car battery is dead the next day
suspected cause: somethign is draining the battery
battery diagnosis: the battery is good, after jump starting and
running a few minutes the car can be turned off and let sit a while
and later the car will turn over very fast and strong and start right
up. Interior lights are strong and bright.
glovebox, hood, trunk (removed)
brake lights are off, headlights are off,
I stopped to make sure the interior lights turn off when you leave.
They turn off properly.. none the less i pulled the fuse, and the
problem persists still.
Fuel pump turns on when the key is on, and turns off when the key is
off, this is from a hearing/sound diagnosis though.
So now i'm thinking.. a couple of different thoughts..
1> I saw a reference that a headlight reminder could be drawing the
current.. so where is that located on this car?
2 > put a voltimeter on the battery.. and pull fuses one by one and
see which one causes a jump in the indicator, letting me know which
circuit the problem lies in.
I have 4 more questions:
1> anyone know of a common problem this year/make/model is known for
concerning this issue?
2> What other items are connected to the positive that cold be drawing
power... power seats, door locks, dome light delay.... uhmm?
I pulled the fuses for the door locks, dome light.. problem still
4> Is there a better way/procedure to diagnose the problem?
