I have a 2001 ford explorer sport. In the last week
my ford has been losing battery power after the
car has been turned off which is causing me to
jump start it. Only thing I see weird is that my
(door lock and unlock) switch stay's lite. I could
really use some help.
There's definitely a draw on your battery eg interior light, brake switch causing brake lights to stay on , see how much amp is drawing on your battery first
Look for something mistakenly left on like your interior light switch or courtesy lamp switch. Also check that exterior lights like assist lamps on doors or mirrors go off after exiting the vehicle. If no cause can be found, then proceed like Terry said and determine the level of draw on your battery. Once you verify that there is a current draw, begin by pulling circuit fuses one at a time to determine what circuit is causing the problem. Then go after items on that circuit until you find the problem. Good hunting!
