Assuming you have checked the obvious (battery, alternator), check for sneaky things that stay on like glove box light, trailer brake controller, stereo amps, etc.

Check if any interior lights are left on when leaving vehicle, if none found will need to eliminate other causes, is the battery holding charge, which is different to being drained, is the alternator charging rate ok , start there and see how things are

Parasitic battery drain - likely source

Check the number 07 fuse under the rear passenger seat. It serves the Truck Body Controller 2 (TBC 2). The controller fails & is a known source of intermittent battery drain. The will not be blown, it is just serving a bad controller that is not turning things off as it should.

It's a 07 Hyundai Accent. If it was the alternator, when you start the car and pull the battery cable the car should shut off but it don't. What can it be that draining my battery over night.

an alternator that is charging will keep the engine running if the battery is removed
removing a battery lead when the alternator is running is a bad idea as it can cause diode failures in the rectifier and other possible electronic failures

you have reasons such as bad battery cells, boot light still on , glove box light still on, interior light still on, relays nor working properly and still drawing current, faulty ECM, alternator diode failed

My 07 impala has a drain on the battery had to pull four fuses the radio ,int lmp /dim pnl , display and BCM disconnected the BCM and still had to pull fuse can anyone help please

Usually the BCM in cases of draining battery. One of the functions routed through it may have an issue. A diagnosing auto electrician should be able to help, but you will need a good one. Check for recommendations

I parked my 07 cobalt ltz the battery drained and wont take a jump now it wont start or crank

First clean the battery posts, to much corrosion cause cause a no jump start condition. Sometimes a cell or two in the battery is dead. This is why you can't jump start the car. Replace the battery.

07 Honda Ridgeline Battery goes dead overnight - new battery

Thats probably your current drain.
See if you can find the relay and what it controls.
Pull it out and see if the current drain stops by using a test light between the battery and one of the cables.

Battery keeps going flat in ford focus 07, when keys are turned to step 2 in ignition battery, oil, and engine lights are on but my car has only just had an mot and full service from ford 4 weeks ago...


first thing, whan you turn the keys to step 2 in ignition, the warning lights are supposed to come on, so you can see that the lights are actually working. they then go out when the engine is running.
as long as they go out when the engine is running, then they are not a problem.
if the battery has only been going flat since the service in Fords, then take it back, and complain.
ask them exactly what was done, and keep complaining until they do something.
if they have caused a drain on the battery, then it is up to them to fix it.
