Customer Question

I have a 2006 Honda oddessy that keeps draining my battery.i took it to 2 different shops and the first one said both battery and the alternator was ok. the second one said the alternator was bad and charged me 620.00 dollars to replace it. I still have the same problem, the vsa warning light comes on when I put enough charge on the battery to start the vehicle,
JA: Have you tested the battery? Do you hear a clicking when you try and start the car?

Hi this is Dave and I'm here to help. It sounds like something electrical is staying power it on even when you have the car off do you ever see any lights still on either for the radio or inside the car even when you have the car turned off?
