuse labeled "Back Up, ACC". 40A square type fuse. what circuit does this fuse protect?


Fuse #15 "BACK UP/ACC" (40 Amp) in the Underhood Fuse/Relay Box
protects the circuits leading to Fuse #7 "BACKUP" (7.5 Amp) in the Underhood
Fuse/Relay Box and also fuses (#5 "RADIO" (10 Amp), #6 "INTR LIGHT" (7.5 Amp),
#7 "BACK UP" (7.5 Amp), #8 "not used", and #9 "FR ACC SOCKET (10 Amp)
in the Driver's Fuse/Relay Box.
To further narrow down the source of your draw, pull each of these fuses one at a time.
No, that was not a "typo" There are 2 fuses marked "BACK UP" and are both 7.5 Amp and one is
in the Underhood Fuse/Relay Box and the other is in the Driver's Fuse/Relay Box. (I checked this 3 times just to make sure.)

Battery goes dead on 2004 pacifica


There is obviously a draw from somewhere, and if your dealer doesn't have a mechanic who knows how to narrow it down to the circuit causing the problem, then I'd question there ability. With that said, when all else fails, you simply remove negative connection off battery first, then positive. Take a 12 volt test light & secure one end to the + clamp or connector, and the other end to the battery+ post. Now connect your negative back up to the battery as it was. If that test light, lights up, there is a draw. It will be brighter, the more draw there is. Your going to have some, just from your radio memory alone, but now comes the fun part. All you do is pull the fuses one at a time, if light goes out, or dim's you've found a draw. When you have a real hard one to narrow down, you make sure you know where they all go back to, whether by your map at fuse box, or your own notes, and you pull them all out, and light should go out for sure, if not, there is another circuit or panel, or relay drawing the current. If it goes out, you start putting them back in one at a time, and when the light comes back on bright, you found the circuit. Mark that one down, pull the fuse back out, light off, now do the rest that you haven't checked yet, just to see if there is more than one draw causing the problem, if there is, mark it down, pull it out & continue on until all done. Now you/they narrowed it down or isolated the circuit causing the problem.
