My 1996 Dodge Maxivan's battery goes dead, sometimes in a few days, sometimes in a week. I just installed a new battery. What is the procedure for checking for a drain on the battery? I undersatand you check for amp draw, but how? I have a multitester.
Most common problem for batteries dying is a loose terminal. Make sure
both are tight on the battery before you waste time doing anything else.
I had the same problem in my car once, and it was a loose terminal, but when I took it off, it fell in three pieces...So yeah, definitely check the small stuff before you do anything lol
I checked out the drain as you fella's suggested and found a BIG draw on
the fuse marked REAR WINDOW HEATER. I have no rear window heater... the
window was replaced with one that opens when it was converted into a
motorhome by "Home & Park" in Canada. They must have left the wire rattling
around in the wall somewhere!
Thanks to all those who responded! Couldn't have done it without your help.
