Here is how to detect a drain in system! Use a test light, Hook up test light to the negative terminal on battery. ( unhook terminal first.) connect opposite end of test light to negative on battery. If a drain, light will be on. Start pulling fuses from fuse box. when the test light goes out, that is the problem curcuit. let sit 3to5 minutes before pulling fuses. Good-Day!

Battery runs down with can parked


I'm not certain I understand the problem, but it sounds as though the battery is not charging properly. Check it yourself, or have the charging system and battery checked. With the engine running the battery voltage should read about 14 volts. If it is much lower, the charging system is not working. If the battery goes down with the car just sitting, there is something drawing more current than it should. Easy things to check are for a glovebox light, overhead light, trunk light or underhood light that does not turn off. Normal draw with everything off, after sitting a few minutes, should be less than 100 milliamps. I hope this is helpful.

88 Chevy C3500 7.4L truck has been sitting for 2 years~connected and jumped battery and put gas~drove down the road fine until turned on the lights~truck acted like it wanted to turn off~boyfriend thinks...


I suspect that the battery is dead and when you turned on the lights there is insufficient current from the alternator to run everything so the ignition shut down. Have a load test done on the battery and check for bad cells as a battery sitting unused for 2 years will be sulphated up on the plates.. Fit new battery and reset the CPU with a code reader.

Going down the road runs great then starts loosing charge sit awhile and push off runs great. put new altenater on it i can reve motor up if running lights and starts running good


Either have a bad battery, sometimes they go bad and the symptom is a "self" discharge that will run it down in a few days..
or.
You have something inside the car that's running it down.

The way to check is to unhook the battery for the time that its down and see if the battery is dead when you return. If the battery goes flat unhooked, you have a bad battery. If the battey holds its charge while unhooked you have a drain from the car.

Your car I think was bad about one of the cooling fan relays sticking "on". Just something to be aware of.

Hi my car wont start,after i get a jump it will run that hold day then the next morning nothing will come on no lights anything


your charging system is working okay or you would have to have it jumped more than once a day.you have a bad battery that needs replacing as running it during the day the charging system keeps the battery charged up enough to work.you could have a drain on the battery from something in the car that is not shutting down that you will have to have checked out.or sitting over night the battery runs down to the point that it needs to be jumped started if its an old battery(over5-6years).

How long can you let a new corvette sit before the battery runs down


With a good quality new battery it should be fine for one year or so, type of battery is important also, conventional car batteries tend to lose around 5% of their power each month or so.

Battery go dead after sitting for about 6 hours


first unhook the battery cable and wait 6 hours. If the battery is still charged when you hook it back up then start pulling fuses or relays. That car has so much electrical stuff it will take awhile to pin it down. One thing could be the seatcontrol box under the seat. It controls seat heat, power seats, memory seat. Do the power door locks work ok? A bad switch can drain the battery. How about rear leveling system. Leaky air shocks can make the pump run while the car is sitting. If you can't figure it out get a battery disconnect.
