Why is the electrical power draining?
Car wouldn't start and would not take a jump. Battery only 8 months old. Took
battery down for exchange and they said battery was fine. Bought new battery
anyway. After putting new battery in car would not start but would take a jump. Drove
and worked fine. No dim lights. All electrical seemed fine, and would restart a few
times during the day. Turned car off last night and woke up this morning to no
electrical power. Dead. What is wrong with my 300m?
Have you had the alternator checked?
No. At this point I cannot even get it to a place to have it checked. But last night while driving, using a/c, headlights, radio etc. there were no electrical problems. No dim lights etc. I am not an expert but it does not act like a bad alternator.
Did not say bad,but may be eating your battery,some time,s alternator,s will charge,but they will all so,demagnitize the amerture,and draw power,why they are not running.
Hi Mark. My instincts tell me you are probably right. I will put a new alternator in. The one that is in there is at least 7 years old and possibly came with the car in 2002. (I bought the car used in 2007). Thank you for your help.
