Why does my battery die every time it rain's?
I bought a new battery for my car, and the first time it rained it died and the car had no
power. I charged the battery and put it back in ( in a very light rain ) and started the car. I
let the car run for a while, but when I came back out to start it a few hours later it was
Sounds like you have a parasitic drain somehow related to moisture. Are you handy with a voltmeter? https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=KF1gijj03_0
your battery is dying very fast were you having the same issue with the old battery?...also what condition are your cables and terminals in? and also is the new battery dead ?...if it is going dead that quick you have a major draw or the new battery might be the issue or you have some major corrosion on your cables and when you charge it you making the cable have good contact at that moment ...also the battery is in the wheel well right next to the front wheel so i would check the cables first
Had a car once that when it rained, water would get in on circuits, short them and leave them wide open to start draining on the battery. Luckily it was still under warranty so the dealer fixed the improperly installed ducting that caused it. Your problem sounds similar
I agree with ytlas. Check for bad insulation on the wiring anywhere wiring can get wet. Unfortunately it's probably going to be in one of the doors. Also look for anything that mysteriously comes on, by itself, with the car parked and off in the rain. My Nephew had a '98 BMW 528i that would blow the interior light fuse whenever it rained. We traced it to a bad wire in the driver's door. To isolate the problem use a garden hose and wet different parts of the car as well. At least that'll narrow down the search area. HTH. -Jim
