battery drainage

Asked by Mar 07, 2015 at 08:31 PM about the 2006 INFINITI G35 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced my battery and still after 3 or4 hours it will not start.  Mechanics say the
radio is killing the battery.  I have read this is common in G35 Sedans, I have a 2006 and
wonder what it will cost to repair and are there any factory recalls?

Remove fuse going to the radio and have someone check amperage draw at the battery should be less than 2amps please email me back at gumpy1rp@gmail.com

Pull radio fuse, connect a car battery charger and check power draw when battery is drained and then again after 3-4 hours of being charged. Normal radios don't draw that much power unless you've added external amplifiers, etc. I suspect the starter or starter solenoid have gone bad.
