my car is killing my battery

50

Asked by Mar 19, 2012 at 02:24 PM about the 1999 Chrysler 300M 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: General

I have replaced my battery two times and each time about 3 days later it killed it.  The alternator has been checked and is fine...so is the starter.  Someone said it might be my dome light or my door lights coming on when I don't know it.  Where is the fuse located so I can test this theory out?

One way to help narrow down this problem is to pull out all the accessory fuses that you can do without. Try that then over time add one fuse at a time until you can determine the source of electrical draw. Your manual should have a schematic for all the fuses in your car. Some things you should be able to pull the fuses on are; power windows, power locks, courtesy lights, parking lights, heater motor, A/C, heated seats, backup lights, sunroof etc. If you dont have a manual repost and I can get you all the fuse locations. Good Luck
