Sounds like there's a leak in one of the shocks, or an air line, or the height sensor is bad. This will cause the compressor to run excessively and kill the battery. HTH. -Jim


I agree with the previous poster. Check the rubber around the rear shocks for oil and cracks... if that's present do replace the shocks and that should resolve your troubles>>>Good Luck SEMPER FI

I like it.

check the power seat compression for leaks or the power windows performances after checking the connection from battery to alternator.
