My 2013 Ford F150 keeps losing a battery charge. I had the battery changed and that did not fix the problem. It also effected my transmission for a time. Thers is something that keeps running that keeps running and draining the battery. It's in the shop and they want to give it back without finding the problem. Anybody else out there had this problem.
Plenty of people have, it's called parasitic draw. You need to start probing the circuits one at a time till you find the issue. Suprised the shop didn't want to spend the time to find it.
Thanks Tom, I don't understand why a dealership the size of this one would not know how to fix the problem. I better call them back.
Tom is correct,have to go on a search of what is doing this,a lot of shop,s don,t want to do this because in some case,s they spend to much time trying to track it down,and cost you for time ,and may not even find the issue,my buddy had one doing this,he finally gave up,and ran a flip switch into his truck where he could kill battery power when not in use.
Sounds like it's time to trade. Go figure a brand new truck......
Did you purchase the truck new from the dealership? Might still be under warranty, cost nothing to ask. Or, as TST recommended begin checking. There are lost of videos on the internet showing to detect the draw. It is not difficult, sometimes just a little time consuming.
