battery is dying overnight. battery is new altenator is 6 months old. no lights are being left on. someone mentioned lighting module. my remote car starter stopped working 2weeks before problem.
You have been cursed with the most annoying problem a car have and there's no easy way to find it... finding it usually involves a meter, a fuse puller (pull fuse and see what the meter does) and patience
Thank you I noticed after car was running for about 15 min. Alternator was struggling causing engine to slow down. May try to change under warranty. Will let you know.
Normally an alternator will make a "whining" noise when heavily loaded but not bog the engine down. I would pull the remote fuse ... leave it off over night
Is That fuse labeled remote fuse?
