Asked by bretsk10 Apr 16, 2013 at 01:43 AM about the 1992 Toyota Celica ST Coupe

Question type: General

I recently bought a 1992 Celica that runs great. The only issue is whenever I turn the car off the battery
stays on. I don't know how to turn the battery off. I make sure there are no lights on and it that the key is
completely turned off. The car will start right back up after it was just turned off, but after a few hours the
battery eventually dies. Please help with some ideas.

There are relays that are supposed to open when the key is turned off. It sounds like something is holding yours closed.

where would the relay be located at? Could you give me more information about it?

the electric cooling fan is supposed to keep running so the coolant isn't busy making engine stew with your most recent trip, where there isn't any coolant flow, so the fan counts on convection currents and will run until the engine cools down....few hours? your battery is probably more than ten years old meaning it no longer accepts a full charge, time to buy another....the thermal switch what drives the radiator fan clearly needs to be changed, but would get a fresh battery in there first~

The fan should shut off after a few minutes if it comes on at all. This video might help find the drain. How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0
