car battery loosing its charge overnight?

If you need dis-assembly or replacement instructions for any other auto/car part, or you want to ask question related to your car/truck jeep problem then please leave the comment with your details, so I can provide you the required instructions and solutions.

This problem is noticed by many other car users too.The battery drains without driving the car.
It is a common fault these days are more and more extra fittings are loaded to the cars and when proper precautions are not taken it will end up to fault the system.
Hence in case of a battery drain overnight try these checks.
You must check the drain current on your battery after the engine is switched off. The best way to check this out is to connect an ammeter in series to the battery and check. There can be a permissible limit of few milli amps but a large drain can in about 12 hours ( overnight) fully drain the battery no matter how much you have charged it or the system charged it up.
Now disconnect one by one the circuits to centre on the faulty circuit and then the faulty device. This is easy as the fuse can be pulled out one by one till the ammeter reading drops down.
Now it is always possible that directly connected circuits like Clocks, audio/video systems, remote control units , brake lamps park lamp circuits can be possible problem areas.
After the device is identified and battery must be charged up fully and tested overnight.
This details will help.Thanks.---------------

  2. same problem i had to face more often but i heard that its better to replace the battery rather then to charge it thogh Car batteries tend to last longer if located inside the vehicle rather than under the hood and you will rarely ever see one corrode.
