My battery keeps draining

Asked by Jun 29, 2015 at 02:14 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 87 300zx and the battery keeps
draining ive had the alternator tested and it
tested good when the battery had charge I
would start the car and it would stay on but
the dash lights don't come on and the
needles don't move occasionally they do
come on when driving I was told recently it
could be a door sensor which I never heard
of but I guess when it's broke it can drain
the battery ive even disconnected the posts
until I wanted to crank the car up and the
battery eventually went dead..... PLEASE

I always reference this video, you need to do some testing to find the exact source of your draw.... v=KF1gijj03_0
