summary of discharging battery overnight.
Daughter drove it to work. 6 hours later battery dead…about Midnight, a week ago Friday.
Be too busy to test it thoroughly, I put in a new battery that was a week ago Saturday.
My daughter drove it Saturday. By Sunday morning, a week ago, the battery was dead again.
I full charged the battery. Started the car. It ran fine. I looked for any lights on in trunk, dome, etc. All were off.
Went to Auto Zone to have the charging system tested and battery. Both tested good.
Drove it back home, pulled into my garage, to look for possible causes that would drain the battery when it was not in use or running. To my surprise, with the key in my hand, the headlights and parking lights flashed…then the cooling fan started with second cooling fan turning on….pulled the neg. cable.
I took a nap…with the engine complete cold. I put the negative cable back on within minutes the headlights flashed and the cooling fans came on…the key is in my hand.
Google some possible causes. DRL and grounds behind kick panels. Inspected DRL and grounds…both looked fine…cleaned grounds to be sure.
That is where the discharging battery problem, when not running and key out, stands today.
