what is draining my batteries

Asked by Apr 21, 2014 at 08:37 PM about the 2000 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't happen all the time, but sometimes I park the truck, go back two or three days latter and they are dead.  Today I got in the truck and it wouldn't start and there was a relay or something clicking behind the radio.  Has anyone got a clue?

the best way to check it is to put a metter on the battery....then take out one fuse at a time until you find whats pulling the charge.
